LA to Las Vegas?

Anyone ever done LA to Las Vegas?

Just kinda wondering if it's a stupid idea to sit on I-15 dodging
trucks and cars for 3 or 4 hours on a Saturday morning.

Also wondering whether anyone lane shares coming back out
in the parking lot that develops just south of LV for the 5 to 10
miles to the California border on Sundays. I know lane sharing is
not legal in Nevada. Don't know however whether the highway
patrol enforces it in that area if traffic is at a standstill.

It's pretty straight forward run. Traffic does suck if you leave late Friday, traffic is worse on Sunday late so leave early if possible. As for the lane sharing, they wouldn't be able to catch you because the lanes are clogged ha ha ha.

The worst part is getting out of LA after that not a big deal on a bike. Took me less than 4 hours to get there from Norwalk stopping just before Barstow to eat a Subway Sandwich and gas up. If you get a chance go through the Valley Of Fire. Take water because it get hot as hell there...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQ-Ec8XzVlM

Most boring ride in the world. I have friends in Palmdale I visit regularly. Did the ride a few times. Now drive. The other thing that is regularly bad is the winds. Getting blown into the adjacent lane a few times puts a damper on the what little fun factor there is.

I do Vegas to LA all the time. I actually like the ride. It's easy and maybe I've been lucky but I have had many near death experiences.

Just check traffic before you head out.
