5 reasons you should add this MotoDiscovery feature destination to your bucket list

The South American continent offers a wealth of adventure riding treasures. We’ve been riding there since 1995, and by far the most popular region is the southern reaches of Chile and Argentina known as Patagonia.

Technically it is bound by the Atlantic Ocean to the East the Pacific to the West, sandwiching the Andean mountain range, a stunning system of fjords with temperate rainforests, glacial lakes, and barren windswept grasslands. It is this exact dynamic that offers you a thrilling motorcycle riding experience, unlike any other on the planet.

Here are 5 good reasons why you should add this Patagonia motorcycle tour to your bucket list:

The Arizona Immersion ADV Training

We make it easy. A short and sweet training and wintertime ride in the heart of the American Southwest.

This tour is best suited for riders looking to expand their ADV and off road riding skills. It is categorized as ADVENTURE Training. You need not be an expert, but the novice will be tested. We consider this the perfect small bike tour. Riders may use their own motorcycles or rent one from MotoDiscovery. If you choose to ride a heavier motorcycle larger than 650cc, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you have the experience and physicality to match the size and performance of such a motorcycle. Arizona presents a unique opportunity to get away and ride in the middle of winter. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has superb flight schedules. This can be a seamless tour and training experience where all you need to do is show up and enjoy a fun, learn and get exceptional coaching in a small group.  Early reservations are encouraged. Call us if you have questions.

NOTE: This tour, and all MotoDiscovery USA Back Road tours are highly subject to itinerary changes, even last minute, due to weather, forest fire threats, landslide road closures and ongoing research. Please accept this as the nature of adventure travel and count on MotoDiscovery serving your best interests and that of the enjoyment and safety of the group.

Who is a good candidate for a training tour?

If you’ve never been on the dirt but have the desire and physical means this is a great start. More experienced off-road riders will also gain from this training tour as we focus on the fundamentals often lost over time.

What kind of curriculum can I expect?

We start off with a classroom session, move to an area where posture, body position, and other important basics are learned. By the end of the first day of training, slow speed skills are demonstrated and exercised. The second day we get into the real world environment of off-road touring, gradually elevating the technicality of the ride as you feel you are ready to advance. The key here is that the groups are small (maximum of 10). The training is geared to your personal progress and we don’t move ahead until you are ready.

Should I rent a bike or bring my own?

If you have one of the “mega” touring machines such as the BMW R1200GS, and you have not been off road with it, you may benefit from riding a lighter weight rental where the weight and performance will not be so overwhelming – so renting should be considered.  Fear of dropping your bike is also inhibiting. Contact us to reserve a rental today.

What can you tell me about your rental motorcycles?

Rental offerings vary from season to season. Each unit is accessorized to offer optimum comfort and enhanced protection and rideability. Popular models include Suzuki DRZ400 and the venerable Yamaha WR250R, lightweight but perfectly suitable for the dual purpose role of road and off road travel demands of this event. Locations in Grand Junction, Colorado and Phoenix, Arizona – Contact us for further details.

Can you tell me about flight and transportation options to get to the event?

Regarding arrival airports and transportation:

  • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has superb flight schedules. We will then transport to the Apache Junction area and start the training

I’m an experienced off-road rider but a little rusty. Can this course be good for me?

Of course. You will advance more quickly. You can then concentrate on those techniques that minimize stress and physical exertion, reducing fatigue, riding more smoothly and pushing the limits of your motorcycle. But we must stress that this course is not about speed. To the contrary. Slow speed maneuvering skills are essential. Managing all levels of terrain comfortably from rocky surfaces to loose sand is where we want to take you and even experienced riders will find this “tune up” to lead to more enjoyable riding.

Who will be coaching me?

Our coaches are the best. They not only demonstrate but they explain the physics of what makes for proficient riding. Safety is first. Always. Our coaches are touring people just like you and they have traveled internationally, experienced the challenges that come with international touring where the best roads and treasures are found off the pavement. Because we keep our groups to no more than 8 riders, you can count on getting their personal instruction.

Can you organize a training tour just for me, my club or family?

Yes. Customized tours and training is a MotoDiscovery specialty. It requires lead time so early planning is needed. The ideal season is spring and fall. Contact us for consultation.
