ABOUT ADVENTURE RIDERS

Dale & John

DALE: A life-long rider with more than a few bikes in his possession. Hard pressed to name a favorite it might be the KTM 690 Adventure, but he won’t turn down a well tuned KLR either. Dale can make just about any bike pull into a wheelie, take a jump, or cross a deep ravine. He is a great teacher when it comes to coaching someone through rider advancement. Outside of riding Dale has lots of experience in business, including being a former restaurant owner/operator. His family includes his lovely wife, two kids, and always a few dogs !

THE ADVENTURE BEGINS WHEN YOU DECIDE TO GET UP AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. WE ALL WOULD LOVE TO DO THIS OR THAT, BUT ONLY A HANDFUL WILL. WHEN IS YOUR TIME? TAKE A DAY OR JUST A MOMENT TO BE INSPIRED. LIVE YOUR LIFE TO FIND THE THINGS THAT INSPIRE YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR JOB, YOUR FRIENDS AND YES EVEN YOUR ADVENTURE BIKE.

 

WHEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY WILL YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO TAKE THAT MOMENT TO GET OUT AND EXPLORE? WE BELIEVE THAT IN EACH AND EVERYONE OF US WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR LIVES AND OTHERS...  WE CAN EXPLORE, WE CAN FILL THAT GAP AND BE INSPIRED. GETTING INTO THE BACK ROADS, THE OPEN AIR, THE FREEDOM OF THE MOTORCYCLE, AND THE COMPANY OF FRIENDS MAKES LIFE RICHER AND MORE REWARDING. 

ADVENTURE RIDERS LLC WAS BORN FROM THE CONVERSATION, WHY DO WE RIDE? AS SEEN IN OUR LOGO, THE ESSENCE WAS DISTILLED INTO THREE BASIC IDEAS… FREEDOM, FRIENDSHIP, AND BACKROADS. EVERYTHING WE HOST OR PARTICIPATE FALLS INTO THIS VISION. WE DON’T CLAIM TO BE EXPERTS (THERE ARE ALREADY OTHERS WITH THAT TITLE), BUT WE HAVE EXPERIENCE TO SHARE AND A PASSION FOR THE ADVENTURE & CHALLENGE. IN THE WORDS OF PETER FRAMPTON, DO YOU FEEL LIKE WE DO?!

JOHN: Many years adventuring with extensive experience camping, hiking, climbing, canoeing, logistic  etc. John started biking with Dale some years ago and was hooked! He also has worked in the construction field, where electrical and handy-man skills come in useful while working on bikes! Both John & Dale have owned and operated restaurants, giving them both an addiction to making good meals while camping or looking for new ‘greasy spoons’ while travelling. Currently JW teaches math and pre-engineering, is very involved in the family farm,  and has two adventure bikes in the arsenal: KTM690 and KTM 500EXC.
