    And for those that want a picture of the road, here's my brother climbing the pass in front of me on his 98 Valk. And no, he didn't pass me. I let him lead sometimes.

    With this string showing up here I had to go out and get my bike's picture with the sign, actually I had to get both signs.:D
    This is the sign just East of Lowell, ID.

    For the ride report and pictures of the road see this string: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=273707

    Ms Chiff in her ride report 6 weeks on a 250 suggested that there be an ADV ride at Lochsa Lodge, she has a mighty fine idea there.

    Washboards are a hoot on that bike:lol3

    Better bike for a 2 day, 950 mile jaunt around the state than my KLR. Have to head back up there on the KLR when I have more time to do the Lolo Motorway properly.

    Only my 3rd ADV post. I rode LOLO this year coming back from Westoc and 12 was a highlight for my trip. What was wierd was the ash from the forest fires in MT. that was drifting west.

    The wierd angle is due to the fact that a fisherman had parked his Toyota right under the sign and I had to shoot it like this to sorta keep him out of the shot. He sated that about 5 bikes had stopped in the last few hours and taken pictures and he did not know why....I told him the sign was sorta like an icon for riders and he then said Oh, and took a picturew of his car and fishing gear for his buddies. So don't be suprised if the sign starts showing up on fishing sites too.

    Fun thread! But some accommodating advrider needs to put a few bullet holes in them to make 'em official-like.:D

    Hey youse ADV riders. Hwy 12 is great but above this is the Lolo Motorway, running 73 miles offroad through the most beautiful mountains and forest. Part of the Lewis and Clark trail, it was built as the first road you could "motor" on through the mountains. There's almost no vehicles at all on it now, just the odd horse and maybe one or two cars across the whole distance. This pic doesbn't do it justice and neither can my words. There's a great PDF file you can download. Just put Lolo Motorway into your browser. Ride it.
