    Loading the tracks to the GPS is a mystery to me. I use a Garmin Zumo 350 hopefully all will be well. Maybe I should bring a map and compass just in case. 😂 I’ll be riding the Duc from Vegas to Palmdale. Hopefully the TKC80’s will not wear too badly; used Heidenau K60 scouts on my Alaska trip and was very happy with them. But don’t believe they would do well in the sand.

    Been in Vegas 17 years after relocating from Alaska. Been riding for 50 years or so; mainly on road with some motocross racing mixed in when I was a kid. Picked up a Ducati Multistrada 950 and road from Vegas to Alaska, Top of the World Highway to Dawson City in the Yukon, up the Dempster a bit and back home to Vegas June of 2018. Had a blast out running all the bear! Been dreaming about the LAB2V ride ever since I was a kid reading about the "Barstow to Vegas Race" in Cycle Magazine! Decided to throw caution and good sense to the wind and signed up for the 2019 running using my Duc. Now I'm scrambling to get geared up and prepared. Hopefully I'll find some folks I can tag along with during the ride as I've never used a roll chart and my GPS is limited to on road routing. Really looking forward to the ADV bike routing this year. LOL
