    Sad but true Vic.

    It would be nice if one of us was rich enough to buy up enough property to do something like this place.

    And not worry or care about worrying that:
    it makes a profit,
    being sued,
    putting up with and placating peoples crap or having to run their stupid dumb ass off.

    Any volunteers out there?

    Just as soon as this lottery ticket pays off...that is my plan.

    Of course I have been counting on it for about 10 years now and still no luck so I wouldn't hold your breath :-).

    That's a good write up. My brothers and I have that penciled in for next year some time..........:)

    We've also considered the one day skills class and/or combining the one day off road skills class with the on road skills class.

    We'll have to see how the scheduling/finances shake out.......

    Thanks for sharing. I've been wanting to take that course for years and will now publicly commit to it in 2020. Let's do it AST! Anyone else?

    I've been studying to be a lottery winner for a couple of years now (part of my 401 'Lima' retirement plan). So far I've got picking one winning number down pretty good. I'm having a little trouble picking two winning numbers at the same time, but one of these days I'm gonna figure it out and before you know it I'll have the skillz to get all 6. :D

    Do it! You'll gain regardless of current riding capabilities.

    I did a 'sampler' through multiple sessions over two days by the DART guys at Overland Expo East a couple years ago and it totally transformed my big bike riding capabilities. Not like Clark Kent to Superman, but pulled my out of the big bike off-road Noob club to at least 'capable' and more than willing to do more dumb stuff.

    AST236,
    Here is a shorter, closer and cheaper version:

    I come to you house and repeatedly push your BMW on to its side in front of you.

    When your face stops looking like this:

    We load up and go to the Turkey Trot at Blackwater. Link up with the "Big girl" ride, then it's monkey see monkey do.
    That night release the "kracken" with your mentors (i.e. guys who helped pickup your bike:muutt)
    Spend $1500 saved on wine, women and song or other worthy ventures.:lol3

    Easyrider 58,
    It is with no regrets that I must inform you that you do not qualify for the short house call BMW offroad school (After watching what you do to a BMW offroad in one of your videos :muutt)

    Went for 450 mile two day solo trip. I was cold most of the time.

    the RT just eats up the twisties.

    had a hamburger with an attitude and saw a sign that explains to truckers that 48 ft is also longer than 30 ft.

    Anyone looking for a pair of Asterisk knee braces? Updated model with velcro straps. Size large. Price $250.00. I will be at the Turkey Trot with them if they do sell first. Overall in good condition.
