    I've got a Road King and 1 day in the LV area tomorrow. Where are the best roads, places to see?

    Wrapping the thread up -

    I rented from Eagle Rider Las Vegas, nice people and a clean good-running bike. I rode a big loop around Vegas, starting with a bit of slab 215E to 564 just past Hendersonville then over to the Lake Mead National Recreation area. It's usually $20 to get in, but it was free - maybe due to Veteran's Day?

    Instead of heading south to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam (been there already), I rode north on 167 to the Valley of Fire State Park. Another $10, on the honor system. Across the VoF to the Moapa Travel Plaza for some gas, then south on 15. More slab, but I got to watch a few fighters playing around just north of Nellis AFB. Just after the speedway, take a right onto 215W (a.k.a. CR215) to 95N, then 156 to the Lee Canyon Ski Resort. It was a bit surprising to see snow so close to Las Vegas.

    From there, a right turn to go to Mount Charleston and Rt 157 back to 95. More slab until picking up 159 for a few miles then around the Red Rock Scenic Loop. Finally, back onto 159 to 160 to the Eagle Rental place.

    I didn't keep track of the mileage, but it was a pretty full day of riding at a leisurely pace. The 156/158/157 loop by Lee ski area and Mt Charleston had the best roads of the day, but parts of 167 were nice too. Since Lake Mead was the start of my day and I really needed to return the bike before the shop closed, I skipped Hoover Dam, but now that I know how long the loop is, I'd include it the next time. Hopefully next time I'll have a couple of days and go to the Grand Canyon and Zion, and maybe a couple other parks. But this loop on a HD was a very nice way to spend a day.
