Great to see difficult off road riding over night trips .

Sadly there's not enough real off road riding adventures posted it seems. Good on you for the ride. Looks fantastic terrain and some of those loose rocky uphills hurt just watching it on video.

Thanks for posting.

Let your wife come and "rescue" you... that's not so tops, wouldn't allow that, I'd walk home first!

Hope to see more of your work!

Oh yeah, one other thing... what's the handgun for? Does it assist with faster tube changes



The handgun was a "just in case" measure...mostly for Bears. If they decide to venture in, a shot in the air was hoped to detur them!

Didn't really help with the tube change, maybe we should have tried that!

Also about the wife coming to get me...nothing could be more embarrassing than calling search and rescue for more gas. Once you have stooped to that level, there is really nowhere else to go. Calling my wife to save me from a 4 hour pavement ride on an off-road dirt bike was definately a step up!

I WOULD RANK THIS AS ONE OF THE BEST REPORTS ON HERE, AMAZING TRAIL RIDING AND SCENERY. JUST BEING A FEW HUNDRED MILES FORM THIS AREA MAKES ME REALLY WANT TO GET OUT THERE NEXT SUMMER/FALL. THANKS FOR THE RR.

I trying to read this report on a dial up connection, so most of the pics aren't loading for me, but from what I've seen, I'm headed up there, for sure! this is just the type of riding I'm looking for! For you guys that live a few hours, or a day away, what are you waiting for? (the snow to leave, ok, I'll take that!)

Great report and pics. Idaho is awesome. I've been twice. First it was in the Stanley Basin area/Chemeketan campground. Second time was Skeleton Creek area.

Do not be fooled. There is no good riding in Idaho. The whole state is desert and looks like this:




Great report. Thank you for sharing.

Just had the chance read your report, very nice!

I ride most of the trails that you were on all summer.

I have rode the Big Elk and Bear creek area, the trails on Big Elk are very confusing and not used much but that is the best part. It has taken many trips through there to learn that area. Once you know the trails it's some of the best single track around. In places the trails do vanish but if you look around a bit your will find it again. These trails can be very difficult.

If you ever want to come back up and ride it I would be happy to show you around.

I have talked to quite a few folks in the area about some help. I am planning on doing the ride again in July. Sometime before that I would love to ride through again. Lets try and hook up when the snow melts and go for a ride.

I actually rode some stuff just outside of Smoot, WY a few months ago. Do you ride over there as well?

I have not done any riding in Smoot.

I'll send you a pm with my contact info.

Riding Bear creek before July can be hazardous to your bikes health. On a ride in June It started to rain at about 10:00 AM and by 9:00 pm on are way out the creek had come up 1 1/2 ft. By 6:00 am the next morning It was unridable when we went back to get a friend that had to spend the night because he to run to of fuel.( He was on a two stroke and had no oil). We found a hunting camp with tent food water and propane heater sleeping bag, I think he had a better night than I had riding out. In the morning It toke three people to one bike to cross the creek crossings it was nut deep and you could hardly stand up.
