What you'll do

Motorcycle Tour for Adventure Motorcycle Riders! This is a Dual Sport Motorcycle Ride. You will need to have a valid motorcycle license. 35% off for groups of 2 people or more. We'll spend the day Riding street, Adventure or dual sports bikes near Palm Springs/Joshua Tree or by the beautiful Mountains and deserts (on or off-road depending on your preferences and skill level). For those who want to go off-road, we will head out on trails toward and/or through Joshua Tree National Park (or nearby mountains). These trails are hard to find. I know them very well and it will be a lot of fun if you like off-roading (and not seeing any one at all for an entire day). Be prepared to see breathtaking landscape and have fun on the bikes. Please bring your motorcycle gears (Helmet and boots at least) as I might not have Anything your size.
For those who prefer to stay on the road, there are hundreds of miles of scenic roads nearby to discover.

My schedule is flexible. Contact me for alternate dates. Bring your motorcycle gears and a warm outfit for the morning and the evening rides.

I’m an ex software engineer/race car driver who early retired here in beautiful Southern California Coachella Valley. I ride dual-sport bikes almost everyday here in our Coachella Valley, high Desert Valley, low deserts, Joshua Tree park, Mojave Reserve and high mountains. I found numerous trails and places worth discovering and I would be happy to share my discoveries with people who won't believe what they will see. I can provide a unique experience for people who would appreciate a different kind of Tour of Southern California.

My husband and I were taking a trip to Palm Springs and when I saw Terry’s experience I knew my husband would love it! Straight from the beginning he worked with me to find availability on the day I requested and open communication the entire time. The morning of I dropped my husband off and Terry took him on a great journey. My husband finished his trip with some new friends and really enjoyed himself. Thank you Terry!

I’m a woman in my 50s and I’ve been riding motorcycles all my life. But I’m only 5 ft tall so I’ve always owned low-seated bikes in order to reach the ground. So there are lots of bikes I can’t ride (especially dirt bikes). I told Terry I wanted to do the tour, but that I couldn’t ride any of the bikes he was offering. And to my surprise, he managed to acquire a Yamaha XT225, which is the smallest street-legal dirt bike they make. So I signed up! When I got there, he completely outfitted me in protective gear, watched me ride up and down his street to make sure everything was okay and off we went! It was a fun day in beautiful country up near Idlewild (Joshua Tree was way too windy that day). I took a minor spill (my own fault), but all the protective gear he bundled me up in did it’s job of protecting me well! He really understands that it’s only fun if your safe and smart - and he is both!! Thanks for and awesome day, Terry!! Your new friend, Amy

I booked a private trip with Terry for my boyfriend and he had an absolutely wonderful time. Terry was very knowledgable and had great life stories to share along the journey. My boyfriend felt safe and loved going through all the different terrain. Thank you!

Terry took us on a wonderful day of motorcycle adventures through some gorgeous places around Palm Springs. He was a great guide, host and for my friend- teacher. As expected he knew about spots off the beaten path and took us there to enjoy the beauty of the trails. He’s a GREAT rider and made good recommendations on spots. Thanks Terry for a great day.

This experience was nothing short of Amazing. Terry is an excellent guide and teacher. I had not ridden in a while, a long while. First Terry took me to a training area so I could get the feel back and taught me different techniques to deal with the diverse terrain. This was extremely helpful as it allowed me to experience the actual ride with more ease. We went through some incredible backcountry and there was about an hour where we did not see any other people. We had an incredible ride from the valley down below up to Joshua Tree and back around. I would highly recommend this if you are thinking about exploring some amazing terrain. Terry was excellent.

We had a terrific time exploring the deserts and the mountains. Went from desert to snow within a few hours. The dual sport experience was really unique riding from road to off road and back. Terry’s bikes were super well maintained and he was such a cool dude to hangout and ride with! Highly recommend!
