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:
TJKBear and Deb
Squirrel (to bring giveaway products )
aqwik69dart (with Lamonster 109 ??)
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.

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!
