Moscow, Idaho — July 30-31, 2004

An event loosely organized by: HMarc and Warchild

Elk River

121 miles, approximately 3 hours

  1. Head east out of Moscow on ID-8 towards Troy.
  2. At Deary, continue on ID-3 to Bovill.
  3. 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 4mb 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...
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
