Dust, Dirt & Desert – USA
If you want to be a part of this recon tour, join us in April 2018.
April 2019. Probably 10 riding days. Stay tuned.
A once in a lifetime opportunity to see and experience something really special.
We have all seen the movies from the Wild West with Cowboys and Indians, this is your chance to feel the desert wind, see the fly-weed tumble across the road while riding thru one of many deserted ghost towns. On motorcycle we’ll come close to nature and you’ll be amazed of the variation the desert has to offer, fifty shades of brown.
The highlight of the trip is the yearly AltRider event called “Taste of Dakar”, here you’ll meet over a hundred like minded and listen to ex. Dakar Racer telling thrilling tails of the race.
As you’ll see we’ll rent bikes in LA and ride for 10 days all over Death Valley, Mojave Desert, Titus Pass and much more.
This trip will not only give you a taste of Dakar, it will give you a taste of so much more, this is the “Once in a Lifetime” trip you can and will do every year.
