Moscow, Idaho July 30-31, 2004
An event loosely organized by:
121 miles, approximately 3 hours
- Head east out of Moscow on ID-8 towards Troy.
- At Deary, continue on ID-3 to Bovill.
- Just as you enter Bovill, turn right on ID-8 towards Elk River.
This is a great road, with little traffic. The last couple
miles into Elk River are very twisty [here's a short
quicktime movie of Chuck Hartshorn riding through a couple
corners -- he's since sold the R1100GS and bought an FJR1300].
Have the huckleberry pie
at Huckleberry Heaven
-- trust us, it's to die for. If you
aren't hungry, buy a piece for later...
- After the pie, head back to Deary, but as you reach town turn
left on ID-3 towards Kendrick. The last few miles before Kendrick
offer a nice view of the Potlatch river canyon.
- Continue through Kendrick, and at the south end of town, turn
right on ID-99 and head up the steep, twisty road to Troy. This is
a great bit of road that you can let your bike stretch its legs on.
- At Troy, turn left on ID-8 and head back to Moscow.
On this route, not counting Moscow,
the only reliable fuel is at Deary, at the 3-way
intersection of ID-3 and ID-8. Premium is available, though fortunately
Yamaha recommends unleaded Regular for the FJR1300.
