Crooked Raven

Who are we?

Crooked Raven was started to present the history and beauty of the desert southwest to the public in what we consider the best way... from the back of an adventure motorcycle! Imagine what life was like...You will ride some of the very same trails ridden by the legends of the old west. See where famous and not so famous battles took place in the quest to tame the frontier.  Visit ghost towns and walk the same streets that once bustled with the day to day lives of gamblers, outlaws and lawmen.The occasional roar of gunfire, now silent... View ancient native rock art and cliff dwellings that predate the arrival of the earliest settlers. Ruins of stage coach stations and long abandoned  graveyards await your arrival. Even more modern abandoned history can be seen in the form of decommissioned nuclear missile silos. Amazing nature is also close at hand; stacked rock formations, desert scrub or mountain pines, seasonal rivers, waterfalls and hand built dams. From paved highways or mountain twisties to barely visible mining roads covered in rocks and sand. No matter what your interest or riding ability, Crooked Raven can deliver a unique and memorable experience!
