Dale "Boots" McIntosh
Life-long rider with more than a few bikes in his possession. Hard pressed to name a favorite it might be the KTM 690 Adventure, but he won’t turn down a well tuned KLR either. Dale can make just about anybike pull into a wheelie, take a jump, or cross a deep ravine. He is a great teacher when it comes to coaching someone through rider advancement. Outside of riding Dale has lots of experience in business, including being a former restuarant owner/operator. His family includes his loveley wife, two kids, and always a few dogs !
JOHN "JW" WILBERS
Many years adventuring with extensive experience camping, hiking, climbing, canoeing, logistics, survivalism etc. John started biking with Dale some years ago and was hooked! He also has worked in the construction field, where electrical and handy-man skills come in useful while working on bikes! Both John & Dale have owned and operated restaurants, giving them both an addiction to making good meals while camping or looking for new ‘greasy spoons’ while travelling. Currently JW has two adventure bikes in the arsenal: The MIGHTY DR650 and the WR250R. In his outside life he is also a math & engineering teacher, cross country coach, and involved in farming.

ADVENTURE RIDERS LLC WAS BORN FROM THE CONVERSATION, WHY DO WE RIDE? AS SEEN IN OUR LOGO, THE ESSENCE WAS DISTILLED INTO THREE BASIC IDEAS… FREEDOM, FRIENDSHIP, AND BACKROADS. EVERYTHING WE HOST OR PARTICIPATE FALLS INTO THIS VISION. WE DON’T CLAIM TO BE EXPERTS (THERE ARE ALREADY OTHERS WITH THAT TITLE), BUT WE HAVE EXPERIENCE TO SHARE AND A PASSION FOR THE ADVENTURE & CHALLENGE. IN THE WORDS OF PETER FRAMPTON, DO YOU FEEL LIKE WE DO?!
