This thread is about Boise area riding and riders, and the club is based in Boise. Perfectly appropriate to discuss it here... if we weren't discussing it here, the meeting last week about reviving the club would not have happened... good thing we're discussing it here.

Good to hear things are clicking along, I staring down the barrel of nearly full schedule between now and the end of June, so as much as I would love to, I am not sure I'll be able to make it to 2013 Challenge meeting/dinner. Any idea when that will be?

If I am lucky I might be in town for the Prairie ride. That is one I always enjoy, and i will be curious to see what the fires have done to that neck of the woods.

Dates for the dinner/meeting have been discussed, but not firmly set, hope to see a firm date in the next couple of weeks, probably around the 3rd week of March?

watch the IAMC website for more info, but the date will appear here also so that the word gets out to as many as possible...

for those of you that did part or all of the 2012 challenge and didn't get your stickers, they are being ordered also... good stuff!!

That's good news that IAMC is falling back into place. Good club, I just wish I was close to one like it.

Looking forward to seeing a good number of you at the Jamboree. Your campsite will be waiting for you.

Idaho Trails Site

Maybe was mentioned somewhere but I just noticed the Idaho Trails site has had a facelift. Seems like a bigger map view and more base layer selections. It's a great resource. I always use it with the Topo base layer. http://trails.idaho.gov/trails/.

Gracias.

I'd really like to run Kirkham this year on the 350. It's one that I've been 'meaning' to ride for years, and just haven't every gotten around to it.

IAMC Forums

Hi gang,

I see that there have been a few posts on motoidaho.com. However, when I click on them all I can see is what appears to be the first post in each, but cannot see any of the replies. I am not able to post a new reply, even though I'm logged in.

I'm assuming that not being able to read replies, or post has something to do with not being a paid member.

Suggestions for consideration (assuming I can't read replies or post because i'm not a paid member):
  1. Make the forums readable without logging in. (like advrider). I've been a long time lurker on advrider. Just reading the posts fueled my decision to buy a bigger bike and do more with the sport.
  2. If you want to keep a section of the forums private, create a members only section. That way it would give non paid folks a chance to interact with paid members. I could see where club members could answer questions from new riders, arrange for riding buddies with non-members, etc. Perhaps that will help with participation on the site.
  3. If you are restricting forum posts to paid members only, change the "you are not allowed to post in the forums" message to something like "Only paid members can post in the members only forums". It would save folks from wondering why they can't post, even if they registered for the site.

Thanks for listening!

Adam

Good to hear your concerns... the club is still working out leadership issues and details about how much membership will be, amount of challenge fees etc, and discussion is on-going about website development and/or changes... it is going to take some time to sort out all these details, but they are being worked on.

We have a 2014 challenge in the works, and should post something in the next few days about a 2013 challenge recognition event and 2014 challenge kick off.

stay tuned... I agree that it would be a good idea to be able to browse the site even if your not a current member... it may be a good way to generate interest and pull in more members and participation...

thanks rick

just letting everyone know about the IAMC annual Dinner and Challenge Recognition... hope to see you there.

I hope this isn't considered spam as most folks that frequent this thread will want this information:

NW Utah / Raft Mountain ORV trails

Hi Boise riders.

On my next ride, I am planning to start in Jarbidge, NV then head east into Idaho and then south into Utah then back into NV and up into Jarbidge.

I am planning to ride over the Raft River Mountains in the Sawtooth National Forest in NW Utah. It appears there are some ORV trails in the area.

I am looking for a map of the trails.

Somewhere I saw a mention of a trail that goes south from Clear Creek to the ridge line of the range. I think it said it was open to motorcycles.

I am also planning to go over the Dove Creek and Grouse Creek Ranges.

Does anyone have any local knowledge about this area?
