If this adventure riding caper is new to you and you constantly find yourself in over your head or simply not having the confidence to get off-road then our Core (Level 1) Adventure Rider Training course can help you get set for adventures.
Many riders come into adventure riding from a road riding background and posses little knowledge or experience in how to handle slippery surfaces and approach obstacles. Or perhaps you have been riding off-road but are more accustomed to throwing around a little dirt bike? Riding adventure bikes, particularly heavier multi-cylinder bikes, demands a different skill set from either road or Enduro/MX riding.
Maschine have immense experience in organising adventure rides and rider training courses. Since our inception we’ve ridden with over 2,000 riders which has helped us identify the common challenges riders face but also the desire riders have to become better at their chosen hobby.
For us, our goal is to help you as an adventure rider be armed with the skills, knowledge and confidence in your ability to get out there and ride and explore all those great places that motorcycles can take you.
Think of this course as the foundation of skills you need to set yourself up for future growth. Like most things in life, you can’t grow on a shaky foundation.
The curriculum of the course includes the following Core (level 1 beginner) skills:
Ideally if you come out of our course with improved skills, knowledge and confidence to explore further then we’ve achieved our goal.
Helping create a path for you to develop fluid control over your motorcycle so it becomes a natural extension of your body. Learn how to put the bike where you want with confidence.

Lead coach for all Maschine training courses is company director Nick Selleck. He is a Motorcycling Australia accredited coach and has been riding off-road for 40 years. He takes pride in being a smooth, safe and consistent rider. Several years spent racing MX, Enduro and Supermoto gave Nick a great skill set to call upon. More recently he has clocked up big kilometres each year riding in both Australia and overseas. This constantly tops up his knowledge pool and keeps his experience fresh and relevant to the students he teaches.
Assisting Nick at our Maschine courses will often be coaches that themselves have enormous experience in their own right. We like to work with the best available in the business to ensure the quality and consistency of our training products.

Riding gear wise we expect you to wear your full protective kit you would normally wear on a ride.
