OFFROAD BASIC

2 days rider training

This is our two-day basic training. We start from scratch with throttle/clutch control, balance exercises, lifting techniques, braking exercises, cornering and riding up- and down-hills. After that, we continue to more advanced practices, but always at a comfortable level for you.

We adopt the exercises individually so that you can grow at your own pace and still feel challenged. We stay mainly in our training area, but a few short trips to apply what we have learned, are also included.

Drive your own motorcycle or rent from us

Our trainings are suitable for all off-road and adventure motorcyclists, and you are welcome regardless of make and model of your motorcycle. You can ride your own motorcycle or any of our new BMW GS models. All you need to participate is a driver’s license for heavy motorcycles. If you are looking to buy a new bike and wish to test ride the newest GS models in an authentic environment, there is no better opportunity than this!

30 new GS

We have just over 30 BMW GS of the latest model available for you. Everything from the F750 GS to the R1250 GS Adventure. We also have factory-lowered models and models with higher sports suspension. We dare to say that there is no better opportunity to test drive the new GS models! Of course, you are welcome to complete the training on your own motorcycle if you wish, regardless of brand and model. It should, however, be an offroad / adventure model and must be insured, with paid tax, inspected and approved for driving on public roads.

Official BMW Motorrad partner

We are an official BMW Motorrad Partner and all our instructors have long experience. Our main instructor is one of the few BMW IIA trained instructors (BMW Motorrad International Instructor Academy).
