MOAB DUAL-SPORT RIDE 2024
INFO & ITINERARY
March 21-25, 2024
LED BY LOCAL JIM RYAN OF DUAL SPORT UTAH
Since 2016, former Dirt Rider magazine editors Ken Faught and Mark "Kato" Kariya have been working to build the world’s best high-end, ultimate, dual-sport adventures, and we are ready to add Moab, Utah to our list of tours for 2024. We have partnered with Dual Sport Utah for a very special ride. This is a BLM-permitted ride led by owner Jim Ryan who has lived in Moab for over 20 years. Dual Sport Utah also has rental bikes available so you can fly into Salt Lake City or Grand Junction, Colorado,
This dual-sport tour is for intermediate-level riders who have an incredible sense of adventure and an appetite for fun. Moab 2024, a guided dirt bike tour, will be an experience that will overwhelm the senses, tantalize the imagination and provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This guided motorcycle ride is an exclusive event for up to a dozen riders. This is a first-class event, and the its only $1995 per person. We encourage people to ride their own street-legal dual-sport bikes since that's where most people are comfortable, but Dual Sport Utah also has bikes for rent for an additional $1000. The This Moab ride will include amazing scenery along with photos and video of your adventure. That’s right, the award-winning Ken Faught—a name you've seen in magazines like Dirt Rider, Dirt Bike, Cycle News, Australasian Dirt Bike and Racer X for over 25 years—will be shooting photos of each rider to create lasting personal memories for each participant. It’s one of the many reasons this will be one of the top off-road motorcycle tours in the United States and one of the top 10 dirt bike tours in the world, first time out.
“Such a talented group of people working on an amazing adventure.”

Participants in Moab 2024 will also be placed on special VIP priority list for future rides. That means they will have the first opportunity for Speed & Sport Adventures' next event, and if someone cancels, they will have an opportunity to bring a friend before we open it up to the general public.

“I have had Mark Kariya do the Team SRT photo shoot for the past five years and he is the perfect guy! He excels at getting the perfect shot when the race is on the line. I can’t wait to see him take this new Dual-Sport Adventure to a new level. He’ll make all of the riders look like Pros!

Our goal is to create an amazing experience for all, and we have worked to find the ideal balance to achieve that. 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 plus Australia and several countries in Europe.
"Although we love international travel, we wanted to create something that avoided the complication of needing a passport to have fun," Faught explains."Our goal is to make it simple for people to have the absolute best of the best, and we found that in Moab."
There are two options for riders to choose from for 2024:
$1995 if you bring your own bike
$2995 with bike rental and fuel.
