Off Road Training

I apologize if this is being posted in the wrong forum. I couldn't find a forum dedicated to training. Mod's, feel free to move as fitting.

I've been searching for opportunities for training and was seriously considering one of Jim Hyde's courses in southern Calif. I discovered this website http://pssor.com/pssor-adv/training-camps as an alternative. Just wondering if anybody on here has experience with this group. It is attractive for me in that they offer one of the classes only a few hours ride south of me near Crater Lake. And, about 1/2 the price of RawHyde.

PSSOR Training

I took one of their adventure camps. It was a three day event where you camp there and they provide meals and training. It was a good basic training and everyone seems dot pick up some good tips and techniques. if you are more experienced you might prefer something more advanced , but if you are a beginner I strongly recommend it as a start.

I've taken some of the PSSOR training and it was quite useful for me. Judging by comments from the other attendees, they found it helpful also.

Thanks for the input. My experience off road has been with 175 cc and my current 250 cc, bikes. I have taken my 1200 on some dirt and gravel roads, but these have largely been on my own. I've not dumped the bike.... YET!...so, I know I'm not pushing my limits. I know that the RawHyde Adventure classes are top notch and I'm thinking that I might take the local class through PSS and then see where this takes me. And, then next year, consider one of the RawHyde classes. The PSS class is $719 and the RawHyde Class ~$1500 + travel expenses. I tend to heed the adage that "you get what you pay for". I'm just wondering if I would get 2x as much from the Hyde class.

There's no substitute for just going out and riding. If you have to go to the gym, you could take a page out of a Dakar legends book..... probably one of the greatest riders that ever lived
