Laughlin, Let the Games Begin
Thursday morning, the weather is fine, there's a little wind, but after breakfast we head for town. There are huge parking lots full of motorcycles and more arriving all the time. We find a parking spot at the first casino, The Riverside Casino. The first vendor is the Harley Davidson Motor Co. exhibit. They have all their bikes to show and offer test rides. Marie likes the new Sportster called the Nightster. I like it too, I like it a lot.
Next we hit the shopping areas. There are hundreds of vendors in each of the casino parking lots all along the strip. I am looking for an LED taillight, a hat and some t-shirts, but there is so much to look at.
When we start to get hot and tired we end up at a Mexican restaurant across the street from The Riverside Casino called Casa Serrano. From there we can look down at the main street and watch the bikes and assorted entertainments while sipping cold margaritas. Life is good.
As night begins to fall we head back out, there is nothing so good as riding on a warn desert evening.
Tomorrow I'm thinking a little ride to the grand canyon.
