I took this incredible tour by scooter (SYM Mio 50) when visiting Las Vegas last month. Red Rock Canyon is amazingly beautiful and only 25 miles west of Las Vegas. Breathtaking scenery the whole way. Thought you all might enjoy it. About half the video is commentary by an amazing tour guide.

If any of you make it completely through the video post let me know and you'll be entered into a drawing for skillions of dollars in cash and prizes.

Apparently the Genuine Buddy 50cc 2-strokes were replaced with Sym Mio 50cc 4-strokes.

Interesting commentary by the tour guide at Willow Spring and Pine Creek Trailhead.

Nice!

We Cannonballed that and it was a real eye opener cuz I never realized how close to Vegas it is. ...we always drive down to Utah to hit the parks, which is a pretty hard two day haul, but in the future I think we'll just fly into Vegarse and rent a car.

...cuz that scenery just keeps going on and on and getting better and better out there!

I don't think I ever thanked you for this JP.

I cycled it last year and it was one of the highlights of my week in Vegas.

Nice video, JetPeddler! It would have been a lot shorter if they used Harleys like the one that passed at 34:30.

Watched it all while I ate my supper, nuked veggies....so like places I have lived and that creasote plant, it’s toxic and addictive, had it where we ranched in northwest corner of Colorado and had to watch for problems with cattle, nickname for it is ‘greasewood’.
What were the temps? Noticed the jackets and wondered what temps you all were riding in.
