The Ultimate Off-Road Adventure
Special Guests Destry Abbott and Guy Cooper
SEPT 3-7, 2023
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 adventure, and we are ready for our third-annual event. Park City 2023 — The Bucket List Ride will be an ultra-exclusive motorcycle adventure in Northern Utah with Guy Cooper and Destry Abbott. Everything about this ride is special, from the world-class guest riders, and support staff, all the way to the log home which has been called one of the Top 15 Log Cabins in the World.
This ride is designed for a B-level riders, although good C riders will find it challenging and fun, and A-level riders won't be bored. Park City 2023, 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 ride for 18, yes 18 people only. This is a high-end event, and the its only $3950 per person. We want people to ride their own street-legal dual-sport bikes since that's where most people are comfortable, although we can help arrange bikes if necessary. Park City 2023, The Bucket List Ride will include amazing scenery and some riding tips from champion racers Destry Abbott and Guy Cooper, 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, 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 the number one on- and off-road motorcycle tour in the United States and one of the top 10 dirt bike tours in the world, third time out.

WHY PARK CITY?
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 Park City."
