Dual sport riding in Truckee California


LA Barstow to Vegas ride

One of my favorite organized motorcycle rides to do each year on Thanksgiving weekend is the famous LA-B-Vegas ride.

AMA district 37 puts on this 500 mile desert ride every year and I highly recommend it for all dual sport riders. It’s hard and very fun.

This is my bike.ktm-1190-r-equiped

well almost, this is the Touratech version of my bike.


The bike coast $16,000 from MPC KTM, it’s amazing.

I took the boxes off my BMW 650 Sertao and put them on this bike. I have the attachments for extra gas, I can carry three of the 3/4 gallon bottles. I use the Primus bottle for oil and the other is water.

The Tank bag is Wolfman good bag, but I really don’t enjoy riding with a tank bag unless I really need the space.

Hippo hands the bast thing for winter riding. Keeps you hands tostie and you can wear summer gloves all year round.
