.... Are those trails motorized? Looking at the map everything north of Tripod Peak is classified as "2" ..... Non-motorized?

Good luck, hope you can retrieve your bike without anymore problems. Nice photos. I'm going to put some JB weld in my tool kit now.

The trail I was on is motorized.
I got the bike out yesterday, I will post some pictures of the recovery later.

I noticed the same thing on some trails in the Payette National Forest. That website shows a trail as non-motorized but the 2013 MVUM shows it as motorized. Don't trust that site to show accurate info.

The signs up there only said that 137 was non-motorized, which is shown as motorized on the IDPR site. So I don't know whether it is motorized or not.

It had me curious becuase it's not an area known for trail access/riding etc. I know they have had issues with the ATV's further west......IDPR/USFS Map/MVUM appear to be consistent with each other, but signs on the ground could be another story?

Since we had to go back up there to get my bike we decided to float the Cabarton stretch of the NF Payette while we were in the area. So we headed up there Saturday after the rodeo with the raft and the dogs all loaded up. We camped near the FAA radar site looking over the headwaters of Squaw Cr. It is a beautiful spot and we were treated to a great sunset and moonrise.





This is the rescue team. My wife and uncle and our pack of dogs helped get the bike up to a piece of flat ground.






This the patch, I used JB Steelstick. It seems to be holding well.


After I got out to the road I rode up to take a picture of the radar site for the challenge. As I was taking this photo I heard the hisssss of my front tire going flat so we had to load the bike up in the back of the truck for the ride home.


Having a little breakfast after getting back to the truck




We ended up having a great weekend and everything worked out well in the end.

It has the factory skid plate on it which was obviously insufficient.
This was only the second time I have ever ridden single track in my life so I wasn't as prepared as I will be next time, live and learn I guess.

The adventure begins when things stop going as planned....

I don't do much planning so its always an adventure.

Cool story and good pics. I like the dogs.
A few tips that might help you on terrain like that:

- Lose the tank bag. You need to be able to put your body in that space some of the time.
- Get rid of the gas can on the rack. If you need to carry extra gas, look for a bigger tank, or a way to carry that weight lower down, on the side of the bike.
- Get some offroad tires. The difference is night and day; they will make you more confident offroad, and you'll be less exhausted at the end of the day.

To be honest I had no intention of being in terrain like that, I just kept going instead of turning around when it got bad.
Better tires and lower gearing would have certainly helped a lot, some skill wouldn't have hurt either.
