A NEWBIE DUAL SPORT  ADVENTURE – March 25, 2017, Alvarado, TX
Dual Sport riding is a growing sport with more and more newcomers joining in each year. As a long time rider and promoter of DS events, I have seen a need for a new DS rider to get his or her feet wet (no pun intended) in an unpressured way. I’m offering to a group of 6 an opportunity to be introduced to the sport by being led on a quality dual sport ride that is 150 miles long or less, depending on what the group wants. Of this 150 miles, only 25 miles will be paved, and each participant will have a chance to lead the group. If you are a more experienced rider, you may also ride this ride, and will not be disappointed.
You will be introduced to:
  1. Roll chart and how to use it
  2. GPS route and following it
  3. Things you can do to set up your motorcycle
  4. Reading the terrain
  5. Group etiquette
  6. Personal tips on your riding skills
The ride will be paced at the comfort level of the group, with no need for speed.
Introductory price for this entry level class will be $65, which will include T-shirt, paper rollchart and GPS file.
Ride date is Saturday, March 25th starting from Alvarado Tx. @ 8:30am.
