  1. Hoping you enjoy our day together here in Vegas! Love ya.
  2. I just got home from a vacation in Las Vegas. We had a good time, although our hotel wasnt that great. Matter of fact it was pretty bad. We stayed at Ballys, and the rooms/hotel were in need of remodeling BADLY. So anyway, it got me to thinking, whats the best place to stay? Lets hear what you guys think and why!
  3. To my husband I wish him a Happy Birthday. Thanks for Vegas.
  4. OK, I was going about the task of changing the clutch slave. Problem I am facing is taking the crankcase cover off. It looks like a bunch of gears are going to fall out with it, along with the case itself being very stubborn. Anyone in the Vegas area familiar with taking these covers off without destroying everything?
  5. Nina & I are going to Vegas in Feb next year (8th-11th) I've read a few old threads here about some of the things to do, see, eat at, etc and have cruised Google for attractions etc. Looking for input from anyone on neat things to check out / do while there that may be somewhat "unadvertised" ... or for that matter, anything you might want to suggest. Also looking for advise on what not to do/watch out for ... such as "small brown people shoving business card in my face for other types of slot machines" (a quote from Redneck's post in 2009)
  6. I would like to find some stock exhaust pipes for a 2nd Gen in the Vegas area.
  7. If the salvage price is reasonable, I may want to buy my VR back from the insurance co. The key is finding someone who could take possession of it in Las Vegas, then maybe between several members could help ferry it back to Buckley WA where it could serve as a parts VR for my 89 VR. Please let me know if you can help or know of someone.
  8. There is a chance that I could be riding to the Las Vegas Area around 19 June to 2nd of July. I would like to ride to the Grand Canyon area and into maybe a bit south, kind of want to experience the Arizona landscape. Question 1) How do you ride in the heat, yet still have adiquate protective riding gear. My riding gear consist of Tour Master Transition 2 Jacket with the matchinig Tour Master Venture Pants. Obviously I'll remove the thermal and waterproof lining and have all the jacket and pants air vents open. I also have the Clearview shield with the air vent. Will being lots of bottled water. Question 2) Leaving Las Vegas I would like to ride thru Death Valley going towards Sauramento. But leaving Las Vegas means that I would be going into Death Valley late morning. My 91 MKII gets the normal 40 mpg +or - 2 mpg depending on how I twist the throttle. Being that it looks pretty straight and flat I'm thinking that I should be getting the plus 1 or 2 mpg at about 65 mph. Where are the gas stops? Would I really need to bring an extra gallon of gas? Most of my life I've been able to handle heat better than the average, and not normally a complainier of uncomfortable environments. Except I do complain of high humidity. I just want to ride safe and would appreciate your heat riding experience advise. Also if there are any members that would like to take me on some local rides, I'd be open to that.
  9. Any stops worth while on Route 66 from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon?
  10. Going to Vegas late June 2012 for 12 full days. Besides Gambleing and the Shows I plan to so some sites. Yosemite Nat Park USAF Thunderbird Area 51 Grand Canyon Hoover Dam Death Valley Anyone recommend anything else. Bike trip maybe back on agian rather than flying.
  11. Has anyone rode the route from Seattle WA to Las Vegas NV. Via (Seattle, Yakima, Kennewick, Bosie, Twin Falls, Las Vegas). Might be taking a ride around the June / July time frame. Whats the gas station situation like between Twin Falls Idaho to Las Vegas NV. I'd love to try that 1000 Butt ride thing, but probably won't for I'd probably fall asleep riding. My wife said she won't ride that far looking directly into the back of my helmet or constantly turning from side to side. She'll go by air. That be fine with me for I can make better time. Less potty brakes and rest stops.
  12. If anyone is interested, I just got around to placing our 2011 trip photos into one link on my website. We travelled a from Central KY along a northerly route to coasts of Oregon and Northern CA. We went south to Monterey an then east to Yosemite. From there we dropped down to Las Vegas and returned across I40. The photos are posted at: http://www.traynorphoto.com/wc2011 The SPOT track can be viewed at: http://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=2fd74df6c9a6b12d4 The two wives along on the trip flew into Portland, OR and back out of Las Vegas. Dennis
  13. Haven't' seen her smile like that since........................since ah well ah since she met me:rotf::rotf:
  14. Just wondering if any members are heading for Street Vibrations in Reno next week or to Las Vegas for Bike Fest the week after? Unfortunately, I gotta fly to both, but in you're going let me know would like to meet some fellow VR.org members.
