Rawhyde Adventures

Hello everyone,

My name is Dusty and I work in sales and off road rider training for Rawhyde Adventures and The World of Rawhyde.
This thread is going to be dedicated to everything pertaining to the World of Rawhyde!
What is Rawhyde? Let’s let you answer that with a few questions from us…

Are you interested in learning more about what the term “Adventure Riding” means?

Do you currently own a motorcycle or are you looking to purchase one to do some off-road Adventure Riding?

Do you have little or no off-road riding experience and are wondering how you are going to handle your new 450+ lb motorcycle in the dirt?

Are you unsure about how to go about the whole off-road Adventure Experience?

If you answered yes to these questions then Rawhyde Adventures is the place to get the tools you need to get the most out of your Adventure experience!

Rawhyde’s Rider Training Programs

Here is a tidbit on RawHyde's "Rider Training Programs". We call our programs Adventure Camps, because they are much more than a simple riding skills program. They are all encompassing adventures that provide a much richer experience than just a class room and a training field. You will definetely learn a lot about riding your motorcycle in challenging conditions, and your confidence will skyrocket, but your experience is much more than just training. You'll enjoy the camaraderie of the campfire, hanging out in the Dakar Bar, and sharing fine meals together. You'll have the chance to learn about many of the ancillary things that go with Adventure Riding, Navigation, GPS, trail repairs, the latest in communication and a whole lot more.

Our primary goal is to show you how to ride your Adventure Motorcycle comfortably and safely in an off road environment. Adventure Bikes are the SUV's of the motorcycle world and can be intimidating if you don't have experience as an off-road rider. We will give you the experience you need to begin to explore the world..."your way."


Intro to Adventure



This Class follows the curriculum taught at BMW's very own training school in Germany. This program is for the novice off-roader; someone with a measure of "street experience" but little or no off-road experience. Many participants in this program do have some dirt bike experience in their past, but also recognize that handling a big bike off-road is much different than a light weight dirt bike. Our goal with this training is to give our customers the opportunity to get comfortable in the dirt, and togive them the confidence to explore the logging roads and back-country tracks of the world.

Note: this is not a "beginners" dirt bike training class, we recommend that you complete a Motorcycle Safety Foundation "Rider Training Class" and that you have at least 3 months of general riding experience before signing up for this program.



The Next Step



This program is aimed directly at riders who have completed our "Intro to Adventure" program or have at least a year of off-road experience. The curriculum is designed for those who want to begin to expand the boundaries of their riding and travel beyond the realm of logging or forest roads. We will begin to work with skills that will help the rider gain confidence for managing rougher trails. The goal is to reinforce the lessons of our introductory program, to increase the pace, and to equip the rider with a skill set such that they can overcome virtually any obstacle encountered on a round the world trip. This class will teach the rider a very complete toolbox of skills, skills that will enable the rider to conquer any foreseeable challenge.



Expedition CV



This program is part expedition preparedness, part education and part vacation. It's a real life adventure, on a fully loaded motorcycle and it takes place in the "real world" not the carefully crafted environment of our training school. To top the experience off… this is one cool trip as well.

This is only scratching the surface of what Rawhyde Adventures offers! Ever dreamed of riding the Continental divide trail? Rawhyde leads those tours! Interested in renting a motorcycle for some awesome California riding? ADVRentals through Rawhyde can get you set up! Looking to purchase a big adventure motorcycle but not sure which one to purchase? Rawhyde’s Demo Program allows you to choose from the major big bike manufacturers (BMW, KTM, Triumph and Yamaha) and go on a real world test ride! You will get your choice of bike, some instruction and you will be led by a Rawhyde guide on an on-road and off-road ride! This will give you the opportunity to evaluate the bike in real world situations.


For more details on all the programs offered by Rawhyde please see our website

If you are interested in anything Rawhyde has to offer please use this forum to post up your question and everyone can learn! If your question is a bit more private in nature or you want to sign up for anything Rawhyde has to offer, please PM me D-Train (Dusty) and I will answer any questions you have and get you signed up for any of Rawhyde’s rider training courses, tours or any other events or special programs of your choice. Thanks everyone!

Dusty

Rawhyde Round Em Up

Shawn Thomas came out to our dealership to give an unbelievable seminar on the operation and then followed up with his promise to come back 6 weeks later to conduct an offroad class for our customers. Top Shelf operation from a presentation standpoint. Customers who went out west to the Academy were treated first class and learned a load. Great work.

I'm signed up for the August Colorado newbies class. I hope I do better than I did at Shane Watts school! But there I had the heaviest bike in the class (KLX250 - everybody else was riding real dirt bikes, half were two smokes). Here I'll prolly have the lightest since I'm going to be riding my DR650!

Been riding since '68 but not much dirt. Every time I go to a school, whether it be street (STAR) or flattrack (American Supercamp) or dirt (Dirtwise) two things happen. In this order, usually:
1. I embarrass the heck out of myself.
2. I learn a ton!

At 65 I've been embarrassed enough that it doesn't hurt so much anymore and I've also found that learning new stuff is always cool!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to it!

Awesome kbuckey The DR650 is one of my favorite bikes. With your #1 and #2 you will fit in perfect I will most likely be one of your instructors for that weekend, looking forward to meeting you!

What are you doing in May? Wanna join a group of us and come out to the Overland Expo?

Hi Dusty,

I'm still putting it all together for 2014, and I am going to make an effort. Rawhyde is a crack team and it's been on my bucket list for a long time. I hope I can get this, or something else related, more solid than a pencil on my calendar.

All the best, my friend...

Stovey

Congrat's Dusty. We still have to get together for a beer, maybe in one of the little Loveland microbrewery.
