I recently purchased a KLR650 with the intention of riding it very long distances both on and off road. That being said, I had never been riding off road in my life. After reading several excellent reviews of Jimmy's school on Adventure Rider, I booked a class last minute a few weeks ago, and had a fantastic time and learned a lot. Jimmy and Heather were fantastic. I wish I had taken a class like this years ago. I can't rave enough about my experience. I'm not sure what the proper forum etiquette is (If this is in bad taste, let me know), but I wrote up a detailed account of the class on my blog: Jimmy Lewis School - Day 1 Jimmy Lewis School - Day 2 I'm looking forward to getting my motorcycle off road again, because sitting down does not even begin to compare to standing on the pegs. I wish I knew about this 20 years ago.
