As I hadn’t ridden on dirt, sand, mud or gravel since I was a teenager, I figured it might make sense to get some off road motorcycle training in before leaving to get used to the bike moving around.
The guys at Track Sense sorted me out with a day in the dirt near Heathrow. Andy, Dave and Keith were awesome, taking us through all the basics of off road and trail riding, and had us locking the front, riding over ruts, rocks and gravel, jumping obstacles and generally having fun in no time.
I’m number 5 in the video. And no, that’s not me crashing by the way.
Spent most of the day on their Yamaha 250s and took the Tiger round the track with road tyres on. Handles nicely.
