TOUR CHARACTER

BDR

We characterize the Heart of California ADV Tour as ADVENTURE +. Novices will find this ride to have stretches that will demand all of your skill sets be put to work so we recommend that you have prior off road experience and training before taking this one on. Smaller dual purpose motorcycles will be most at home here.  Anything over 800cc is strongly discouraged. This tour is filled with stunning remote southern California scenery. Open deserts slam into mountains and canyons along the route. We’ll encounter remnants of American pioneering and Gold Rush history. Inspired by Backcountry Discovery Routes CA route and bits of the Nevada BDR, we’ve designed a ride that is logistically friendly and captures the essence of what has to be one of Americas most exciting adventure rides. We keep the groups small, so sign up early. MotoDiscovery also specializes in private customized tours. Contact us for more information.

NOTE: This tour, and all MotoDiscovery USA Back Road tours are highly subject to itinerary changes, even last minute, due to weather, forest fire threats, landslide road closures and ongoing research. Please accept this as the nature of adventure travel and count on MotoDiscovery serving your best interests and that of the enjoyment and safety of the group.
