Got my S10 a few months ago and I'm struggling with the dirt road riding side of things (the guys on youtube made sliding the rear look so easy!)
Anyone know of any ADV/dirt bike training courses in SoFlo?
I would highly recommend flying to Jimmy Lewis riding school and just rent one of his bikes. IMHO, you are not going to get any better than his school for off road skills.
You do have to have some basic clutch and braking skills. You will use a lightweight bike for the class. He does not recommend bringing a large ADV bike. The skills required to ride the large bikes are exactly the same as the small ones. Only difference is the mistakes and weight of the big bike are amplified and will wear you out. Trust me you are going to learn a lot in his class.
Sign up for the news letter and you will get first chance at getting in. It is next to impossible to get in without signing up. After you get dates for the class they fill up in just a few days.
What level of a rider do I have to be to participate in your class? Read below to figure out what level your skill is off-road. The Safest Thing You Can Do Is To Understand Your Own Ability Level! Riding motorcycles is one of the most difficult and challenging activities humans participate in...
And no matter what anyones opinion might be, no open block knobby no ride. Jimmy is a stickler about having open block knobby's in the class. If you ride in with an E07 you will be doing a lot of dirt naps.
