Herewith the awaited 2018 training dates.  The training team are ready to surprise you with a training programme which promises for an interesting and exciting year....the idea to cover all aspects of adventure biking as well as tar riding.

The Level 1, 2 and pillion Off Road training is as per BMW standards. We prefer and recommend riders to do Level 1 first and then move to Level 2.  This way we know they have learned the basics.  We recommend riders with a new bike to do a refresher of Lev 1 or 2 depending on their riding abilities as each bike have its own bonding space and dynamics.

Only 1 level can be completed on a day.

We cover:

- theory about rider gear, safety, rider position, bike set-up, dynamics of the BMW bike, tyre pressures, etc

Level 1: Explaining and adjusting the motorcycle, ABS de-activation, rider position, Off Road steering, cone riding, balancing, picking up the bike, leading the bike, slow riding, braking

Level 2: Bike set-up, tyre pressures, rider position, cone riding, body position, angle riding,  stopping on a hill, uphill & down hill riding, sharp turns, sand riding, technical ride up a jeep track, high speed braking on gravel, gymkhana, sand and trail riding, etc.

Remember our rules still apply:  you only do what you feel comfortable with.  Come and have fun on that GS and challenge yourself .

We also cater for other brands.  Feel free to invite your friend/s on his Yamaha, KTM, Tenére etc.  

Training venue:

We are fortunate to use the facilities at Anura Vineyards, Klapmuts.
