Off Road riding course offered-Nor Cal 2/23/14

A friend is putting on a Beginner's level offroad/dual sport riding class in Feb,the last one went over pretty well and everybody had a good time and learned some new tricks,Im going to check it out.

Date is changed to 2/23/14 due to too much rain/mud.

Beginner Off Road Training Course
Part 1, Sunday, February 23rd 2014
This course is designed for our beginner Dual Sport riders.
Learn the skills and gain confidence to become a better rider.



OK so we'll probably save riding over the suburban for the second class.

What does it take to become a better rider? Well there's no better teacher than experience and this course is designed to give you the tools to make you a better rider every time you ride, conquer obstacles and ride with confidence.
Part 1 of the 3 part course will be held on the Wendt Racing property in the foothills East of Chico CA. This is a great secluded location with a variety of terrain and is the perfect training area for building your Off Road riding skills. We are limiting this course to riders on 650cc bikes and smaller, the class will begin at 10:00 am.
( check in 9:30 ) Lunch is include, and we should finish up at about 4:00 pm. Cost for part 1 is $75.00 per rider. All riders must have complete protective riding gear, Helmet, eye protection, chest protector, riding boots, knee and elbow guards, etc.


All riders must pre register for this course,
sign up on line here, Off Road Course Part 1

I look forward to seeing our beginner riders and helping you enjoy our sport. Any questions just let me know, bob@ironmandualsport.com
Thanks and please forward to any riders who may benefit from this course.

This sounds interesting.. I've only had my XL6 for a year now so I could benefit from some help with my off pavement skills

Is a chest protector mandatory? I have a full set of gear that covers everything else mentioned. I ask because I'm not sure I can afford to pay the entry fee in addition to buying a good chest protector this month...

Full protective gear is required, other types of body armor are also OK, a protective riding jacket that has armor or protective padding, also "pressure suit" type armor is alright. What it boils down to is that if your going to ride Off Road you will fall and more than once. Good protective gear can save you from serious injury or death and that can really ruin a great days ride. Bob

Bob, is this big bike friendly? I'd like to take a course or two since I am an absolute noob, but at the same time, I don't want to get a full workout

OK you guys win, I've had several other people with big bikes want to take the course and certainly a 800 GS is lighter than a KLR 650. The basic skills are the same. You can sign up here, http://shop.ironmandualsport.com/cat...c?categoryId=2 Any questions just email me, bob@ironmandualsport.com
Thanks Bob

Don't know of anywhere local to rent a bike, if I can find you a loaner I'll let you know

Would a Vstrom 650 be appropriate for this class?

Brad is really good at doing tricks in the dirt, he was in front of me on the trail Saturday so I didn't see it but I heard he was doing flips and other technical tricks off the face of a giant boulder.
