Do you want to conquer your fear of riding in sand?

Then our 2 day training ride will help get you comfortable riding in sand and other loose surfaces.  It will arm you with the skills and knowledge to make you a safer and more confident rider in sand.

This weekend is not held at a traditional training location, you’ll ride through off-road areas with lots of sandy tracks to practice on.  It is in a real world riding environment which is the best training location!

Course Content

Some of the things we’ll teach you over the weekend include optimal body position, braking techniques, riding ruts, how to recover from a bog situation, fatigue management and bike setup including advice on ABS and traction control systems.

The Format

2 Day Course – Echuca, VIC

Arrive Friday night at our training location, or by 7:30am Saturday morning.  We’ll ride tracks on Saturday and stay overnight.  On Sunday, we’ll ride back to our start location and depart mid-afternoon to head home.

1 Day Course – Stockton Beach, NSW

Arrive Friday night at Anna Bay, or by 7:30am Saturday morning.  We’ll start with a briefing and then ride the full day and depart mid-afternoon to head home. Or if you are too tired, stay another night afterwards.  It’s a fairly intense day of riding, so please be aware of fatigue.

 

About Your Instructors

Our lead coach for this course will be Maschine’s own Nick Selleck.He is a Motorcycling Australia Level 1 accredited coach and has been riding off-road for 40 years.  He takes pride in being a smooth, safe and consistent rider. Nick has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share when it comes to off-road riding. Nick grew up riding off-road and after several years competing in Motocross, Enduro and Supermotard he has spent the last 8 years planning and organising adventure tours.

His experience in adventure riding over the past 8 years includes exploring the iconic regions of; Victorian High Country, Tasmania, Flinders Ranges, Corner Country and Birdsville, researching and retracing the Burke & Wills expedition route – Melbourne to Karumba, Tanami Track, Kimberley region including Gibb River Road, Arnhem Land, Savannah Way and Gulf Country and exploring the length of the Great Diving Range amongst others. Throughout most of these trips he has shared them with many riders so has not only learnt from his own experience but noted the challenges other riders have faced.

It would be fair to say few riders in Australia could claim to have such a broad knowledge of riding and managing motorcycle tours in as many regions as Nick Selleck. Others may have more intimate knowledge of specific regions but few could match Nick’s spread of knowledge. This all adds to Nick’s ability to relate to riders challenges and help create a path for them to improve their riding skill.

Where additional coaches are required for courses we choose to work with the best of the best. Coaches are chosen not only for their riding skill but also their personality to ensure they can explain often complex riding techniques which can add valuable input to the training courses.

 

Important Details
