  1. Hey all! I am looking for people to ride with in the Greater Jackson/Teton area. I live in Driggs and enjoy riding through the parks and old service roads. Looking for other riders to ride with this summer, love doing overnight trips and bike packing. Cheers!
  2. The Idaho Recreation Council (IRC) is in the process of drafting legislation requiring out of state residents to purchase a non-resident off-road sticker in order to use any OHV (motorcycle, ATV, UTV, etc.) in Idaho. The purpose of the legislation is to increase funding for our trails. Sounds great to have someone else help us pay the bill for trail maintenance except that requiring non-residence to pay-to-play will eliminate reciprocity with other States. The problem with the loss of reciprocity is that it will hurt us in the Panhandle of Idaho the most. PANTRA is trying to get in front of this so the Northern part of Idaho is considered while the legislation is being written. The only way we are going to be considered is if we make noise before the legislation is written and introduced. We're asking for your help by contacting the IRC, IDPR, County Commissioners, Governor Butch Otter, and your local Representatives and voice your objections to any legislation that would cause Idaho to lose reciprocity. Non-residents who will be affected by the proposed legislation are encouraged to contact our Idaho Representatives also. Full details and contact information can be found here (http://pantra.org/call-to-action/idaho-non-resident-ohv-legislation/).
  3. Wondering if anyone has done both and can tell me if there are any major differences between the two....Am thinking about Ridaho this summer on my Beta 300, I have an appx 130-140 mile range, more with a MSR .8L fuel container.
  4. I may be headed to McCall, ID this 4th of July weekend for a family reunion. I was thinking of bringing my moto for a few days of riding. I would like to hook up with any persons or groups riding single-track that weekend, tougher the better. I am a 40+ Expert rider. My bike is plated, although I have no turn signals. I have a 80 mile range tank. My only Idaho riding experience so far has been the Idaho City 100 2-day, and it was great! If no one is riding and I have to ride solo, any singletrack loop suggestions would be appreciated. I will be staying near the Lake Fork area. Thanks, Jack
  5. I was riding Hells Canyon on Saturday and had a zipper blow out on my pack. I managed to find everything except my GYTR tuner (go figure). I have spent quite a bit of time looking for it myself with no luck, if anyone was out there on Saturday and happened to find it I'd really like to get it back. It's in an olive colored Blackhawk pouch unfortunately so it has great camo. Odds are it is somewhere between the last switch back when coming up from the bottom along that open, steep slope before the trail crosses a small stream since that's where most of the other stuff was found.
  6. I have a 2005 CRF450x, ride mostly around Boise/Hemingway/Little Gem/Idaho City Got a buddy running the Motoz hybrid and while he likes it, will probably be switching back to an MT43. I just got this bike this year and it came with a terrible Sedona MX887IT. Runs all over the place. What do you guys suggest that would be good all around. I'm open from knobby-hybrid-trials.
  7. Hey fellas, I am going to be up in the Ketchum area next weekend and we are looking to ride some single track. Anything from fast and flowy to super technical will work for us. I searched and found another thread that was more for dual sport. Anyways we are looking forward to seeing what ID has to offer! I think we are going to try and pick up a trail map somewhere if we can find one. Any suggestions on rides would be appreciated!
  8. Idaho City 100 has been one of the Premier Off Road races in the USA. The Boise Ridge Riders will continue to host the Idaho City 100, the first weekend, in June. It will, no longer be a ISDE Qualification event. The new format to Qualify for the ISDE, is a "Sprint Enduro". Two or three, short courses, of two or three miles. Plus, a MX track. One races a lap or two over a two to three mile course. Then sit around and wait, at ones pit area, to do it again. Followed by a couple timed laps on a MX track. Areas needed for this type of event are suitable for a New Year's day Marathon. With a MX track and a few hundred acres... AMA ISDE East Qualifier Series Round 1: Jan. 21-22, Seville, Fla. River City Dirt Riders Round 2: Feb. 11-12, Gaston, S.C. Full Gas Enduro Series Round 3: Feb. 25-26, Greeneville, Tenn. Full Gas Enduro Series AMA ISDE West Qualifier Series Round 1: Jan. 28-29, Gorman, Calif. Ventura County MC Round 2: March 11-12, Payatte, Idaho. Boise Ridge Riders*** Round 3: April 1-2, Washougal, Wash. Lobos MC AMA ISDE 3-Day Qualifier May 12-14, Johnson City, Tenn. Full Gas Enduro Series Here is a look at the 200 acre, Payette, ID/Clay Peak County park... I think of all the great Off Road Races in the North America, Idaho City 100, Tecate 250k Enduro, Blackwater, VCGP, Quicksilver National Enduro...Long, brutal Off Road races. Events one remembers for a lifetime.
