    Laughlin & Vegas bike fest

    I just returned from Vegas bike fest, don't even know how to say it so I will say it as I see it......SAD, totally SAD! Less riders, a lot less vendors, food vendors are not very good. I think I am done with Laughlin & Vegas bike fest, love the ride up there and back but bike fest is totally waste of money and time for me. The sad part of all this is Laughlin bike fest has more vendors than Vegas this year.....how sorry is that?

    I also heard (don't know how true) that the place where bike fest is held each year was bought by another owner and he doesn't like bike fest and bikers so he is not going to allowed bike events there. Anyone heard of this?

    Couple good things came out of our trip to Vegas bike fest are a buddy that rode up there with his Harley ended up trading with a 2020 RGS from Henderson Harley when we were there for poker run. Henderson HD was our last stop and while we were trying to cool down and relax he saw RGS so he made a mistake and ask the sale guy about it and the rest is a happy history...114 cu in with some upgrades included and he got a great deal on it so he traded his Harley and rod that baby home.

    Another buddy that rides RG CVO ended up getting J&M 6 speaker/amp system installed and he loves it. I was hoping to find Fosgate and they weren't there, if not I will be coming home with their 4 speakers/amp system installed.

    Riding up there was great, weather was nice and cool, coming back was a bit hot. Overall Vegas is still as busy as ever, I mean tourist attraction Las Vegas Blvd, and Freemont Street. I smell marijuana everywhere, people smoke that crap all over the place. People watching was the best thing there if you are bored, I was while waiting on my wife trying her luck so I walked outside of Casino and watch all kinds of craziness going on.

    Was wondering if you would go this year. Too busy to get away and come down this year but it sounds like it's slowing down. Could have been the weather that kept people away from up north and east.

    Weather was actually very nice this year, I was bummed to see a lot less vendors. Big vendors like Fosgate, CIRO, J&P, Sena, Kuryakyn, Mustang, Cobra, etc., did not show, very thin out bike fest. I don't know if Vegas bike fest will happen next year, I would not be surprise if it doesn't. The sorriest Vegas bike event I have ever been to for sure. Fremont street had more activities than where the bike fest was.
