2018 tour of idaho, TOI


(Frany) #1

Round 2. This will be the year. August, dates to be confirmed. Anyone interested? Im going even if its solo.

Tentatively thinking of leaving Aug 10/11. Return whenever I finish.

To far away to tell. Hey mods, this frany chick doesn’t have they’re real name listed.

Im kind of hoping you dont come so i can borrow your large tank. And comfy saddle.


(Bryon Enns) #4

Can we stop in Colorado on the way home? I wanna ride the X-roads DS after the 9 days of TOI to make sure I come home tired.

Who is navigating, and by what method?


(Clayton James William Walker) #6

Look at a map Colorado is past idaho


(Bryon Enns) #7

We’ll carry spot trackers so 'rambler can navigate from the cloud & text us turn info in real time. I think that’s what TOI dude Martin says has to happen.


(Clayton James William Walker) #8

I just checked and it’s actually closer to do the Colorado ride than the Yukon Hare Scramble. I mean maybe after Colorado we do the Yukon.

This is an improvement but I still sense some negativity in this post…

I got the TOI in the calendar but this is messing with the the annual Kamloops Loose Screw DS ride.

Jimmy Lewis posted a 45 minute Tour of Idaho video over at dirtbiketest.com. I haven’t watched it yet but typically like his articles & reviews.

(Bryon Enns) #14

Man, you gotta be a pretty hard core rider to get banned from the TOI facebook page!

Good luck Lev! Let me know if ya wanna borrow the big girl 690. LOL

We should phone him every hour on the hour tomorrow afternoon/evening to make sure he don’t fall asleeeep at the wheeeel.


(Clayton James William Walker) #16

I’m not sure if it works that way.


(Arthur Pappas) #17

Anyone heard from @franhoser? I trod calling him on Friday evening but no answer. Maybe he was already passed out. Looks like he in the Pocatello area.


(Clayton James William Walker) #18

Nope. We were too busy fording mudslides.


(Arthur Pappas) #19

He’s in Smiley Creek tonight. Musta been another long day in the saddle.

@franhoser still in Smiley Creek, hasn’t moved since yesterday evening. Tried calling him today but his phone goes straight to vm. No response to text messages either.

Has anyone talked to him today or yesterday?
