I got the Y-stop burger: beef, ham, bacon and eggs–so good! We happened to be there while they were spraying some kind of emulsifier on the road. We helped pat it down…

Really enjoyable ride.

Excellent burgers! Bring cash, as the internet connection for their card reader can sometimes be temperamental. It’s an easy four-hour round trip from Boise.

Great place to stop and get a burger for the Poker Run. They have excellent service.

The ride up was great. Easy roads the whole way, just watch out for sandy sections.

Stopped at the Y for a quick picture, peanut m&m’s, and a mountain dew. We were hoping to go up and over to Anderson Ranch Reservoir, but we hit deep snow right at 6,000 feet.

The South Fork Rd up from Hwy 20 was buttery smooth, and good thing because I was being chased by a digger of a storm from the south. Only one motorcycle at the Y Stop (mine) but a guy drove up in an SUV who is also a fellow BMW owner. He’s owned BMW’s for over 50 years (me, almost a whopping FOUR!). Sounds like he had a bunch of British bikes in the barn as well. I love making those connections and hearing the stories while out riding.
