As of 2/16/14, oldbmw reports "no snow on South Pass and it is easy to ride." No report from him on Hunter Mtn or North Pass as he did not ride there.

Hmmm...Friday Harbor eh? Left the PNW 20 years ago but grew up boating in the San Juans and Canadian Gulf islands.

Are you coming down to DV for a ride?

Oh, and we haven't gotten enough rain or snow fall to do jack on the drought.

Wildose Cyn in the Park is open, top and bottom gates are open.

There are County closed signs on a saw horses on the County portion of the road just above the Panamint Valley road but road is passable with some sand, gravel, and rocks on it.

About 20 of us Honda Valkyrie riders will be in Death Valley on Sat/Sun this weekend and staying in Beatty Sat night. The weather looks perfect.

20 Valkyrie's rolling down the road would be quite a sight. Be sure to post some pictures if you wind up riding some of the dirt sections of the roads under repair.

Your group is probably not planning on riding to The Race Track.

I have other bikes for dirt. These guys are over 700 pounds and would not be fun to pick up.

I know what you mean. My street bike is even heavier. So many great bikes these days.

Harassed by angry rangers mad at Jerry Counts

I was riding this week end with two other riding buddies just out of Trona, CA on the Escape Route on a legal trail with legal bikes when we were stopped by a Ranger ready to ticket us for being involved in an illegal Count Down dual sport ride promoted by Jerry Counts with out proper permits. We had to talk for quite some time to finally convince the Ranger that we were not part of the group riding in the Death Valley Dual Sport. What's up with that?

To quote Peter Fonda, "I just want to ride my machine and not get hassled by the "Man"........

Hey Jerry...........pull the permits next time!!!!

The other riders in the Dual Sport ride we met at Trona Valero got two tickets each rider. Sheeeesh

The Escape route is outside the NPS boundary, that angry NPS ranger had no jurisdiction.

Nobody said NPS except you. Same rules on BLM land.
