“I had a lot of fun and learned a lot of tricks and techniques to use towards getting my confidence and competency level up to where I can focus on why I'm riding there verses how to ride there. Northern BC has a lot of back country roads and there is a lot to explore. Many of the resource roads are in various states of disuse and deactivation but the scenery and sense of nowhere-ness is tough to beat anywhere else. I had an awesome time and have a lot of stuff to try and put to practice. At my age practice won’t make perfect anymore but it will make me better.” Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin 6 years riding experience 5 years Adventure ridingJames Hepburn
“I always wanted to do that sort of practicing but was not confident enough to do so by myself. It was great to have experienced instructors on hand to point out helpful and timely tips/observations.” Honda CB500X 30 years riding experience 13 years adventure riding Guy Scharf
“I must say I picked up a lot of useful techniques for riding dirt. Maneuvering your bike by holding on with your knees. Body position on the bike. Head up and looking at the horizon line. I especially liked the turning tight circles lesson. Ascending and descending hills while staying in full control of your bike. You both drove home the lessons and in practice critiqued our short comings. Awesome job guys!!” KTM 990 Adventure & KTM 690 Enduro R 36 years riding experience 7 years adventure ridingGreg Spiers
