Hey, 5 of us are leaving from PDX on 8/30 and dropping our tow rig off just north of Bear Lake then continue onto the southern start point via freeway and then hitting it from the South start on 9/1. The group has some lower clearance bikes in it and we will most likely choose to avoid Lockhart basin and the harder routes.

Hope to see you on the route. Look for a group with big guy on an older lucifer red Tiger 955 and a bright yellow Buell.

Where are you leaving the tow rig.....

We've considered towing to the start to save tires...I'm curious where you plan to leave the rig? That would save us 1700 miles of highway riding on knobbies! We'll be 4 big KTM's, 2 -Black and 2-Orange. I'll keep a lookout for you.

We lucked out and one of our groups' sister in law has a dude ranch in Lava Hot Springs Idaho. We couldn't not take the offer.

Rent a small uhaul and drive to the Southern boarder... Just dont tell them you're hauling bikes. .. Something about the fuel they dont like.

GPS downloads....North to South?

Does anyone know if the GPS tracks have been done in the North to South version for the UTBDR? We need them relatively quick.

Just load the tracks into Basecamp and invert them.

Quick Question

Hi there.

My boyfriend and I are planning to do the Utah back country discovery route this October (2014) and I was wondering if any one has advice or information about weather. We have been told the rain may cause us some problems, is this possible in early October?

Any suggestions and advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You might try the "Rockies" forum and not the "Pacific Northwet" forum. For us, yeah, I'd say expect rain. In the High Deserts/Mountains of Utah, snow would be more of a concern.

Thanks for that. I am new to this and didn't realise I was even in the 'Pacific Northwest' forum!
