Re: Barstow to Vegas 2017 Possibly Premature Planning Thread

Wow! Your going to have a two wheeled portable fuel depot. Just need to rig up a special docking hose so you can re-fuel bikes on the fly, like they do with the air force fleet. Maybe start Matts while you ride re-fueling service. "So next time you ride, don't roll the dice, better bring Matt along, or pay the price!"

What bike is that on? Acerbis designs do appear to carry the weight higher up than a Safari. Plan your fuel stops right and you can get $25 of free gas at Sandy Valley.

Re: Barstow to Vegas 2017 Possibly Premature Planning Thread

Too much fuel/weight can be an issue also if your susp is not set up for it. Can be a real issue in the desert sand.
