I've got a WRR pulling the Moto-Mule trailer. In it's steerer tube, I used a boat drain plug to make a humidor. Not sure when (bumps or tight turn) but I saw the latch open on the box so I plan to double up with a strap or second latch pin. Didn't lose any gear thankfully.

FWIW Here's the weekend fun: https://picasaweb.google.com/chrissp...eat=directlink

Have a great trip!!
Looks like you had a great time!

I have been trying to come up with a better idea for pins on the lid closures... it will for sure be tested on this trip.... definitely...

Well the laptop didn't fit so updates will be sparse.
Made Hood river the back way over Lolo pass. Great night with friends.

Really nice ride

Mr. Fisherman,

I'm in too !!!!!!
I'm lovin' how you have set up your bike and trailer to work for you.

I'm sure I don't have to tell you how nice this trip is going to be for you since you can
be out for so long and not have to worry about making time---or destinations.

You've got a real good head on your shoulders and I can feel your excitement.

Me and Dingweeds will be up that way I bet later this year----we've been talking what we'll do next and
The PNW (Pacific Northwest) gets the nod again.
We'll be on itty bitty girls bikes.
Me and Dingweeds both have right at 35,000 miles on our WR's-----and they run like new.

I envy all you guys living up there.

I'll be hanging on every word of where you go----I have lot's of options already---but would be nice to
have some more.

BigDog

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Looking forward to your review of the moto-mule. I'm looking for an excuse to attach one to my WR

Bear69 is a friend from work. I was letting him ride my KLR, Fugly. He noticed evidence of a little blowby at the base gasket ... wound up overtorquing the head bolts. Trucked the bike back home and swapped it for the GS. Back on the road staying with SFSpeedster in Pendelton.

Rode to Lewiston yesterday through VERY strong gusting winds. My Lynx fairing really helped to keep my helmet on my head.
I got a late start and opted to slab it with the weather like it was. Only made 65 uphill into the wind. Passed a truck just before rattlesnake grade. Had so much fun i think I scraped the edge of the trailer. That was exciting.

Intended to check out historic Lolo motorway but it is impassable due to snow and blowdown trees. I am sure glad I'm not in the middle of it during this storm.

Decided to wait out this storm and head out tomorrow.

I am looking at alternative routes. As fun as 12 is that's not what i am here for.

The Tour Of Idaho T2 routes stay in southern Idaho-----might be do-able for you now ????
They go West to East---or visa-versa.
I got all those tracks but don't have a clue how you'd get them in your gps.

T2 has more than one route across---some easy---some hard in spots---goes all the way across the state and is
super scenic.

Starts in Jordan Valley Oregon---and goes Southwest and ends up in Alpine, Wyoming----both towns right on the Idaho borders.

Thanks Mark, I am familiar with the route, but without my laptop I am at a disadvantage. Not to worry, I have paper maps, spare gas and a couple quarters I can flip to help me decide

I think I'll set up camp near Lolo somewhere and explore that area for a day or two on my way to visit my brother and his family near Darby.

The East side of Historic Lolo Motorway are reported to be the best part anyway... I am here... Might as well see what I can, but know this. I will be back. I have the time and the sun and weather are on my side.

I'll check into the ranger station on the East end of Magruder then likely work my way towards Panther Creek.

East side suggestions. South from Lolo Pass visitors center, come back to on US12 at Elk Meadows road (could hit snow). Also, Graves Ck road, one mile to Lumberjack Saloon - great burgers - continue up the road and take the Wagon Road at the top play around (back to Lolo Hotsprings or Pass) or continue over to I90 at Petty Ck.

Thanks for the suggestions. Elk Meadows road was already part of the plan. I look forward to trying the burger.
