RT to GS and Off Road Skills Course

Post by Sukahutan » Fri Oct 04, 2019 8:44 am

Just changed my 1150RT for a GS1200 Triple Black and what a difference. The bike practically rides itself. Very pleased.

I've risen some enduro and trials, 250s, and not quite grasping how a big bike does it so thinking of doing a course with Off Road Skills Ltd in Wales. Anyone comments on their courses would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Do it!

Fantastic courses. I've done Level 1 & 2 and the Brecon Beacons Adventure. Given me the confidence to take my GS off road in teh Peaks, Wales and at Sweet Lamb on their forestry rides.

Hopefully booking Level 3 for next year.

The BMW off road skills course, I did it in 2003. Was good vfm then. I had a Pegaso 650 back then, and first rode an 1150 GSA - off road only- for part of the weekend. Most was on an F650GS. Great instruction. Fabulous weekend.

They have the GS1250 now as well as some others. Looking at the videos, I can't wait, looks like a lot of fun. I had to juggle dates with work and other commitments as well as coming from France where I live. Opted for a date in August and on booking, I thought to myself the date sounded familiar for a reason. Now realise that it's my partner's birthday, plus it's her sixtieth and she French. I doubt she'll ever forgive me. Haven't told her yet.
