Adventure riding is what exists beyond the end of the tarmac. Over 95% of the world's roads are unpaved, so if you don't like to (or can't) ride in the dirt, you'll find yourself confined to a mere 5% of the planet.
Big adventure bikes like the BMW GS motorcycle are the SUV's of the motorcycle world, yet many riders are nervous about taking them off into the dirt, even though that's what they were designed for.
The BMW GS Off-Road Riding Skills DVD is designed to help "newbie" GS riders get comfortable with the basics of riding in the dirt. The material based on the official BMW Off-Road Riding Academy rider training program at Rawhyde Adventures.
By watching the DVD and practicing the lessons contained within, GS riders will learn the fundamentals of riding big adventure bikes off the pavement, including the differences between street riding and off-road riding, body position, balance and clutch control. There are 13 lessons in total, including riding while standing, lifting a fallen motorcycle off the ground, the "friction zone", slow speed balance, turn execution (counter-balancing), rear wheel skids, front brake friction, ascending and descending steep hills and riding in sand. Proper ergonomic set up of the bike is also covered.
