Best of the Idaho BDR
Join us on this 5 day 6 night Best of the BDR tour of Idaho! We will be following most of the Idaho BDR route and add in fun detours and bonus scenic spots. Our riding will take us through some of the most scenic destinations. We will be camping, which will allow us to experience the Best of the Idaho BDR!
How difficult is the riding?
The route has optional hard sections and easier bypass sections. We will stay together as a group for most of the riding. However, if some of the group feels like tackling a harder section and some do not, the guides will make a decision to split the group for those specific sections so everyone can enjoy their riding.
What kind of motorcycle do I need?
There is no one answer to this question because it depends on preferences, riding ability, and of course, budget. Any motorcycle can be converted into a dual sport bike. Heck, we know people who have converted their Harleys into adventure bikes! For this tour, we will be riding terrain that is big adventure bike friendly (BMW 1200GS, KTM 1290 etc.). However, we have had many customers ride smaller and mid size dual sport bikes and enjoy the ride just as much. If you don’t have a bike right now, we can help you with a rental.
Will a support truck be following us?
Yes. Our support truck will be carrying everything we need to set up camp in the wilderness. We will also have room for your gear if you don’t want to carry it on your bike.
*Note: Support truck will follow us as long as we get at least 6 People
How do I need to pack my bike?
Pack lightly, efficiently, and in a way that encourages proper bike performance. Feel free to consult with us before the tour about how to pack your bike. We also suggest daily packing of snacks, water, and clothing for layering to adjust for the conditions.
What protection do I need for my bike?
We recommend the following at the minimum:
Note: Not having these items does not mean you can’t come on the tour. It just means your bike may get damaged and the protection we recommend is for major working components.
- Skid Plate
- Crash Bars
- Headlight guard
- Radiator Guards
What tires do I need for my bike?
We recommend at least a 50/50 tire and even better is a more dirt or off-road focused tire. We will be riding through some technical sections that are more comfortable with a more off road focused tire.
How many people are in the riding group?
We limit our groups to 10 people
How do we handle extreme weather?
We will ride in most weather conditions. However, our guides are well equipped to make the best decision for the group regarding trail and weather conditions and may re-route the riding day.
What should I pack?
Clothes: Proper riding gear is a must! If you have any questions about riding gear and clothing, feel free to contact us and we can cover this in more detail. In general, people tend to over pack clothing items. Besides riding gear (including a helmet, jacket, gloves, pants, and boots), you will need layers for frequent weather changes. Consider packing a separate set of comfortable clothes/shoes to wear at camp while we are lounging.
For your Bike:
If you have a good set of tools it is not a bad idea to bring them; some people like to be self-sufficient. If you don’t have any or want to save room we should have enough tools to fix or repair most bikes on the fly.
