Vegas is a little cooler then I thought it would be! I had an interesting situation with 2 mock show girls I may share about.  :D


There's not much scooter content here in Vegas but did see a few things notable.

I met up with Sam, Colby and Brian. Here's a quick pic and I'll post the rest when I settle in for the evening.

Sam, Colby and Brian met me at the hotel and we were off for breakfast.




After breakfast they offered to run me out to Red Rock Canyon Nat'l Park. Wow! What a grand view we had just outside Las Vegas! I had no idea.... There was a rental scooter so we do have some scooter content..

Sandstone blocks.



A few more pics as we were parting.



We stopped at a great place called Cottonwood Station.




I had my first Montucky Cold Snack - Montana's beer.


At breakfast I had prepared a strange gift for my scooter thugs Virginian style. (The El Polo Loco is an inside joke)


With a pic of each of their bikes on the back.




Colby was very generous and had custom pocket knives made for us. Way cool!

In closing I would like to say thank you to each of these fine fellows. I'm absolutely blown away that someone would hop in a car and drive all the way to Vegas to have a meal with me. Honestly, I don't deserve such kindness and I'm humbled by all the gentlemen. Imu, we missed you and wished you were there. I am blessed beyond belief from many folks here in Battle Scooters. Gentlemen from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Chillis turned me onto a place to go investigate and get away from the debauchery in Vegas. There's a saloon called the Pioneer Saloon that dates back to 1903 that's rich with history.
http://www.pioneersaloon.info/

If you're riding through it's worth a stop by for a look see.

This place is chock full of history but much of it has been demolished/burned down like the old two story hotel. Also bullet holes in the wall in the saloon where somebody was shot during a poker game. This saloon is also where Clark Gable waited out word on Carol Lombard's safety after her plane crashed into the mountain out back. Sadly she passed away...






The bullet holes where a dude got shot and died over a poker game.

Last item of maybe interest to some of you we hit up the Neon Boneyard. Here is where all the old neon signs from Las Vegas' hay day go to rest and it was cool to see these from many years ago. As luck would have it they had a Tim Burton exhibit. If you're a TB fan it would be worth your time to peruse these pics. The bone yard was way cool as well. Read about it here. https://www.neonmuseum.org/

Some of TB's doodles.








That's it for this trip, back to scooters in a few days as I'm waiting on parts.

Life is short, enjoy the ride!

Thanks Eric.  Once  again a great and interesting report and ride along. 

How far was that saloon from Vegas?  Very interesting.

About 35 to 40 minutes driving. There's quite a bit of cool stuff to see out there like old gold mines and the ghost towns that were left behind.
