This was an epic ride - 2017- April 28, 29 and 30th ride. 3 days of great sights, trails, and comradery. I can ride petty decent, as I was a past MX Pro, raced a few Baja's, and have been on many a big epic rides. The trip was worked out perfectly, ride times, breaks, lunches and dinners, chase truck, meeting spots, sleep overs, etc. The pace altered to match what was good for the group, with plenty of check-ins. You really feel a part of the group and connected. There are always issues that you encounter with a ride of this magnitude, and we had some come up, but all were solved with helpful intentions. This is one big reason to do these huge rides with a knowledgeable leader and with a tour company. You are going into the wilderness, huge vast sections on land, doing big mileage, and you want a smooth adventure. Mapping this out yourself would take you days and you would already have to know the area, trails and sights. Good luck on all that. I will be back with these guys again, as I know it will be epic and smooth adventure. I can't recommend the Coyote Adventure Tours enough.
As a rider, I have had the privilege of following Steve Walker on many off-road motorcycle adventures over the years and I must say he is an expert guide as well as a very understanding leader. I do not share near the skill set that Steve does in his riding, yet he was very patient with me as well as instructional. He understood my needs and planned for them in our routes. The challenges he provided were both exciting and difficult, yet well within my skill level. The thing that sticks out in my mind the most when riding with Steve is that just as you become comfortable in the route you are on, he presents you with a dramatic change the demands your focus once again. His routes are never dull or ordinary. I fully recommend Coyote Trail Adventures for your next trip, if you like challenges and are open to excitement!
Steve Walker has been the course designer for our annual charity event held in the Spangler OHV area for over 8 years now. He has presented our group with many fantastic adventures, to which many of our riders still speak of today. He takes you on trails that are fun, challenging and often times awe inspiring. His knowledge of the California desert riding areas is second to none and his ability to find areas most might miss is uncanny. Our group of riders has grown from 75 when Steve and I took it over to over 220 participants who eagerly look forward to following Steve’s path.
I am a pretty new rider, Steve and Jen had a great amount of patience, guidance and advice as our day progressed. I was also able to observe a bit of what the advanced groups were doing. Very impressive group! Traveling with the pros will definately enhance all of your future rides!
We had an outstanding 3 day ride with 8 riders and one chase member from Mojave to Paniment Springs into Death Valley and ended in Torona. This is why I ride, to explore and discover history. Steve Walker has laid out the last few Lost Coyotes Dual Sport events and is a true motorcycle enthusiast. He may be a pro level rider but his passion to share the adventure with others lets him enjoy the ride at anyone's skill level and will probably help develope better riding techniques for anyone willing to learn. Get a few friends together and give him a call. He will set up an adventure you will not soon forget.
Great people! Great riding! Everyone always has a huge smile on their faces!
Death Valley Ride Weekend I just got home from a 3 day tour with Steve Walkers Coyote Trail Adventures . We rode 450 miles of desert from Pearblossom all the way to Panamint and it was spectacular. Steve stops and points out historical areas and natural points of interest along the way which for me is one of the highlights of the trip. Not having to worry about fuel and meals and lodging which was handled by Jennifer Walker throughout the ride was great . The skill level of the riders was matched to the trails we rode by Steve so everyone had a great time . I can't wait for the next ride!
Last weekend I had the opportunity to ride with Steve and Friends. The trip was awesome for this "Old Timer". Steve and Jenn took care of our every need. Jenn and Lea provided chase responsibilities and served up some awesome lunches. Steve, John Sides and Gil Busick provided extra support for me during the tough times and I especially thank them for the understanding and support. So for those of you thinking about doing an extended ride through some of the most beautiful country in the world and may not think you are up to it, look to Steve for help and assistance. He and his team made my trip the "Ride of my Life" this past weekend.
Dear Steve and Jenn, Thank you for taking me out riding Saturday. I had a blast and feel more confident on my bike. As a new rider I really appreciate your patience and encouragement. You are both very kind and excellent teachers. You're a great team! I felt very welcome. Looking forward to working up to being able to do a 1 day ride with a group with you guys. Thanks for a great experience!
