Re: What's happening....

Las Vegas for New Years was a lot of fun.

Took a bike ride from Fremont St all the way to the Las Vegas sign and back, 14 miles round trip. Fun ride, but riding through gridlock traffic with half drunk and very distracted drivers made for an interesting ride.











Lots of Cops out. Lol.


New Years Eve they shut down the strip to cars.




It was a great trip.

Re: What's happening....

Vegas on news years looks like a great time. Riding bikes in drunk traffic not so good.

Re: What's happening....

The show is called “Being Savage” and looks like it’s going to be similar to Mythbusters. Make stuff, test stuff, break stuff. Not sure when it will air.

Hey, cool. Those are the same tires I just picked up for my heep. I picked up a set of 5, 37x12.5r17's for $840 with 1 brand new and the other 4 with less than 300 miles on them. Everything I've seen leads me to believe they are great tires on and off road. I'm looking forward to getting my 17" wheels to get these mounted up and then try them out (if I have enough clearance. I may have to trim some and/or move my front axle back just a bit. )
