Most memorable ride: Each ride is memorable in its own way, however, if there is one trip that stands out it is the route coming from Arizona back to Nevada. There are hundreds of scenic roads worldwide, but the greatest rides are spiced by the thrill of twisties where motorcyclists can crank open the throttle. It’s pretty common that the most beautiful views are also extremely dangerous. You’re always pretty close to sliding and you really have to concentrate and stay focused. If you fall, you’ll need to have a parachute on. It’s like a Risk/Reward ratio; you get to enjoy the enhanced sense of freedom and the heightened adventure and awareness as you sweep through twisties and curves. Along the way, I enjoyed the views of beautiful cliffs, and scenery that took my breath away. Nevada has some of the best motorcycle roads in the country! Travel just 20 minutes away from Las Vegas and you will discover one of the most incredible motorcycle rides in the state. Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam… These places are head turners for their sensational scenery. Much more than just gambling and partying in Las Vegas!
