Saturday night includes a Q&A in the RideADV Workshop!

The team at RideADV, have years of experience in all areas of motorcycling – specialising in Adventure Riding. It’s time we shared that knowledge and helped grow our sport. With this in mind, and with the continued On-going support of Yamaha Australia and all our other valued Sponsors, we are proud to Present the 1st “Introduction to Adventure Riding Series” for 2024, our newest concept in Adventure Riding.

These rides are suitable for all types of Adventure bikes, All brands, All models and All rider skill levels. These rides are designed for those that are new to adventure riding and are wanting to learn the right way to do it safely. And for those wanting to brush up on their skills and knowledge.

These events have RideADV’s own Greg “TB” Yager, Mick “Strongy” Strong, John “JohnBoy” Harrison and more experienced crew members on board. TB, Strongy & JohnBoy have over 100 years cumulative between them and have a wealth of knowledge, practical experience and bike setup advice 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 Aus.

The crew are all knowledgeable, experienced and consistent riders, looking to pass on the knowledge they have from years of riding.

During these rides, we will be sharing all aspects of Adventure Riding including;
