          Update... FYI. The entire hwy 12 stretch was not redone. Only about 50 miles of it. My brother in law took a ride up to lochsa lodge 3 weeks ago and told me the road was so badly plagued with frost heaves it was unbearable in his SUV..turns out that the snow fall in February really did a number on that road...I haven’t been up there for about 3 years now and couldn’t give you guys a first hand review but I thought it would be wrong of me not to say anything. Especially since half the crew was coming from some pretty great distances. I’m really sorry to be the bearer of bad news here.

          just got off the phone with my mom, she said the road didn’t start getting bad till around or just before Powell. She said the road was “like going over endless railroad tracks” can’t imagine what that would be like on a bike.

                  As soon as the weather is good enough through Lolo pass I'm going to check it out. I'm only a couple of hours from Lolo. I'll report back and then we can decide if we need to change plans for that day's ride.

                      The weather is looking great for tomorrow and Saturday. Rain tomorrow night, but i booked a cabin at Lolo Hotsprings. I'm looking forward to the ride and some alone time. First of the season. It's been a f'n long winter.

                      I'll have a road report for Lolo Highway this weekend.

                        The weather forecast shifted to 90% chance of rain tomorrow. I'll have to try again later. Bummer.

                              I've been trying for the past three weeks, but the weather keeps turning on Friday and Saturday. Over the weekend it freaking snowed!

                              But I think it's going to happen this coming weekend. Forecast is for low-mid 60's Fri and Sat and 0% precipitation. Fingers x'd.

                                It's finally going to happen. The weather is looking great this weekend. I'm riding over to Lolo on Saturday and getting a cabin. I'll report back on the highway condition.

                                  I'm heading over to Lolo tomorrow and this showed up on my Facebook timeline, from 7 years ago from today. Doesn't feel like it's been that long.

                                      263 miles so far today. I’m sipping a beer and waiting for my pizza in Kamiah ID.

                                      I’m happy to report the highway is in great shape! Very few rough spots that were easy to avoid. Most of it was on the centerline between lanes. I’m typically running 10-15 mph over the speed limit. No problem. It’s so nice I might ride it twice! I don’t have any place to be tomorrow, so why not.

                                      I need to do this more often. Lolo is only 100 miles from my house. One of the best rides in the country and it’s in my backyard.

                                      I’m taking video and pics. I’ll post some teasers when I get home.

                                        Forgot to mention my little mishap. Somewhere between home and Missoula I lost my kickstand spring. I didn’t realize it until the gas station. It was dragging on left turns. Luckily there’s a shop on the way to Lolo. They were able to find a spring that fit. $5.42 and they installed it for free!

                                          Wow, last time I lost a kickstand spring it wanted to catapult me when I made a left turn. I thought, why doesn't it just fold up?
