• Advanced adventure bike riding techniques

Our Level Three course is designed to give experienced, confident riders exciting new challenges – and ensure you go away with some truly advanced skills and some fantastic stories. The techniques covered in the lessons will teach you how to confidently do things with a BMW GS motorcycle that most people never imagine possible.
You need to have been riding regularly on challenging terrain and putting the skills you have learned on Levels One and Two into practice. After a warm-up trail ride, the day kicks off with a trials and skills course to assess your riding ability. This allows our expert instructors to focus the rest of the course on honing your skills on the endless trails around Walters Arena. The course emphasis is on the technical details that will take your motorcycling skills to another level. Level Three is all about developing these skills with more challenging exercises and trails.
What does Level Three cover?
• Brake slide turns and power slides
• Spin turns
• Advanced ruts and changing ruts
• Pre-loading the suspension
• Complex off-cambers
