    Well done. Thanks for getting that up. There are a few of us north of Idaho planning on riding the tour this summer and this is great to see.

    Thanks

    Nice work cutting the footage together. I am curious if you have footage of what you consider the toughest parts of the ride, so far looks more open then I expected, beautiful, just more open vs. Single track. I am looking forward to riding this in the late summer!

    You will see hard riding as the days go on as I get them posted... The hills are much steeper then they look in the movie. I would say half of the seat time not miles is single track it's a very fun and challenging ride you won't be disappointed if you are looking for something that is a challenge plus in most of the difficult terrain none of us remembered to turn on our helmet cams we just wanted to ride!!!! :ricky

    Always steeper than it looks! Good to hear that there is great balance of seat time overall. Looking forward to the next video!

    Thanks for the link:thumb I'd definitely love to ride something like this-that's the type of riding that appeals to me the most. . Just so dang hard to find that right riding partner who shares the same riding style and has the time to do it-especially living on the East Coast. I'm riding the TAT solo(R.I. to OR) this summer so maybe the following year. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. If it weren't for your ride report,someone like me on the East Coast would never know where to find such a ride. Definitely hope to ride this one.

    You guys were camping in style! Weather was perfect for day 1.

    What type of GPS did you use for the trip?

    Day 2 still in the works?

    Loving this RR. If anybody wants to do the TID and needs a partner let me know. I'll be in the states for a few months this spring and would be game for it.

    I'm planning on doing this ride this summer, maybe for my 49th birthday in early July :D
    Where do you guys gas up along the way and how far is the longest distance between fuel stops? I have a KTM 250 EXC 2 stroke that I'd like to take on this ride, would be funner than my KLX250s nut the KLX goes further on fuel and has a plate...do you need a plate anywhere on this ride?
    Great video, nice editing...thanks for taking the time to out this together and sharing it. This ride is much more my speed than rides like the WABDR (http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/) the rides on that site are more for big, heavy dual sports, would like to see more routes like this one put together.
