i gave up that cruiser habit in the 80s
these days it's all DR650 ADV-modded!

don't worry about your GS, there is a Starbucks along the route so you'll be ok

Looking forward to the ID BDR!

Do you do these routes on a DR650? Seems I only see BMW and KTM in the videos...

Any plans on doing California??

A CA <> OR <> WA would be a terrific route.

for fall of 2015 i was dreaming up this epicness:

... then how about ???

S. Border > AZBDR > UTBDR >IDBDR > N. Border > GWT > S. Border > CDR > N. Border > pass out from pure bliss.

That would have to be one the best USA ADV rides of all time and maybe more epic than the TAT.

Oh yeah DR650! check out my ride.
We've had a S10, KLR650 and a WR250R do BDRs.
Anything with a tag will work.
We are offering prizes to the 1st person to do a BDR on a scooter

Many of the same guys who make and ride these each year just have $$$ bikes, but it's go for any ADV or DS bike.

Yes CA will happen as well as NV even though it's not listed on the website yet. I've been pushing to get it listed asap so it will happen.
We ride 1 a year and release that next winter.
You can see all the finished or planned routes.

I do know for 2015 we will ride an East Coast Appalachian BDR (APBDR)
for all our east coast bros! So Cali is down the line somewhere.

Dirtdiva and Ricklesss did the Nez Perce rally on Honda CT 110's a few years back,,all the way from Oregon,,and back.
We met an older couple a few years later who make an annual ride on the same Honda trail bikes to the top of Pinyon Peak, she was last seen wearing plaid pedalpushers and a pair of winos,,but she did have a helmet!(along with a tough rugged sweatshirt, and gardening gloves!) Pics on my old dead computer, sorry, but,,,the answer is,,YES!,,you could ride lots of Idaho on a small bike,, I think that a scooter would be asking for a rescue mission though,,,, ,,
