    I'm riding a 2013 Yamaha Super Tenere with a full setup for overland. I am going to do the MABDR in early June 2020 but my wife prefers if I go with someone else. In this case, the more the merrier. Lets make it a trip to remember especially since there is so much warning. Who is game?

    Here's a thought, if you time this right the NEBDR maybe finalized and what an adventure that could be?????
    I so hope my Life events (Kid's marriages, grand children, selling/buying homes) is done this years so I can honestly entertain doing something like this next year.

    BDR is putting on a BDR Appalachian Adventure right here in my backyard May 14-17, 2020. I will be attending this event if anyone would like to launch from my house anytime before May 14. I still want to do MABDR in early June as well so lets keep planning.

    The NEBDR provides 2 major challenges to me. #1 distance from home in Chattanooga to start. #2 Coordinating efforts and waypoints won't be very documented for planning purposes. It would very much be a last minute launch. I am finding a lot of good information and recommendations on the MABDR for big bike vs small bike, launch points, and resupply.

    I rode it in May of this year. Enjoyed it so much I would do the trip again. Hit me up after the new year as your plans firm up.

    Might be able to join for a stretch. I just realized it comes within 8 miles of the house.

    The first two weeks of June are pretty open for me, and the MADBR is on my bucket list. Feel free to PM me for contact information and planning. I would do it on my R1250GSA, and would be open to either camping or hoteling, or some combination of the two.
