"I'll be back before dark..." - Wandering in SW Idaho
Decided to see Silver City (ID) for the first time, after all, this is why I researched and thought and talked and talked about buying a dual-sport.
I don't hunt or fish very much and I've lived in Idaho for over 20 years and really never seen any of the state except from paved roads.
I have a friend who hiked the entire 'Idaho Centennial Trail' two summers ago (yes, the entire trail in one summer, only one of like 7 or 8 guys to ever do that) and he had inspired me to get out and see my home state.
The remodeled Catholic Church in town. They really did a nice job and it looks great.
This is the old schoolhouse. Looked like they are raising money to restore it as well.
Inside the hotel restaurant and bar. Really cool old bar with the old outdoor signs from the past on the walls.
A couple of the shops across the Main Street from the hotel.
Met this gal from Tacoma, WA who has put almost 50K on her URAL in the last five years. Was on a road-trip with a friend and came from Boise to Silver City and actually stayed the previous night at the Silver City hotel. Said she could actually confirm that the hotel was haunted...sounds like a fun night.
Here is the new travel partner, a 2000 BMW F650 Classic 'Funduro'. She is a pretty smooth riding thumper, does great on the gravel and dirt and I need to come up with a name for her. A couple more trips and maybe something will come to me.

I need to get up there...
I owned a couple of F650's loved those bikes. I've been deep inside those beasts more than once...
