KTM 690 in Boise/Rekluse

Hi guys, long time no post. I'm a little out of the loop, but does anyone in Boise have a KTM 690 that would be willing to let Rekluse use it for clutch development? We had one for our preliminary measurements, but that person sold it out of state. If your interested, please send me a PM with your phone number and I'll call you. Thank you.

Just a reminder to those IAMC members who haven't paid their club dues yet, you can do it from the club's website, just go to "my account' click on the "membership" tab and scroll down to "purchase membership", you'll notice that the price has dropped for 2014 dues:) For those members who wish to give input concerning the club, nomination of the new officers, or to volunteer to help with any club functions, there will be a meeting after the 2013 Challenge Recognition meeting and dinner on March 22nd.

Anyone planning on trailering to the Wallowa Jamboree this year? I am looking for a mule to haul the heavy stuff, tent, air mattress, chairs, extra rain gear so I can travel light and still live in comfort when I get there. I have a trailer that will haul two bikes if someone wants to use it.

Talking IAMC 2012/2013 Challenge Accounting

For those you are offended that, occasionally, posts here are related to IAMC information please forgive me for adding to your offense. Please bear in mind that we are locals to Boise and many of us troll this thread. Posting info here is quick way to get information out to those who would like to have it.

Now to my point, anyone that participated in either of the 2012/2013 IAMC challenges is encouraged to go to http://www.motoidaho.com/node/2204 and ensure their accounting of which sites they visited is accurate. I'll be counting the beans soon so we can get the correct amount of stickers ordered.

Rain gear? We don't need no stinking rain gear. It's going to be warm and sunny all weekend.

Maybe???

Excellent point Ron, I believe what they have in Oregon is called "liquid sunshine". Way more enjoyable that that nasty "rain" crap we get in Idaho.

Raft River Mountains in the Sawtooth National Forest in NW Utah

Somewhere I saw a mention of a trail that goes south from Clear Creek to the ridge line of the range. I think it said it was open to motorcycles.
Maybe this will help get you started:
http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/sawto...=5807&actid=93
If it were in ID, you'd have the excellent ID trails mapping web site to poke around virtually. Or is there a UT version?

I do not see a MVU map for the Unit, but I could be overlooking it. Such would be your best resource if one exists.

Best of luck!
Enjoy.

New to Boise, Idaho

So I joined this forum in 2007, lurked until 2011, and my last post not including one I just did on this thread, was 11-12-2012, 07:35 PM. I figured I should first reply with hopefully-helpful info in reply to an inmate request before I go on blabbing about myself, which I shall now do:

When I joined, I was a lowly NETRA B-mediocre enduro rider living in upstate NY, starting to think about dual sporting and ADVing. A lot has happened since then, and by grace of chaos, I am now a Boise resident as of last July. And finally an ADV bike owner with the recent acquisition of an F800GSA, this only adds to my ride choices and does not displace my love of offroad and single track on my 250XC or Berg FE450.

I came to ID in great part for motorcycling, my wife and I having fallen in love with the state during a 1996 visit, and it only took 17 years to fulfill a dream, but here we are. I am very excited for the MC people I will meet and the rides I will take of all types as long as the Universe allows me breath and balance.

So that's it for now, just wanted to say hello. And I look forward to bumping in to as many of my fellow Idahoans ADVers as time goes by. This is going to be a good year, I am sure of it.

Be well,

Thanks for poking around for me. I have the MVUM for the area and I found that page about the campground. There is another cool Utah State web page that may be handy if anyone runs across this by accident.

I am mostly looking for local knowledge. I thought maybe someone from Boise had been there before. It is not so far away. Looks like there are a lot of hunters hanging around in the Google Earth image.

Welcome! Now you get to wait for the ice to melt and the ground to dry with the rest of us! :-)
