On The Fence



If your looking for a great  fall ride / weekend . . . . . swing this way . . . ( always the second Full weekend of September) to Join us for 3 days of Excellent riding in the beautiful PNW  Northern Idaho Mountains, as well as the opportunity to meet some great “Like Minded” / “Good Natured” fellow KLR riders around camp.

The PNW / NEW KLR Rally’s are NON-PROFIT, so NO registration or paying is required = Just show up / attend. = We cover any up front costs for porta john when needed . . a donation can is set out for those who are able to donate to our out of pocket expense’s, and once the out of pocket costs are met the can is taken away. It has worked perfectly through the years, and this is how it will stay.

We did Base at the big eddy last year on the ST Joe, and they do charge $10/night for camping  but they have gas / restaurant, and a bar. Last year I collected from all riders and paid the proprietor in one lump sum to make it easier on him. I would prefer moving back into a more remote area like we started in, but at this point till another location is found we will be basing again at the big eddy as all the riders did enjoy staying there as it is centrally located for riding the area – I will let everyone know if the location changes over the summer

For those of you concerned with heading to the woods with a bunch of strangers – Don’t be . . . . This is NOT a bunch of crazed out of control lunatics in the woods, but rather a great bunch of middle aged (okay some past middle age) = Good Natured people who share the love for The KLR, and are always willing to help out a fellow rider, so please do not hesitate attending !! Rider Numbers vary from year to year from 10 – 30, so this is a relaxed roughed in camping experience / get together.

The Rally Starts on Friday, but if you want to come up early your more then welcome, as I generally go up Wednesday prior to assure we get the spot, to cut some fire wood in advance, and for some extra relaxation.

Some real beautiful country we live in up here !!!

I would also like to throw out a BIG THANKS for the support we received from sponsors through the years Kawasaki / ROK = it was outstanding as usual.

A big thanks to Mikes Power Sports here in Spokane – mike always gives me a couple Shinko 244’s to include in the nightly drawings !!!

This Rally is a KLR ONLY Rally – Sorry if this offends any of you, and I don’t want to hear a bunch of whining, but considering we started this Rally as a way to bring all KLR650 riders together for great riding / camping / camaraderie, this rally is designated and will remain for KLR owners / riders ONLY. If you want to attend a “Multi Make” motorcycle rally there are PLENTY to choose from on the ADV Rider forums and others.


The Rally base Camp location is “The Big Eddy” nestled next to the ST. Joe river in Northern Idaho.


Routes / Roads vary from smooth / Fast Forest service roads to semi Technical – You decide what you want to ride, and we will be happy to advise what routes offer as to the degree of riding.

We will be riding in Remote areas so be sure your bikes are all up to par. I’ve found hauling a spare (pre-oiled) Air cleaner for these events is a good idea so you can change it if needed. No worries in the event someone need to do some repairs, as We will have plenty of tools and assistance in the event we need to do any repairs at the rally for riders.
We are most all geared up to do repairs on the trail if needed as well.

I am really Looking forward to seeing everyone from last year, and meeting new riders & riding with everyone !!

I will be building a list of attendees: Confirmed / On the fence, so let me know ASAP if you are going to attend, or are on the fence, and I will get you on the List, so we can have an idea who all will be attending.

Contact me via the above “contact” link, or. . .

You can also use the contact me link above to get on the list. Name / Location / Truck ? Trailer ? Riding?

PLEASE let me know your  name + City your coming from (for other area riders to see & maybe join in the ride to the rally), I ALSO need to know if you are riding / driving / tent camping or bringing an RV (Camper / trailer / Motor home), as that way I can guesstimate / stage tent versus RV area’s as people arrive so we don’t have tents going up where we will need room to park RV’s.

ALSO . . . If your “on the fence”, and decide for certain you are attending, let me know ASAP and I will move you to the Confirmed list.

I have taken the liberty to add some locals to the list – Go ahead and post up your confirmation though so we can get the thread started  :thumb: Or Email me and I will add you to the list that way
