I'm assuming this will be slightly different than the already established T3?

Wicked follow dirt, aim north

"Idaho backcountry" seems almost redundant - they're so spoiled out there they probably need GPS tracks to take routes that aren't good dual-sporting. Looking forward to riding it.

Can't have too many Idaho Routes. The BDR's seem more appropriate for bigger adventure bikes as well.

Of course. BDRs are designed for larger ADV bikes but there are tough sections in everyone one.
"The route will begin in the old western town of Jarbidge Nevada and then meander through the west side of the Idaho Rocky Mountains on the way to the Canadian Border at the Idaho Panhandle."

The IDBDR appears to run west of the T3.
You could up up the IDBDR and down the T3.

Hey! Keep those big bikes out of Jarbidge!! Nobody knows about that place. Next thing you know, they will make a bunch of wilderness around it... Oh wait, they already did that. JK

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

I don't know how some guys do it…in my mind I feel I would like to do something like this but then I get out on the trail and ride a BDR which takes me a week and my body is spent! …i am only 37, maybe I need to hit the gym or something. lol

So happy to see this happening, can't wait to see the route! If you guys are looking for local input on the northern parts of the route post on the Spokane forum, you'll get plenty of commentary and support. Or if you have some sections mapped out that you'd like checked out, drop a line. Heading north, will you be traversing the Lolo Motorway east to west, or west to east?

I wonder if we could con Sterling, Rob, and Tom into this? Get some local sponsorship going for support, some solid dates, and meetup points for those who can't make the entire trip. Route/track it and they will come :)

The key for me is to not treat it like a race and haul ass all the time. That alone wipes me out. I take 15-30 min breaks along the way at sweet spots. I then also take down days and chill at a hot spring or such and recharge the batteries & body.

The goal is to help pump tourist $ into & support Jarbidge.

Just spent 6 days in the Idaho City area-wow wow wow, stoked to see and do the IDBDR!! Bring it on, sand, rock, water, elevation changes, awesome things to see and great folks are everywhere Left Boise mid '90s, hit some elevation and it was 45 and clear. IMHO, the training ride we did for our ADV Camp was the best yet and look forward to another one next year.

Spoiled? Isn't every state like this?

I suspect we do have more miles of dirt road than paved.

Thumb Sightings?

Rumor has it they are out and about finalizing the route :) Any inmates spot the BDR crew as they move through the route?
