Sand Riding 101
The team at RideADV has years of experience in all areas of motorcycling but specialise in adventure riding. It's time we shared that knowledge and grow our sport. With this in mind and the continued on-going support of Yamaha Australia and other our other sponsors we are proud to present the 3rd in our newest concept to adventure riding, the "Introduction to Adventure Riding Series"
The rides are suitable for all adventure bikes, all brands, all models and all rider skill levels. The rides are designed for those that are new to adventure riding and are wanting to learn the right way to do it safely or those wanting to brush up on their skills and knowledge.
Lead rider for these events will be RideADV’s own Greg “TB” Yager with Brett “Chicken" Gattera looking after sweep duties with his experienced sweep crew.
TB has been riding for over 45 years and has a wealth of knowledge, practical experience and bike setup to share when it comes to off-road riding. TB’s younger years were spent on a farm riding before racing motocross, enduros, rally events and organising adventure rides for friends all over.
The RideADV crew are all safe, knowledgeable, experienced and consistent riders looking to pass on any knowledge they have from years of riding.
During these rides we will be sharing all aspects of adventure riding including;
Pre ride bike inspection
Ergonomics , riding position, comfortable and safe
Adventure bike tyres, different tyre styles, tubes, tubeless and more
Personal tracking, safety, Spot tracker, PLB, Garmin In-Reach
Luggage, packing tips and tricks
GPS, how do understand and use
Riding gear, jackets, safety gear
How to change a tyre track side
Tools, what to carry
Saturday evening question and answer sessions
Plus much more
The ride will be a mixture of cornerman and GPS navigation, a GPS isn't a requirement at this stage. If you have a GPS, we will load it and you can use it. It is a two-day ride with the overnight stay on this ride at Stockton.
The RideADV sweep crew and support vehicles as always will be there supporting the event. We can also take a backpack size bag for every person should you require it.
Camp, motel, pub it’s your ride, your adventure!
