      What Hot Tub in Spray? LOL

  • I am checking out! Hit the road 6:30 in the am tomorrow. See you in Konkolville or be square. P.S. I have the Tequila but I think I'm to old to do another week-end like that so soon. I think Jay might be to old as well

        There's a station at Lochsa Lodge. About 45 miles from Lolo. After that the next one is another 87 miles to Kooskia.

                            • We all had a great time. 20x total riders. Tons of River canyon sweepers and twisties. Lots of camaraderie and b*******! Lyndon had a flat on the front yesterday about 40 miles from the motel but we got it fixed today and he is on his way back home. He decided not to follow me to the Pacific coast. He'll save that for another day. Everybody else left today and I'm in my hotel room taking a break and we'll leave in the morning. We have tentative plans for the next two years for the Northwest star fest.

                              • What might those plans be, I'm going to do every thing I can to attend. Wife and I rode 264 miles today, had a great ride, awesome weather!

                                  Randy, we had a quorum of the road Star members at our parking lot meeting. We decided it would be at your house next year. Then hopefully extreme northern California the year after if we can get some suggestions from members here.

                                  LOL Steve, I haven't even been able to make the last two Star Fest meetings, what would ever possess you to think I would would be able to do a host!!

                              • I made it home, 480 something miles, for a total of 1622 miles, 31 hours in the saddle, 52 MPH average, 92 mph max. The Columbia gorge was damned windy and was getting blown around pretty good. The closer to Portland I got, there were more serious assholes in cages. Jealousy mostly since I could get through traffic having to pass on the right. Freaking left lane liberals!

                                What a fantastic weekend though, the riding was epic, some seriously great roads with great food spots! The Lolo pass area offers not only great riding but seriously friendly, welcoming and helpful residents! A big shout out to Ray and his wife, the owners of the Konkolville Motel, a truly biker friendly hotel with comfortable beds and a great steak dinner deal! If you were there please send some positive reviews on social media, google, yelp, tripadvisor or whatever. I have a few pictures to post but I'm exhausted and my ass is seriously sore! Time for a couple good pain pills and sleep in tomorrow!

                                  Sounds like a great trip! Always good to hear when these meetups result in such great experiences.

                                  Sounds like a great time!! Sorry I missed it! Currently in Moab Utah for the night heading to the four corners monument tomorrow! Supposed to be 107 degrees tomorrow!!

                              • On the way home I caught up with Duke and Mike in Lolo. We had a great lunch and then we were on our way. Thunderstorms were barking when we were in the parking lot. I chased a storm out of Missoula. I stopped on the interstate for a few minutes to let some rain finish off, but other than that I just had some wet pavement. I got home around 4, unpacked, then took a nap.

                                Here's some video. About 1.5 hours of unedited twisties. My camera is mounted to the bars. That perspective loses some of the speed for ride. Everyone agreed that the video seems a lot slower than the actual ride. Generally we were 15-25 over the corners' posted limit. Keep that in mind when you see the limit signs.

                                Hwy 12 along the Clearwater River south of Orofino Idaho




                                Coming down Harris Ridge Road East of Kooskia Idaho.




                                Coming down Mt. Idaho Grade Road then onto Hwy 14 up to Elk City

                                • Great vids Darrel. I embarrassed myself at least twice coming home. When coming into Lewiston, ID, I passed a string of cars that were doing about 60 only to get sandwiched between them and an oncoming semi. Even though I had enough room, the first car freaked and swerved to his right. Then while turning left at the junction after Washtucna, WA, I looked both ways, saw cars in both directions and mistakenly proceeded to turn left into an oncoming car doing 60. I stopped and he freaked out, pulling around me. Had pounding rain from the top of Snoqualmie Pass west for about 30 minutes. Don’t get too relaxed y’all!
