THE BEST MOTORCYCLE TOUR COMPANY
For the past three years, former Dirt Rider magazine editors Ken Faught and Mark Kariya, along with Jennifer Emig, have been working to build the world’s best ultimate-luxury dual-sport events. They have teamed up with some of America's best off-road riders to create what is unquestionably the most-exclusive rides in the most-scenic locations.
Although the focus is on 5-day/4-Night events, the talented crew also hosts two-day events, point-to-point adventure rides, training sessions, boot camps, and much more. We are contsatantly updating our schedule, so check out our website periodically to learn more about our upcoming rides.
OUR PREMIERE EVENT - PARK CITY 2022
Our highest-end ride takes place in the beautiful Park City region in Utah, and its the best of the best. Park City 2022 will be an experience that will overwhelm the senses, tantalize the imagination and provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This ride is an exclusive 4-night, 5-day luxury outing for up to 13 riders. 7 spots are available at $9,950 & 6 spots at $7,350. These are high-end adventures, designed for riding enthusiasts; the price tag is indicative of the level of service and riding that you can come to expect. (That price does not include a bike or transportation to the event. We encourage our customers to ride their personal street-legal dual-sport bikes, but we do have several rental KTMs for those who really need a bike.)
For this ride , we plan to include some fun in a helicopter, incredible sightseeing, riding tips from our staff and celebrity riders, along with photos and video of your adventure. That’s right, the award-winning Mark Kariya and Ken Faught—names you've seen in magazines like Dirt Rider, Dirt Bike, Cycle News and Racer X for over 25 years—will be shooting photos of each rider to create memories. It’s one of the many reasons this will be the number one off-road motorcycle tour in the United States and one of the top 10 dirt-bike tours in the world.
"Mark, Destry and Ken are some of the most-dedicated people in the sport."

Private & Shared Room Options
Each participant will have his (or her) own room, or shared room (if opting for a discount), inside this massive four-story “log cabin” which will serve as our base camp. It’s more like a luxurious mini-resort with an indoor pool, hot tub, game room, chef’s kitchen, etc. It sits on over 10 acres and is able to sleep 60 people, but we plan on having 1/3 of that, including our staff. This is an ultra high-end adventure and all rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Oh yeah, there are also 16 restrooms!
"The best crew out there. No doubt this will be an incredible adventure!"
~Ty Davis | Multi-time Baja 1000 winner and off-road legend

Medium skill level
Our goal is to create an amazing experience for all, and we have worked diligently to find the perfect balance of riding and off-bike enjoyment. Mark Kariya and Ken Faught are arguably the two most-traveled professional off-road motorcycle journalists in the world. They have done off-road motorcycle tours in Peru, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Senegal, and Chile. Separately, they have ridden in 40 of the United States as well as Australia and several countries in Europe.

“As a professional dirt-bike racer, I guess I’ve become best known lately for riding any type of race, from Supercross to extreme enduros like Erzberg to flat track to hill climbs. So, hearing about the luxury dual-sport tours that Speed & Sport Adventures plans definitely interests me since it’d be nice to ride and just take in the scenery then bench race with the guys later. That's why I became one of the owners.”
~ Ryan Sipes | International Six-Days Enduro (ISDE) Overall Winner
"Now that I’m cutting back from racing full-time, I can definitely see myself on one of the Speed & Sport Adventures rides. I don’t think anyone’s ever done anything to this level, and the crew behind it is full of legends who’ve been very successful in the industry."
~ Kailub Russell | 8-time GNCC Champ / ISDE World Trophy Winner / Racing Legend
“I’ve been racing for a long time, and it seems like Ken Faught and Mark ‘Kato’ Kariya have been around almost as long. Their work in the magazines has always been outstanding and with their combined experience in events and rides, the Speed & Sport Adventures dual-sport tours are sure to be awesome"
~ Paul Krause | Former Red Bull KTM Dakar Rally Rider / Team Green Kawasaki Racer
“Though I made my living playing basketball, motorcycles was my first love, part of me always wanted to race motorcycles and I naturally read all the magazines. I feel like I know Ken Faught and Mark Kariya through their work in those magazines, and with guys like Destry Abbott, Grant Langston and others, the Speed & Sport Adventures dual-sport tours sound awesome and I’m looking forward to participating in them."
