    I just got back to the states a few days ago, and live In Las Vegas. Didn't have enough prep time to go on this ride. I'm sure some ones already posted the same offer probably, but, I've got a truck, trailer, tools, all that good shit, and have the next 4 months off from work, so if anyone gets to Vegas and needs a hand with ANYTHING, don't hesitate to call me up at 740-352-5771. If I wasn't crashing at a friends place right now I'd invite a few of you to crash in my living room, but oh well, better luck next year! Stay safe you FF's.

    I just spoke to Lieutenant Davis, and he wasn't really into that.
    "We are not a storage lot nor an RV park". :norton

    I was also informed that "there are about 10 signs in that lot saying we will tow your vehicle". :cry

    I have been prepping for that because I know how much of a pain they are. Just came up with a waterproof system for charging the 2 that are mounted to the bike, and the 1 that is mounted to me is a Hero3+ with a battery backpack. Should last between fuel stops.

    As for the video, it won't be very long. However the editing process will be because I intend to produce a very exciting one!

    As for my Youtube channel, Here is the link. I just uploaded one called "BMW F800GS Hooliganism" it will give you an idea of what the LAB2V video will be like. I also suggest watching "CR500 Wheelie Over" it is pretty entertaining. Good thing I was wearing full gear.

    Never thought I would be one of the many who have done that to that poor bike. It has happened before when a noob got on it but they weren't even trying to wheelie. I have been riding that bike since I was in middle school, but put a camera on me and tell me to do a wheelie and something is bound to go wrong! :rofl

    Thanks for the heads up. It's out of the way but I guess I can park at Nellis.

    Because with my luck, I'll be the one they tow.

    How do they know which vehicles people drive in that stay at the hotel and spend their money there? That's ridiculous! I'd just park in a busy area where all the vehicles are. When you arrive on Saturday, go get your vehicle and move it to the fenced-in area that is reserved for LA-B-to-V from Saturday, 11/30 to Sunday, 12/1. It's in the back. They will have a sign on it, but I don't know when they put up the sign. As I said, it's fenced in and locked up, I think.

    If the guy knew how many rooms are booked because of LA-B-to-V, he wouldn't have made that comment to you. :pissed

    I'm fairly quiet on here but I figure it's worth a shot...

    I had two ride buddy's that backed out, last minute. And I just had leave approved as of hours ago and I already paid my entry.

    I was hopeful I might be able to snag a spot and a seat in a trailer or truck to LA late tomorrow or early/ mid day the 28th. I am getting off duty tomorrow and if I can't carpool I will put the 17's back on the DRZ and ride to LA and back to Vegas on sumo trim.

    I know it's a long shot but I moved to Vegas semi recently and it's on the way for some of my fellow riders.

    Please let me know what you would like for compensation I can meet you by the highway and bring my own straps.

    If you would like any character rederences please let me know,

    +1. The busy area for the hotel is the Tropicana Ave side by the giant neon sign and main entrance. I'd avoid the parking structure and side areas. :thumb
