    Seattle, WA - (January 10th, 2013) Winter is the perfect time to set your sights on that bucket list, and start planning your next motorcycle escape. For riding ideas look no further than the non-profit Backcountry Discovery Routes, and their latest project, the Arizona Backcountry Discovery Route (AZBDR). The AZBDR is the fourth installment in the Backcountry Discovery Routes series of trans-state routes created for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel.

    The AZBDR is a 750-mile scenic ride across the state of Arizona, beginning at the Mexico border and finishing at the Utah border. The route consists of mostly remote dirt roads, that pass through iconic locations including the Mogollon Rim, Sunset Crater National Monument, Grand Canyon and the Navajo Nation.

    “Arizona has so many different landscapes you can ride in a single day. We discovered very remote and seemingly untouched wild lands, pristine mountain ranges, and a surprising number of water crossings. I think the AZBDR is the most remote and challenging of the routes so far. It really takes the word ‘Backcountry’ to new levels for the Backcountry Discovery Routes concept.”

    -Paul Guillien, President, Backcountry Discovery Routes

    The AZBDR documentary provides an in-depth look into the creation and first expedition of the AZBDR. Follow a group of riders on adventure motorcycles including the Yamaha WR250R, KTM 990 Adventures, BMW F800GS, and the 2013 R1200GS as they camp from their motorcycles, tackle tough terrain, and enjoy the stunning and varied landscapes of Arizona’s remote backcountry, including historic old west towns, remote deserts, pine-covered mountains, beautiful canyons and Native American lands.

    The AZBDR release includes free GPS tracks and route travel information available on the BDR website, a waterproof map from Butler Motorcycle Maps, and expedition documentary on DVD produced by Noren Films.

    The AZBDR DVD and map will be released March 1, 2014 and can be pre-ordered from Touratech-USA or Butler Maps.

    AZBDR Movie Nights at Motorcycle Dealerships

    The AZBDR Movie will be premiering at motorcycle dealerships across the U.S. staring February 1st. Call your local motorcycle dealer and have them contact the BDR organization to schedule the AZBDR movie premiere in your area. info@backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com

    The AZBDR project is presented by Go AZ Motorcycles, the nation’s premiere motorcycle dealership, and the official dealer of the AZBDR.

    “The ADV community lives for the opportunity to take the road less traveled,” said Go AZ Motorcycles General Manager, Gina Marra. “Through our partnership with BDR we have been able to bring to light some of the most stunning and diverse roads in Arizona, routes we believe will fuel the riding experience for enthusiasts.”

    The BDR Organization could not have accomplished it's goals without support from our corporate sponsors including: Touratech-USA, Butler Motorcycle Maps, KLIM Technical Riding Gear, BMW Motorcycle Owners Association, NEMO Equipment, Inc., Trailmaster Adventure Gear, Noren Films, and other sponsors.

    Just got a Desierto III for my 09 GSA. Wish I hadn't.

    The installation is dreadful. First, the instructions are only useful if you know how to assemble the thing in the first place. The pictures have no context and only serve to mystify.

    Second, after hours of screwing around, I still can't get the fairing onto the bracket. The Desierto uses 4 tiny M5 screws to attach the fairing to the bracket, and the lower two mounting points are all but inaccessible. The tape-on-the-driver tip hasn't payed off.

    I've tried 3 different Allen drivers, to include a 3mm bit on an elbow socket. Nothing can get the angle. Tomorrow I'm going to cut down a regular Allen wrench to see if I can get the tiny bolts in without stripping the mounting points on the fairing.

    Otherwise, I'm going to need to hire an elf with tiny little hands and drivers to get this thing mounted.

    Hi!

    Any update on when you'll have the system in stock in the US (for KTM 1190)?

    This was passed along from tech support:

    Sorry you are having such a hard time with the install of this fairing. That particular piece is difficult to install. The instructions are posted online here with color photos that help with the context a bit: http://shop.touratech.de/media/manuals/09-044-0810-0.pdf

    To install the lower two bolts in the fairing you really need a ball end hex tool like this one here: http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/PN-MP08-0185/MP08-0185

    Those bolts are hard to reach. Good luck with the install.
    If you are still having problems, please call in.


    Thanks, TT
