I've had the BRP since new in 04, back then I de-smogged it and did the "Dave's Mod" to the carb. now I've gotten in with a couple of chaps and we're talking about doing the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route (https://ridebdr.com/WABDR) this early summer. So with a little bit of cashed-out bitcoin, I'm finally doing some upgrades! Acerbis tank, FMF pipe and jetting kit, a skid plate and a rack for the back. That's what brought me to this forum, after reading a bunch of smart/experienced/funny peeps out here y'all have answers to any question a bloke could ask. Anybody done the route? Any tips for a 600 mile off-road bike ride?
