Great writeup. I have some nearly identical pictures from Red Rock Canyon. Sadly, my tour was't on a bike but hurried along on a tour bus. I won't do that again. That sounds reasonable for the rental, did it include insurance? I'll definately hit them up next time we head out that way as I don't gamble much so the strip has lost some of it's lustre in the three trips I've made out there. Valley of Fire is definately on my list.
