When you stop doing things for fun you might as well be dead.

Survived most of the trip with the good bikes running. Time to go bigger!

All I can say is WOW!!!  My first impression is untamed territory.....What a difference from the dunes here.  I am not used to NOT seeing thousands of people like at silver lake.   That was an awesome video and i like the videos alot better when there is no music playing just like this one!!!  Looking forward to seeing you again at silver lake.....

Thanks man! Yes, its a lot of virgin sand but not a lot of WOT because of all the unknown dropoffs and unpredictable soft sand. I wanted to add, the reason I locked up was a clogged gas tank vent....its dustier sand and after days of riding I think it filled up and I ran my bowl out of fuel. I had 75-100 hard sand dune hours on that top end though, time for a new one anyway.

We have had replaced dozens of pistons in engines because of the little billet piston shaped check valves that guys put on the  end of their fuel tank vent lines.  The spring in the check valve is too strong and does not allow the fuel tank to vent properly.

Carburetor tuning is much more critical when running the big dunes than bikes tuned for smaller dunes and woods bikes where the periods of wide open throttle are less.

I actually run more wide open throttle at Silver Lake then I do glamis. Other than the sand highways most of the time we are grunting around at glamis. Yes the big bowls and walls we run wot but not nearly as long as what I do at SL. Marcs bike lasted 4 big days at glamis. I truly believe it was a gas tank vent problem.

Arlan says stay away from them. I'm a idiot and still run one, I can't stand the hose and trying to find a place for it. Also when removing the gas cap having to deal with it. Maybe I'll learn my lesson some day.
