Smile This years trip starts Saturday 12th August

Well, T minus 3 days and we are on our way. We will be going from Toronto to Las Vegas, ElPaso, Panama City then home. Anyone have a recommendation for biker friendly hotels in Vegas? We are going to stop in and see Jeff from this board in Cedar Park TX. Other places we will be in is Lincoln NB, Cheyenne WY, Ola NV, Las Vegas NV, Grand Canyon AZ, ElPaso TX, Lafayette LA, Panama City FL, Robbinsville NC. If anyone has biker friendly motels in these areas please let me know.

Thanks
Garry

Unhappy I guess there is no biker friendly hotels on this trip

Either no-one lives in the places I am going or there are no bikere friendly hotels there.

Cool Welcome to Vegas

Where would you like to stay in Las Vegas??? On the strip? Off the strip?
Tell me what you want to do while you are here and I will help you out.

Remember that it is hotter than hell here in the valley, so as you make your way to Vegas drink tons of water and wear a cooling vest or something wet under your jackets... PM me and I can fill you in.
