So, it looks like we’ve sorted the logistics via text to get this ride going. Drey Dog rolled out of his place yesterday afternoon and camped at our buddy Zaniacs place in Moab. Drey is en route to my place today. He’s got a minor weather battle going on but conditions are improving.
Mo The Jack Muslim and Blurry Murray are meeting us in the morning and we’ll all roll out from my place. Mo and Blurry ride until Sunday. Drey and I keep going for an unknown amount of time. This ride will basically run through the month of September with some other characters joining in from time to time.
What we do:
Roll light on dirt bikes
No real destination in mind, just ride for days on end
Sleep under the stars. A hotel may be utilized only under dire circumstances which include (A) REALLY bad weather or (B) A complete meltdown of a riding partner who needs to regroup
Drink whiskey at night and in our coffee (Old Crow + coffee = croffee)
Tell the same stupid stories over and over every night because we forgot we told them the night before
Cook meat on the Adjustafork over the fire every night
Slander each other and anyone else we feel like
This is Adventure Rider Fundamentalism. This is camaraderie of the highest level known to us.
My steed is ready.
My big mod for this season is an auxiliary petcock for ease of lighting fires and transferring gas to others who run out. Price per gallon is steep when you’re out deep and I figure I’ll cash in. Not being able to easily get fuel out of the tank of these fuel injected machines is definitely something I needed to remedy.
I can't wait for this.
Now the term “Adventure Riding” has taken on a very wide definition encompassing everything from riding mopeds to Harleys on the pavement and sleeping in hotels. I have always kind of thought that “Adventure Riding” meant going off road and getting into remote spots you can only get to on a dirt bike. It involves camping in remote locations. It involves being self sufficient. It involves some chance or consequences, hence the feeling of adventure. Now, to each his own and call it what you want but since “Adventure riding“ is such a broad term these days, the sub-class term “Adventure Rider Fundamentalist“ (ADV-F) is being used to describe those riders who stick close to the roots. Kinda like the polygamist sect of Mormons here in Utah known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints (FLDS church) only the ADV-F aren’t really all that close to being saints. More like hoodlums, “Latter-Day Hoodlums” or something like that. Anyway, in this documentary we’ll be deeply exploring this off-shoot of ADV during our journey this fall, digging into this cult, understanding their beliefs and really getting to know what it is like to live that lifestyle.
F*ckin' love it man, can't wait for this to unfold. Good on you for taking the rest of the month to go do this @Joe Motocross. I'm heading out to our own desert for an 8-day stint, though not complete ADV-F like your crew.
Looking forward to following along and then catching up when I'm back on the grid
Keep the knobby side down and crow flowin'
We are heading to Utah Saturday to do some riding for the week. Doing a loop from Strawberry Reservoir down towards Mt. Pennell then out towards Green River and back to Strawberry.
Looking forward to this and all the shenanigans!!
Lose your tag?
Minimalist. No tag.
Finally..... a ride report with RIDING....
Out camping with the guys, had to post a pic of the adjusts over the fire
Looking forward to this @Joe Motocross
@Joe Motocross you fekking zealot!
Always harping on about ADV-F all the time like it's the One True Path; stinking up the great outdoors with no spare clothes; shamelessly flogging your telescoping-wiener-cooker-pitchfork-thing and bragging about the endless utility of what are essentially orange rubber belts; militantly shaming bikers who just seek a bit of comfort with their riding or who think a 600lb beluga can be ridden with anything approaching joy; visiting unheard of places in far off deserts with similarly fanatical muppets; and advocating for the unholy mixture of caffeinated and alcoholic drinks for breakfast...!
Yeah... carry on!
Not sure how I missed the coming of a Joe Motorcross report but, hell yeah! It makes me feel like I have gone soft with all the crap I bring on trips, but, hats off to the purists that are still rocking!
Yeah, it’s going down just about how @Osadabwa described it. Pretty predictable.
Things are getting loose.
WTF is Buuuurt doing???
