Touratech-USA will be hosting a planning seminar at South Sound BMW on March 24th, 2012. The seminar will provide you with helpful information and resources for planning a motorcycle trip on the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route. Topics will include: best time of year, road conditions, navigation, bike set-up, how to pack and more. Each attendee will receive a sample packing list and BDR decal.
The event will also include a Q&A session with some of the guys from the BDR organization.
Additional info is available HERE.
What a terrific idea! Thanks for doing this, TT. Yet the WABDR is a national attraction, if not international. I hope there will be a way for the national and even global ADV community to participate interactively.

Our group is in the process of planning a tour of the WABDR. Being able to participate online, as mentioned above would be a great way for us out of state riders to gain valuable local knowledge.

Tony & Mike, Check out the ADV Rider strings on the WABDR and UTBDR Routes. Those are the most active places for the community to discuss planning, preparing the bikes, what to bring, current conditions and more.

This will be a great event for all dual sport riders, new or veteran. Whether you plan on riding the WABDR or not. Come learn how the pro's do it!

Great event - good information on GPS selection and use, and excellent presentations on bike setup and tips for riding the route.
