    We are going to run the whole MABDR in July towing our Turtleback trailer, just wanted to see if anyone has actually run it or parts of it yet. I have done the COBDR and AZBDR on a motorcycle and this one seems way more tame than those. Thanks-

    Yes we did. It was awesome. But... you could do the whole thing in 2wd with a decent set of tires. The scenery was amazing.

    Yeah a lot of the "BDR" routes are not technically challenging by any means, at least in this neck of the woods. Doing my own route in bald eagle state forest soon, was wondering if you came across any fun technical stuff.

    I sure have, just completed this route mid October on my Africa Twin over 6 days. Defiantly not technical, even the "expert" section is basic in a truck or bike. But plenty of vistas and adventure to be had on the entire route!

    It’s pretty easy. I’ve done it on a motorcycle.
