Love the photos. Especially the last one. Only in Nevada could you walk out into the middle of highway 93 and take photos in complete safety! Between Vegas and Ely really is "somewhere". That whole stretch of highway tends to blend into one long "somewhere".

Alp, way to go! I didn't see you after that faster run, that is very good.

The DA on Friday morning was super low. Something like 3,800 ft (!!!). I picked a bad morning to jet down and run at my leanest of the week. An hour later ran again and while it was a bit over 80 degrees was still under 4,000 ft DA! Crazy.

Congratulations and thanks for posting all the great photos. A skinny, stripped-down motorsickle just looks soooo right with a thick crust of salt.
