We are all over here, http://boiseriders.net/ no need to post the same stuff in two places. Are you moving to Boise and you want us to talk you out of it?

I lived in Idaho for 5 or 6 years.

Nice place, straight roads, not much precipitation. Hot and dry during the summer, cold and dry during the winter.

It's a nice place to live. Very clean, good people, and then there are people with a lot of money there.

Overall, the best selection of hot girls that I've ever seen. I'd say the hot to ugly ratio is 1:5, rather than 1:13 for Seattle and 1:20 for Portland.

Like others have said the summers are dry and hot, the winters are cold and mostly dry until we get snow. My wife and I are from Woodburn Oregon and moved to Nampa about 10 years ago, and it took us a few seasons to get used to it. There are some nice twisty roads just outside of town and the speeding tickets are a lot less expensive here then in Oregon.

You forgot to mention that the wimmings in Idaho are a lot more friendly than the ones in either Wash. or Ore.

I would live in Boise in a heart beat if I had a chance. Been there many times to visit and my brother used to live there. So much to like. Got to ride Banks Lowman Rd this last year, and I got to say, it was one of the best roads I've ridden. Ask "Buz" what he thought of that road

I moved to Nampa in 01 and hated every minute I was there. Hot summers, no trees, everyone from there knows everyone from there and everyone that has moved there is a Cali. dickhead trying to edumacate the hillbilly locals. The one bright spot is that the women seem to like the back door lovin more down there for some reason.
