      Level 1 Beginner Training

      Off-road skills don’t happen overnight.  We want you to feel comfortable when you transition from the pavement to the dirt, and our training will help you build the finesse required to adventure ride safely.  Breaking down each movement into easy-to-understand steps is the key to our training.  The Triple Threat—or clutch, brake, and throttle—is one example of our focus on the fundamentals of controlling the motorcycle at slow speeds.  By re-learning how to precisely control the actions of clutching, braking, and throttling, you’ll maximize your riding capability using this core principle.  The Triple Threat is the backbone of our training program, and it carries over into every exercise we do. One thing is for sure…you will have a lot more confidence, the necessary tools, and refined skills to help you “Ride your Ride.” Also consider adding the 1 Day Upgrade Beyond Training Ride to further enhance the experience and practice what you’ve learned!

      This is your event. We are here to help you succeed in your own way. West38Moto offers a different experience than other off-road motorcycle training and tour companies. We recognize that not everyone functions well outside their comfort zone, while others want to be pushed out if it. People learn at different speeds, in distinctive ways, and will reach individualized goals. Because everyone has to start somewhere, our focus is on teaching off-road fundamentals at your pace and expanding the size of your comfort zone.


      Excellent, well-organized, well-delivered Adventure training by very skilled, very dedicated instructors who have a deep heart for their craft and are willing to meet their riding students where they are (skills wise), including individualized instruction as needed. Oh, and the entire experience, while challenging, was certainly a lot of fun; the instructors, and the other students, were absolutely delightful to spend time with, both during the training events themselves and afterward at the group dinners. I can see why so many in the class were repeat students who showed up again because, as they shared, there's always something more to learn from the West38 Moto training programs.

      This was my 2nd time taking level 1. Really reinforced those skills and also picked up some knowledge I must have forgotten about the first time. I'm now more confident controlling my speed when going downhill! Great instructors.

      Can’t say enough good things about my experience with West38: Dusty and fellow instructors, the training curriculum, the community of riders—ALL exceptional. If you want to level up your riding, and do it surrounded by a genuinely supportive group of people, ride with West38Moto.

      Highly recommended! Dusty and Tom were outstanding tour guides. Amazing rides during the day and great food and accommodation at night. Having a capable support vehicle during the tour gives you peace of mind.

      The 5-day Baja trip was awesome! Dusty and Tom took excellent care of the group and everybody had a great time. They knew all the ins and outs of Baja, the riding and scenery were unbelievable. Miles if dirt roads through the mountains and along the coast. The hotel accommodations and food were all top notch. I'm planning another trip with them soon, can't wait. If you are considering going to Baja, I say book it now!!! You won't regret it. Bruce D. Oceanside, CA
