This guided motorcycle ride is an exclusive event for a few dozen riders. This is a high-end event, and the its only $3295-3995 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 2024, The Bucket List Ride will include amazing scenery and some riding tips from champion racer 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, fourth time out.

“Such a talented group of people working on an amazing adventure.” 

Justin Shantie —Adam Cianciarulo’s Factory Monster Energy Kawasaki mechanic

So, who will attend this event? We expect an eclectic group of business owners, executives, doctors, lawyers, celebrities and serious fans of the sport.

"No one knows adventures like these guys!"

 “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!

-Craig Thompson - Owner, SRT


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."
