I have a highlight video of my entire trip, just waiting on an external hard drive so I can finish it. My laptop hates me.

One state or multiple?

You're killing me Tony! You can't give us so many options (but I'm glad you do)

Hmmmm

I may inquire about adding something more technical that would not add much additional time, if that's possible.. so an inside loop. Maybe best on the 2nd half of the trip so it would be more optional based on time we're making :). We're on big bikes but that single track sure does look awesome.

Does this mean we have to go back in 2015?

What's particularly intriguing this time is including head-spinning single-track trails -- legal motorcycle trails -- which are not our usual course for long travel routes.

But for the right riders , who could resist a day of this:



This loop is likely one day to become the fourth lobe in Heart of the West ADV Route, another option that will empower you to do your adventure your way.

Oh my.
The single track looks spectacular. I have already figured there is no way I'm doing this ride in two weeks, and if you finish this loop before the 2014 trip, I can see spending between three and four weeks doing the entire ride.

As difficult as tracing the two tract on the Benchmark Atlases is, I bet the single tract will be really difficult to locate on the atlases. By the way, the price you charge to trace the route on the atlases is an incredible deal. I'm doing it for the knowledge, but I can attest that it takes a lot of time.

Nice job Tony!

Uhmmmm....this is what I'm talkin' about. I might be willing to kick in the $$ for routing like this.
Starts and ends from where to where? 800 mile route?
I'd bring the husky for this one. Camping off bikes, right?

Oh my is right!

Custom routes remain exclusive to the specific clients for the season originally requested.

Inmate MotorcycleJazz's famous Tour of Idaho, and Tour of Idaho II, may well fit the bill for many who would like a serious, long-distance trail-riding adventure.

I'm not a trial-bike rider, but I can say that Idaho's wealth of public lands has to make it paradise for that genre.

Hmmm...was that a round about 'no'? You're not selling the route for any that would want to ride it?

I guess I'm confused about what you do then.

The simplest answer, Browneye: I do the work. You live the dream.

Hope that sounds like a "Yes!"

Let me know when you're ready to ride ...

TxTiger has proven the value of good editing!

His labor marking out the route in his Benchmarks found pages that better represent the route than some that I cited in the support memo I provide to clients.

My hat's off to now-cross-eyed TxTiger!
