For those that need some dirt skills...

Update: I found this great write up about a guy’s Rawhyde Adventures training course experience over at worth a read if you have any interest in these courses to get a feel for what one would be like.

If you’ve recently got yourself a big enduro bike like a KLR or BMW GS and don’t have much in the way of dirt riding skills you should watch this DVD. It won’t make you a superstar, but it will give you a set of drills to practice and some useful information that will make heading off pavement less painful. Rawhyde Adventures runs a BMW Offroad Academy that will teach you all you need to know if you have the time and $$$ for the training.

I can’t afford $1400 for a 2 day course or $2600 for a 5 day catered trip, but I can afford $30 for a DVD I can watch whenever I need a refresher on the basics and I can share it with friends who might be thinking about getting a dualsport bike.

I got my DVD from Touratech USA. I think most BMW motorcycle dealers can get you a copy as well.

    Ever seen the Dual Sport Riding Techniques DVD? I bought that one and they offer different levels of skills DVD’s to chose from. The one I have is pretty decent but I wonder how it compares to this one you mention.

    I’ll be getting the DSRT DVDs in the next few weeks. I’ll post a review as soon as I’ve watched them.

    @Rick – here is my review of the DSR Basic Skills DVD:

    It’s a better buy than the BMW. If you can afford both they take a different approach so watching them both isn’t a waste of time.

    You don’t have to buy the DVD. You can rent it as I did on Amazon Instant Video. Forget how much buy it was cheap
