I just moved to Las Vegas last month and am looking for a few good riding buddies. I live on the SW corner off 160.
I love to ride and have been checking out how far everything is.
(these are all one way calculations from my house)
Grand Canyon Village - 4.5 hours 280 miles
Flagstaff- 4 hours 260 miles
Sedona- 4.5 hours 280 miles
Zion National Park- 3 hours 180 miles
Cedar Breaks National Monument- 3.5 hours 210 miles
Lake Havasu- 2.5 hours 160 miles
Anyone else out there want to go on 400+ mile round trips in one day with me? lol! Of course they all won't be, my body would be screaming from abuse, but every now and then I have to get out and ride all day long. This list is only just beginning and I may not venture out on all these. I don't know much about cool places in NV yet, except the super duper far away Lake Tahoe! I know of some places like Red Rock and Mt Charleston that are pretty close as well but haven't been yet.
NOTE: I have been getting over a lot of injuries from 2.5 previous accidents in 07-08, so I'm not as hardy as I used to be but I'm still young enough to keep going ( only 28 )! I also have a slight fear of tight curves that I have been slowly but surely getting over from those accidents as well, sportbikes were awesome but not my cup of tea apparently. I've come a long way since 2008 but I still have a long way to go, I am no quitter!! So if you are willing to be a part of my "recovery team", that would be awesome! I need all the support I can get!
