Whether you are new to off-pavement motorcycling or wanting to advance your skillset, we have classes for every level and all bike sizes are welcome.

DART TRAINING

THE MOTORCYCLE TRAINING TEAM

This team will build your riding skills so you can confidently tackle a variety of terrain and environments. Balance. Control. Judgment. Attitude. These are the cornerstones of adventure riding as taught by the Dragoo Adventure Rider Training (DART) team in the United States and South America, and at Overland Expo since 2017. Bill Dragoo is a certified BMW off-road instructor, certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider coach, a member of the U.S. 2010 BMW GS Trophy team, and a moto-journalist. He leads a team of coaches who will engage and encourage you in learning the finer points of managing a dual-sport motorcycle, from basic to advanced levels.
