    Rode up from Bullhead City to Sandy Valley - hooked up with friend Gil and blew through Red Rock to Vegas - got in to Vegas about 3:30 - looped bike on single track on way up from Bullhead - took me 2 hours to get back up ledge to trail - pics & report to follow when not using crackberry as keypad - hopefully I won't be riding to Bullhead in rain tomorrow - time for another cold brew right now

    Dude, you were earning your finisher pin!! I was on the 12GSA with Bob on the 950SE that followed you in on Saturday night out the little 20 mile sand wash!
    Sorry you missed Red Rock Canyon. We went thru the canyon at sunset and it was awesome.
    Glad you made it to Vegas!

    Two words from the LAB2V weekend...Holy Crap!!!

    Riding the big bikes in this event, we had our fair share of challenges...but we made it thru successfully without problems. Helped a lot of people along the way, some of them were having very long days!

    Highlight of the weekend had to be riding red rock canyon. We hooked up with a fellow ADV'r Jim from Maryland & rode thru the canyon. We were furtunate to go thru right at sunset...incredible colors on the mountains!

    We are still in Vegas so when I get back to SB tomorrow I'll download what photo's I have.

    Glad to see some familiar faces & meet some new one's.

    Home after dropping Razr off at home, Scorpion's bike at Razr's, getting home and some lunch at Lucille's.

    Great ride! I'll prepare for it much better than I did this year.

    Time to go clean up and take a nap.
