Default A Days riding round Las Vegas.

Coming to the States shortly and as a christmas present my wife got me a days Harley hire in Vegas, if you had an 8 hour riding opportunity there, which way would you go?

I was going to say the Hoover Dam also.

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is about 4 hours away...
