LAB2V --Must do, dual sport ride.

Anyone riding this event this year? I went last year and had a great time; the banquet is the best part.. the stories were great.

I even spent 6 hours in the hospital after lunch and still made it to Barstow before dark.

Not opposed to just riding day two or even staying in vegas until after the weekend traffic goes away.. that was a very very long weekend of driving and riding.. and I want to do it again!

If I ride day one I'm going to turn around and go get my truck and bring it back to Barstow.. no way in hell I'm driving 4-5 hours out of vegas back to LA..

It took me nearly 18 hours to go from vegas back to barstow and then back home again.. (traffic)

The trick to getting back to LA from Lost Wages is leave early in the morning. Get coffee as soon as the coffee shop opens at the Orleans and head out.

You'll be back in LA by 9am.

Or just follow the power lines back to LA on your bike.

Heading back on Sunday and coming through Death Valley has been the best day of the weekend for me the last three years.

Always a good time, it's pretty challenging, especially if you take all the hard ways.


It is also pretty fun to stand in the check in line at a hotel all covered with dirt and mud. If you get caught in the rain, even more so. *squelch*

This will be the first year I've done this ride. I plan on just cruising. Taking a heavier bike and all. No need to hit all the gnarly shit, been doing that forever.

Looking at the sight, 344 spots left. With the cost of joining the AMA and the cost of the ride, thinking of just riding from Barstow to Vegas on the second day only. The staying till Monday of course.
