Yes, we will have to do that. I definitely think the Tiger is going to be a little faster from what I have read. I almost put my deposit down on a Tiger last year, then held off due to my job for a while. By the time things had settled down Big Twin dumped Triumph and that kind of changed my mind. Anyway.... look me up when you get back from Colorado. I have read your reports, it would nice to get a chance to meet and ride.

Take Care!

For sure! That was almost a deal killer for me. I had my deposit down at Big Twin and got the call sayin I couldn't get a bike there. The Triumph dealer here in Denver made some calls and promised there would be a dealer in Boise. Still waiting.... Oh well. It's been perfect for 2000 miles so far. It'll be nice to meet ya when I get home!

You would've had to carry your bikes on friday-we barely stomped out a path saturday afternoon.
We ride this a few times each summer.Our normal route is Trail cr,Copper basin,Antelope,Bear cr summit,Fish cr,Barton rd to Little Wood,Muldoon to Bellevue.We used to rideup Hailey cr to Baugh cr to Cove cr & back home to Triumph-but the landowner has closed the road.
I'd ride it before the sheep get in there if you want to see and smell the flowers.

thanks again, you guys are great!

Thanks again for all your help so far, but, once again the plan has changed and it looks like I will be attending the V-Strom rally in Boise this weekend afterall. Can I ask you guys what you think about this route for a day loop out of Meridian?

----> http://ridewithgps.com/routes/539342 <-----

I know its a ton of miles for a day loop, 490 to be exact, but I'm only in Boise for a few days and this seems like one hell of a great adventure ride! I'd really have to lay the wood to those sections of slab, but does anyone out think this is at least do-able on big bike in say, 12 hrs?

Thanks again guys

May be doable, but man that is a haul... you may be over 12 hours depending on stops. No dilly dallying on this one. Beautiful country though. Good luck and have fun.

FYI....

Trinity Mountain access road closed
Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Mountain Home News

The U.S. Forest Service Mountain Home District Ranger has issued an immediate temporary emergency closure to restrict all motorized access to a portion of Forest Road 129, which is the primary route to the Trinity Mountain Recreation Area.
The section closed is from Milepost 8.4 to 15.7 and includes all spur roads. The closure will minimize road damage and protect other resources due to wet thaw conditions.

Closures of this high elevation road typically end by now, but snow drifts are still blocking the road due to the heavy winter snow pack and cool spring. It is anticipated the closure may remain in place until July 25. Currently, three to four feet of snow remain in some of the campground areas.

"This closure will temporarily delay access into the Trinity Mountain Recreation area, which is a popular high mountain recreational area," said District Ranger Stephaney Church. "The closure extension is needed due to the substantial amount of snow still within the area."

The temporary, emergency restrictions will be enforced by Forest Service law enforcement officers. Primary access routes and area trailheads are signed with a closure order.

"The key ingredient to protect the road is user compliance, and the public's cooperation is appreciated until the snow melts and the road dries," said Church.

Nope. Still closed. Most are 'guessing' around the first week in Aug. Still lots of snow on the MT side.

With all the snow, and a later opening, maybe it won't catch fire this summer/fall.
