Most of us can use help to improve our off-road riding abilities. BDR rides require off-road skills to negotiate challenging terrain. The better your riding technique, the safer your trip will be and the more you will enjoy the experience. We recommend the following rider training schools to help prepare you to RideBDR. We suggest taking a few different trainings as you pick up different things from each school or trainer.

What makes the MotoDiscovery training program the best is the “application” phase – Using your freshly learned techniques and newly acquired skills and applying them in real-world conditions with your Certified Riding Trainer ready to give instant feedback and timely recommendations.
