    Is this an actual graveyard? I would like to be buried somewhere warm when my time is up.

    This is a memorial dedicated to dead motorcyclist, not an actual graveyard. If you’re looking for warm, the Mojave definitely has you “covered”

    The stick caught between brake lever and frame can be prevented with what is referred to as a "Brake Snake", a cable or chain from tip of brake lever extending foreward to skidplate or frame.

    I keep breaking my home made ones when they take a good brush hit. Last summer got thoroughly caught on a green aspen sapling. Unlike the dry desert trash that could be snapped the living tree sapling needed to be cut out with a Leatherman saw blade since I didn't have a big Allen wrench to otherwise remove brake pedal assembly.

    Great video with nice man made features not yet vandalized by lesser examples of humanity.

    Thank you

    There’s no shortage of places to stage, just depends how long of a ride you’re looking for.

    So far, I’ve staged from the 58 & 395 side. I always check OnX Hunt or Gaia to make sure I’m on BLM.
