  • 20 places, First booked & paid - first served. 
  • This course has hand outs
  • Certificates will be given to attendees.

 

We will cover the various dynamics from :-

  • What to take,
  • what to pack,
  • what the basic methodology is about mass distribution.
  • unbalanced mass = uneven tyre wear = sore lower back, sore neck, rider fatigue.
  • We look at the principles of loading the bike and yourself, and the approach to deciding what must go, and how much.
  • Avoid intense frustration due to poor packing principles.
  • Come learn from the team that adventure rides on multiple day and day rides out into the wilds.

 

 

Simple is best,  Less is more

 

This course follows on the Water crossing and self rescue training as a big help to making the right choices and decisions.

Thanks to all who attended, making this a productive and informative evening.

I hope you get to practice what you learned and that you venture into the roads less traveled safely and with confidence.

Your course notes have been mailed to you.

Thank you for all the attention you gave and to the questions.

 

Once again, special thanks to our partners- BMW Donford Motorrad who provided the venue and arranged tha catering.

Thank you John Carr for opening the venue and for locking up after we left.
