Smile Las vegas riders!!!!

Hi everyone!
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!


Current:2011-? 2004 Honda Shadow VLX 600, ~6000mi and counting!
2007-2011 CLEOPATRA 2007 Kawasaki Ninja, ~25,000mi (all weekend miles 18,000mi done in 07-08 )
2007-2007 2007 Ducati SS800, 60 beautiful miles

So the short way to get to Tahoe... is part of it really bad/dirt roads?? I've been hearing awful things about it.

There are different ways to get up there. You can pick easy or difficult. But, no need to hit any dirt.

I rode to Las Vegas in March. it's a 550mile ride each way from where I live, but it was a fun ride. I hit Tahoe a LOT! Actually I've put almost 8,000 miles on since Feb. Come to think about it, my poor little 750 will be dead in no time.

New rider in Vegas looking for a good or better mechanic.
Too old to bend over and have no garage to work on my bike. I will be looking for someone to paint my tank after the first of the year also, it came with an owie. That is 1/2014, sometimes it is hard to tell here. I just got my license and don't ride much, hoping to put in more miles once we have gotten over our imitation of back east weather.
