Overland Expo 2016 EAST

In celebration of the success of the Change Your World Fund, Overland Expo is offering a training package giveaway, specially tailored for overlanders. Thanks to RawHyde Adventures, REV'IT!, and Nexx for donating a spectacular prize package. 

No matter if you are just starting out or are a seasoned rider, RawHyde Adventures can up your adventure motorcycle riding skills with expert instruction. Expand your Overland Expo experience with an adventure motorcycle training weekend.

Recently, Jim Hyde of RawHyde Adventures turned years of dreaming into a reality with a ride down the length of South America this fall, aptly called Expedition 65. It's this spirit of exploration, no matter your age, that we want to inspire in others to get out there and see a little more of their world.  

Last year at Overland Expo EAST, we launched the Change Your World Fund to promote that idea in the younger generation. The charity has been a huge success and recently named the first grantee, Mallory Paige, to help with her project, Operation Moto Dog.

Where are you dreaming of exploring? Whether it's up to Alaska, down to the tip of Argentina, around the world, or trails around your backyard, it's never too late to get trained and take that adventure.




Whether you already know how to ride or are just curious about overlanding on two wheels, the experts at RawHyde have the knowledge you need to prepare you for taking one of their BMW dual sport motorcycles off road and on an adventure through the Mojave Desert with this all-inclusive multi-day training and ride. 

  • Three nights accommodation at RawHyde Adventure Training Facility
  • Two days of training "Intro to Adventure Camp"
  • Pre-camp clinic
  • BMW Bike Rental
  • Meals prepared by Cordon Bleu trained chefs  
  • All beverages 
  • Followed by a two-day adventure through the Mojave Desert to Base Camp Alpha 

Get geared up before you train! 

Also included in this package:

  • New REV'IT! Tornado 2 Riding Suit 
  • New Nexx XD1 Baja Helmet

Total estimated value of prize package: $4500. Prize has no cash value and must be accepted as awarded.

At Overland Expo 2015 EAST, we launched the Change Your World Fund, to honor the memory of Alistair Farland (1990 – 2014). Al, as the 24-year-old Australian was known to his friends and family, believed in the power of exploration to change things. He wanted to inspire his generation to explore their world and impact their society. Although he died in an accident in fall 2014 on his journey, his passion and inspiration did not. In collaboration with the Farland family and Overland Expo, we have launched the Change Your World Fund to support people like Alistair whose overland journeys and projects go beyond the “me” and seek out strangers and challenges.
