Valley of Fire

I don't think i'll be going back to the Valley of Fire until the winter or spring. Too hot to ride around there right now.

It's $10 for motorcycles to get into the park so if you ride from the other direction it's on the honor system so you could get in cheaper.

A few signs off Lake Mead on the way to the Gypsum mines.

Found this campsite off Lake Mead. Tucked behind a huge berm so you need to off road to get there.

Custom Cycle Accessories

This is the best parts shop in Las Vegas. Cecil and his wife Jenny have been in business there for over 20 years now. Cecil has been building choppers that have been featured in Easyriders during the 80s. Really nice guy and very knowledgeable. They have mostly new parts stashed behind a curtain of mystery. Not too much used stuff in there though.

5243 W Charleston Boulevard
Las Vegas, NV 89146
(702) 870-8061

Go west on Charleston until you get to Wilshire and turn left.

Open Tuesday - Saturday. Til 5 on weekdays and 3 on Saturdays.

They observe the chopper day off (Monday) which is sometimes a bummer.

Will post pictures if they let me take some.
