Am I allowed to ride my ABC XYZ, or is it only for BMW bikes?

We’re happy to teach all brands of motorcycles. The class is primarily focused on big ADV bikes like the R1250GS, but we’ve had riders train on everything from small ADVs like the KTM 390 all the way up to big Scrambler style bikes like the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE.

If it has 2 wheels and will go off-road, you’re welcome to ride!


Can I sign up for both days?

Both days will cover the same material. We encourage riders to only sign up for one of the two days, to save a seat in the class so that more riders can come and learn.


What kind of tires do I need for the clinic?

Knobbies are welcome, but certainly NOT required. If your tires are described by their manufacturer as dual-sport, adventure, 80/20, or some similar verbiage, you’ll be fine. We’re looking for good traction in dirt and grass, not trying to set a hill-climb world record.


What skill level do I need to attend the beginner clinic?

Our clinics are designed to teach people who already know the basics of motorcycle riding. Off-road experience is NOT required (that’s why you’re attending!) but you should be generally comfortable riding and operating your motorcycle. If you’re brand new to motorcycling, give us a call about how to get started and you can play in the mud with us next year!


What kind of gear is required?

We plan this event late in the season so you can comfortably wear all your armor. You must at least have a DOT approved helmet, gloves, a shirt, long pants, and closed-toed shoes. Having a full set of gear is strongly encouraged.


Where is the clinic?

It’s about 5 miles south of Purcellville, VA. The event is being held on private property, and we don’t want to send our host’s address to thousands of people. Everyone who registers for the clinic will receive an email with the exact address and other important information at least 1 week before the event!


Will an intermediate or advanced clinic be offered?

Not currently. We plan to open intermediate and advanced clinics again when we are able to select a new property more suited to intermediate and advanced skills!


Is there a rain date?

No. Our instructors are touring the country teaching these classes and we can’t guarantee a rain date. If conditions are unsafe, we’ll cancel the clinic and offer credit toward our next Adventure Clinic. Note: These are adventure bikes! We won’t be canceling for a light sprinkle or a gentle breeze.


Can MOD loan or rent me a bike to ride?

For many reasons both legal and logistical, we can’t supply a bike for you to ride at the clinic. If you want to buy a bike and ride it at the clinic we can certainly help you pick one out.


Still have questions?

Send an email to and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
