Weekend Behind Bars

Got on the road from San Diego Saturday heading north for Las Vegas. I did a freeway burn up I15 and about 5 hours later I was in the Las Vegas Harley parking lot. I rode through town but nothing I saw convinced me to get off of the bike so I headed to Hoover Dam. Sure were a lot of people out there! I felt a burning need to keep riding so I pointed the bike south. There is no finer riding than going through the desert late in the day! I ended up in Twentynine Palms for the night. I hit the road at first light riding through Joshua Tree National Monument as the desert woke up. Then headed to Palm Desert and up the Pines to Palms Highway. What a great ride!

A trip like that is when you really appreciate your Roadglide

Yeah! Great about sums it up! I try to get out every weekend and now that the temperatures in the desert are dropping (a little) I can go farther. This was a 910 mile weekend. I bought this bike in February and am over 15k. A good start!
