    Happy to join this board! I already have found a lot of interesting information browsing this site.

    My name is Bill, 55 years young from Connecticut. I usually come to Las Vegas every year during NFL football season to test my skill at picking football games, both pro and college. Its a great time of the year, as you can wager on both football, baseball, basketball, etc in any sportsbook.

    I usually come with my buddy, but this year am going solo, for Bike week @ the Cashman center October 3rd - 5th. Am looking forward to talk with other bikers around the country and see the group Kansas on Saturday evening as well. I am arriving on September 30th and staying an entire week until October 7th. I enjoy checking out new places everytime I come out. This trip, I could not resist a $40 room at Orlean's and the second night is free. How can you beat a $20 a night room anywhere in the world? Then I've booked 3 days at the new SLS {the old Saraha} which will open next week and hopefully will have the bugs worked out in a Month and a half.

    My last 2 days, I try to spoil myself and stay at Trump, which I believe is a great value for the Dollar. I got a great deal of $101 a night and just love the Trump-like service I have received in the past. This trip, I'm trying to NOT rent a car as I got into a fender bender last trip :-( And am happy a DWI was not in my future...but close, so want to be able to enjoy myself while out and not have to worry about myself or some one else's safety. So, public transportation is key and an occasional taxi or two.

    If anyone is attending Bike Week and wants to have an adult beverage, just email me as going solo is new for me :-(

    Welcome aboard, Bill. That was a great intro. If you'd like to meet up with other board members on your Vegas trip make sure and also post something in the Get Together forum, I think you will get more responses. Good luck on the trip.
