Touratech-USA Exclusive Web Series - Moto Americana: Deserts

Motorcyclists and documentary filmmakers Joe Lloyd, Flora Lloyd, and Andre Corpuz venture out to explore the unpaved roads of the United States, accompanied by a team of adventure riders including, Bob Berglund, Rob Watt and Whitney Koeberle.

In this episode of 'Moto Americana: Deserts' the Curbsyde team heads to the second ghost town of their journey, Rhyolite, set against the Bullfrog Hills, about 120 miles northwest of Las Vegas, NV.

The town began in early 1905 as one of several mining camps that sprang up after a prospecting discovery in the surrounding hills. During an ensuing gold rush, thousands of gold-seekers, developers, miners, and service providers flocked to the Bullfrog Mining District. Many settled in Rhyolite, which lay in a sheltered desert basin near the region's biggest producer, the Montgomery Shoshone Mine.

Rhyloite is now a reminder of our pioneering past and enguinituy as well as a great place to ride to!
