BMW GS Off-Road Riding Skills DVD

Motorcycle Riding DVD

Taking a heavyweight bike like the GS on a real off-road adventure may be daunting unless you know what to do.

The BMW GS Off-Road Riding Skills DVD is designed to help new GS riders get comfortable with the basics of riding in the dirt. The lessons are based on the official BMW Off-Road Riding Academy rider training program at Rawhyde Adventures.

By watching the DVD and practicing the drills, GS riders will learn the fundamentals of riding big adventure bikes off the pavement, including the differences between street riding and off-road riding, body position, balance and clutch control.

There are 13 lessons in total, including riding while standing, lifting a fallen motorcycle off the ground, the “friction zone,” slow speed balance, turn execution (counter-balancing), rear wheel skids, front brake friction, ascending and descending steep hills and riding in sand. Proper ergonomic set up of the bike is also covered.

Over 95% of the world’s roads are unpaved, so if you don’t like to (or can’t) ride in the dirt, you’ll find yourself confined to a mere 5% of the planet.

With this best selling DVD you will learn the drills, skills and techniques from some of the top Enduro trainers in the country, so you too can experience the exhilarating adventure that lies beyond the end of the tarmac.
