BARSTOW TO VEGAS POSTER MAP
I have a limited number of these stored perfectly in my office. When these are gone, they're gone, and so is a piece of history with them. The map shows the 1972 race course, the 1974 race course and two other alternate routes that use mostly existing fire roads.
On the legend of the map, The Phantom Duck Of The Desert wrote the following:
“This map was designed for study use by students of motor racing history and is not intended for use as an actual trail guide. Although it is incredibly accurate, the world is only approximate. If you become lost, make local inquiries before you go too far and are never seen again. Any connection between this document and any event, real or imagined, that may take place Thanksgiving weekend, 1980, is purely coincidental.”
It was written like this to keep the Bureau of Land Management from busting all those “illegal” trail riders on the Protest Ride. The Maps were handed out to many of the protest riders and they're highly prized memorabilia of those rides.
The map is filled with great cartoons and truly hilarious satire. Printed on heavy cardboard stock, it's 11” by 17”. This is a must have for the dirt biker who has been around and a valuable look at the past for the younger riders. Artist Winston Beaumont spent weeks putting this piece of art together.
The price for the B to V map is $10 plus $5 for Priority rush mail.
