About the BDR Angels Journey
The goal of the BDR Angel Journey is to raise awareness and money for Motorrad Angels. Chad Warner and Dennis Godwin will endeavor to complete all 8 BDRs in one month. With help from assigned BDR Captains and teams who will help with logistic and occasionally become riding partners on each BDR, starting at the northern point of the MABDR Chad and Dennis will work their way down the route until completed. From there they will make their way to the norther point of the COBDR. After finishing, the next route will be UTBDR, then NMBDR, AZBDR, NVBDR, IDBDR and finally the WABDR. If the CABDR is launched prior to the scheduled BDR Angel Journey, it will be included as part of the adventure.
Meet the Riders
For nearly 40 years riding has been a part of Chad’s life. From racing motocross in junior high and high school, to yearly motorcycle adventures with friends, adventure riding is an absolute passion of his. Chad will be the organizer and lead rider on the BDR Angel Journey, and with more than two dozen Iron Butts to his name, he has a great chance of finishing all 9 BDRs in one month, which has never been attempted before.
Dennis was a 2016 BMW Motorrad GS Trophy rider representing the United States in Thailand. He has been riding on-road and off-road for 40+ years, and is another Iron Butt rider who will be the riding partner joining Chad Warner on the BDR Angel Journey. Dennis also works closely with Tom Palmer and Motorrad Angels combining his passion of riding with a dedication to help others.
The Backcountry Discovery Routes
Backcountry Discovery Routes is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization whose mission is to establish and preserve off-highway routes for dual-sport and adventure motorcycles. Through education, advocacy, and promotion of responsible motorcycle travel, BDR seeks to preserve backcountry motorcycling opportunities for generations to come.
BDR works with the forest service, land managers, and agencies responsible for public land, to keep trails and remote roads open for motorcycling. Through careful investment of funds and resources, BDR is able to map new routes, provide free GPS tracks and advice, create photo and video archives of the routes, and educate the motorcycle community about managed travel on public lands. Backcountry Discovery Routes’ goal is to create a new Backcountry Discovery Route each year for the Adventure Community. For each BDR route, a full-length documentary film, a Butler Motorcycle Map, and free GPS tracks are produced. BDR works with motorcycle dealers across the U.S. to organize BDR film premieres and training seminars.
