BMW Motorrad Australia has announced its GS Off Road Training courses for 2018, including a course in bike maintenance.
The training components are hosted by coaches Shane Booth and Chris Urquhart who have developed the BMW Motorrad Off Road Training courses since 2003 and trained thousands of riders in Australia and internationally.
The following established courses are offered in 2018:
Level 1 – Suitable for beginners through to experienced riders, Level 1 provides an off road skills foundation for BMW GS motorcyclists.
Level 2 – Taking adventure riding to the next level, this course enables riders to build their skillset on more difficult terrain and learn the correct technique for riding over obstacles.
Sand – Sand can cause many challenges for adventure riders. In this course, the BMW Motorrad instructors will assist riders in developing their confidence and the correct technique when crossing sand.
New adventure courses for 2018:
With the increased demand for BMW GS Off Road Training, the following new courses have been added to the program for 2018.
Level 3 – Conquering technical riding and Enduro motorcycling, Level 3 is available via an expression of interest, for BMW GS riders determined on furthering their riding skills.