  9. By Rocky Barker One of the largest chunks of private land in Southern Idaho changed hands for the second time this year and the apparent new owners already have a reputation for shutting the public out. Southern Pine Plantations, a private timberland investment company based in Macon, Ga., sold the 172,000 acres of timberlands. Those forests, primarily in Valley, Boise and Adams counties, are intermingled with Boise National Forest, Payette National Forest and Idaho state endowment lands, along with other nonindustrial private lands. The deed, which was filed in Valley County on Tuesday, lists D.F. Development LLC as the new owner with Robert Early as the contact at a mailing address in Cisco, Texas. I called Southern Pine Plantations, which confirmed the sale but would not reveal the buyer. So I did an Internet search of Robert B. Early, of Cisco, Texas, and found a story in the Fort Worth Star Telegram, one of the Statesman’s sister papers in McClatchy. That story said Robert Early is the chief financial officer for Wilks Brothers. Farris and Dan Wilks are the west Texas founders of Frac-Tech Services, a hydraulic fracturing and oil-field service company that sold to a Singapore company for $3.5 billion in 2011. So I called the Wilks Development Corp., also in Cisco, Texas, which is run by Kyle Wilks, the son of Farris Wilks. I asked for Robert Early and got his assistant’s voicemail. Repeated calls Wednesday and Thursday have not gotten a response. A Wilks Brothers purchase in Southern Idaho would be par for the course. The Wilks have been buying as much as 300,000 acres of land in Montana over several years. They bought 38,000 acres of land in Idaho County, completing the deals in 2015, and apparently closed access to local residents for hunting and recreation, the Lewiston Tribune reported. The Tribune reported that, according to the Idaho County Assessor’s Office, the brothers started buying ranches in western Idaho County in 2008, worth a combined total of $2.4 million. The brothers did not talk to the Tribune. After that report, Idaho Republican Congressman Mike Simpson cited the Wilks’ purchase as an example of what would happen if the federal government sold off its public lands, like former presidential candidate Ted Cruz had proposed. “All of a sudden, they denied access,” Simpson said of the Wilks brothers. “All of a sudden, people couldn’t access their favorite fishing hole or hunting ground. A side note: The Wilks brothers were among the biggest supporters of Cruz, giving a pro-Cruz political action committee $15 million. The timberland they apparently bought this week once belonged to Boise Cascade, which kept it open to the public. Potlatch, the Spokane-based timber company, sold it to Southern Pine Plantations in April for $114 million. Prior to Potlatch acquiring these lands in 2007, they were owned by Western Pacific Timber and its mercurial former billionaire owner, Tim Blixseth. He bought the land in 2004 from Forest Capital Partners, which had bought it from Boise Cascade. Blixseth also kept it open to the public. Blixseth told me in 2004 he wanted to trade the land within the Payette River corridor, and 10,000 acres on the back side of West Mountain. He said he was prepared to trade 115,000 acres of the land as part of a complicated plan he had. But Blixseth, who was embroiled in controversy over his exclusive Yellowstone Club near Big Sky, Mont., had a lot of grand plans that never materialized. He was released from jail in Montana last month after serving 14 months on a contempt charge connected to the Yellowstone Club bankruptcy. Even though the Wilks brothers have not talked to the Lewiston Tribune, Farris did do an interview with the Great Falls (Mont.) Tribune earlier this year. The brothers have been trying to consolidate land at one of their ranches by doing a trade of their own with the Bureau of Land Management. So far, the BLM has rejected the idea. But the brothers, in an act of good faith, allowed hunters and anglers access across their private land. Farris told the Great Falls Tribune that the brothers spend about four months of the year in Montana, and both are building new homes at the N Bar Ranch at Grass Range in Fergus County so they can spend more time in the state. It’s their land, and they can do what they want. But their good-faith gesture in Montana could show they might be willing to open their land to public access in Idaho, perhaps under the Access Yes program managed by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. If they did, they might find Southern Idahoans welcoming their new neighbors.

