    Default Official Las Vegas Meet Thread - May 17-22

    So here goes...

    As per a previous poll thread, there are officially M109riders attending Las Vegas to meet and greet, & take in a few rides around the area. (This thread has the blessing of the previous poll thread owner)

    Myself, Revron, & Biker-chikey +1 have combined reservations spanning from May 17, until May 22, at the Travelodge Centre Strip. There is not a block of rooms reserved, and there is no requirement to stay at the Travelodge. But, as you can see, there is a covered area off the pool side that can be used as a gathering place, social venue, at the beginning & end of most days.

    So far, from the previous thread, the following members have indicated they will be attending:


    • wiskeythrottle505
      biker-chicky
      tazdvl
      dkc923
      VoicesInMyHead
      TJKBear and Deb
      Squirrel (to bring giveaway products )
      aqwik69dart (with Lamonster 109 ??)
    • Copper
      RevRon


    I don't want to presume people are attending however, so if someone on the list from the previous thread cannot attend, 'pm' me & I will modify the list without grief or comment.

    For those that are attending, perhaps post up and list your route, it may work out that members could meet on the road & ride in to Vegas together.

    Revron & I are travelling from Vancouver BC & Kelowna, BC on the 15th, meeting in La Grande, OR. From there on the 16th, travelling to Wells, NV. From there to Vegas, arriving on the 17th. PM me for any further details if you would like to meet us on the ride down for dinner or breakfast even, we are open to any dinner & breakfast suggestions in La Grande or Wells. Can't beat local knowledge.

    Possible Rides:
    - Valley of Fire/Lake Meade/ loop (& Sugars Restaurant recommended for grub),- Death Valley
    - Laughlin-Oatman-Kingman-Hoover Dam
    - Zion National Park
    -
    Grand Canyon West
    - Hwy 95 south & Hwy 165 (Nelson) to Eldorado Canyon; Nipton , California; The Pioneer Saloon in Goodspring Nevada
    - North on the 15 to the 95, headed to Mt Charleston, (possibly? Parumph, Nevada for Tacos El Chero);

    Some of the rides are short, & some long. Anyone with experience in these rides is encouraged to take a lead, plan one, or ....

    Feel free to 'pm' me with any corrections or details to add to this post, so it can evolve as the lead post in the thread for easy reference as we get closer to the dates.

    Ride safe, & hope to see you there!
    Pat, aka Copper

    Since when is there a Vegas Meet? You guys are talking in 2 weeks? Our bikes are tore down and being modified right now, not sure we will be riding during this meet. But if there is a need for repairs or help with a bike issue, please feel free to contact me. PM me your contact info. I have tools and some knowledge about the 109's.

    If you need some help planning some rides, I can offer some help there.

    Maybe you can meet us, it doesn't matter if your on the 9 or on roller skates, it will be great to meet you. Thank you for any tech help that may creep up as well, fantastic offer. I was hoping for a 3-6 hr ride to the valley of death from the strip. Do you know of a decent route?
    Ya, thanks! The meet has been on the board since October last year! where have you been?

    It is with great disappointment that I have to sit this one out I put in for the time off work, but it was not approved (found out for sure today). It is our busy season and we already have a couple of guys out for Toyota classes and vacations approved before mine. I am super bummed! Hope you all are safe and have a great time.
