Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route Released

Organizing your next motorcycle adventure just got easier with the release of the Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route (IDBDR), the latest in the BDR series of trans-state routes created for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel.

The IDBDR release includes free GPS tracks and route travel information available on the BDR website, a waterproof map from Butler Motorcycle Maps, and expedition DVD produced by Noren Films.

The IDBDR is a remote south-to-north route across the state of Idaho covering over 1,250 miles of mostly non-paved track. The route begins in the old western town of Jarbidge, Nevada and meanders through the west side of the Idaho Rocky Mountains on the way to the Canadian Border at the Idaho Panhandle.

Two stunning and historic backroads are part of the IDBDR – the Magruder Corridor and the Lolo Motorway. Several small mountain towns in Idaho are visited along the way including Yellow Pine, Burgdorf Hot Springs, Elk City, Avery, Wallace, and Clark Fork.

“I have ridden adventure motorcycles in the backcountry of most of the western United States and in seven different countries and I am simply in love with riding in Idaho. It truly provides a unique backcountry experience,” says Bill Whitacre, IDBDR Expedition Member and Idaho resident.

The IDBDR documentary provides an in-depth look into the creation and first expedition of the IDBDR. Follow a group of riders on adventure motorcycles including the BMW R1200GS Adventure, F800GS and KTM 990 and 1190 Adventure, as they travel through remote sections of the Rocky Mountains, and discover stunning mountain ranges, old west mining towns, isolated lookout towers, natural hot springs, rich history, and friendly people.
