Have you been looking for a Backcountry Discovery Route tour that allows you to experience a beautiful ride at an affordable price? Do you like to ride and camp, forgoing some of the “luxuries” of the expensive guided tours? Then this trip is for you!
Join Colorado Motorcycle Adventures on a scouting tour of the Utah Backcountry Discovery Route, in partnership with Wolfman Luggage, as they preview this ride for a full 5-star tour offering in the summer of 2015. You’ll be checking out the route by riding all of the loops (beginner and advanced), scouting accommodation options, previewing dining choices, and planning all of the details that go into a full tour next year. You’ll be camping every other night with hotels in between for a hot shower and good night’s sleep. If you want an affordable tour experience and enjoy the challenge of riding with all of your essentials with you, then come join this incredible route.
This tour price includes a KLR adventure bike, all of your hotel and camping fees, a Colorado Motorcycle Adventures TShirt, a Butler motorcycle map of the UTBDR, and basic rental insurance. You will be responsible for your travel expenses to/from Salt Lake City, your meals on the tour, fuel, and any extras not mentioned above. A simple $500 non-refundable tour deposit is all that's needed to confirm your spot on this great adventure. Spots are very limited so reserve yours now before this tour sells out.
If you are joining us from out of town, you will want to fly into Salt Lake City on the afternoon of September 20th as we will be staging this ride out of the BMW Motorcycles of Utah dealership.

Arrive in Salt Lake City, set up our bikes, spend the night in a hotel and sleep well for an early departure the next morning on your adventure.
DAY TWO - SEPTEMBER 21
You're headed out early up I-80 to Evanston where you’ll leave the pavement and hit the dirt! You’ll conquer 80-90 miles of the UTBDR route as you prepare to find the right spot for camping this evening.
DAY THREE - SEPTEMBER 22
After a beautiful night camping around the Wolf Creek summit, you’re back on the trail headed to Wellington. You'll travel approximately 130-140 miles on day two of the tour. Rest well (and eat well) this evening, and stay in a hotel to get ready for day four!

After a good night’s sleep you’re off towards Dewey for an evening of camping just south of I-70. This is a pretty big day so you'll conquer 177 miles on our quest for the perfect, scenic camping spot. Sleep well tonight because tomorrow is Moab day!
