    Thank you America….


    I just got back from 10 days riding a Harley Davidon Street Glide with a group of mates in the US. We started in Las Vegas and went down to the Grand Canyon and then death valley then back to Vegas (and lots of other places in between). The trip was spectacularly beautiful and awesome fun… I can advice anyone who enjoys riding motor bikes to consider doing a trip around there. My highlight was riding through Death Valley (I got up to 113 mph on one bit of road there)

    I just wanted to say thanks to all the wonderfully friendly people we meet in the USA. Everyone was really lovely and super friendly to us. I really enjoyed my trip and am very warmed by the wonderful way people treated us. Thank you America and Americans for such a great holiday….

    Gaz... I have traveled throughout the world, but still am amazed about my own country America whenever we take a road trip. Wonderful places to visit and an even better place to live.

    Glad you had a good time. Did you get the chance to hit the Valley of Fire 20 miles north of Vegas? or the lake road?

    I've been fortunate enough to visit the US twice - both times to Florida.

    Yes, it was for Disney World and Universal Studios - I'm not going to lie! The people are indeed hospitable and friendly - why wouldn't they be, they live in such a beautiful country.

    It's always fascinated me that people criticise Americans for never leaving their country. Why would they - if they want snow and skiing they can go to Colorado, if they want the desert, they've got Nevada and Arizona, if they want hot beaches they've got Florida and California, if they want a city break, they've got New York.

    Plus, the best golf courses in the world are located all over the States, which is reason enough for me!

    yep.. very spectacular..

    Ha ha... I had to test out how fast it would go... Sort of run out of straight road when I got to 113 so had to slow down... I think it would have gone faster... Mostly we stuck to the speed limit...
