    does anyone ever post in the Boise region? seems like just crickets chirping here. i think there's one guy with a bike but he lives in Nampa so he feels like he's not allowed to post until Beans sets up a Nampa Region then it will be crazy posting going on!
     
  2. Where's Boise? :mrgreen:

    Eggsactly. Seems like the only ones posting don' even live in potatoland. I guess all the southern idaho boys are out working the fields getting ready for the winter. Either that or they don't have internet yet. :fallinga:

    Were out riding in the beautiful weather instead of sitting in front of our computers! :nana

    There are a couple of local forums that get a bunch of action. BRN seems to be the most popular. http://www.boiseriders.net/forums/index.php

    wazzu mille, Nice to see another Ape member. I have a '01 Falco and '00.5 RSVR. Love the '04, but it just doesn't fit me as well.

    that's alright, the damn thing doesn't fit me either! i guess all i can do is carry around a milk crate strapped to the back and us it to get on and off! you wouldn't think there would be a big difference between the 04's and to first gen bikes. didn't have issues with the 2000. this new one is quite tall.

    I've got no problem with the height. I'm 6'2" and the '04 I rode was so cramped I thought I was going to bust a seam. The Falco fits me perfect. I've done 600 mile days on it and it feels great. The Mille is good for around town or doing the Lowman loop. I'm taking it down to MMP next weekend. Now that's it's true calling :)

    haha, i guess you're on the opposite end of the spectrum. yeah, i'm 5'6" and i don't think any bike is cramped for me. even a pocketbike is huge for me crackup:
     
  9. You guys doing OK over there?
     
  10. You mean relative to you guys over there or OK in terms of how we define it over here? Well, we rarely get electricity but we all burn coal, wood or wood products for cookin' and blacksmithin'. That's the biggest reason we don't post much. When the power does come on, we all gather 'round the radio for news on how that Viet Nam war is going. By the time we get through the news and the farm report, there isn't much time to turn the computer on. Don't really know why Wazzu Mille sent me one, we cain't hardly use em down here. Kids are growin like weeds though. Good thing cuz harvest this year was brutal and they can help with the cannin' and picklin'. Hogs are doing good but we're gonna need a new milk cow. Old man Carter down the road has a couple, says if we do all the milkin, he'll split it with us. Kids are fine with waking up a 4:30 to do the extra morning chores. We'll make ice cream this weekend - huckleberry - picked the last of 'em this weekend while huntin. Scored a dozen squirrel, but no elk. Wolves have driven em all off. Wolves are thick now. Funny thing happens when you introduce living things into an area with no natural predators - they breed like crazy and make a nuisance of themselves like kill all the large herbivores or live atop one another in high rise buildings. I s'pose when they run out of food and space, they'll turn on each other and it'll balance out. I hear there's an election coming up. Guess I'll have to hitch up the mule and head over to the county seat to cast my vote. Wife tells me she can vote this time. I hafta believe her, I cain't read and she has a newspaper clippin' to prove it.

    So all in all, we're doing OK here as we always do. It would suck for us to be there though, which is why we're here and not there.

    BTW, I don't hunt or farm or make ice cream. Well, if you understand making ice cream to mean freezing a custard base into a delicious frozen treat. I do like to respond to post whores as sport on occasion when they wander into this isolated corner of PNWRiders-dot-com. It's kind of like virtual Deliverance, Ned.

    Y'all come back now, ya hear...

  11. Well its is nice to see from your loneliness and lack of outside influences that you have managed to hold onto some form of a sense of humor. :mrgreen:
     
  12. I escaped from Boise (not Boyzee, for you hip hop posers). Although I do visit there on occasion. Thank you, family, for continuing to drag me back to the high desert region again...and again...
    Fortunately Hwy 55 and the mountains are not too far off once you get past the hills and Horseshoe Bend.

  15. Lack of outside influences - that there is high falutin' city talk for inbreedin', ain't it? Damn you, damn you all with your store bought clothes and your convenient snack foods and your mouth full o' teeth and your multi branched family trees and your hoity toity public schoolin'. Betcha cocky bastards had 12 grades, all in different school rooms, prolly even different buildings...
     
  16. nampa???
     
  17. Yeah, a quiet little burg of about 80k famous for the peculiar perfume of the local sugar factory and the atlas stone sized sugar beets that litter our streets when the beet trucks haul said boulders to said factory. It's seasonal. Unfortunately, we're in that season. That, and drive by's. Oh, and a preponderance of octogenarian and immigrant drivers who feel all speed limits must be discounted by roughly 28%. Due to these asphalt sloths, all of us on this end of the Treasure Valley (tomorrow's lesson) are mercilessly mocked by the drivers from the Boise end of the valley. They keep the mockery mostly to themselves though, as most of us are armed.

    Greater Seattle? That's a little presumptuous, isn't it? Although I suppose if you were outside the bounds of the emerald city it would be better than inside the city proper. That begs the question, though. If you were in the city, could that be described as Lesser Seattle? Methinks so...

    I was there with the Mille. Great weather for a track day. Too bad it's 400+ miles to any track from here. Then again, I'd be hooked worse than crack. Did any of you make it out there?
     

  19. Theres a Boise forum?
