Wyoming Documentary by Sterling Noren
Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route (WYBDR) is a documentary directed by Sterling Noren and produced by BDR, an adventure motorcycling nonprofit, in collaboration with the Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation and BMW Motorrad USA.
Since 2010, BDR has developed 11 interstate trails for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel. The latest and most remote of them all is the Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route. This should come as no surprise if you know Wyoming well; the state is the least populated in the U.S., so it’s home to some of America’s wildest territory.
In the film, the BDR team will take you on a wild journey across five mountain ranges reaching up to 11,000 feet in elevation, two major rim escarpments, high-desert terrain, winding forest roads, and vast rocky landscapes — all the while navigating public dirt roads and primitive double-track.
The nearly 1,000-mile stretch spans the whole state, from Montana in the north all the way down south to Colorado. Almost all legs of the trail require technical riding, so keep that in mind if you decide to try it yourself.
The Documentary Team
The documentary features the BDR crew and special guests Jocelin Snow, former BMW International GS Trophy competitor and AMA racer, and Wendy Naessens of the BMW US Rider Academy.
Together, they take the first-ever journey on the WYBDR, testing their riding skills and exploring little-known but stunning corners of the Wyoming backcountry. The team isn’t always alone on their journey — they have several encounters with some of the wild creatures who live in the area.
Not only is the documentary available to watch for free on YouTube, but it also comes with a number of perks and additional resources, including:
- Travel resources
- Free GPS tracks
- A digital map
- A printed waterproof map
- Professional photographs

One of the best things about the Wyoming backcountry documentary on motorcycle trails is that it doesn’t show you the usual tourist hot spots. The BDR team traverses many less-traveled areas and historic mining towns.
BDR’s partners at the Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation hope that this will attract nature lovers and motorcycle enthusiasts to local rural settlements and make a positive economic impact on these communities.
