Yes, I know of two of us at least. I'm from Twin Falls (south-central Idaho). I know of another poster from northern Idaho.

My wife and I live in Meridian, ID and we both ride Vulcans. She has a 900LT and I ride a Nomad. We ride about 15000 miles a year, so we're out there a lot. We have plans for a few long trips next summer, so this winter will give us plenty of time for planning. Yellowstone and Cody, WY is a good possibility as is a ride up into southern BC and Alberta through the Okanagan Valley and the Icefields Parkway.

See you all out there.

(waves) I'm from Calgary, Alberta. We were just down there, came from Lolo to Lewiston, did the Old Spiral Highway en route to Moscow, then did an about face and headed south again. We rode Wawawai road to Clarkston, then headed to Grangeville and points south. Wow.

My wife and I rode pairs on our scooters, and we have radio communications. Every time we came around a courner or over a hill, it was "Oh Wow!". You guys have some of the best riding in the world. The Old 95 Highway in and around White Bird is mind-blowing, as is the ride from Horseshoe Bend to Challis. So anyway, we rode down the Salmon River, visited as we lunched in Riggins, then took a wrong turn and ended up at Weizer, where we stayed before heading along the Payette, Deadwood and Salmon Rivers to Big Hole Pass and finally Wisdom, MT. From there we made our way north and west through Montana as far as the Bull River Road before heading back through Rexford. Wow! 2200 miles in nine days, almost all of it looking at the next curve...

Idaho has incredible riding. Why do you keep it a secret? I am already planning to return. There are places we never got to, like the road behind Coeur d'Alene Lake and down through St.Maries to Orofino, then back to White Bird to explore it further before heading into the Palouse and adventures further west and north.

We met many really nice people, generous and hospitable. We truly enjoyed our time there, and plan on returning again in a few weeks and probably again in September, after school goes back in and the crowds thin at Yellowstone.

You who head north up US93 might be interested to know of the Trails End Motel in Salmon. Ron and Carla are bike people, very friendly, and the rates and rooms are excellent value. We'd already covered 280 miles that day and were happy to find them. (Idaho has inner bigness!)

Anyway, salute from Calgary. I'll see you on the road. Watch for Alberta plates... LOL!
