Jump to: Classes & Clinics
RawHyde is excited to announce Adventure Days 2017 at our brand new facility in the heart of the
Mojave Desert. So what’s Adventure Days? Well – it’s an event from RawHyde designed to help you
learn anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Adventure Riding plus an opportunity
to take some great rides, enjoy the camaraderie of a shared “Adventure” and generally have a whole
bunch of fun with great people over a long weekend.
The event is part Rally, Part Expo, and part Trade show!
Many companies from the Adventure Market will be present showing off their latest products (See vendor list below) and there will be a strong focus on education and knowledge, we'll be hosting GPS seminars, suspension and bike set up classes, tire changing & bead breaking clinics, off road riding clinics, packing clinics, etc. Our friends from Klim will host a detailed class on how today's high tech riding suits repel water, protect you… and keep you comfortable at the same time. There will be clinics or classes on every imaginable topic. The list of classes and clinics is growing continuously.
There will also be daily rides - some will be guided others will be self -guided via GPS tracks which will be provided for you.
We'll have evening entertainment including live music and a sneak preview of the highly anticipated Expedition 65 movie which is an epic travelogue about an adventure ride that went from jungles of Colombia to the top of the Andes at nearly 17,000 feet elevation and on Ushuaia, Argentina. 10,000 miles of adventure over a two month period in late 2016
But wait… there's more! On top of all the classes, clinics and fun; all your food, beverages, camping, guided rides etc. are all included too… as well as a *souvenir shirt.
So – the bottom line is this: If you're serious (or curious) about Adventure Riding; this is an excellent opportunity to both experience and learn about everything related to our world. Three days of fun, learning, and excitement at RawHyde’s new facility in the Mojave.
*Souvenir shirt is based on availability.

The Basics of Dirt riding (for noobies) -
This two hour session is half lecture and half practical. The “on bike” portion of the class will focus on Standing while riding, plus basic turning and braking. (Taught by RawHyde Trainers)
Skidding on dirt (It’s not like on the
Street riders are taught that “skidding is bad” on pavement, plus todays ABS systems have removed the potential of skidding from the average riders thought process. BUT skidding is very much a part of off road riding. This basic skidding class will allow the rider to “get a feel for the skid” in a safe and controlled manner. It’s also a lot of fun to learn to skid a big bike ! 1 hour – taught by RawHyde Trainers.
