Las Vegas has loads of motorcycle rentals so you could fly in, rent a scoot and travel to Beatty!

It's a JPG; you'd have to turn that into an image in order to post it.

We've done a variation of that ride on Sunday's ride. The 266/168 stretch is rather fun. ;D

From the JPG that @UNCLEJOHN posted:

Any midsize to larger machine that loves to dance in the corners and is comfortable on the bee lines is great. Fuel range is an important consideration, so know your motorcycle's capability.
Funny, until you've been there, done that and go "man, it *is* a long way to civilization!"

Any other roads left to visit?

Lower Wildrose Road: Closed between the Wildrose Campground and Panamint Valley Road. Access to Wildrose Campground, Wildrose Peak and Telescope Peak trails is possible via Emigrant Canyon Road from CA 190.

Upper Wildrose Road: Closed from Charcoal Kilns to Mahogany Flat due to snow.

Scotty's Castle Road: Open from CA-190 to Ubehebe Crater Road. Closed into Grapevine Canyon (Bonnie Claire Road) due to flood damage. No access to Scotty's Castle or NV-267.

Racetrack Road, Ubehebe Crater, and Mesquite Spring Campground are not affected by this closure.

Artist's Drive: Will be closed from January 9, 2017 through March 16, 2017 for much needed flood repairs.

Sure:

CA190 in the park is great...

There's also Daylight Pass Road, Beatty Rd, Badwater Rd., Jubilee Pass Rd. and Dante's View Rd.

I will most likely be on Goldwing so NO off road.LOL.
My son and I will be staying in Beatty either the Motel 6 or at the Stagecoach. Another Goldwing friend may be going as well.

Please I am NOT trying to poach members from the President's Day weekend; but if you can't make that one feel free to PM me if you want to join us.
Curious as to how your stay at Beatty and ride into DV went.

I've got the pontoons next to the bike just waiting to install them. For me to get there it may be the snow that I have to worry about. One year I had to cancel my reservations because Tehachapi Pass was shut down due to ice/snow.

[SIZE="7"]SNOW YOU WANT SNOW [/SIZE]I have just spent the last two days plowing out my yard and all of the neighbors. I am also concerned about the snow keeping me from attending.
Hope we get some warm weather and at least melt off the roads some. That trailering idea is looking better and better.

I always thought of you as a tough guy and now you're whining just like that Bobby C fella.
