On Sat, we ride from Tonopah to Stovepipe Wells, Death Valley, which is only 140 miles. We'll stay there, at Stovepipe Wells Village -- by the pool -- for the rest of the day. Then on Monday, we ride through Trona, Randsburg and Mojave back to LA. The ride is through really interesting country and over interesting roads, but it will be warm. This will be my first longish ride on the new K12GT so I will know more about the bike, the seat, windscreen, Nav III and the Olympia Airglide 2 pants and jacket -- by the time I get back! I updated the Nav III software from the Garmin site and programed a route for the trip and it will be interesting to see how that unit works.
