Glad to hear your bike is back and better than ever!

You bet! I'd love to go riding with you! I'm riding up to the Lewis and Clark Rally this week and then I'm out of town for work the following week but let me know when you want to go... even for a short run up in the Boise foothills!

Thanks Steve! I'd love to have that rack in the store! Click the link in my signature and "like" us on FB. You can stay up to date on the schedule over there. I'm going to make a few replies here, and then stop the spam in this thread. I know they frown on this sort of thing. Pimping my stuff, etc...

Thanks for the recommendation Bill! Bummer about the job. Sorry to hear that. I already have my first employee lined up though. Many of you know him. Tom Tolle is going to work with me full time. But, if I grow as fast as I think I will, I'll be needing to add a third shortly. Follow on FB to find out where we will be located.






Ok, I'm done with the . My last plea and we can get back to the riding in Boise. Click my sig and "like us" on Facebook. Once you do that, you will get all the updates as I get closer to opening. Also, I have an advertising campaign set to run in both the Idaho Statesman and the Boise Weekly. Keep an eye out for our ads. I'll also be posting on Craigslist in several different sections. Keep your fingers crossed for me as I hope to ink the deal tomorrow for my property! Ok. Now I'm done. Contact me through Facebook or via PM so I don't get in trouble and clog this thread. Once again, I hope to see you all in the store! Thanks!

Hey, does anybody know where I can find a bigger bike to rent for the weekend, or maybe even a long day. you know like a GS, KTM 990, or something like that. The ol wifey is gettin a bit jealous of the weekend trips and thinks she may want to go but has no interest in riding her own. I really don't want to go to Salt Lake to rent one and I don't want to rent a wee 650 from birds of prey, I want her to be comfy. Sort of a try before I buy, but more than a dealer test ride.

Thanks
Steve

You should rent a Harley. You would look good dressed up like a pirate.

Boise, Idaho to Maupin, Oregon this weekend?

Are there any Airheads in Boise who are planning on going to the 10th Fire Flight Rendezvous in Maupin, Or? I'm heading over and would welcome the chance to ride with others. I plan to leave Friday AM.

Or must it be the German variety? Ahhhh the inlaws are coming Monday and the wife will have me shopping and cleaning all weekend so I couldn't go anyways. To make things worse my riding will be very restricted over the next 2 weeks just as the weather is getting great.

Have a good trip.

Welcome back to the grid, Sam. Hope to see you in the store! Maybe one of these summers we'll actually have some time to sit around a campfire!
