RIDING THE STRIP
And I mean as in riding the bike through there at night. WHAT A MISTAKE !! Don’t do it.
I don’t ride after dark anymore but it was a beautiful evening (once again) and with all the lights I was ok with riding at night.
It was glorious until I actually reached The Strip but then the traffic was bumper to bumper and the heat built. Being in such a congested area and of course with all the lights, the temperature rose by 20 degrees at least.
The pipes on the bike got scorching HOT in no time. Every time I stopped (and that was every minute or so) I shut the bike off so they wouldn’t get any hotter.
And I mean HOT as in burning the thighs of my leg. Nope, not fun at all.
I did manage to get a few more pics of the motorcycle coming out of the Building. I thought that was pretty cool.
I found a place to park and checked out the HD Cafe. Quite disappointing really. Lots of people there eating and drinking but as I didn’t want to do either I just walked through the restaurant area. And the ‘retail store’ was teenie – about the size of a large closet ! Just a few T-Shirts.
But now I can say I did ‘walk The Strip’ – if only for a few blocks.
And I got much better picture of the Eiffel Tower.
By the time I got back home I was exhausted and not fit to look at ! LOL My left shoulder was very sore from all the clutch action necessary while riding through The Strip. Nope won’t do that again.
Best way to do it is have someone else drive (like when D&D drove me there the first night I arrived) so you can be free to look around.
