I will continue to preach the value of being a competent dirt rider enhancing your street riding skill. Forever.

Thanks Budman!

Yes, dirt skills definitely crossover to street riding!

We've still got a couple slots open for the October 20th Beginner Adventure Class, so come check it out for a fun day learning in the dirt and hanging out with other riders!

Is a Ducati Hypermotard appropriate for this class?

Yes! The closed range exercises are held on a flat dirt training area. We'll also do some exercises on traversing obstacles and small hills, which the Hypermotard should handle just fine.

In addition, we'll focus on riding position for standing and sitting, which I think the Hypermotard is well suited for. The only bikes that I would hesitate to recommend for the class are sport bikes with aggressive riding positions or cruisers which would make it difficult to maintain good standing position for many of the exercises.

Let me know if you have more questions about the class. Would love to see you out on the range!

If you go to https://www.wanderingkingsadvmoto.com/class-schedule and click on "Enroll" on any of the available classes, you'll see the class prices at the bottom of that page.

I'll also work to try to get pricing information more visible on the website.

Thanks!
Jon

Would love to! Here's some pictures from earlier this summer with a couple beginner students, one of whom had actually never been on a motorcycle until the day of class. He was counterbalancing like a pro by the end of the day and he was able to go on some easy trails. Really proud of them!
