Rode through there middle of November headed down to LA from Beatty. I need to schedule more time to just ride some of that area. Let me say it is a bit different from Houston! Have fun.

I'm halfway there. 17 to 23 degrees from SLC to Hurricane. Weather calls for a toasty 55 tomorrow for the remainder of my ride to Vegas. See you Saturday Mr. H. Wheeler.

Less $$ for a room in Hurricane. I had a decent room at Econo Lodge for $36.00 I've never got that price in Mesquite.

But...buffets are scarce in Hurricane.

The ride went GREAT!
We modified it on the run to get over the mountain and back too Vegas before the rain turned to snow.
Had 16 2 wheelers and 6 Spyders along this year.
