I just took delivery of my '07 R3 Classic Tourer three days ago, and I believe I'm the first in Mountain Home, Idaho to have one.

Which isn't really saying much... the town's less than twelve thousand souls... but still.


How I wound up getting the bike: I went to Big Twin Cycles in Boise to look at a couple of Moto Guzzis over a year ago, and just happened to see a pair of R3s on the showroom floor; one black, one red. It was love at first sight. Then, I learned what it could do!

After eighteen long months, hours spend reading about it and watching videos when I could find them (all during a nine-month long deployment), and paying off prior debts, the Phantom Black and Cardinal Red beauty is mine!

Welcome

Glad you've joined us Alister. You've got some beautiful country up there. I spent the better part of a year traveling through Boise, Moscow, Twin Falls, Pocatello, Idaho Falls and more.

Keep us posted on what you do with the beast and a few pictures would be in order after you're done.

Alister - my brother was also a wing nut, briefly, at Mt. Home. He's been in Caldwell for some 25 years since. If I recall they do a lot of beets in your neck of the woods as well?? Could be the next bio-fuel alternative??? They sure give me gas :)

Oh yeah, you got the slower of red/black tourers. The Cardinal Red and Heretic Black :) is much faster.

Welcome aboard, don't worry you won't be the slowest Rocket around, yours does at least have black on it. Only way it would be faster is all black.:bch:

Absolutely! Just charged my camera and removed all the old images. Going out with some friends for a ride to the Anderson Dam area today. Right in the foothills, so it should make for some beautiful backdrops.

*laughs* Don't know about the beets, but we do have Simplot and a good deal of beef and dairy cattle. And a whole lotta nothing.

Um... the panniers are black. Surely that counts for something?
