Kamiah 2019--May 3-5

For the last 8 years we have kicked off the riding season with a weekend overnight ride from Kennewick to Kamiah, Idaho. It was called a Beginneer's Ride in past years because we had a least one group that was tailored for new riders or experienced riders wanting to ride a relaxed pace but for most the ride has transitioned to a destination ride with 2-4 groups that ride their own route and pace and some solo riders that elect to meet at the motel in Kamiah.

Many have requested the Kamiah ride to be a 3 day event to have an extra day to take advantage of all the good riding around Kamiah so this year's ride is scheduled to start on Friday, May 3, with a return on Sunday, May 5. Anyone wishing to join the group on Saturday May 4 is certainly welcome. We again have a group rate at the Clearwater 12 motel in Kamiah and this year's cost is a significant increase from last years.....$70.29 for a single king bed and $79.26 for double queen beds. These costs include tax plus a pretty good continental breakfast and are 15 per cent less than their normal rates. They are NOT holding a block of rooms for us so everyone needs to make their own reservation to guarantee a room. Last year we filled 20 of their 28 rooms on Saturday so I would advise making a reservation for May 3 and/or May 4 ASAP if you think you are going. As of today, 5 rooms are already booked by our group. You can contact the Clearwater 12 on 1-888-935-2826 or 208-935-2671 and tell them you are part of "Steve's Ride" to get the group rate.

Its still a long ways until May 3 but you should reserve a room if you think you might be attending.

Great news! Anytime you join a quorum it's great riding and togetherness. So, I'll be there too.

Photos to introduce first time maybe attendees to Steve's Kamiah ride ...

I like that first pic.
I hate that second pic.
I had installed a Penske shock not too long before that and didn't have the ride height adjusted properly and was leaning upright too much. When I got off the bike on the rhs, the bike slooooooowly tipped over and I wasn't stong enough to pull it upright before it laid down. The tank bag magnet left a permanant dent in the tank. I'm still so po'd at myself for that!

Sadly, I'll have to miss the event yet again. It's my mom's 70th birthday so I'll be spending the week with her.
