    Not sure where to post this question... But here goes...

    I try to participate in riding courses every year or two... I've done most of the MSF courses more than once. I'm looking for off-road or dual sport schools.

    Is there a listing of "Trail Riding," "Dirt Bike," or "ADV riding" courses or schools?

    I'm looking for courses beyond the MSF Dirt Bike class. Been there, done that. Not sure if I want to do the BMW course since I ride small to mid size bikes. Besides, most info on the BMW course seems to indicate that it might likely be heavily biased toward "Going Giant" & getting a big GS bike.

    Suggestions?

    I've done both Shane Watts and Jimmy Lewis and they both do a good job. Shane Watts is more for some one whose interested in enduro racing. Jimmy Lewis's basic course is much better for dual sport or trail riding. I think he also still has a more advanced course for enduro riders or for more technical riding.

    Raw Hyde and BMW have courses on opposite sides of the country. The BMW course in Greenville looks like a winner to me as I'm often in South Carolina.

    Neduro, one of our own has several offerings also. PM him as google failed me.

    The BMW MOA GS Giant program also looks interesting.

    If you want to learn trials, the former champ Gary LePlante has a school here in SoCal that comes highly recommended. I haven't gone myself but hope to attend at some point in the near future.
