New Years Death Valley ride 2019

It's a new year so of course it's also time for the New Years Death Valley ride.
Mike aka Vegashotwheeler sets it up every year and it's always a blast!

I leave on Thursday, and stay overnight in Hurricane. Temps for the ride are 17 to around 25 degrees.  Brrrr.

Getting gas in Beaver.

The next day I wander towards Vegas, stopping in Kayenta, Utah.
The Kayenta city center is a gathering place for local artists, with numerous shops for art lovers.

If you look closely there is a tiny gold wire in that bottle. There is a solar collector on the cap and the wire glows up in the dark. Very cool!

Then Saturday (Jan 5) it's time for the NYDV ride.
There were 26 machines attending. including 6 Spyders. 

Some of the art at the place we had lunch, at the Longstreet Inn.

(Thanks Adrian for the pic)

Its getting wet...

I think we did about 300 miles and rode through a bit of rain. Mike cut the ride a little short so we could get over the pass and back to Vegas before the rain turned to snow.

As always the ride was a Ton O Fun!

I agree with Richard on the chalk drawing.

Also glad you made it back over the pass before the snow hit. Looks like good times.
