Las Vegas Rabbit Hole: How far does it go down?

Thought I would share a Las Vegas day trip. We were just goofing around down there. The legendary Charlie Boorman even commented on it. How cool is that?

I can't tell you. You have to come riding with me to see it (and that’s an open invitation). However, I will tell you that we were riding completely under the Las Vegas Strip.

CRF70 yes. And I did install some stators and lights but they are not “exactly” street legal. But I have been pulled over a couple of times and the police have let me go (but only because one of the guys in the video his brother is a cop).

Nope. I think that if you are all the way down there, you really don't want to see other people so they don't bother me and I don't bother them. There are not a whole lot of people down there anyway. Mostly I run across kids that are spray painting the place. Plus note right around the 8:45 mark of the video you can see something tucked into the small of my back... just in case.

Just got back from Vegas 2 weeks ago, going back in 3 weeks, always wanted to go exploring down there but have never had the chance. Is that video real recent? The insane flooding a few weeks ago I imagine cleaned up a lot of those of the trash (and bums )

That's cool. I live in Vegas and would like to join you sometime. I've been looking for an excuse to get a CRF70.

Rock on. Makes me want to load up the Baja 50 (grandsons leftover) and drive out to Vegas.
