Thumb Vegas to "Valley of Fire" on the Hogs with a bit of DS riding to boot.

Headed out to Vegas from So, Cal to hang out and visit my good friend Jason. Sunday was our day to hit Valley of Fire. Jason, Rene, & I got a late start at 9:30am, and headed to meet up with the other cats. I met Rob, Phil, and Ben for the first time at Rob’s house. Ben was going to lead us to VOF, but first we stopped to top off the tanks & got some more supplies from the store.
The weather was a bit on the chilly side, but fortunately I was layered for it.
This was at Robs house. Jays heritage, Jays bobbed out sporty (that Rene rode), and my XL1200N.

Closeup of my Nightster that looks nothing like a nightster any more.

Damn, I look kind of crazy..

Our pit stop for some cold ones.

At the pay booth about to enter VOF.

Officially at...

This is where we set up camp for the afternoon.



Man I like this bike!

Nice rock formations.

Yess, I also like my bike.. She is a photo whore.

Mr Ranger in the back collecting our $8 more for use of the camp site. LOL.

Looks like a river flowed thru here at some point.

Rene looking for Cell service.

Time for JD.

That sporty is looking sweet too.

Vof


We even ran into a mountain goat.




It lead us to something peqular.

We ran out of food pretty quick on the BBQ, and my appetite was still unatisfied. Time to live off the land..

I couldn't pull it out of the cave. That mountain lion wanted it more then me.

Heres a couple of departing group pics.


Rene, Jason, Me, Phill.

Rob 2, Rob 1, Rene, Jason.


Can anyone tell me what sliced the rock like that?



This was kind of cool to see!





This was the last of the day light, we ended up making it home at dark.


Till next time!

Laugh

I flew to Vegas back in 2003 and did the same. I rented a sportster at the LV Harley Davidson for 24 hrs and rode out to the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Valley of Fire. Then stopped at the LV motor speedway and watched race practice.

It was the end of January, but the temps were near record highs, like 70 degrees that week, so I was fortunate. Cold mornings though.

Thanks guys.
We want to plan a ride back there, but next time we are going to take tents so we can stay overnight. We need to brush up on bike camping.
