Return to Kamiah - 2018

For the last 7 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 4, with a return on Sunday, May 6. Anyone wishing to join the group on Saturday May 5 is certainly welcome (I will be looking for a volunteer willing to lead a group on Saturday from Kennewick if there is enough interest). We again have a group rate at the Clearwater 12 motel in Kamiah and this year's cost is the same as last years.....$59.40 for a single bed and $70.30 for double queen beds. These costs include tax plus a pretty good continental breakfast and are $18 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 26 of their 28 rooms on Saturday so I would advise making a reservation for May 4 and/or May 5 ASAP if you think you are going. As of today, every room is available except mine. 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 time until May 4 but I wanted to let everyone know the dates so they can plan accordingly. Follow this thread for updates.

That's my yellow VFR! I put a dent in the tank that weekend because the ride height wasn't set correctly. I got off on the right side and the bike sloooooooowly came with me and landed on the tank bag magnet. I'm still sooo po'd at myself for doing that!
Guys and gals, once again I'll miss it due to military but I'll be thinking about ya'all and suffering in silence doing paperwork and computer based trainings. Ugh!

PS. It's not too late to change it to the 3rd weekend!!!

Sorry you canít make it this year but the 3rd weekend in Kamiah has been the site of the Concours Owners Group annual Bun Cooler for the last 27 years. Their group is larger than ours and I donít think Kamiah has enough facilities to take care of both groups at the same time.
