how would one go about an invite for the idbdr? if i could get my cards lined up it would be awesome to be a part of it.
I don't think eakins is going to answer you but the first thing you will need is a tattoo of Tourtech across your chest. Then you will need to spend some cash on their panniers, equipment, etc. to be considered. Then you will have to dish out cash to feed the group for the trip and on and on.

WTF do I know..........................but it sounds good.

New Mexico north thru CO?

Hey Bill, been following most of your scouting trips to plan my own epic Rocky Mountain "Stem to Stern" adventure, or "Stern to Stem" to be navigationally correct. Do you have routes leaving from Albuquerque or possibly Flagstaff that head north through the Colorado adventure Route?

My buddies and I are planning a small bike off-road bottom to top trip leaving in early July depending on the snowpack on the top. Our intended destination is all the way to The border north of Glacier NP. KTM 500's and two 990's. Plan is to U-Haul the bikes from LA to drop point to save the off-road tires, and the 800 miles of slab, dump the rentals and head out. The 990's will bail out if the trail gets too rough and secure hot showers, cold beers, and the occasional cigar for us more hardy souls. Five on the list and they are counting on me to be "red dog" leader, (well orange anyway). Opening for sweep and medic/emergency all expensed paid, for those reading this. Eight riders max experienced only. Contact if interested.

Any guidance would be greatly be appreciated.

Jerry, ( satisfied Butler map customer. Ridden every California route, some more than twice)

Not sure how to connect Falgstaff to Colorado but if you just want to get to Canada from Flagstaff on small bikes, take a look at the Great Western Trail. It basically goes due north from Nogalas to Falfstaff, around Grand Canyon then again due north thru centeral Utah. I did put in Tracks for Adv bypasses for the harder sections like single tracks.

Hello Jerry;

Dave still running that trip? ( I was the guy trying to put together the over 70 Baja race team-manage not race, I'm waay too young. Dave was slated to ride with the group).

As for the route, I would rather start in Albuquerque to run the divide instead of Utah. we would only start in Flagstaff if we could find some interesting routes through Chinle down to Ft Defiance. other than that we will start in Albuquerque. The goal is to connect to the Colorado BDR then cut through Wyoming or Utah north of 70, and then Montana with final destination to the border or north into Banff depending on the time and weather. Hwy 93 over the border from Whitefish. trip is planned for 40-50 days as of now with bail-out points for a few of my friends only able to do a 3 week trip.

Do you have any off-road routes north from Albuquerque?

Jerry

A large % of AARG riders are also AARP members.

But not me.

Yet.

actually he did,,, and though i get the sarcasm in your reply it seems more like a circle of friends and friends of friends who know each other or can vouch for each other to be reliable and able for such a ride.

i also learned that eakins has little to do with the riding and routes, he is the map guy not the ride coordinator.

moto, because of the rez and spotty permits to run on it,,, it gets pretty hard to route out a dirt path from flag to co. however you can run from flag to new mex on mostly dirt by stringin stuff together hopping around I-40,, mostly on the south side of it, but nothing has really been set up and mapped so it will be alot of work. ive ridden alot of dirt miles out there but i'm gps less so i dont have tracks.

you could also pretty easily string a dirt run together north of the grand canyon into co. that area is called the the az strip if you didnt know and there is a fair amount of info on dirt rds and such...

either way it would take some work but its do-able.
