I live in Vegas, but mainly do trackdays. I am getting ready to sell my last street legal bike. check out sincitysportbikes for local rides etc.

you can also try 702sportbikes, but that site has been dying a slow death.

There are some track days coming up at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, about an hour out of town, check out trackxperience for those.

Welcome to Vegas

Michigan to Vegas.........good luck with that

Michigan average high of what 80-82 in the summer (depending on if you are in the south end or north end of the state)

Vegas average high of what 106 in the summer

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

But it's a DRY heat..

Actually 106 ain't bad. It's over 110 that the dry heat get's old.
It's freaking hot.

We also have an average high of 58 in January! Take that northern Midwest!
We also average 21 days of precipitation per year. Lots of sunny days out here

My wife has been in MN since April, and is subtly trying to get me to move there, but I don't think she truly remembers what winter is like there.
Didn't the streets in downtown Minneapolis freeze solid this winter when a pipe burst or something?

You truly don't appreciate things until you don't have them.
Not riding for 4 to 6 months a year makes the other months gold.

I think about this every day. I just hope I get out before property values plummet. Might as well enjoy it while it is here though.
edit: I just noticed you are from California. I hope you don't think your state is immune to the problem of Lake Mead drying up. Even though you aren't in SoCal, I imagine you will feel the economic aftermath.

Been thinking about moving to Las Vegas. Shit is CRAZY expensive here in the bay! 1 bedroom apartments go for a an average of $2000/month in the bay. In Las Vegas, you can find a 1 bedroom starting at $650. Sure, it's hotter than hell in the summer in LV, but that's what A/C is for. Plus all that extra $$$ you can save, can be spent on the track!!
