This training event is geared for those who have the desire to travel beyond the pavement but lack (or wish to improve) the important fundamentals and basics required to ride in a variety of off-road conditions. Because this is a small-group training, all levels of riders are welcome to attend and will gain valuable skills regardless of your experience off-pavement.
The nature of this event demands a dual-purpose, street-legal motorcycle equipped with proper tires. This event is well suited for dual-sport motorcycles in the 250-650 CC range.You should already know how to ride and have had substantial pavement riding experience and ideally some off-road riding experience. Motorcycle endorsement required.

The rider training aspect of our Moab Training is brought to you by D.A.R.T (Dragoo Adventure Rider Training) and is personalized to the level of each rider. Bill Dragoo is a BMW Certified Instructor (all brands of motorcycles welcome).
Rider training. There are a handful of decent training opportunities out there for introducing you to the world of adventure motorcycle touring. A weekend of coaching will certainly be of benefit. But if you really want the training to become planted, you must apply those newly learned skills. Combining training with a tour is the answer - and you will marvel at the results.
Even experienced riders who have developed less-than-perfect riding habits can benefit. And because the groups are small (limited to 8 participants), you can count on getting one-on-one low-pressure coaching allowing you to progress at your own pace.
If you think this Moab Adventure Training is all about the classroom, you’ll think differently as you ride the wondrous Canyonlands and with each day feel your confidence build and your enjoyment soar. You will gradually ride more relaxed, becoming one with your motorcycle as we train every day of the event in different environments. What was once white-knuckle will gradually transition to exhilarating, confident touring. That is our goal.
So if you have the desire and the dream of taking on the exotic corners of our planet, a MotoDiscovery training event is the best place to begin. Again, applying those skills by combining training with a tour will give you the best results. The thrilling Copper Canyon, the wilds of the Patagonia, the highest passes of the Himalayas and seeing the condors flying high over the Andes are next. We’ll take you there, too.
