Rich Lafferty Riding school comming to Virginia

We are gauging interest in holding a DS/ADV riding school in Virginia.

So what do you think?
easy access from most major cities

Rich Lafferty Riding Schools would like to do a 2 day riding school in the Virginia area. I will need at least 10 guys and 20 max. Aug 17-18 is a possibility then Sept 21-22, and Oct 5-6. Email me at rich@richlaffertyracing.com if you are interested. Thanks, Rich

Do you have proposed agenda? Is this beginner or advanced riders? Big bikes or a little bike (under 400cc)? Trail side instuction or closed campus skills?

I've done both RayHyde "Next Step" and have trained at the BMW PC, how would you say this compares? Is this going to be geared towards a go fast "400cc enduro" school or 600 pound BMW GS's?

Rich Lafferty school

Acually good question

Depending on the intrest

three different schools currently being thought out

1st being more geared toward the light weight Dual Sports Say Sub 500cc

2nd being with the Middle Weight Dual Sports +500cc to say 650cc

3rd) being the more ADV larger bikes like the F800 to GS1200/KTM adventures, and like

What's your thoughts?


current local would be in the Northern Shenandoah Valley, Va

I am looking for ADV larger bike training. I ride a Super Tenere, and would love to learn how to get the most out of it. Following your updates.

School

Currently looking at a sweet property close to Winchester Va

Believe cost is going to around $150 per day-don't hold me to that

He's looking at possible schools for

bikes 500cc and less

Hvy DS/ADV bikes 500-650/700cc

and ADV type motorcycles 750cc and larger

this is a awesome opportunity to attend a class and not have to drive too far

if you interested shoot either me or Rich a email and what class your interested in

Dates are not set in stone yet

interested in 650 and 1200 classes

Wichester is a great location for the DC and Baltimore commnities of DS riders.

$150/day is a good price point depending on content/course.
I'd be most interested in R1200GS size training but would also consider R650GS size training as well.

Keep us posted.....

I am interested in a 400cc and under training class. If you know the dates it would help me in confirming if I can come.
