If you like long-distance off-road riding, you can ride for 200 miles through the Owyhee Mountains in Southern Idaho, best in the fall when the roads are dry and the rattlers are cold. A ride up Highway 95 from South to North is well worth it, but watch out for deer. A ride from Boise or Twin Falls up through the Sawtooths - simply a must before you die. Be careful for deer and elk, though. I actually saw a guy die who hit a deer on that road. Very sad for him and the deer. Wow, I need to ride more. I'm making myself depressed thinking of all the rides I still have not done in this amazing state.
I live in S.E. Idaho, and while we have some great DS riding, NORTH Idaho is where it's at if you want twisty pavement. Just pick about any non-superslab road, and it's good (but even I-90 from St. Regis to Cda is pretty good). Just watch out for logging trucks.
