Here at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson , we think it’s absolutely imperative that we open the eyes of all our customers to the miles upon miles of what can only be called a motorcyclists’ playground that surround the chaos and commotion of the Las Vegas strip.

So you don’t miss a single mile of Nevada’s beauty on your next trip to Vegas!

Don’t have your motorcycle with you? Don’t worry!
Las Vegas Harley-Davidson has you covered! You can stop by our dealership and rent a bike from us! Visit the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson website to learn more about our rental program.

One of the best places in Vegas to get your two-wheel fix is Red Rock Canyon.

Red Rock Canyon – Red Rock Canyon is less than an hour’s drive west of Las Vegas. 13-mile loop drive offers sightseeing, vistas and overlooks. If your time is limited, stop at either of the Calico Vista points. Both offer good vantage points for photographs of crossed-bedded Aztec sandstone.
