Daxm, where's this said picture of carnage?

here's mine... I tried to get in there with Dax... he made it farther than I did..., I might try again with a stripped down bike...


Dax got farther... but same result.

we still had a long way to go this day to pickup Trinity LO and Rocky Bar sites... so we gave it up and went into Ketchum for some lunch!! then over Dollarhide and points West.

Not so much "carnage" as I got too pooped to continue and I was stalling out (and having a hard time getting started again).

Looking downhill:


And then uphill:

Yup that is definitely small bike country. If that's a road, there's not much left of it.

I just finished watching ALL 16 of your videos. Man, you have sure drawn a line in the sand for me! Now that I know (and have seen) a gs1200 get up there I *must* do it! (No one said I ain't crazy.)

One comment: I love your videos BUT I'd prefer if they were more like 5 min each. Just as I'm getting into what you are doing the video ends. :-(

Yea that part of the country is closed right now, fires and such. I wonder what the smoke situation is up there right now?

This would be the toughest off road I will have done on the big GSA.

The route we took went through Featherville to the South Fork, a direction now closed for the Trinity Ridge fire.

Question Bosserman update?

Thank you for your support, the Bosserman family and the Boise Ridge Riders are grateful.
It's been a long while but thought to ping this after I tripped over the news of Bob's son's misfortune and that the dealership is no longer KTM, or no longer in business? I'd be interested in how they are doing. I met Bob in 1996 in some itteration of his shops, while on a biz trip to Boise. Here I sit home in NY as I write this, my wife and older son are in Boise just for fun (I had to stay behind), got me thinking about having her track the shop and Bob down.

Any comments/info?
