For 34 years, District 37 Dual-Sport has hosted the LA to Barstow to Vegas ride, providing participants with a 400 mile-plus dual-sport ride through some of the most scenic countryside in the Southwest. Perhaps this is why the event in known around the world and not just in this corner of the United States.

Every year, videos begin to trickle out from the event a few days after its completion, and this one by Jim Kowalski is the best we’ve found for the 2017 LA-B-to-V ride. However, it should be noted that this video features a different route for the first day of riding (Instead, it covers from Riverside, up through the Cajon Pass to Lucerne, Hesperia, through Johnson Valley and Stoddard Wells to Barstow, according to Kowalski.)

You owe yourself this five-minute dual-sport vacation. If it doesn’t make you want to buy an adventure or dual-sport bike, you better check your pulse.
