Exceptional service and quality of instruction. We will highly recommend you. Thx much.

BK Lam

Saturday drills were excellent. Good balance of challenging but not overwhelming. Coaches were knowledgeable and very personable.

Dan Fiedler

Very good balance between off bike discussion, on bike practice, and breaks. It was a hot day on Saturday and I felt the pace was very good to keep everyone engaged and not too fatigued.

Darcy Schaffer

This was a very challenging course. I still have a lot to work on. I am still going down on my bike, off road to often. The course gave the confidence to try off roading in my motorcycle. I think it is more mental with me.

Jeremy Eirich

The ability to do the drills and then stop and talk about things was great. The instructors were top notch: knowledgeable and very personable.

Yes you can! You'll still get two days of coaching by our experienced guides, but on your own motorcycle.

And you still get a RIDE Adventures shirt and some SWAG.

Yes. The techniques and skills we practice in our off-road training can be applied to any motorcycle. However, we do require that your motorcycle be street legal, and have the capacity to drive 100 miles between fuel stops. We will be riding on public roads to get to different locations. We also request that your motorcycle be equipped for off-road riding.

Yes. While most of our rental bikes are twin cylinder adventure bikes, which bike you choose to ride for fundamentals and skills development should be more about 'which bike fits you,' than what matches our fleet.

Yes, we have several riders do this. It's a great way to save $150 on the price of renting a bike just for your own ride.

Just be sure to indicate which extra dates you'd like the bike rental to be for. Our training locations are surrounded by great dual sport routes, and you have the option to take advantage of those opportunities to work on your skillset and enjoy the surroundings.

This information will be provided upon confirmation of a reservation. We'll have emails that go into details where we'll meet and what you need to bring.

If you rent a bike from our fleet you'll get a Giant Loop Tank Bag. It can hold your lunch, water, and documents.
