At Desert Rose Riding Academy we are focused on delivering rider training and coaching so that riders can get the most out of their riding experience. Whether it is through our Stage 1/2 courses getting riders taking those first steps off road, or coaching riders who plan to take part in hard/extreme enduro events, riders looking to take on a big desert rallye, owners of big adventure bikes who want to go off the tarmac occasionally our passion is helping riders enhance their off road riding skills.
It is no surprise therefore that Sinnis Motorcycles asked us to deliver some off road rider training courses for riders of their 125 Terrain motorcycles. These small capacity motorcycles are proving to be popular with newer riders, as well as those returning to 2 wheels.
We have based the courses on our Stage 1 syllabus which builds the core principles for riding motorcycles off road. Body positioning and bike handling exercises enable riders to build their confidence. This is then built on further with learning the braking techniques for riding off road. With some 80 plus acres of open, rutted fields, tight woodland and some short but fairly steep hills riders and bikes coped really well all day.
We know of riders who have taken and in fact are currently taking these T125s on all sorts of adventures, one of which sees a young rider on her way to the northern tip of Norway, tent and provisions strapped to the back of her bike. She spent a day with us just before she left the UK to build her off road riding skills, ready for whatever Scandanavia might throw at her. Safe travels H.
