Frequently Asked Questions

  • What skills will I learn in class?

    • We'll start to make sure everyone is on the same page with motorcycle controls and how to operate them and then move onto clutch control. From there we'll practice sitting and standing posture for off road riding with drills designed to get students familiar with operating the motorcycle while standing. Each exercise builds off the previous ones to grow confidence while challenging new skills. By the end of the day you'll be able to stand, counterbalance, shift weight, use your feet to control the motorcycle, ride over obstacles, and traverse hills. All the basic skills you need to tackle off road riding.

  • How long are classes? What does a typical class look like?

    • Classes meet up at 8:30AM for gear and motorcycle check and the class starts at 9:00AM. Typical classes run 6-7 hours with a lunch break in the middle. We'll spend the majority of the time practicing new skills on a closed range. After the closed range exercises, we'll go out on a short group ride to explore the park and get you familiar with riding some simple trails.
