Several of us rode the MABDR 3 years ago. We started in Abingdon Va and ended in Wellsboro Pa. It took about 5 days, and accommodations throughout were not hard to come by. Most (but not all) of the legs could be done on a Goldwing; fire roads and dual-track stuff. There are a couple challenging areas in the route which will hold your attention (Poe Paddy Road in central PA). Most of us had 60/40 tires and they were fine. Overall it’s a GREAT way to get into backcountry riding.
