So is it too late to take that GS back and get the bike you really wanted? The 800XC! What poor timing. Couldn't they have announced that a little earlier. Hope you love that GS!

I can't on the 4th, but I can leave Friday after work until Sunday if that works.

I'm on night shift currently and I wouldn't be able to leave until Saturday morning. We can return home on Sunday night is that's when you need to be back or Monday morning.

Actually, change of plans. I'm not gonna ride this weekend. I'm gonna get out and do some backpacking with Tom Toll. I wasn't sure if our plans were gonna come together, but it turns out they are. Going walking this weekend.

Do any of you Boise folks have any info you could lend this guy about a dirt route from Stanley to McCall? Sounds like he will be trying to hit it tonight or in the morning on his way home to WA.

Hey Boise inmates - my son lost the kick start lever off his KX100, somewhere on the dirt road between Idaho 21 and the Idaho Bird Observatory, after the fork in the road (somewhere in the 3 miles between the fork in the road and the observatory gate). I've ridden it 3 times looking, but if you are out there and happen to see it, please grab it and send a PM. They run like $53 from ronayers.com.....

Many thanks on the search for the needle in a haystack....

I can't even describe how excited I am about this! I was told when I bought my bike in Colorado that Idaho would have a dealer within a few months. It's been over a year! So so so happy that there is dealer here now!
