2 days rider training

This is our two-day basic training. We start from scratch with throttle/clutch control, balance exercises, lifting techniques, braking exercises, cornering and riding up- and down-hills. After that, we continue to more advanced practices, but always at a comfortable level for you.

We adopt the exercises individually so that you can grow at your own pace and still feel challenged. We stay mainly in our training area, but a few short trips to apply what we have learned, are also included.

  • If you book a Rider Training, Adventure Tour or Adventure Days that is canceled due to COVID-19, you will always be able to choose between re-booking or getting a full refund!

Our training is suitable for all off-road and adventure motorcyclists, and you are welcome regardless of the brand and model of your motorcycle. You can ride your own motorcycle or one of our new BMW GS models. All you need to participate is a driver’s license for heavy motorcycles and riding gear.

We have around 30 BMW GS of the latest model available for you. Everything from the F750 GS to the R1250 GS Adventure. We also have factory-lowered models and models with higher sports suspension. We dare to say that there is no better opportunity to test ride the new GS models! Of course, you are welcome to complete the training on your own motorcycle if you wish, regardless of brand and model.
