Sounds interesting, would cause me to ride an extra 120 miles to get it though. Will have to see how I'm progressing with the ride.

Full Idaho Route starting with my last stop in MT

Idaho Route with Thompson Pass

Might be a bit better if my bike was faster and could handle the interstates.

Will do. The kit I won is for a water cooled CRF450X, so I still have to acquire the proper temp sensor, but according to what I've read on Trail Tech's site everything else I should get to work.

I'll probably wire up my own version of the Dashboard though.

There is another way....

I don't have the time to look into it right now, and Google Maps barely let me change your route onto FS roads, but there is a shortcut from Rt 200 in ID from Clark Fork that takes very manageable gravel routes around the south side of Lake Pend Oreille to Athol, ID. I may not have the simplest route mapped, but it might be worth looking into. It is a scenic route that goes south of the lake; make sure to take a few minutes to take one of the roads in to see the lake. It's a beauty.

Another option....

I think you're crazy, by the way.

XR: Yeah Google maps can be a pain with its dropping of vias during recalculation. I like the route you suggested and I was able to find fuel stops within the bike's range. Thanks!

Awesome.

KE100's are bad ass little scoots. I could use a second one for my stable.

When will you be traveling in July? We have a major ride that will be traveling the Troy, Yaak, Polebridge, Glacier section the end of the July (West to East). You can check the routes for this part here: http://bom2014.blogspot.com/

The stretch from Polebridge to Eureka is very remote. Be prepared.

I ride out on July 11th and hope to be in Bow, WA by the 19th.

That sounds like a fun ride. Too bad I'll miss it heading West and East as we're planning on being home the 26th or 27th.

I'll be carrying food, water, a water purifier, bear spray, etc. Hopefully won't need any of it.

You might want to carry a couple extra top ends as well.

I'm adding a Trail Tech Vapor with cylinder head temperature sensor to the bike. Pretty confident I won't cook my engine.
