    I am planning to do the Colorado BDR in August 2019. Starting the broadcast early in hopes of getting a few other big bike riders to join me.

    My trip this year (2018) was the MABDR, which I rode in May.

    Looking for people with at least a little offroad experience that can handle a 20-50mph offroad pace...depending on terrain.

    I'll most likely camp half of the trip and stay in hotels half of the time, alternating days of camping and hotel stay. However, I'm open to doing hotels every night.

    I'll be on a R1200GS Adventure.

    If your interested in the trip, post here or send me a PM.

    -Trent

    Thanks... Along with myself there is a good chance my brother will also be riding. Only snag with him is wellw need to source a rental ADV bike for him. He rides a K1200S and although he's ridden in some non sport Touring appropriate roads... He would like to go as well. We're both what most would consider fairly fast and competent riders on street or in the dirt. Able to deal with adversity and adapt and overcome obstacles. We both like to put miles on.

    I could be interested in this and have a decent knowledge of the route/bailouts in central Colorado that might help. I am normally in the area all of July each year, so early start in august likely increases odds. Gentleman looking for a rental: there are several sources for this, though not super cheap. I will subscribe to planning thread and hope it comes together!.

    I’m following this with interest. If you have room. I was planning on maybe heading to the Carolinas around that time but I would much rather ride the COBDR.

    GS Giants has a rally near the start at the beginning of August. I may try to start after the rally, if I decide to attend. However, I have to see how much time I will be able to get off from work. Rally is VERY low priority.

    Hello! I am planning to do the COBDR this summer as well. I was planning solo but would rather join others. Safety in numbers. I live in Colorado Springs so could offer a launching point and/or a meet up point. Is the ride still on?

    Yes, still looking to do it in August. I e got to move in June so will be settling into a new position over the summer. Its still to early to say which week in August, but will most likely be early August.

    I've done the COBDR 2x. It's a blast. I've always done it in August though. Depending on the winter...those looking to do it in May/June...might still find snow on several of the passes.

    August can bring heavy monsoons.
    Riding season is July 4 - mid September.
    September is the very best month to moto Colo.
