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 team heads to the Death Valley ghost town of Ballarat, a mining supply town founded in 1896. In its heyday - from 1897 to 1905 - Ballarat had 400 to 500 residents. It hosted seven saloons, three hotels, a Wells Fargo station, post office (that opened in 1897), a school, jail and morgue, but no churches. Ballarat was a place for miners and prospectors in the area to resupply and relax. Today, there is only one resident in Ballarat, George Novak, and very few standing structures.

Moto Americana: Deserts is an exclusive web series available on Touratech-USA's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/TouratechUSA
