Ben York is the newest member of the 106 West team. Ben was born in the flatlands of Kansas and started riding dirt bikes at around age 10.  In 1997 he hiked the Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango (500 miles) and immediately relocated to the San Juan mountains. While living in Durango he was a raft guide on the Animas river and discovered “motorcycle camping”, before we all agreed to call ourselves adventure riders. We are happy to have Ben's expert knowledge on hand for our tours.

You definitely lived up to the 106* West Adventures motto and took the road less traveled, some of the best roads I have had the pleasure to ride a bike on. I highly recommend 106* West Adventures to anyone looking for that little bit extra from there bike tour through the USA.

  • positive review  My partner and I have just done the Mountains and Canyons tour with John and we LOVED it! John organised everything so expertly and looked after us really well during our time with him. The accommodation was great and the riding was awesome. I had years of road riding under my belt but no off road experience so was nervous to begin with, but John gave me tips and advice along the way and I got the hang of it with his support. John's knowledge of the routes, trails, wildlife, history and geology of the areas we rode through was second to none and he was able to adapt and personalise our routes each day depending on weather conditions and things we wanted to do and see along the way. John was great company and we really enjoyed spending our tour with him. The roads and trails were amazing and we saw the most beautiful, breathtaking landscapes through Colorado and Utah. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 106 West to anyone wanting an amazing, well organised yet flexible adventure riding experience with an expert guide - Thank you John
