Heart of California ADV Tour

A BackCountry Discovery Route inspired adventure for those who love challenge

We characterize the Heart of California ADV Tour as ADVENTURE +. Novices will find this ride to have stretches that will demand all of your skill sets be put to work so we recommend that you have prior off road experience and training before taking this one on. Smaller dual purpose motorcycles will be most at home here.  Anything over 800cc is strongly discouraged. This tour is filled with stunning remote southern California scenery. Open deserts slam into mountains and canyons along the route. We’ll encounter remnants of American pioneering and Gold Rush history. Inspired by Backcountry Discovery Routes CA route and bits of the Nevada BDR, we’ve designed a ride that is logistically friendly and captures the essence of what has to be one of Americas most exciting adventure rides. We keep the groups small, so sign up early. MotoDiscovery also specializes in private customized tours. Contact us for more information.

How difficult is the riding?

This question is always asked and the answer is the same. The difficulty depends on your experience, physicality and spirit. Expect to encounter a variety of surfaces such as an occasional run of sand, some rocky sections, well maintained gravel and pavement. This tour is best suited for smaller motorcycles and for riders who have a higher level of off road experience and are seeking a challenge.

Will there be a support vehicle?

Yes. Our support vehicle will be with us for the duration of the event to carry your personal gear, tools, water and provide riders with the confidence to ride their own pace knowing we have your back. Non-riding participants (space is limited please give us a call to confirm) may also join us in the support vehicle.

Should I rent a bike or bring my own?

We highly discourage any bike over 800cc on this tour. Please contact us for more details if this pertains to you. You may benefit from riding a lighter-weight motorcycle where the weight and performance will not be so overwhelming – so renting should be considered.  Fear of dropping your bike is also inhibiting. Contact us to reserve your well-outfitted rental motorcycle.

Will you carry my gear?

Yes. Please pack in dust and waterproof duffels. We gladly carry gear but MotoDiscovery is not responsible for any loss or damage. 

How large are the groups?

Higher quality service results when groups are smaller. Group size is limited to eight (8) tour participants plus staff.

Can I bring my friend, wife, husband, etc?

Yes. We have a comfortable overland support vehicle that can accommodate a limited number of passengers in comfort and style. If you are planning to ride 2-up, please understand that this is not an event to learn to safely ride off-road with a passenger. Consider attending one of our Rider Training Tours if you would like to sharpen your off-pavement skills. 

Can I safely store my truck/van/trailer in Las Vegas during the ride?

Arrangements can be made to store your vehicle and trailer in Las Vegas at the rendezvous hotel. Please contact the hotel directly with information on your vehicle and trailer to confirm. 

What sort of gear will I need to bring?

This will be covered in our pre-trip communication emails along with other valuable preparation tips.  Keep in mind that space is limited in the support vehicle and gear can be stowed in Las Vegas at the hotel while on the tour. 

Will there be any tent camping?

There is no tent camping on this event.
