Annual New Years ride Sat. Dec. 30th 2017

Its that time of year again to start thinking about coming out to Vegas and riding New Years when the weather is crap back home.
Plan your rooms, flights bike rentals or path to trailer in.
I'll post ride meet location, route and meet time later as I'm still deciding the particulars.
Most years the weather has been very friendly to getting out and enjoying Death Valley.
I have missed the last 2 years due to health and planning to not talk people into going and go back home after departure

Mikey, I'm getting an alert about your links. It wants me to do something dangerous. Sounds exciting but I thought you should know...the Feds are on to you.

May reverse the route so you could meet us on the 95 junction out of Pahrump or Longstreet Casino for breakfast if I do that route.
Looks like Adrian is in also from up North.
Threw a wider invite this year and though Facebook and may get a few more guys from up your way.

Either way is fine with me, I can still easily meet you at the gas station or if you turn at the Tecopa road I could meet you there. Doesn't matter to me as long as I don't miss the riding!

With a reversed route I may stop at Mom's for dinner before coming back over the mountain to Vegas.

I finally was able to get a condo in Vegas so don't change anything on my behalf, but a stop at Mom's is definitely something we should consider...

Group size is the only reason I dont do Mom's usually for this ride.
They are great but tend to be busy for a larger group and not knowing what size for your turn out I dont add it in.
Crowbar has always just been convenient and can handle a larger group most of the time.
Going to Pre Run the ride Saturday the 25th over Thanksgiving weekend and see what time for leaving Vegas and judge the Longstreet Hotel/Casino for the breakfast stop in the reversed loop.
The group usually kind of breaks up around Furnace Creek/Bad Water as some people want to turn and burn so we may have a small enough group Mom's would work fine.
Guess we can always wait it out for dinner time if still a decent sized group.
I could have a go at some Chicken Fried Steak!
Havent had any since before my Gastric Sleeve.
Anyone else looking at coming too Vegas????????

"I could have a go at some Chicken Fried Steak!"

I found that Campbell's Soup company makes a Country Sausage gravy. Comes in a can that is 15% more at the 99 Cents only store.
Wife likes cube steaks. Dredge the steak in a milk and egg mix, then into seasoned flour and back to the egg/ milk mix and fry in a little oil.
A friend gave me a bottle of Tabasco flavored olive oil. USe at your own discretion.
Flood that sucker with the sausage gravy for the yum sensation at dinner or brekky.

As some would say, MMM, MMM Good!
