Is this something you could do on a KLR as a relative noob, or do you need to be pretty experienced?

Looking at the blue vein in the pic I think you should be OK.

you would do just fine. most of it is easier-medium level and the harder sections have alt easier routes. it's aprox. a 6-8 day ride.

Does anybody have a lead to anyone planning to ride the COBDR next year yet? I'd be very interested in tagging along but may also consider a solo ride depending on what the route ends up looking like.

Next Summer

I am going to try it next June/July time frame depending on when I can get vacation. I want to double it up with the UTBDR which we did last month for the first time!

Don't know you so no offense...

eakin,

Looks like it will be an exciting route....

However, while I don't know you and it seems you live here in CO and obviously have the skills...

Did you happen to include GEEK in this route discovery trip? I've lived here for 21 years, driven and ridden a ton, and have yet to meet anyone who trully knows as much about the hidden and exciting back country routes in CO as Ed (Geek).

I sure hop he was at least given some opportunity to chime in.

Just say-in, not trying to ruffle any feathers.

looking forward to the route next summer!

Here's mine, on the inaugural run of the COBDR in August with Touratech-USA's Advance Scouting Team. Compared to the rest of the guys, I'm a klutz.

those 2 will provide a sweet up one and down the other loop across those 2 states. both routes start really close to each other in the 4 corners and you can ride either one in reverse. you can use our WY state map to connect the 2 northern points using some killer remote western dirt routes.

we've got AZ and ID on the radar for future BDR maps and i'm really excited for the day when an AZ > UT > ID (mexico to canada) route is in place. it can even serve as the western mirror of the CDR route.

this next spring when the map is out and we have the DVD premieres, i'm guessing people will start planning up.
