    Here's an open invitation for Truelight and Admiral's next adventure. Truelight (and me too) is itchin to get a fall ride in and see the color's. Truelight came up with the route and we agreed to a date (weather dependent).



    We will post our completed ride report in this thread in the week following our ride, should we survive.



    Who: Truelight, Admiral and anyone else who wants to join.



    What: Another TW200 Dual-Sport Adventure Ride. All others welcome, as long as you don't ride faster than we do!





    Where: Meet/Start/Finish-Spring Shores Marina (Lucky Peak Reservoir). Up M. Fork Boise River, cross over to N. Fork Boise River, head to Idaho City on Rabbit Crk Rd; head to Thorn Crk Butte L.O.; then back to Start/Finsh.



    Edit: 15 Oct. When: Wednesday, 18 Oct, 0900. Changed date from 19th to 18th.





    Why: Cause it ain't winter yet.



    Here's an overview map.

    This is why I ride with Admiral... (besides the fact that he's a nice guy and goes slow enough I can keep up...)... ....Because he's a meticulous planner and has yet to get me lost, even on the often confusing backcountry Idaho forest service and logging roads. Look at the beautiful map! I gave him a rough idea of where I'd like to go and he came up with this.



    Now... I want to recall we have a few other Idaho riders, maybe even a couple in the Boise area, no? Come join us! This is going to be a really nice ride.

    Getting lost is just part of the adventure..sometimes you find the best trails while your lost. Turn the lights out and try navigating back on a trail you've been on 10 times before..its a little challenging.

    Well, I think the three of us (Heyduke, Truelight, and me), will agree we had a good ride. Pretty darn chilly to start the day. I had frost on my truck windshield as I left the house. Didn't warm up much by the time we got to the start/finish area.



    It was a long day of riding, 118 in all, but the only way to make it shorter was to stop short and retrace our route. Our route was mostly a loop with no available shortcut, and we had just a little riding on the same part near the reservoirs at the beginning and end.



    About half way through, we took a short detour to Idaho City so Truelight and Heyduke could refuel, just to be safe. After leaving Idaho City and heading toward Thorn Creek Butte Lookout, I really began to doubt my navigational skills and wondered if I had taken the wrong turn. About 3/4 of the way to the lookout, we saw it. I told truelight "want to tell you something, but want to wait until we get to the lookout". When we arrived, I told him I thought we were lost as I couldn't remember the route up. But in the end I got it right, but I was worried for a while.



    Anyway, here is my version of events. Enjoy!







    Adding a couple photo's. Some are in the video, couple are not.

    Fun!!! That's my kind of riding, too - in the dirt. Watching your video is the next best thing to being there. Thanks for taking us along.

    I've been really busy with other projects lately so it will be a bit before I can add my pics and such, but I'd add that it was a beautiful ride in some gorgeous Idaho backcountry that was awash in autumn color. As great a job as Admiral does with his video, still and ride reports, it's hard to capture here how nice it is to get out in the woods this time of year. A good ride with some great company... ya just can't beat it.



    I'll add my pics and more when I get a chance.
