    Vegas in January/February

    Been to Vegas before. Read the other threads of folks renting and riding.

    Most appear to go down in March.

    I知 there for a work gig and have an open day to myself. A little nervous booking in advance and finding the conditions less than favourable.

    Anyone rent a bike on the same day without booking ahead?

    I know it can get cold in the evenings. Maybe I知 overthinking things?

    I just don稚 want to pack a bunch of gear. Figure on footwear, jacket, gloves and helmet should be enough. Maybe a hoodie?

    I was down there Mid January last year and rented a bike for a day, lots of selection with Eagle rider and the temps were fine with a leather jacket or lined mesh. Overnight and early morning is around 2-3 degrees C but temps rise quickly when the sun comes out.

    By day it's between 55-70 in Jan, and 65-80 in Feb. Knock 10-15 degrees off once the sun goes down. Rain this time of year almost never happens. The biggest thing to consider is daylight -- sun rises and sets about 1 hr earlier that Toronto in Jan, and about 1/2 earlier by the end of Feb.

    it can be 55-60 during the day, it can also be 30-35, its the desert. If you leave town and go into the mountains you can find frost/ice on the higher spots early am.
    We have been several times Jan/Feb, its a variable to say the least.

    We were there last week and it was cold. And shockingly expensive.

    Had every intention of renting a bike for a day to go to Red Rock Canyon and ride the strip. Eagle rider had plenty of bikes available, but I imagine in warmer weather you may want to book in advance.
    We brought some gear and expected mild/cool weather, but it never got above 15 & most of the day was single digits! Ended up renting a boring car instead, but it was nice hiking the desert when it wasn't over 100F.

    BTW, Highly recommend the Shelby American museum. All those Cobras and Super Snakes in a row can make a grown man cry! And it was free.
