    Watching the COBDR video while quarantined... does it make it better or worse? Want to go back!

    I think a little better versus worse....because one option is to be quarantined without great videos like yours. Thanks again for all the effort in creating.

    From watching the video again, looks like you were rockin' BiLT gear, how did you like it? Also what Boots did you use, as well as you partners? Lastly, is the big ole Honda GW in your IG page yours too?

    Stay Heathly.

    Thanks for watching....

    Answers:

    - BiLT Gear - Not going to win any popularity contest, but I've not had any trouble with it. I figure I can replace it 3 times for what I would have in top brand gear.... Since I only get to do one or two big trips a year, no issues.... If I were a full time traveler, that would be different.

    - Boots -Both of us using Forma Adventure boots... love them!

    - Goldwing is mine, wife is spoiled and that's the only bike she will ride with me. (She road a GS in the Greece Video, only because they don't rent GW's there). There are a few video's on my youtube channel with us on the GW. I think the only two bikes in my IG page that were not mine when I took the photo are the Harley(rented) and the GS(rented). I'm always looking for my next bike, rearranging the herd.

    All the Best

    The new Goldwings are really tempting. I love the newest version that is the non-touring....basically no top case. I also like the F6B, but either one would be a complete frivolous purchase for me...I can't stand long road rides, I prefer dirt, gravel, off road...so the big GW would just be for putting around the hood and running errands. That said, if I have the money (once kids are out of the house) I still might buy one.

    I’m with you on the Bilt gear. Someday I hope to have the budget for Aerostitch or similar. But for now my Bilt Hi-Viz Waterproof Expedition Jacket on sale @$149 is doing me fine.

    Although my real reason for posting is so I can find your video later when I have time to watch it! :)

    Bilt is a great way to get into the sport. Especially for those of us who only take a few serious adventures a year.

    You can easily find my channel at dansadv.com ... I would like to think my videos have improved since this one.

    Thanks Again

    It's very tempting. I am a Honda fanboy, but biased towards thumpers, and light weight (except my own). Current ride is CRF250L. She aint fast, but does all I ask....I am slow. Would love a 400/500CC AT though.

    Again, great video and pics. I really want to do this ride.

    The 250L would be just fine on this ride. It would be quite a bit easier than wrestling a big ADV bike. We are all still looking for the unicorn... maybe someday we'll get a true middle weight.

    Just came across this today. CO pics never get old. I spent a week riding around CO last year myself, but not on the BDR. Loved the drone footage. Thanks for sharing.
