Thanks to all the organizers & volunteers that made the Boise meet happen.
My brother & I rode our old airheads down from Vancouver Canada. Incredible secondary roads all the way, windstorms, monsoons, lightning, hail, 100+ heat - we had it all. Everyone we met at the event & in the town itself were super friendly. The local BMW shop did a quick tire balance for me - no charge!
Was a bit dissapointed there weren't more vendors, used parts & the like - but what was there was good. Also, finding a cup of coffee at 6:30 AM was a bit of a challenge. Even the Boy Scouts (who made a mean burrito) didn't have their coffee unit prep'd & ready (which seemed to really embarass them given their motto & all). But those were tiny nit picks. Enjoyed the 'Cornering' seminar and especially the excellent ERC course.
Made some new friends, met up with some old ones, had an amazing ride home (including running out of fuel in Nth Ore. due to miscalculation over gallon/liter conversion re high speed fuel burn - coasting down 5 miles of mountain pass, rolling right into a truck stop in the middle of nowhere). Look forward to returning to Idaho with more time to explore Hell's Canyon etc.
Thanks everyone for the hospitality. Ride the summer.
