The Utah Backcountry Discovery Route, or UTBDR, is a scenic driving route across the state of Utah, from Arizona to Idaho, for dual-sport adventure motorcycles and 4x4 vehicles. This 871 mile long south-north route uses mostly un-paved backroads and will pass through a number of iconic locations including Moab, Valley of the Gods, the Abajo and La Sal Mountain Ranges, Nine Mile Canyon, and the northern Wasatch Mountains.
This exciting documentary by Curbsyde Productions gives you an in-depth look into the creation and first expedition of the UTBDR. Follow a group of riders on large adventure touring motorcycles including KTM 990 Adventures, BMW F800GS’s and a BMW R1200GS, tackle some of the toughest terrain while traversing the beautiful Utah backcountry.
This video shows a good route across Utah. I have ridden much of it. I would have chosen a slightly different route in a few places but their choices are good too. These guys have a good time and offer good advice for ADV riders. It's fun to watch but they aren't particularly good riders so I cringed a few times and said out loud, "No, don't do that!" So, its not like watch Marc Coma racing the Dakar rally, but more like everyday guys out having a good time. Worthwhile.
