Idaho 6 Days
About the ride
This ride is a great mix of trail riding and adventure riding around southern Idaho. Riders will meet in Pine, Idaho and ride for a couple of days there then ride to Jarbridge, NV and back. The ride will include 6.5 days of riding and riders will be staying in motels each night. The ride also includes a luggage van to carry you gear to the motels.
The ride will include tough guy options and easy options, but this ride is for advanced riders only.
Come prepared to go the distance.
The cost to join this 6 day ride is $695. This covers your lodging for the 6 nights during the ride and the cost of a luggage van and driver. This also covers your ride packets which include a custom Garmin GPS Map on a micro SD card and printed ride maps and descriptions.
Sorry the ride is full, but I often get cancellations, so add your name to the Waiting list and you can still possible join.

Note: Riders must make full payment by August 1st, 2020
Riders will receive ride packets in the mail one week before the ride.
Do not sign up for this ride unless you are serious about coming. I take your signup very seriously and start planning for you the minute you sign up. If you need to cancel up to one month prior to the ride start date I will give you a full refund but I will keep $100 to cover the planning work. Sorry but I make non refundable commitments myself so it gets hard for me. "I hate this world of non refundable deals myself." If you need to cancel within one month of the ride I cannot give a refund unless I can find a replacement rider. In the case of finding a replacement rider, I will gladly give you the full refund minus the $100 to cover the planning work. In the event of ride cancellation, you will be given a full refund.

OK since many of you like to study more detail about the ride, below are the ride maps.
I put these ride maps on the web page because I know a few of you love looking at the ride detail and dreaming about the ride. At first glance these maps do not look so impressive, but they are way cool. If you start zooming in, you can see the ride in incredible detail. I have spent a ton of hours sorting through the details of the ride for each day, so for those of you that enjoy this sort of thing, well enjoy!

How does the ride navigation work?
This is a self-led GPS ride; all riding is on your own. You are responsible for your own riding. You will be given a GPS map file and instructions on how to use your Garmin GPS unit. People will hook up in small groups of less than 6 riders and tend to ride together. You are not encouraged to ride alone. You are responsible for your own riding and yourself.

Are you right for this ride?
When something goes wrong on a ride, would your riding friends say that you are more likely to need help or more likely to give help? You should be in the more likely to offer help camp. This ride is filled with riders that are more likely to give help, so most of the time the riders never need help. Additionally there is all the normal stuff, come prepared to maintain your bike, fix your bike on the trail, repair flat tires, deal with bad weather and rain and make a joke or two.
How do I make the GPS stuff so easy?
I develop very high quality ride maps custom for our ride. They come from much of what I and others have ridden. I take the best from all my rides and make new ones.

Note from me, gpsKevin
My goal for this ride is simple: great riding. You can count on great routes and places to ride.
But in addition, the ride is about discovering new places, meeting new friends, seeing new parts of the world.
Q: Would this be a good ride for new riders?
A: No, this ride is for intermediate and experienced riders only. The riding has easy route choices and tough route options. Each evening we will study the following day's choices. You will find lots of supportive people at the ride.
Q: What are Motel room arrangements?
A: Rooms are double occupancy, meaning each rider shares a two bed room with another rider.
Q: What bikes are right for this ride?
A: Dual Sport bikes only
Q; What do I do if I don't have a Garmin GPS?
A: Buy one, you need it, we will show you how to use it. You can get a great one for under $200 bucks. ( See gpsKevin's gps recommendations)
Q: Is the riding really on my own?
A: Yes, but almost everyone hooks up and rides with a friend, or a new friend or me.
Q: What gas mileage range should I have for this ride?
A: I recommend a range of 140 miles that is enough even when normal obstacles are encountered.
