TOUR CHARACTER

BDR

This tour is best suited for experienced riders with good off road riding skills. It is categorized as ADVENTURE +. You need not be an expert, but the novice will be tested. We consider this the perfect small bike tour. Riders may use their own motorcycles or rent one from MotoDiscovery. If you choose to ride a heavier motorcycle larger than 650cc, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you have the experience and physicality to match the size and performance of such a motorcycle. Arizona presents a unique opportunity to get away and ride in the middle of winter. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has superb flight schedules. This can be a seamless touring experience where all you need to do is show up and enjoy a fun and adventurous ride through the backroads of Arizona. Groups are small. Early reservations are encouraged. Call us if you have questions.

 

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.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Backcountry Discovery Routes has paved the way in researching the best off road routes in many regions of the USA. In Arizona we will be following sections 1 and 2 of the AZBDR.
  • You will marvel at the imagery of thousands of enormous saguaro cactus, up to 40 ft. tall, spreading across the open Sonoran desert. You know you are in Arizona.
  • The landscape experienced on the Arizona Express Dual Sport Ride is more than just desert. You’ll realize this as we gain the summit of Mt. Lemmon and ride the historic Reddington Pass. The mountains of Arizona are part of the contrasts in beauty and elevation.
  • For centuries, mining has contributed to the settling of Arizona. We’ll enjoy learning more about how gold, turquoise, copper, and coal have been a part of Arizona’s boom and bust mining history since the times of the earliest pioneers. 
  • Ride the epic 2 track roads through Mt. Wrightson Wilderness Area. 
  • We’ll get close to Mexico on this Arizona motorcycle tour. Look forward to riding scenic 2-track roads along the Mexico border through Coronado National Forest.
  • Experience the best service packed into 4 great riding days. This is the perfect riding adventure at a great value.
  • Limited to ten (10) participants.
  • This tour is the ideal platform for a customized private tour just for you and your friends. Interested? Fill out this easy Custom Motorcycle Tour Questionnaire, and let’s get started.
