Re: Good Triumph dealer in Boise, ID?
- Was driving cross country two years ago and I stopped in (Big Twin).
Great dealership (as far as I could tell). Had a bunch of race bikes
on display upstairs (one was a BMW flat twin, first race bike of that
type I'd seen). It was one of the better British and European bike
dealerships I've been in for number of bikes on display, enthusiasm
of the staff etc.
Don't know if you've ever been to Boise, but it is an awesome place.
First went there about 10 years ago and I was expecting a po dunk
town. Couldn't have been further from the truth. Very progressive!
Great mountains, shops, restaurants and theater.
The "orange" astroturf on the Boise State University football field
was also pretty cool.
The weather there is just about perfect. I believe they have about
300 sunny days a year and you can just about 12 months a year. Of
course they get snow, but it's nothing to have a 70 degree day pop up

- Don't know about dealers, but there are some GREAT roads in the panhandle.
My brother and I were out there two summers ago. All the east west roads
followed river valleys through pine and spruce covered mountains. Light
traffic, smooth pavement and lots of sweeping curves. Just watch out for the
Also, I don't know about Boise but the KOA style camp ground we stayed at
the last night had hot and cold running water in the bathroom so they had
hot showers. Owner said they had something called a water heater. What ever
that is. :-)
