Death Valley Days this year?

I don't see any mention of Death Valley Days for 2012. Is it hidden or no longer interesting? Seems like this is a great year for it.

Anyone in the know speak up. If not this year, we should explore next year.

Re: Death Valley Days this year?

This is over on the AZBeemers site if you are interested.

AZ Beemers Death Valley Daze and FODS V dates are now firmly set for March 15th-18th of 2012.

As much as I would like to make this start on one side of the park and end on the other I just don't think it's practical. Getting the trucks/trailers to the finish point would require too many non-riders to jockey vehicles while we play. So DVD Headquarters is Longstreet Inn & Casino

Longstreet Inn and Casino will be the primary base of operations for this moto assault on the desert. 1-775-372-1777 e-Mail: [email protected]

Don Stanley (BeemerDonS) had to play some poker with Marybelle and Monica to get us a reduced rate at the Longstreet Casino. This rate only applies to three nights occupancy of March 15-17, 2012. If only two nights are booked it will be $10 higher per each of the categories below!

$39.95 for a Standard Room with two queen beds on the Highway side of the property; still very quiet for restful sleeping.

$49.95 for a Standard Room on the pond/park side of the property; also with two beds, but away from the main highway!

$59.95 for a Suite; these are really nice and swank; on the pond/park side with a King Extra Bed, fireplace and nice patio.

When FJR Forum Members book they must mention FODS and either throw out the name of Don Stanley, BeemerDonS or 'UberKul' Brad.

When AZ Beemers Members book, they must mention Death Valley Daze 2012 and throw out the name Don Stanley or BeemerDonS.

I'll work up a couple of off road day rides for Friday and Saturday in the 150-200 mile range, but they should all be big bike friendly with a gas stop shoved in there somewhere. VStroms, BMW GS's, KTM's etc. should be fine on all these roads, with some reduced tire pressure.

These will be unsupported rides so bring food, fuel and tools to take care of yourself for a whole day out riding in varied weather conditions. There is little to no cell service in this park and any problems we have will be self rescue unless life threatening. I'm still a rookie Death Valley rider but feel free to PM me if you have any questions or concerns. Please contact Don Stanley at [email protected] or 1-480-440-4666 Or send me AZB Forum Private Message.

If you don't have a dual sport bike feel free to come anyway. The weather should be good but us dirty boys will have all the fun stories and mock the slaves to pavement mercilessly!

PLEASE NOTE: I'm looking for a Road Ride Captain or two to lead the street bikes. Son Seth, Miss Donna and I will be going up to the Longstreet Inn aboard our Jeep Liberty Diesel SUV with our BMW GS on its motorcycle trailer. So, I'm hoping for a volunteer M/C Ride Captain.
