      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!

      What’s included

      • 2 Full Days of Training
      • Post Training Q&A
        Relaxed group chats and specific clinics about riding apparel, bike protection, camping gear, tools, gps and phone navigation, preparing to ride a BDR route and more!

      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.


      Incredible instructors, awesome training. Had a great time and learned more than I could have imagined.

      Although I have owned an Adventure motorcycle for over 20 years, substantially all of my riding experience had been riding on the street. I decided that it was time to expand my riding horizon to include offroad riding as well and I began to research (primarily through YouTube and website searches) various training programs. West38Moto stood out to me as the perfect fit...and it certainly turned out to be a tremendous experience. The location, instructors and classmates were outstanding. Two days of working on the fundamentals while being encouraged by very experienced coaches, followed by a day long training ride with instructors to apply what we had learned was a very effective course structure. (If you have the time, i highly recommend the day long training ride). I'm really looking forward to attending the level II training to further advance my riding skills. Many thanks to Dusty and his team of coaches, especially John, Brian and Colin.

      I recently took West 38 Moto’s Level 2 adventure motorcycle class, which was an incredible experience. This class significantly improved both my riding skills and confidence when navigating off-road terrains on big adventure motorcycles. The curriculum was well-structured, and Level 2 catered to riders with prior experience riding off-road motorcycles (they offer Level 1 if you don’t – which I previously took). The instructors were knowledgeable, patient, and extremely skilled. They provided clear, practical instructions and personalized feedback, ensuring everyone made progress. Their passion for off-road riding and teaching is evident, which made the learning process engaging and fun. Not only that, but the laid-back environment put me at ease, making it easy to focus on learning and improving. The environment was supportive and encouraging, which added to the overall positive experience. The class focuses on exactly what you need to know to ride the trail, and not on trivial things you’ll never use. We covered various techniques essential for off-road riding, such as handling the bike in slow tight turns, navigating steep inclines and declines, mastering tight turns on uneven terrain, and many more essential skills. Each exercise was designed to build our confidence and competence progressively. I rode several thousand miles through several states to do a BDR ride and found it to be an almost impossible ride. At the time I legitimately thought about quitting riding adventure motorcycles, I almost convinced myself I just didn’t have the off-road riding skills. But I decided to take a few courses from West 38 Moto (Level 1 and now Level 2) to give it one last try before throwing in the towel. I can't recommend West 38 Moto enough, it transformed my ability to ride off-road and made me a better on-road rider too. For anyone looking to learn how to properly ride off-road motorcycles, or just enhance their off-road motorcycle riding abilities, West 38 Moto is the place to do it. If you take the instruction seriously, pay attention, put in the effort, and are willing to learn you'll find immense value in the expert instruction and practical experience offered. A special thanks to the West 38 Moto Team. I’ll see you all for Level 3 in 2025.

      I had a great time learning off-road skills and still can’t believe how much have I improved over only three days. I couldn’t be happier and strongly recommend the course. Will be back next year for the Level 2 training.

      Just finished the AZ BDR tour with ADV—absolutely epic! The guides were top-notch, and the whole experience was unforgettable. Can't wait to join more tours with them. Highly recommend!
