My partner’s partner, Nathan, introduced me to a YouTube channel called MotoTrek recently, which looks like a great place to learn skills and techniques related to off-road adventure riding. Bret Tkacs, the guy doing the instructing, gives clear overviews of the techniques and explains the basic physics involved. Check out this video of him showing how to tackle deep river rock. What he can do with a motorcycle is impressive stuff.

As you’re prepping for rides this spring and summer, it might be worth having a look at these adventure bike tips compiled by four-time Baja 1000 champion Quinn Cody for the website ADV Pulse. He covers planning, prep, gear, as well as riding tips. Good to know.

Expedition Portal just covered this video by a group called Backcountry Discovery Routes. Their goal is to preserve off-highway routes for dual-sport motorcycle travel. This video is about their trip through Colorado, though other routes are in development.

We just completed our own trip down the California Backcountry Discovery Trail (so named by the Forest Service), which I’ll be writing about in the coming weeks.