  10. I am the proud owner of a trials bike 500 miles away. Is anyone traveling from Boise to somewhere in WA anytime soon and have room for a VERY light bike? Some gas $$, beer, and my undying gratitude await. Any takers?
  11. How strict are they on the 99db limit in the oreana race? I was wanting to do this and I have a white brothers carbon pro with spark arrestor on my bike and I know its over that
  12. So how did everyone do? This was my first desert race. I'm so stoked I completed the whole thing. I heard alot of people gave up after the first loop. First things first. I'm getting my suspension revalved. That course was brutal!!!!
  13. Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone on here has ridden the motorcross track, in Salmon, Idaho? I'd like to know more about it, because I really want to try it out. I'd like to know if there are any races, or practices that go on regularly, any fees, requirements (OHV requirements). I'd be interested in meeting up with anyone to ride, I do a lot of trail riding and want a change. Thanks for the info! Christopher
  14. Would you move to the center of off-road paradise if it meant having to drive an hour + to work? We have the opportunity and are weighing our options. Here is what would change: Driving kids to school, now is 20 mins, would change to 15. District quality is comparable, size is much smaller. I work from home, but supply runs (once/twice a month) would be 1 1/2 hours as opposed to 1/2 hour currently. My wife's drive (4 days/week) would go from 20 mins to 55 and over a mountain pass. Groceries, post office, hardware store, interstate access would be similar - about 20 mins. Mortgage would be a little lower, if not the same, taxes would be lower. Owned-acreage would grow from 6 with an incredible view to 32 in a sunny mountain valley backed against national forest. We would be dead-center in the meca of off-road riding and would never have to load up to go ride again. As opposed to being an hour from there now, which is where I always ride anyway. My wife has all but quit riding because she hates to load up to go ride. She would rather just hop on her bike and take off when the urge hits, like she could when growing up (in that area). She would definitely get more into riding again. Gas prices are going nowhere but up. Think it would be wise to make the move? It should be a simple answer, but I feel like it would be an irresponsible move for some reason. Any thoughts? Opinions?
  15. I thought I would post this up here for all to check out. This is everybodys chance to get involved in keeping trails open to OHV use. You can attend in person ( the best way ) or send in your written comments. If we don't get involved in some large numbers we are going to be riding around in a dirt parking lot somewhere, maybe, if the greenies let us. 👍 USFS PLANNING RULE MEETINGS ANNOUNCED FOR INTERMOUNTAIN REGION The Forest Service is revising the regulations used to formulate Forest Plans (known as the Planning Rule).

  16. I am going to be in Boise next week for a work thing and am thinking about maybe dragging the dirty bike over with me if there is anything not snowed in right now. I have been hearing about all the great riding in your area and figure I might as well try it on my employers dime.
  17. Hello guys is there any hare scrambles in the spokane / cda area I am not really the motocross type and would love to get a couple races in next year.
  18. I have rode out Oreana once before, I did the 100 race in 2008. I would like to ride out there again. Could anyone help me with a few tips on where are good areas to park and ride from? Im lookin' to ride out there feb.-mar. and oct-nov. I ride a '06 crf250x, like to ride 40 to 70 miles a day , my skill level is average to good. Thanks for any help!
  19. Where are the best trails in Idaho. I ride in southen to South east to west Idaho need something different
  20. 😏 http://www.idahostatesman.com/2011/01/14/1487995/otter-complains-to-interior-secretary.html#storylink=omni_popular
  21. Have any of you guys from Idaho done this ride? Is it as death defying as it looks on this video? NUTS!
  22. Gonna be at the St Anthony dunes the first weekend of October (1,2,3). Maybe i'll see a fellow TT'er out there?
  23. Has anyone been out there? Is there much snow or ice. I'm dying to ride but hate to go very far.
  24. Per Todd at IDPR: "I just got off the phone with the Mountain Home Ranger District and they are extending the Blacks Creek riding closure until April 21 as the heavy rainfall has washed out culverts, created multiple landslides and supersaturated soil conditions. The USFS will continue to monitor the conditions weekly, in an effort to open the Danskins as soon as possible. Later today the USFS will be sending out a press release to the clubs and the public, complete with pictures of the concerns. Please adhere to the closures to help ensure we have continued access to the Blacks Creek area in the future. Sorry for having to deliver the bad news"
  25. Not familiar with getting a dirt bike plated in Idaho. Are the DMV guidlines relaxed up there, can it be done? Considering getting a new KTM 2 stroke and want to have it plated.