  15. We're going to stop in Las Vegas for one night on our way back from the west coast this summer. We want to take in a show that night and are not sure what to see. We are thinking about Celine Dion or Terry Fator. If you could only see one show what would it be? Dennis
  16. Because I am the Chairman for the Motorcycle event and a big fan of VENTURERIDER you all get first hand knowledge of what’s going on and before this event hits the Nation wide Media blitz on May 15th and the hotel prices go up then get scarce. So if you’re going to make it to Las Vegas for this event book early. Some of the entertainment for this event are Carrie Underwood and Kid Rock are slated to perform. Just too mention a couple. The party after the ride will be big Ladies and Gentlemen. As Mentioned before September 11, 2011 marks the 10th year anniversary of the tragic events that fell upon our nation. To honor all that have been affected, I am proud to announce a spectacular memorial, "A Decade of Remembrance September 11, 2001-2011. A three day event that will link east coast to west coast via multiple media. This is expected to be one of the largest events to ever occur in Las Vegas. Here are some of the events that are going to take place over the 3 day event. 9-9-11 opening ceremonies with car show in the historic down town Las Vegas. 9-10-11 Motorcycle run down the Las Vegas strip to Russell then to highway 15 back to Las Vegas Motor speedway for a really big party. A 9.11k race and 1 mile fun walk. There is also a 91.1 k bicycle ride and Horses for Heroes Family day. On the 11th of September Heroes Processional then a Gala event on the evening of 9-11-2011 and not to mention all of the memorabilia that is being made such as coins, cups, t-shirts. pins just to mention a few. So I hope you will attend at least the west coasters the east coasters can hit NEW YORK....................Ron http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/184917_168905709823185_159022570811499_341940_3131757_n.jpg
  17. Las Vegas will be the site of one of the largest remembrances for the events of 9/11. 10 years ago our country was attacked. We came together as a country during those times and have slowly drifted apart since. Please click the link to this page and click like. It will continue to provide you with updates as the events are announced. Lets come back together as a country and remember. Please share this with all your friends. This is going to be a great event for a great cause. If you are looking for a great place to vacation HERE IT IS. VEGAS baby. This will be one heck of an event for Bikers. The bike run will be down the strip and to the Las Vegas motor speedway for a great party on 9-10-11 that’s on Sat. There is a parade down the strip on Sunday the 11th. A car show and a horse show. If you have always wanted to be part of something this is your chance. You need to register for the run to get all the goodies. This will have a New York / Las Vegas simulcast. THIS IS HUGE..................Ron http://www.facebook.com/pages/911-A-Decade-of-Remembrance/159022570811499?sk=wall&filter=2 https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fueled-by-the-Fallen-Memorial-Race-Car-Team/9857964895?ref=ts http://www.fueledbythefallen.org/
  18. :wow:LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police are looking for an armed casino bandit who escaped on a motorcycle with perhaps $2 million worth of gambling chips from the posh Bellagio hotel-casino. Police Lt. Clinton Nichols told The Associated Press the robbery happened quickly. He says the bandit wore a full-face motorcycle helmet as he displayed a gun in a casino pit area then demanded chips and sped away on Flamingo Road on a black sport-style motorcycle. Detectives are reviewing video and camera images of the robbery that occurred just before 4 a.m. Tuesday at the Las Vegas Strip resort. No shots were fired and no one was injured. My question now would be - how the heck do you get ride of those chips - the person must have a lot of friends - LOL.
  20. I just visited their website to find the next auction. This weekend.... While on the home page I started looking at some of the cars coming up for auction in Vegas. The page showed about 4 and a half cars. Then I dragged to the left and... what a cool pic display!! You need to give it a try. http://www.barrett-jackson.com/ Scroll down to the Las Vegas logo and click and drag. It hard to discribe, and I've never seen anything like it... Hats off to the web designer...
  21. My wife and I are flying to Vegas for a week august 23 to the 29th(i think). I am more of a sightseer than a gambler or relaxer, so If anyone can toss up some hot tips or advice that would be great. Since we are Flying down I was thinking of looking into renting a motorcycle for a day or two, and go on one of them cycle tours, so any hand me down knowledge or tips in this area would be great too.
  22. The time is almost here. I have the whole month of July off and taking my new tent trailer and off I go to Las Vegas. My route down is planned but of course open to different sights as the days progress. My route home I will be winging it thru Texas to the ocean then to New Orleans. From there I have no idea yet. Stay safe everyone and I hope to keep checking in.
  23. May 15th and hoping to arrive May 18th, I am going for my first Long Distance Solo ride from Houston to Vegas. I am playing in a big pool tournament. I'm going I10 to Fort Stockton, then taking 285 North towards Roswell, New Mexico. Going North from Rosewell to Albuquerque, NM. Then taking Hwy 40 on in to Las Vegas. If anyone has any information that that they think I need to take with me or any ideas about my trip, please let me know. I am pulling a trailer as I will be camping a long the way so I have camping supplies, tools & a bit of gas. I could use all the advise I could get. Thanks, Hal PS have 15 days off and I will be doing some site seeing on the way home to houston. (ie; Grand Canyon, 4 corners, and where ever else) :dancefool:
  24. OK, so we all know that if Moma ain't happy, no one is. With that in mind' The better half and I are going to be taking a trip to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas in May. (22-29) The plan is for me to drive out from Ohio, meet her at the airport, (She is giving me some free time), then spend a week camping the Canyon, drive back to Vegas, put her on a plane and then for me to beat-feet back to Ohio. Problem, The need for "STUFF", exceeds my ability to carry on the bike. I know I could find a trailer here in OHio and lug it out there, but what I'd really like to do is drive free from the thing out, rent one while I'm there and then drive free back. Any Idea's about where to find one to rent would be appricated.
  25. Fwd: This video is really interesting, you can understand what is going on even if you don't understand German. There are three major construction equipment shows in the world: 1) CONEXPO in Las Vegas 2) BAUMA in Munich and 3) Intermat in Paris (There may be a new name for this one now, but it is still held in Paris). They alternate every third year in each city. This year the show is in Munich. The Europeans are famous for putting on crowd-pleasing stunts such as this one. Generally they are a little more subdued in Las Vegas, probably because of higher risk of lawsuits. The stunts are well designed to be safe, but there is always the possibility that a hydraulic component could break, or something unforeseen could happen., which could result in a terrible accident. So you think you can drive a piece of heavy equipment. You Engineers watch it all the way. This is from an Austrian TV " reality " show called " Wetten Dass "(I'll bet you that . . . ) looks like this was done in front of the Vienna City Hall. PL What a commercial for this company!! Wonder how he got down!! This guy is certified! [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RobaJKGMMiE]YouTube- Liebherr[/ame]
