Went to Mt Home and was amazed at how many antique bikes were entered in the Vintage Motorcycle Cannonball Run 2012. Bikes ages ranged from 1913 - 1930. Still running and I saw first hand were Harley's got there reputation for leaking oil. Originally it was by design as was the " once thru" lubrication. I know the Best Western had to have the parking lot scrubbed after the event. Met one gent from England and he was asking were he could get some Non detergent 50 weight oil. Seems his 1929 Harley Davidson JD had already used the 4 gallon supply he had started with. After about 30 min on the phone I was able to find a 5 gallon bucket of 50 weight at a old fab shop and took him down to purchase the oil. Great event lots of stories and the sounds of these old bikes was amazing. Hope to meet and start riding with some people in and around the Boise area.

weekend escape - desperate!

I really, really need to get out of the Treasure Valley this weekend and into some clean air for a change. Problem is, with wildfires in so many places, I don't know which way to turn. I did some online research and found only a few locations where the gov't is monitoring air quality and reporting it in real time.
I'm thinkin' maybe if I head out toward the southeast I could breathe a little, if just for two days....
Suggestions? Ideas? Cautions?

I came back from the Imnaha/ Halfway area Sunday night, the sky was still blue but there was most definately still a haze, nothing you could smell or tast though. And as a bonus, we stayed in a FS campground and were able to build a campfire.

Went up to Bear Valley northwest of the Trinity Ridge fire on Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised to see blue skies. Not a bad day trip up there.

Smoke

I went to Paker John and No Business lookouts yesterday. They were both totally socked in with smoke. From Packer John looking east it was all smoked in. I would bet that Deadwood and Bear Valley are just as bad. At No Business, the lookout guy said the smoke has been blowing in from the north the last couple of days.

Time to dig all that old gear out! The Backcountry Pursuit is moving forward and starting to collect gear. Our location is finalized at 671 S Capitol Blvd in downtown Boise. We will be there from 11am-2pm and 4pm-6pm M-F starting on Wednesday, Sept 26th. We'll be under an easy-up in the parking lot while construction is finishing in the store.

This is a great way for you guys to get rid of all that old stuff you have lying around and make some money! It also will help a fellow Adv'er, AKA me, start a local business from scratch. Please get as much of the dirt and dust off as you can and have it ready to go on the floor for sale when you drop it off.

I'd love to have anything related to adv motorcycling, camping, hiking, skiing, kayaking, etc, etc, etc. Anything that is in good shape and you want to sell, I'd love to have!

Please send all communications through private message here, email at backcountrypursuit@gmail.com, or to my cell phone at 208-995-7060. I don't want to get in trouble for spam, but I hope you guys become a major part of my business. So I am letting you know, ITS TIME!!! Wish me luck and come down to see me!!

Noticed skies getting better yesterday on Thorn Creek Butte close to the fire closure boundary. Biggest downside I saw to riding was thick dust on the roads. It's bone dry up there. I'd like to wait for one good rain before I ride, if possible. Yesterday morning with the family:

I have a couple of jerseys and a pair of pants...also some handlebars but not sure if that is something you want to carry.

I just saw this video that is supposed to be a promotion for Icon gear but I really think it does a better job of promoting Triumph. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTvYA...layer_embedded This makes me want an 800XC and i am sure ti makes you want to go ridding yours. If only I could ride like those guys.

Good luck with the new adventure!

RetroTouring

I'm here and still alive.

I just started a new thread over here http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...7#post19684337 on my latest ride. The adventure was as much the machines as it was the ride so sit back relax and enjoy RetroTouring.

2012 Lazy Butt

Just finished a week of singling tracking out of Burgdorf.
Got a break on the smoke. Even had the “Mormon Miracle”, a bit of rain.
First time I have really ridden the area, still more trails to explore and I need to ride Victim ( Victory ) Creek before I turn 60.

Me making the last stretch up Nether Creek out of Burgdorf campground. It was steep, loose and rocky- awesome trail !
