The plan is to depart from the Chevron station at Gowen and I-84. The depart time will be 6 a.m. to avoid riding late into the evening.
It is all freeway riding on the first day but it is pretty nice scenery once we get past Idaho Falls. I have done this twice before but not on a touring bike.
We might even find Wayne Dzuback out there somewhere.
The route is Boise - Twin Falls - Idaho Falls - Missoula - Kellogg - Coeur d' Alene - Spokane - Ritzville - Tri-Cities - Pendleton.
It should take 15 to 17 hours with 10 minute gas stops and 30 meal breaks.
The night will be spent in Pendleton with a nice, serene ride back to Boise on the backroads of the Blue Mountains.
I know this seems like short notice but it sorta isn't as I have brought up this ride several times since the turn of the year in January (or maybe earlier).
No pressure or "sweat" about going but it could be fun...especially for those members that might think we don't ride enough miles on our OGRES MC sanctioned Runs.
