  1. Thank You for the comment. The hotels usually make it point to let you know that its bike week and they book only those who are there for bike week. You sound like me, getting int he thick of things, like hitting San Fransisco just as Fleet Week starts and trying to find a room!

  2. We are making the trip this coming May. Driving to Grand Canyon and a few days in Laughlin then a week at the Grandview Las Vegas. Was so glad to hear that the bikers will be gone when we get there. Not that we have anything really against them, we just don’t really fit in and have an uncanny knack for getting in the thick of them when on vacation.
