Whether exploring foreign lands or your own backyard, adventure and dual sport riding is one of life’s greatest experiences and this is where it all starts. The ADV Training Camp is designed for beginner to intermediate adventure riders. Our focus is to have riders master the balance and weight of their machines, thus reducing the energy used to ride and ultimately reducing the likelihood of injury or damage. Join PSSOR.com instructor and TourUSA.us guide Bret Tkacs (host of MOTOTREK) and the professional crew from PSSOR for this epic learning experience.
Every dual sport and adventure motorcycle owner knows the importance of having good skills and knowledge when riding off paved roads. Being injured or lost, even a few miles from help, can turn the ride of your life into a fight for your life; beyond cell service, poor riding skills, improper gear, lack of knowledge, or a broken bike can end in tragedy. The ADV Training Camp targets those riding skills needed to reduce crashes and injuries coupled with other critical lessons such as on-trail fixes, intro to navigation, and much more.
