LA to Vegas (Nov 2010)

 Pete, Michael and I flew into Los Angeles in early Nov 2010. John ( Smokey) from Eagle Rider  picked us up at the  airport and took us for a drink to the infamous Wild Goose (google it) then to our hotel.  The next day Eagle Riders sent a driver to grab us and take us to their LA office.  We all got set up with our bikes, Mike a 2010 Street Glide, Pete an 09 Electra Glide Classic and me an 08 Ultra Classic. We loaded the bikes up, got directions and off we went. If you have ever driven around LA it can be be a bit crazy, there is freeways going off in every direction.  Pete was going to be the guide, with our directions written on a small piece of paper which he would try to pull out at various times. We had rode about 3 hours and our fuel was getting low, so we pulled into Redman California. We ate and fuelled up and proceeded to get lost in the suburbs. By doing this we ended up taking the wrong entrance onto the freeway and rode an hour the wrong direction. After noticing Vegas was not on the road signs we pulled over and got everything back on the track. The next fuel stop was about an hour outside of Vegas, the sun was starting to go down and it was getting f__ckin cold. We put on every piece of warm clothing we had for the final shot.  Seeing Vegas from a distance at night is pretty sweet. We pulled into the MGM at about 7pm, unloaded our bikes and went and checked in. Somehow a bottle of grey Goose and Red Bull was in the bikes ( US gas stations are so convenient ). In the  morning we took the bikes back to Eagle Rider Vegas and  spent the following  3 days doing absolutely nothing...……I think!
