Death Valley Ride 11/14 Weekend

I'm a new VStrom rider out of LA. A few of us are headed out of Los Angeles early Saturday morning and heading to Death Valley with an overnight stay in Beatty, NV. All type bikes are welcome as we have some cruisers and a couple of Goldwings. Don't know who is showing up yet but all are welcomed to join us. We are riders and 2 of us just did a 3 day 1000 mile round trip up to Carson City...

Enjoy the ride. As you probably know it is a GREAT trip! I took a full day there in late September as part of a 12 day tour. Stayed overnight in Lone Pine, early start to catch the sunrise, and meandered around before overnighting in Las Vegas. There were some great side trails along the canyon walls to the west of the valley, coming from Lone Pine, that were perfect Strom territory! Wish I could have spent more time there...
