Thread: Seattle to NV

  1. Default Seattle to NV

    Just finished a motorcycle trip to northern NV, Oregon, Idaho and E. WA.
    The road WA129 south from Clarkston WA is a great motorcycle road...twisties and ups and downs through a beautiful area...only problem was it was snowing and raining. A clear area around Enterprise, OR gave us a chance to dry off and grab some good food at New York Richies....highly recommended for burgers...the whole town seems to eat lunch there. The roads in central and southeastern Oregon are great mostly empty roads....Great stops...Fields, Frenchglen (great hotel), OR. From Elko, NV the road north to Idaho (225) is lonely and beautiful and watch out of crickets crossing the road in June by the gazillions....don't miss the Ruby Mountains south of Elko also.
    North from Boise on 55 takes you to beautiful McCall, ID.....lots of roads in the area to explore.....Stanley is a good start. The entire trip was 2400 miles and not too expensive due to 50mpg on the bike.

    Default A Lot to Like About That Area

    Thanks for the Road Report. I was up that way on a couple of trips over the last few years. Did you do the Spiral Highway into Clarkston from the north? Get to see Bruneau Canyon off ID-51 as you headed down into Nevada? Have a Basque meal at the Star Hotel in Elko? I'll be sure to get back again and try some of the places you found
