My wife and I are headed to Vegas this Thursday for our anniversary/graduation present for her....Its our first time in Vegas (or out west for that matter). Friday is my "Fun Day" to do what I want. I was sitting here plotting a route to Death Valley National Park after realizing the Grand Canyon was way too far off to hit on a one day trip from Vegas and looking up motorcycle rentals in Vegas. Now I am inspired to follow your lead and borrow your route. Nice write up and beautiful pictures!! The Valley of Fire looks like a great ride...Thanks!
