    Thanks everyone for the excitement. :D
    Now the wait as the mapping, DVD and gps work lies ahead.

    Look for DVD premiere announcements in the future.
    We'll be showing them in the winter again like we did for the COBDR, UTBDR & WABDR.

    I'm looking forward to doing this ride. Last year I did the UTBDR solo on a Wee and was wondering how would you rate AZBDR compared to the UTBDR? :ear

    Looks like camping on the navajo res out by the confluence of lil and big colorado river... . Awesome area out there.
    I could be wrong on location though.

    Where you guys in Payson last week around Wednesday while mapping this ride? At the Mcdonalds riding around the parking lot?
    There were a lot of Adventure bikes rolling through for the Outdoor Expo for the weekend. But I saw what looked like some people on a mission on bikes.

    If you saw a new wethead or waterhead or whatever BMW has chosen for a moniker for the 2013 1200 GS , then yes they were at

    EXPO and said that they had just finished the AZBDR. Like lots of others on here I'm looking forward to seeing how they treated

    us desert rats, but judging from the other published routes I'll bet it will interesting regardless .

    It probably will only take 6 days... when filming it takes much longer. But take as much time as you can and see some of the other sights along the way.

    Overall, I'd say the AZBDR is slightly more difficult than the UTBDR. You have to pay attention most of the time on the AZBDR.
