Great weather last week:
Las Vegas to Pahrump, Shoshone (Crowbars for lunch), Badwater, Stovepipe Wells, then home via Beatty (homemade ice cream at the nut and candy store).
BTW, fuel prices at Stovepipe Wells was much better than Shoshone ($4.499) or Furnace Creek ($4.409)
Dang. If you were a fashion loving woman I can only imagine how many shoes you would own.
I really like the CB1100 and would probably own one if I didn't REALLY love dirt and gravel roads. I hope you enjoy the bike and keep it for at least a few more months.
“the 2018 edition of the DVNR will be held at Panamint Springs Resort, CA on March 22 to 25 (Thursday to Sunday).
Proud to say this is our 13th event......and we denoobed hundreds of new riders....:lol3
This is a camping event and meet-up of dual sport and adventure riders. Riding is whatever you and your friends want to do. The riding is so plentiful that all you have to worry is having enough fuel to get you there and back to the nearest available fuel.
Our goal is to facilitate the event that will provide an opportunity for beginners and those lacking experience or skills to become better and safer riders. It is also the place to meet other riders with the same or similar skill level.”
I'm going to the ADV Death Valley nOOb weekend.
Hope to take the TW as well as my 450EXC.
Not many better opportunities to get guided rides in DV by folks who have been there before.
Pick your ride/loop, someone is bound to be going there.
This ADV gathering ISN'T WARPED, which is a much different atmosphere.
I apologize for previous negativity r.e. the ADV Rally.
My concern is the base located out of Panamint Springs means a long daly blacktop commute out and back to enjoy riding areas well suited for a TW. A TW's stock fuel tank just does not have the range for worry-free exploring into the remote parts of the park or adjacent areas.
Our TWs would be little fish in a big pond of long distance machinery, although meeting some of the characters might be nice.
Basically the rally is a bit too big and a little too organized for my tastes, my tenancy would be to camp more remotely with replenishment provisions and take a slower pace exploring non-commercial options.
A few times, we have ventured out in less-than ideal weather patterns and had to hunker down among a grove of trees or whatnot, to wait out the passing storm.
I've always thought it would be great to have some sort of packable shelter that one could deploy fairly quickly, that would provide...
The "third times a charm Cow Mtn ride" planning thread part 2 rescheduled from Jan.
Whoops like I already goofed up the title, should have said 4th time is the charm. oh well

I am trying this again. I would like to make the Moab 2020 ride, but I live across the country in the southeast. So, if there is anyone willing and wanting to either caravan, carpool, etc. from around here to there for some epic riding, please let me know. Best case would be a split where we...
As it seems there are several tw folks that snowbird a bit down there, was thinking we need a sticky.
As I plan to head down that way in a few weeks it would be nice to hook up with fellow riders.
I would like those that are there to send me a PM so I can get the have too's and get the...
