    Hey, where are the Idaho riders?

    So I'm moving to Idaho in 2 weeks and I don't see any posting from Idaho riders... what's up with that?
    I'm going to be working at Big Twin BMW in Boise and really looking forward to meeting folks and learning where the good riding is. If there are any Idaho folks on the Forum (besides our President) chime in and help me out if you will.

    Thanks Gary! Time to say good bye to the East Coast and head to to big sky country. That would be Idaho big sky, not Montana. Since I can't be a Dental Floss Tycoon, I'll try to become a spud specialist. And I can still have a Pygmy Pony!

    Welcome to Idaho!

    Hi Steve,
    Just a quick note to let you know that there are indeed riders in ID that read the forum besides our President (my next door neighbor and local corrupting influence). Looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you once you arrive here in Boise. Lots of great riding here in the west that you can discover. A lot depends upon the type of riding that you like to do. Are you a GS rider, twisty mountain roads, wide open high desert with WOT, etc.? We have plenty for each style of rider that can be mixed and matched to your liking. Are you riding out here? If so, which route are you planning to take? ---rick

    Hey Rick, thanks for the welcome.
    We're going to be Uhaulin' out, leaving CT around June 3rd. Plan on I80 across to Salt Lake then up. Going to be my wife and I and our 4 dogs so want to get this trip done.
    I've got a R1150RT waiting out there (my 2nd, love that model) so mountains for now and a GS in the future.
    Looking forward to meeting you and the rest of the riding community!

    Things are looking up. Time to say goodbye to the Northeast and hit the reset button and move on. All is good.
    Gotta head for St Alfonso's now for the pancake breakfast and get me some margarine.

    Moving to Idaho

    Don't get your panties in a wad just yet! You'll meet a whole bunch of people in Boise who will take you in hand and lead you on many fabulous rides that will make you pull out your Connecticut map and kick sand on it! Even if you have to meet our illustrious president (who frequents Big Twin), I guarantee that you'll be welcomed and enjoy all of the BMW riders in the Boise area.

    I am anticipating just that! Folks I have met so far have been great. Last time I was out, it seemed the only grumpy person I could find in the state was me. Just doin' some ground work here.

    Welcome To Tater Country!

    Hi Steve!

    Welcome to Idaho. Big Twin is a great dealership and the folks that work there are really nice. I bring my bike for service there and also stop by to drool on the K 1600GT! There are quite a few BMW riders and also a local BMW club that is pretty active. The riding north of Boise is spectacular (hwy 21 from Lowman to Stanley is magnificent).

    When I stop by Big Twin later this summer I will be sure to say hi!

    Regards,

    Kurt
