I'm not out just can't commit yet. That would be a big swing for haul vehicle fuel expense. $450 for just you or $225 and then we split two ways. 75% reduction.

been meaning to ask you, what size gas tank are you buying?

I'm not sure yet. I need to get out on the 300 and put some real miles on it.

Give me a shout when you know for sure. I'll either ride out with you or camp in the truck.

Re: Barstow to Vegas 2017 Planning Thread

Attention on the Hotels

I just learned that the AMA D37 crowd has moved to the Embassy Suites hotel. It's about 4 blocks away from the Holiday Inn. I'm not sure I'm changing my reservations from the Holiday Inn since they are walking distance apart, but if you haven't made reservations yet and want to hang out with the other riders the night before the ride, consider the Embassy Suites.

Contact Keith or one of the other D37 reps on the contacts page. I have heard second hand of people getting their money back, but can't confirm their refund policy.

There is really no rush to sign up for the ride as a number of slots will be open later in the year. I probably won't sign up until the count get close to 400.

So did you get your correct number? I see that 58 has now been reserved.

Re: Barstow to Vegas 2017 Planning Thread

I registered as the #57th rider, no idea if that will translate into a number with 57 in it or not...

Well then, I think you are all good to receive registration tag #57.

Re: Barstow to Vegas 2017 Planning Thread

By the time of the ride I will be 58 years old, does that count for anything useful?

Donny are you going?

Re: Barstow to Vegas 2017 Planning Thread

Yes, barring the unforeseen, I am planning to go for sure. Hoping i can pay close enough attn to the registration count to snag #87. If so I will be officially registered. If I miss my getting my favorite number, then I probably won't register until last minute. Just in case something gets in the way of my going.

Well, the Texana race is a GO. It should be good LAB2V prep reminding me how open space feels. I'm looking forward to it after all my tree dodging and ledge hoping

Good luck on the race. I'll be interested to hear how the 300 does.

Re: Barstow to Vegas 2017 Planning Thread

Interested in riding LAB2V, but not interested in all the logistics? Coyote Trail Adventures just posted up on the D37 forum with an interesting LAB2V rental offer. Contact them for more information. Show up in Palmdale, get on a bike, get off in Vegas.

Thanks for that. Waiting to hear back. As much as I'd like to do it with my own bike, that's a lot of driving ...
