Two New Nevada Dual Sport Routes Released!

Choose either the north or south route for a dream dirt adventure in Nevada.

Published on 07.02.2018

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC is giving back to the adventure motorcycle community by rolling out a new Battle Born Ride Series that explores some of the best off-road routes in Nevada’s backcountry for Adventure Bike and Dual Sport riders. Carrying the moniker of Nevada’s nickname: the “Battle Born State” these epic North/South routes are ones for the bucket list!

With nearly 90,000 square miles of desolate land, Nevada is brimming with ghost towns, abandoned mines, wild animals and an unforgiving climate that sets the stage for epic adventure riding. RMATVMC spent three years developing routes and divided it into two halves (North & South) to make it easier to digest, and more accessible to a broader cross-section of riders. Their breakdown of the Nevada off-road routes include daily descriptions with suggested mileage, fuel/food/lodging options and insight into top points of interest.

Between videos documenting the route, companion blog posts, and detailed GPS tracks featuring easy and hard alternatives, these rides could not be more attainable or enticing for riders of all skill levels. Not to mention they are giving away the GPS tracks and all of this information for free! They even include helpful links to their blog posts that cover useful subjects like “3 Things You Didn’t Know You’d Need on an Adventure Ride”, “Tool Essentials for Adventure Motorcycle Riding” and “The Packing Guide for Adventure Motorcycle Riding.”

The northern route, Battle Born North begins and ends right on the Utah/Nevada border in a small town called Wendover. BBN traverses past old mining communities, out to Battle Mountain, up to the Idaho border and back down to the Bonneville Salt Flats where it intersects with its Southern counterpart.

Battle Born South begins in Payson, Utah at the RMATVMC headquarters making an equally epic loop featuring the House Mountain Range, Lunar Crater Back Country Byway and a summit of Telegraph Peak.

While both routes and sections are laid out in a structured format, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC encourages riders to mix and match to create adventure rides of their own. This can be either a starting point to begin planning or a fully detailed guide to riding Nevada. Looking for a plug and play experience? This is it!

With sparse pavement, varied terrain and a fair share of technical sections, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC stress that it is essential that you (and your bike) be appropriately equipped for off-road travel. Skid plates, proper riding kit, and knobby tires will ensure a much more enjoyable experience. Fuel range and weather are also essential aspects not to be overlooked with stretches of up to 220 miles between filling stations, and the possibility of severe weather any time of year.

These two companion routes offer a unique opportunity to get out and enjoy the rich history and rugged terrain of Nevada with a local’s knowledge and no real investment in planning. Check out the Battle Born video series to get your adventure juices flowing and then we dare you not to start looking at your calendar.
