This event is open to all Adventure bikes and brands.

The team at RideADV have years of experience in all areas of motorcycling, but specialise in Adventure Riding. It’s time we shared that knowledge and help grow our sport. With this in mind and the continued on-going support of Yamaha Australia and all our other sponsors, we are proud to present the 4th 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. And for those wanting to brush up on their skills and knowledge.

Lead rider for these events will be RideADV’s own Greg “TB” Yager, with Wayne “Crash” Nelson, looking after sweep duties with his experienced sweep crew.

TB and Crash have been riding for over 45 years, and have a wealth of knowledge, practical experience and bike setup advise 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 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;

  • Pre ride bike inspection
    • Bike setup
    • 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
    • Suspension set-up
    • Riding tips
    • Luggage, packing tips and tricks
    • GPS, how to understand and use them.
    • Riding gear, jackets and safety gear
    • How to change a tyre track side
    • Tools, what to carry.
    • Tents, swags.
    • Saturday evening question and answer sessions
    • Plus much more

The RideADV sweep crew and support vehicles will be there supporting the event, as will the luggage truck as per previous events.
