We ride adventure bikes for the journey AND the destination. They enable us to get to places in the backcountry that most won’t or can’t. And once we’re there, the doors open wide for endless amounts of adventure.

For the first in our Paired Adventure Series, we’ve partnered with landscape Photographer, Seth Hamel, owner of Enlighten Photography. Based on the boundaries of Zion National Park, he’s been guiding and teaching landscape photography for the past 10 years. In addition to being a photographer, Seth happens to also be an avid off-road motorcyclist. He obsessively scours satellite imagery to find obscure landscapes, then jumps on his bike to explore them. Making him familiar with many off-the-radar locations that make you feel like an explorer. To have the place all to yourself, with camera in-hand, experiencing the wilds of Utah. That’s a special thing.

For those who are interested in improving their artistic and technical photography skills, this workshop will provide hands on, one-on-one customized instruction at the locations we photograph in order to help you capture amazing images, and have the skills to do so on your own in the future. If you’re looking to hear what other people are saying about the workshops with Seth, you can see reviews here.

For motorbike skills, you should be comfortable & somewhat efficient riding dirt roads. If you only have experience riding pavement, we highly recommend a class prior to the tour. If you take a class at Grit, you’ll also get 15% off your tour.

In an effort to capture the best lighting of the day, we'll be camping 3 of the 4 nights. Tents, cots, and chairs will be provided; all that's required is personal sleeping bag and pillows (which will be carried in the support vehicle).

Wednesday: Arrival in St. George

If you're renting one of our T700s, we'll spend some time getting you acquainted, set up, and comfortable. If you're riding your own bike, we'll do a quick walk through safety check and run through some brief riding techniques. We'll then all meet for introductions, ride expectations & dinner at 6pm.

Thursday - Saturday: Exploring southern Utah

Through a combination of camping and lodging, we'll ride to remote areas for epic landscapes and the photography workshop.

Sunday: Departure

Make our way back to St. George for lunch & goodbyes!
