On the Eighth Day: A Solo Idaho BDR Adventure


Imagine a place with endless dirt roads piercing though some of the least populated regions in the lower 48 states. 

A place where Indians and outlaws once roamed. A place with no cities, but rather, outposts dotting a lonesome trail that starts in Canada and ends in the Nevada desert. 

Travel to a land that provides an opportunity to ride through the largest contiguous Wilderness in the lower 48 states. 

A land with ghost towns, abandoned homesteads and mines. 

A place where one can truly still get lost I found this all and more in Idaho. While the riding is not particularly challenging, unless remoteness scares you, the roads however, well… they are stupendous and seem to go on and on through a backbone of endless mountains. 

For me, this is my thing. A chance to ride solo, taste history and enjoy splendid scenery. Although I only managed to ride about half of the Back Country Discover Route, it only whetted my appetite to return. 

Hang on tight and enjoy the ride. ~GrizzLee

Three Days, Two Wheels, One GrizzLee - Full Feature


An aborted multi-day expedition turned into a fantastic three day ride up north of the border in British Columbia. Hey, "make hay while the sunshine's" is how the saying goes. When riding back country, one always has to be prepared to adapt and change plans based upon conditions. Great ride along East Harrison Lake over remote mountain passes (all on gravel/logging roads) to Lillooet via the Texas Creek road. Then I take you on a journey over Hurley pass to an abandoned town flooded by the dams in the Bridge River Complex. All fun and very beautiful.

Three Days, Two Wheels, One GrizzLee - Teaser Trailer

An aborted multi-day expedition turned into a fantastic three day ride up north of the border in British Columbia. Hey, "make hay while the sunshines" is how the saying goes. When riding back country, one always has to be prepared to adapt and change plans based upon conditions. Great ride along East Harrison Lake over remote mountain passes (all on gravel/logging roads) to Lillooet via the Texas Creek road. Then I take you on a journey over Hurley pass to an abandoned town flooded by the dams in the Bridge River Complex. All fun and very beautiful.

Full production coming soon.



Three Legged Horse

Picture of Lee Sr (my dad) on his 3 legged horse named Pepper. Accordign to my mum, he was about 20 years old at the time. Unfortunately, my dad passed away from cancer at age 36...

Always thought dad looked like Marshal Dillion form the TV Series Gunsmoke.

Cariboo Moto Trek Adventure - Movie

British Columbia has some of the finest country on the planet. The Cariboo Gold Country is another example of the splendor that illustrates that indeed British Columbia is "SUPERNATURAL". Join me, GrizzLee and fellow riding buddy, Farmer John, as we tour this fantastic country on our bikes. This production spans over the course of two exploratory treks. Join us in discovering that adventure is never far away and so is the scenery that is pleasing to, not only the eyes, but the soul as well. Abandoned gold towns, scenic rivers, mountains, lakes and wildlife are frosting on the cake. As always, it's the journey; not the destination that makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks for Riding Along,
~GrizzLee

Meet the New Girl

Meet Heidi. The newest girl in the ever growing stable of bikes found on the RubiKon Ranch

She's lean mean and sports all the latest bike tech including dynamic sports and enduro suspension modes, anti lock bracks, dynamic traction control, rain mode, enduro mode and enduro pro mode. She's a real sweety and a treat to ride.





Will Heidi replace my beloved Gretchen..


Only time will tell, but for the moment, Gretchen has the upper hand. She has a bigger fuel capacity, already fully farkled and most importantly... she has a nose for the north. She has been there so many times, all I have to do is hop on and she will lead the way. Fantastic bike.
