Death Valley National Park Ride

Living in Nevada, or the Quad-State area (California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona) a bucket list trip item is Death Valley. In the past I had gone part way to Shoshone, California to eat at “The Famous Crowbar Café and Saloon.” It is an old time establishment that has good comfort food.

Dianne Park – MSTA PR Director – Ninja 1000 ABS

I chose my Ninja 1000 ABS primarily because it is one of the few sport touring bikes that has the capability of being lowered enough so that I can reach the ground! It was first lowered as much as possible, but we have raised it UP a couple of times, getting much closer to original manufacturers specs! It feels so light weight and it is um … quick! Just put the first 1000 miles on, and I LOVE it!!! And it has ABS and traction control! So far it seems like a wonderful solution for “short” riders!
