Viva Las Vegas

Inman Ambassador Tigh Loughhead rents a Ducati HypermotardSP on the Las Vegas Strip
I have been in Last Vegas this week (for the first time somehow...), as an Inman Ambassador for Inman Connect Last Vegas

Here I am interviewing someone at Quicken Loans.  
While I'm here, I decided to stay an extra day and try to rent a bike, and obviously if I can... a Ducati.
My buddy Dave tried to put me touch with someone at Ducati Las Vegas, but they never returned my calls, so decided to try out something called Riders-Share, a peer to peer ride sharing app my buddy Jerry had been talking about for a while. 
Lo and behold, I found a Ducati Hypermotard 939 SP for about $100 a day, and as I was only really going to have the bike overnight, that was perfect.
I picked the bike up from a kid named Will, who also rented me a helmet, gloves and jacket (which I had prearranged earlier, as this more than offset the extra luggage cost).
I immediately took the bike down the strip, and did a little lap in the city of sin.
I get free parking at the Cosmopolitan, so I'm going to get an early night tonight (I'm supposed to go to a Zillow party at the W (the old Mandarin Oriental) and be in a reasonable time tomorrow.
I'm absolutely loving this ride-sharing thing though.
