FAQs

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. 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. Our bikes also have the Quad Lock Smartphone base mounting system. But we don't have specific Quad Lock Smartphone cases, this you should source on your own.
