Question The Mystery Ranch Preview Ride May 10-13, 2018

As many of you know 2017 was the 7th year for the Flying Monkey Adventure Rally (FMAR) and many of you have attended the event and watched it grow year after year. Some of you may even remember the "GeoMoto Adventure Rides" that I "Un"Organized for a couple years leading up to the FMAR. The GeoMoto Rides were much smaller with 10-15 riders and often venturing to areas that are difficult to get to on a 1200CC motorcycle. The entire experience was much more intimate and great friendships were formed.

In an effort to bring back these rides I am going to "Un"Organize a KLR650 ONLY in Southern Utah. The ride will be limited to 10 riders. The rides will start early and end late. Rides will be between 150 and 350 miles. We will ride All Day Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be a day to chill out or head home.

Now with all this said, the most exciting part of this ride will be that the 10 riders who attend will be the first adventure riders to camp out and spend time at The Mystery Ranch.

The Mystery Ranch is my own little piece of Adventure Bike Heaven and I will disclose the location only to the 10 riders who make it out. It is private and secluded and absolutely beautiful. Close enough to town to grab gas and beverages and far enough that no one can hear you scream. Just figure that you will be staying in Southern Utah near Zion National Park.

This is NOT a beginner ride. Riders must be comfortable riding sand and rocks and be able to pick up their bikes at least five times in a row while others laugh and take photos.

You also need to be comfortable camping, cooking your own meals and cleaning up after yourself.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested and I will add you to the list.

Thanks,
Jesse "GeoMoto"

Hi, this sounds like a great opportunity and I would be very interested. I have 40 years riding experience and should have no problem keeping up with you all. Would be riding up from the Phoenix area. Let me know if I qualify.

Awesome, really love that area. Explored it (Page, Zion, Byrce and Moab) a few years ago with the family but not on 2 wheels.
Looking forward to meeting you and the other lucky riders.
Thank you

Hey. Iím very interested in riding with you guys. Iíve got many years experience and have ridden all over the San Bernardino and Cleveland National Forest. Done the Mojave Rad, Tahoe redwoods, etc. If it helps Iím the kind of guy who is more likely to give others help then to need it myself.

Looking forward to seeing your routes and talking about rides in Utah and SoCal.

Hey Jesse,

Thanks for the invite. I almost feel obligated to go just for the nice description you've put together here.

I remember the good old days . . . riding in So UT . . . .won't ever forget them. The rides were great, the riders . . . not so much ;)

I won't be able to make it out even if I decided today that I want to go. I'm rustier than a 1978 KLR rear axle cotter pin.

I would like to say however, for anybody out there considering this ride, that Jesse puts on some of the best adventure tours in all of Southern Utah Always a good experience and you'll never feel unwelcome or be left behind. Jesse and the good peeps that go on these rides are a great bunch.

That said, I wish all you Flying Monkeys out there a safe and outrageously good time!

Peace out,
Sal Giambruno

Mystery Ranch?

!??! AKA Skinwalker Ranch ?!!?
www.jerrypippin.com/Paranormal_Mystery_Ranch.htm
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skinwalker_Ranch
National Institute for Discovery Science? They went broke investigating the phenomenon.

Events peaked in the 70's and 80's then calmed down for a while... never ceased.. and peaked again 10 or 15 yrs ago and are rising again the past couple years. Events go way way back into Native Indian Legend.

The background story used to write the 2013 sci-fi horror film Skinwalker Ranch. Should take a copy along!

LOL, interesting, however I was leaning more towards "The Lone Ranger and The Mystery Ranch" written by Fran Striker back in the 30s

Although my property has had some very odd things occur there.
