TURN ON SOUND
THE BEST MOTORCYCLE TOUR COMPANY
For the past seven years, former Dirt Rider magazine editors Ken Faught and Mark Kariya, have been working to build the world’s best VIP dual-sport, adventure bike, dirt bike, enduro and off-road tours and 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, and they are all guided motorcycle tours.
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 constantly updating our schedule, so check out our website periodically to learn more about our upcoming rides.
2024 EVENT SCHEDULE
We kick off the year with one dirt bike tours on our schedule and will be adding more in the coming months.
PARK CITY DUAL-SPORT RIDE - AUGUST 25-29, 2024

Prices range from $3295 to $3995 depending on accommodations. This ride typically has several guest riders. In 2021 it included Guy Cooper and Grant Langston, 2022 included Guy Cooper and Destry Abbott, those two were joined in 2023 by Rodney Smith and Mason Klein.
THE BUCKETLIST RIDE - PARK CITY 2024
Our Bucketlist ride takes place in the beautiful Park City region in Utah, and its one of the very best rides in the United States. Park City 2024 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, and cost ranges from $3295 to $3995 per person. This is a high-end adventure, designed for real off-road riding enthusiasts. Although we encourage our customers to ride their personal street-legal dual-sport bikes, we do have several rentals for those who really need a bike.
For this event , which is more like a dirt bike vacation, we plan to include intermediate- and expert-level 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.

"This is going to be unreal! No doubt this will be one of the best motorcycle adventures ever."
~ Ashley Fiolek | 4-time AMA Women's Motocross Champ
“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. We are quickly making a name for ourselves as the best enduro tours in the United States."
~ 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."
