That is what I am thinking. It seems doable in three days at a intermediate pace and see the sites. I need to look at the tracks in more detail. How long did they take in the movie to cover it?

Great preview and Thanks. Being from Texas we have some great riding areas but Nothing like Cali. I'd love to explore and enjoy some of the trails very soon. Thinking of loading up a trailer with 2/3 bikes and heading out for a month or so.

GPS tracks looks like 8 days!

Looking at the tracks i think Yuma to I40 could be done in a day.  Its a lot of pavement.

Snow could be an issue further north. I would hate to bypass the red lines, unless they are not doable on a big bike. I am up for two 3-day rides. Ride-1 Yuma to Beatty. Ride-2 Benton to Beatty. Ride-1 February 23rd and Ride-2 mid to late April or May. The midway point might need to change since it looks like it goes through Titus Canyon (one-way).

So the wife and I went down to Riverside last night to watch the film.  I’ve reviewed the tracks and aside from the section between Yuma & Blythe (that’s @Jason R‘s territory) I’ve ridden every section of this route at one time or another.  Stringing all these areas together would be great fun. However considering this is billed as a “winter route” I have concerns about potential snow on Hunter Mtn in DV and Wyman/Silver canyons near Bishop. There are alternate go-arounds but those are must see stops IMHO.
