Basic off-road training in Belgium

Go on a GS training expedition and improve your off-road riding skills.


One-day basic off-road motorcycle training

Your GS off-road training expedition
The Basic Training course is for those who want to challenge themselves to learn off-road riding. You will start from scratch and focus mainly on various basic techniques. Our partner gradually increases the difficulty in slight increments, taking into account everyone’s personal comfort zone and focusing on individual feedback to create a customised learning curve. After some theory and warm-up exercises, you will learn to get a feel for viewing technique, the correct posture, counter-balancing, short turns, etc. In the afternoon, you and the partner have time to discuss more in-depth exercises like emergency stops, driving in narrow gullies, crossing obstacles, etc.
