|About the Premiere Valley Tour
The Premiere Valley Tour originates out of Las Vegas, Nevada. This motorcycle tour takes the rider around the Boulder Basin inside Lake Mead Recreational Area, Lake Las Vegas, North and South Shores, Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire and Muddy Mountain Area: This particular trip doesn't go down into the Dam, like the Hoover Dam Discovery Tour, so you may not spend a lot of time at the Dam to finish at a reasonable time. Visit Hoover Dam, get some photos and move along on the tour into other areas.
Much of the tour scours unadulterated areas of the eastern Mojave Desert, meaning for the most part, you're in isolated areas of desert wilderness. Once leaving the Dam, the rider will move swiftly around some excellent riding areas capturing memories that will last a life-time.
Since you'll be riding across an environment with no provisions, it's important to carry some things like water and snacks, and definitely a full tank of petrol. So, if you cruise the strip the night before, please FILL-IT-UP prior to heading out. Due to the isolation of this particular trip a meal will be hard to come by, nor is there much time to have a set down.
Don't forget your camera - Just 4 The Ride!
It will take us approximately 7 hours to complete the 180+ miles for the Premiere Valley Tour.
Doesn't sound like a lot of miles but is long, exhausting and FUN!
One particular day at Hoover Dam we were given a nice treat of seeing Big Horn Sheep scale the sides of cliffs with amazing sure-footedness. Something to keep an eye out for!
Couple of us thought if would be interesting to take a hike up the
O'Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge at Hoover Dam.
What did we find? Prepare to get dizzy
Nick gives us a nice view of Hoover Dam from the River Side of Hoover Dam on top of the Mike O'Callaghan Pat Tillman Bridge.
One of the best photos of Hoover Dam we've ever been able to get.
One photographer standing back away from the edge - less butterflies. We approached the edge with a slight sense of caution...
As can be seen by the hand rail, to our surprise is very short in height. Many people behind us were all walking along the concrete barrier, not the ledge. We could only guess there will be a cage over this pretty soon and no doubt fees.
This isn't Google Earth, about 1/4 way out on the bridge, if you look straight down this is something you might see, realizing your life is in the hands of engineers.
We thought these list of rules for the O'Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge at Hoover Dam were a bit outlandish on the image below, don't you think? Just saying...
It would possibly read better if it said Do not drop objects from the bridge - Dropped objects can kill. Don't climb on hillsides, walls or railings. No children allowed on bridge without adult supervision. No animals allowed on bridge except service dogs.
Aside from the water being low at the Recreation Area of Lake Mead. Lake Mead has now more than DOUBLED their fees to enter at $10 per automobile and $10 per motorcycle. Then right around the corner at another park area, another $8 fee is require per bike. So, for 2 bikes your looking at $50 in fees for the day.
2010 the fees for a bike were $6
We're awaiting dam fees now...
Nice motorcycle roads of Nevada
Big Horn Sheep - Yes (Below) :)
This guy was a little to close for comfort but seem to be busy eating. He looks to be hanging around but just wandering about from the wild. We saw him 2 days earlier on a ride. Male Big Horn Sheep have the round curly horns & the females have the short straight horns and babies cute as a button.
Get lots of photos
Look at the vivid colors below! Great motorcycle roads of Nevada
After looking around a bit, we had to ask ourselves if this was a modern day rendering of Petroglyphs. Petroglyphs are found on a dark glaze located on the side of canyon walls in some areas at the Valley of Fire.
Rainbow Vista - Beautiful layers of rock and great roads.
Muddy Basin Wilderness - Favorite place to stop.
