Here's a quick recap (since I'm not as eloquent as our sport touring crowd with the recaps - and it was over a year ago)
I rented a Heritage Softail and a Fatboy about 5 years ago when I was in Maui. Had the time of my life and did some serious exploring. Learned that it was the BEST way to enjoy a vacation when time and funds permitted.
This particular trip the tables were unkind - and my liver was begging for an afternoon off - so I hit the yellow pages and called up Eagle Riders (just off the strip). They were super cool, and the girls that worked there should have been very wealthy strippers.
Anyway, they cut me a deal on the Night Train ($75 for the day) and gave me some maps and ideas about where to ride. Other than it being stoopid hot outside (like 120deg on the blacktop), it was perfect. Put a little over 200miles on it, and got to see some really cool sights in the process.
The roads were mint, some nice canyons and twisties out there. Had to look out for rattle snakes sunning themselves on the road, and the signs posted about wild donkeys were more than a little amusing. Hardly any traffic outside of town, and I'll admit that there's something about the hum of an HD that makes you feel like a man.
The Night Train (aside from looking pretty badass) was a fun bike. The drag bars took a little getting used to as it wanted to flop over in the slow speed turns - but once you got the hang of it you felt like regular biker trash. Nice torquey cruiser that in some strange way made you understand why people refinance their houses to buy one.
Finished off the ride going up and down the strip trying to pick up girls that I wouldn't have to pay to sleep with - to no avail. Next time I'll do more burnouts to impress em.
All in all, I hope everyone gets the pleasure. HD is really good about renting bikes - and there seriously is no better way to get out and enjoy a vacation. Especially when the chips are down.
