Las Vegas question

Hi y'all!

I'm goin' to Vegas with my wife in a couple of weeks.

I wanto rent a Hog while I'm there.:banghead:

(We did it in Aruba, and it was a lot of fun).

So, any of youse have suggestions of where to go?

We'll obviously cruise up and down the "strip" once,

but are there other cool places to explore on a bike?

Is the Hoover Dam far from Vegas?

I think the rentals are either 9-5 or 24hrs straight.

I appreciate any feedback. :banghead:

45 minutes to the damn

also red rocky canyon is a good ride

161 to Good Springs Rd out to Sandy Valley

Thanks fells :banghead:

I will look into those destinations.

Like Brian said, Red Rock Canyon is nice. I'd also go check out the Valley of Fire...about 20-30 minutes east of Las Vegas. The Valley of Fire loop also takes you out by the lake.

I live here in Vegas and the weather is Perfect for riding right now. Just beautiful.

Valley of Fire loop would be cool. There's a lot of construction around the dam and big traffic jams so I wouldn't ride there. Ditto for the strip. It's gridlock almost 24/7. I saw several rear enders because people are too busy gawking and not watching where they're going. Also drivers getting pissed for having to wait for herds of pedestrians crossing against the light, then bombing through the intersection. Too risky on a bike, IMO.

are you talking about daytime or nightime?

Red Rock is beautiful, you have to go on a ride out that way...its actually close enough to my house I can ride over there on my dirtbike, excelent trails...even better roads. You can rent Harley's from a bunch of places...most are conventiantly located on Las Vegas Boulevard.

They're not shown on the website, but you can rent Harley's at:

I second (3rd?) Valley of Fire. That place is a nice slow bike ride dream! I recommend you head to and around Lake Mead as well. Another nice riding road with plenty of places to stop and play tourist.

Red Rock [loop] is OK (and closer), but VofF is better.

Depending on how far you're willing to ride and how long you have the bike, ride to Death Valley NP. Now is the time to go. In the summer, it's simply too hot to do/see anything there.

Stay off the strip on the bike (or any bike). There are too many out-of-towners down there just to look around and not watching traffic. I stay away from there like it's the plague! If I have friends/family who want to see the Strip, I'll take my truck and have them sit in the bed. That way I can drive and they can look & take pictures / video all they want.

Awesome info, guys :banghead:

I didn't think there would be so much to see/do.

(I had always thought that outside

of Vegas strip was strictly barren desert)

Thanks again for the suggestions, guys!

Well, back from Vegas.

Made it to Red Rock, but didn't have time to do

Valley of Fire/Lake Mead/Hoover Dam.

I'll get to those next time.

Anyway, thanks again for the suggestions!

Here's some shots.
