Ain't that the truth ... but fun to watch until he goes out of sight.

Hi All;

I just came upon this ride report, video and photos. I am impressed. I know the work it takes to edit and put together the videos and photos.

It has been many years since I rode that trail system. What good memories it brings back.

On May 17, 2013, I had my right shoulder joint replaced. I have been going through PT twice a week since then and it seems to be getting better. I did fire up my dirt bike last Monday and do a little cruise around town but am not ready for a vigorous crash and burn ride yet; maybe sometime into Sept.

I enjoy this forum but mostly post on the TW200 forum under the nom de plume of Ron in Boise.

Happy Trails All

Ron in Boise

Did that trail last September on the ATV's. We met some Sierra Club members at the meadow and were scolded for "disrupting nature". Two bone stock rubicons doing less than 10 mph. They were were newer jeeps, spinning and leaving a lot larger footprint than us. Silly. My father-in-law works for Blaine county and every year there are rumors that the trail will be closed to motorized vehicles. Saving grace is the yearly rescue. Great report, not sure when I will be brave enough to do it on the tiger.

Biggest mistake you made was engaging these idiots...... IMO give them the finger and ride on.....nothing you can say or do will sway their opinion!

Hey all, got a call yesterday, Shutterman has returned from his epic 60th BD ride to Alaska and back.

Glad to hear your home safe and sound, but now it's time to get back to work

I had a wedding to go to down in Twin Falls this past weekend, and I figured I would head out after the wedding and try to knock out all the IAMC challenge sites I hadn't down in SE ID.

I camped just south of Twin in the south hills along Rock Creek.



I headed south toward Magic Mountain, and over the top to drop down into Oakley and on through City of Rocks.



After you head out from City of Rocks to the SE, there is a whole lot of nothing.



I stopped at the Naf Mercantile for lunch. This place is out in the middle of nowhere, I am always amazed how places like this can stay in business.



I tried to work my way down to Promontory without a map and just the small screen on my GPS. This was one of my failed attempts. I finally decided I couldn't get there from here and turned around at this point.



Finally on the right road, the previous road is down in the bottom there somewhere.



Finally made it to the Golden Spike National Historic Site.





I worked my way from Promontory up to Preston and then over the top towards Bear Lake, I ended up camping near Emigration Pass.



First stop of the next day was Paris Tabernacle church.



After breakfast in Montpelier I worked my way north on Slug Creek. The sheep were on the move.



After hitting Caribou City, I hot footed it up to Ketchum where I spent the night, and then on up towards Stanley, and the Pole Creek Guard Station.







From here I headed up to Redfish Lake.



With my final stop before heading back home at Josephus Lake. After a few days of riding my dogs were barkin'.



This trip wrapped up all of my IAMC challenge sites accept for the ones down in Oregon, which I am thinking about hitting this weekend.

Just did five days with my brothers up in the Clearwater Forest. One doesn't own a bike so he got my wife's TW200. He loved it. Had no trouble keeping up and having fun. Thinks he might get one for his family to share.

Really nice. Great framing on your photos. I didn't know some of that stuff was out there. Does everyone have a Tiger now?
