Quien Sabe Ride – May 18-24, 2014

 A seven-day extreme adventure ride in the Utah Backcountry.

Quien Sabe Ride 2014

If extreme adventure riding is your flavor, then the “Quien Sabe Ride” will appeal to you. This ride will test your skills and mental toughness out in the remote areas of the Utah desert. Yes riding friends, we are headed for the Utah Backcountry Discovery Route (UBDR) and Canyonlands!

“Quien Sabe” is a Spanish phrase for, “Who Knows.” That phrase best typifies this adventure ride because we will be riding into the remote and lonely Utah desert. Who knows what challenges and obstacles we will encounter and overcome.  Who knows what detours we will have to adjust to on the Quien Sabe Ride.

The Quien Sabe Ride is a seven-day ride where we will carry all our gear (no support vehicle). We will tent camp in remote locations as well as some campgrounds. We will have a nice set of GPS tracks for the ride and a well-planned route, but there will be no daily mileage requirements. We will enjoy our mornings around camp, departing around 9am and making camp each day around 4-5pm.

The goal is to experience some amazing riding, but also to have time around campfires to enjoy each other’s company and camaraderie.  Riding is where great friendships are built for life.

The appropriate bike for this trip is a plated, street-legal, dual-sport motorcycle that is in the 250-350lb range, 450cc-650cc, that can carry all the camping gear needed and is able to tackle rough trails.  Examples would be a Honda XR650, a Suzuki DR650, a Yamaha WR450, KTM500, etc….Expert level riders should be able to tackle the ride on larger bikes like a KTM990ADV.
