D.A.R.T. Off-Road Motorcycle Tour and Training Level 1 & 2 • July 9-13, 2021
Immersion Training and Tour with Dragoo Adventure Rider Training (D.A.R.T.)
Our goal is to provide a fully immersive, off-road motorcycle train/tour experience for riders who are ready to take big bikes off the beaten path. Participants will gain skills to leave the pavement and take the road less traveled with confidence.
Getting your big beast into the great unknown can be a daunting task, but with professional guidance, you’ll gain necessary tools for success. The DART immersion tour and off-road motorcycle training is designed for riders with little or no experience off road. In addition, those with a dirt bike background or who are transitioning to larger machines.
Focus on Fundamentals
Level 1 and 2 training will focus on balance and control; rather than using muscle and speed to get safely through the rough. Our building-block exercises will help you become comfortable with body position, slow-speed maneuvering, line selection, climbing, descending, braking and more. Firstly, we will work on off-road motorcycle drills and skill development in a controlled environment. Secondly, your experience will extend to actual obstacles on real trails.
Each off-road motorcycle train/tour session is a 4-night/3-day all-inclusive program. In addition to gourmet meals at the Historic Hisega Lodge, your days will be filled with riding, training and camaraderie. You, along with like-minded riders will be lucky enough to explore the best kept secrets of the Black Hills.
A chase vehicle will join us at stops, providing trailside snacks, lunch and additional support as needed.
Exact routing and training elements are subject to change with conditions.
