Have you ever wanted to ride on dirt but weren’t sure where to start? Look at a mountain while you’re out on a ride and and think, “I want to climb that”? If so, you might want to try adventure riding.
You may, like I did, feel a sense of anxiety when thinking about riding off onto scarecly traveled fire roads and trails all by yourself. What’s more, is you probably don’t yet have the proper skills to do so.
Even an experienced street rider needs a run down on maneuvering off road. Tips like positioning your weight back or forward during stops and accelleration can save you from a few wipe-outs. Brad Barker put together a great video of his experience in the RawHyde Adventure Motorcycle training school, followed by Expedition CV. It’s the second episode of his series, “The Ride of my Life”.
It started with skill building at the RawHyde Colorado training camp, moved on to intermediate training, riding to Base Camp Alpha… then onto a deep adventure ride through Death Valley with some of the most amazing views you’ll ever witness.
