Heavyweight Bikes


These bikes typically boast engine displacement greater than 800ccs. All that power comes with a price; heavyweight bikes top the scales over 400 pounds and often have lower ground clearance than other classes of dual sports. They have greater weight management capacity, and are the most comfortable way to travel 2-up. They are also favored by people who like to pack large quantities of gear.

Ride Description:

Ride cancelled due to weather. Since I can't guarantee the condition of the terrain (due to snow/rain/mud), I'm cancelling the ride. That dirt out there turns to mud very quickly, and gets dangerously slick.

Day 1 Crane Creek

I had Friday off, so I put in a couple of invites to leaver early for Ed's ride. Originally, there were going to be five of us, but as the weather radar worsened, it was down to Ed, Mark, and I for Friday. We took off from Nampa and took pavement to Jordan Valley, since there aren't any dirt routes there this time of year (snow). Getting there was a bit chilly for Mark, since he was the only poor fool without wind protection on his Z. It was about 40 degrees when we pulled into JV for gas.

Ride Description:

Meet 2pm at the SW corner of the Walmart parking lot.

We'll ride south to Hemmingway, take 2 track to Murphy, a dirt 'road' from Murphy to the Silver City Rd, double back a bit to the 'Beef Trail', and then drop into the canyon and run the 'Beef Trail '.

This is very much a level 3 ride ~ typical two track, rocky trail with ruts. Nothing very steep or too technical. I'll be on my 950A.

Give me a call or email of you've got any q's.

Here's a chance to test out some of your camping gear, on a easy ride. My goal this year if for more IAMC member to get out and camp. So, bring what you've got, and let's go camping. I've got 3 of everthing, so if you need to borrow anything (tent, sleeping bag, stove... whatever) ~ just ask... I'd be happy to bring it for you to use.
