The Ruta Aventura crossing the Copper Canyon region to the Sea of Cortez and ferrying to the Baja Peninsula is a blend of paved and unpaved roads. For this reason, we suggest the minimum displacement be 400 cc or greater. Large adventure motorcycles demand skills and physicality in line with the weight and performance of the bike. Tires should at minimum be 50/50 (on and off road). One should have at least some prior off road experience and physicality. This is more than just a ride. Expect to learn of, and gain a deep appreciation for, the natural wonder of the region as well as the history and culture of its inhabitants. We encourage participating in one of the MotoDiscovery Adventure Rider Training Tours to tune your skills. You are also encouraged to call MotoDiscovery for consultation to determine if this is the right ride for you.
This tour makes a superb platform for MotoDiscovery to design your own private custom riding event. Go to our Custom Tour Questionnaire today and let us build the perfect tour for you and your friends.

Batopilas. For many years it was a challenging descent into a chaparral canyon to this old mining village dating back to the 17th century. Today it is nearly paved all the way however it is as stunning a ride as ever. We just don’t get as dirty!
