    Hey everyone! I am looking for some reviews on Trail Tours dirt bike and ATV School. I have ridden bikes a good part of my life. The last 10 years has been street oriented and I am now switching to dual sport riding, concentrating on "off road" riding primarily. I want to step my game up a whole bunch! How is this school for assessing your current skills and building from there?

    There's a reason the ODSC goes to Trailtours year after year for the spring training day: it's a good school! Everyone always has a good time and learn good off-road riding skills.

    Join us for the club's training day on May 14th, you won't regret. See topic in "other organized rides & events".

    I attended their full day ride a few years ago with my wife's company coworkers. It was really great. They split people into beginners and experienced rides. Those who never rode learned on the lawn in the morning then they took them to the forest for afternoon ride. Experienced riders went right in. I've never done so much riding in the forest before (had a BMW Dakar until recently and it was too heavy to do single track stuff). They provided bikes and all the gear.

    Last year I attended ODSC training and again it as really good. This time everyone brought own bikes, be you can arrange for one to rent I believe. Lots of practice, slow turns, braking, acceleration, body position, riding in sand, ruts, over logs (I like that part the most as it built a lot of confidence), hill climbing and descending. In the afternoon we went into the forest for probably 1 hour ride. The whole event was run by one of the ODSC members (Brian I believe was his name). This year I am going to attend as well if time permits.

    I highly recommend!
