Touratech-USA Presents Moto Americana: Deserts

Attached above is another installment in “Moto Americana: Deserts,” a web series created by Curbsyde Productions.

The series follows the Curbsyde Production crew and other adventure riders as they take a 12-day, 1200-mile journey across four of California’s famed deserts – Death Valley, Mojave, Joshua Tree and Anza-Borrego.

In this installment, the crew – consisting of documentary filmmakers Joe Lloyd, Flora Lloyd, and Andre Corpuz, and experienced adventure riders Bob Berglund, Rob Watt and Whitney Koeberle – departs Stovepipe Wells and decides to spend some time exploring the “tourist loops” of Death Valley.

Touratech-USA says: “Riding through Furnace Creek, which sits well below sea level, the team travels to Devil’s Golf Course, a large salt pan on the floor of Death Valley covered in halite salt crystal formations, and then on to the Artist Palette before heading south towards Mojave. Mojave.”
