About the event

Off road skills can be useful even if you are not interested in becoming a dirt rider, because sometimes you find dirt in unexpected places. If our training helps you avoid one unintentional dismount, then the savings you get from not having to repair your bike will pay for the class. And as an additional bonus: it's a recognized fact that dirt skills improve your street riding. So, speaking of dirt, ponder this: Many of our National Parks have some of their most incredible natural wonders at the end of a dirt road. Let's use Death Valley National Park as an example. Death Valley is America's second largest national park, but it sports only 150-miles of paved roads, while there are over 1100-miles of dirt roads. Imagine actuality, almost all of Death Valley's most incredible views and natural wonders are 10 to 30-miles into the back country on rough, dirt roads. And most of our National Parks are similar.

For additional perspective, consider this fact: more than 95% of the world's roads are unpaved. And just to prove the point here are a few statistics from some of the great places in the world to visit.

The U S has more than a third of its infrastructure unpaved. We have about 4.5 million miles of roadways in the U.S. and nearly 1.3 million miles of dirt roads and trails. Who says there’s no place to ride?

In our "Intro to Adventure" program you will learn the top five mistakes all street riders make in the dirt. We'll teach you a series of "building-block" skills which will get you comfortable with the basics of riding the dirt roads of the world.


  • An introduction to dirt riding techniques and the top mistakes that “street riders” make when they’re “off road”.
  • Body position for effective off-road riding
  • Throttle, brake, and clutch techniques (requires more finesse than street riding).
  • Weight-shift techniques for steering.
  • Balance techniques
  • Turning technique using counterbalancing.
  • Obstacle avoidance.
  • How to control front and rear wheel skids.
  • Hard acceleration technique on dirt and gravel.
  • Hill climbing & traction control.
  • Descending steep hills in a controlled manner.
  • How to ride in sand and gravel.
  • How to recover from a stall on a steep hill.
  • How to turn around, fully loaded on a steep hill.
