We welcome you on the LA to Vegas motorcycle tour. This tour provides
the opportunity to explore the California Mojave Desert from its
highest peeks to the lowest point of the America’s on a dual sport
bike. Off road fun is guaranteed along curvy jeep roads and dual sport trails. The „Wild West“
with its awe-inspiring landscape is calling to you.
This letter will provide some basic information about your trip and

easier to use for water)
