Vegas!!!

So, Friday afternoon, I put a bag of clothes in my trunk and started out to Las Vegas! My excitement soon waned as I made FIFTEEN (15) miles in the first hour. While my baby, Miglena, gets about 20-25mpg at freeway speeds... idling in traffic for an hour just sucks the gas right out of her. I had to fill up again before I even got out of Los Angeles county!

With all the Friday Vegas goers... the whole ride out was pretty uneventful. I had a great time up there visiting with a dear friend whom I hadn't seen in just over 3 years. (Yes, I didn't get back to the hotel room Saturday morning until about noon.)

I just finished the return trip... I left at a little before eight o'clock am. The roads were practically empty. 312 miles in just under 3 hours. I had a GSXR600 try and keep up with me for a few miles, but a quick spurt to 155 for a couple of minutes dissuaded him.

As a side note... If you do not own a radar detector, a good one, I suggest getting one. Averaging 103mph with a gas stop... Priceless.

Re: Vegas!!!

Just wait until my next trip... On the 19th/20th(ish) I'm heading from SoCal all the way to DFW to pick up some guns of mine. My fastest time so far was under on my "slightly" modified '06 R6. My back was killing me by the end! I'll have to dig out my old records to find the precise times/speeds on that one. I'm pretty sure I can beat it this time though...

Re: Vegas!!!

For everyone that hasn't been to Vegas... I recommend it! I make regular trips there... even in the "off season" (if Vegas has one...) It's incredible. The shows, the clubs, the hotels... And if you have time you can go a few miles North on the 15 and blast the Saint George Gorge (I'm not sure if that's it's real name, but it's this 15-20 miles of winding road south of St. George, UT that is phenomenal... just be wary of the troopers that like to hide on some of the corners!) Oh, and if you get a chance, swing by my uncles restaurant at the mouth of Zion during the summer. He's a hell of a chef!
