About this tour

This tour is perfect if you are new in your desire to explore the world of adventure touring, or if you simply need to cast off bad habits and refine your existing skills. To add to the training, we tour the vicinity of beautiful Moab.

MotoDiscovery pioneered the concept of combining a motorcycle tour with ADV motorcycle training. The ability to take newly acquired skills and actively use them in a touring environment enables participants to better retain those skills. The success of this program centers on a curriculum, the essence we credit to be drawn from some of the best trainers in America, building a MotoDiscovery training experience unique in character. Most importantly, this motorcycle training tour addresses the fundamentals of off-road adventure riding, in a small group, low intensity nonjudgmental atmosphere. This tour is perfect if you are new in your desire to explore the world of adventure touring, or if you simply need to cast off bad habits and refine your existing skills. To add to the training, we tour the vicinity of beautiful Moab. The Moab Immersion MotorcycleTraining Tour is the perfect platform for a private event for you, your family, club, dealership and friends. What a great gift to a budding adventure riding enthusiast. Groups are small and sell out early. Rentals are available or you can use your own motorcycle. Call MotoDiscovery for additional details.

 

  • The Moab Immersion Motorcycle Training Tour is just the beginning. Future adventures to far corners of the world can start right here.
  • The 3-Step Hideaway, the venue for much of our training, is remote, funky, simple yet perfectly accommodating with home cooked meals, rustic yet comfortable accommodations and views of the La Sal’s in one direction, and the mountains of Telluride in the other.
  • Our confidence-building ADV motorcycle training curriculum is built just for us, to serve you. We’ve called on some of the best to nurture our program. We gladly give credit to Bill Dragoo of DART, Jimmy Lewis, Dusty Wessels at West38Moto and others, who’ve inspired and guided us.
  • Small groups help ensure that you receive the individual attention for a more productive and rewarding training experience.
  • Moab is the center of outdoor adventure in this corner of the American Southwest. While here we urge you to enjoy the Canyonlands and Arches National Park, raft the beautiful Green River or ride the White Rim Trail. So much to do and see.

FAQ

This question is always asked and the answer is the same. The difficulty depends on your experience, physicality and spirit. There is NO mandatory single track on this tour. This ride combines excellent dirt roads and 2-track trails with twisty pavement sections that can’t be missed. All portions of the route are drivable by our support truck which will follow behind the group or meet at predetermined intersections on all days of the tour. This tour is best suited for smaller street-legal dual-sport motorcycles between 250-800CC equipped with proper off-road tires.

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.

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 10 riders, you can count on getting their personal instruction.

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.

Yes. Our support vehicle will be with us for the duration of the event to carry your personal gear, tools, water and provide riders with the confidence to ride their own pace knowing we have your back. Non-riding participants (space is limited please give us a call to confirm) may also join us in the support vehicle.

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.

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 MotoDiscovery Rentals for details. Rental Terms and Conditions.

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.

While each training tour is subject to itinerary modifications, we often use the 3-Step Hideaway as a training venue and to accommodate our overnight stays. Situated in the high desert, about 50 miles south of the City of Moab, here are a few things you should know:

  • There is no cell service nor internet service available at 3-Step. There are points nearby where one can get a signal, but for the most part, prepare to be ‘off the grid’ for a few days.
  • Regarding alcohol, Utah has strict alcohol and tax laws that regulate the sale of beer, wine, and spirits. 3-Step has a variety of domestic and micro-brew beer for sale in the Cantina. If you prefer wine or spirits, you must arrange to bring your own or contact us and we can arrange to pick you up some in Colorado on our way to the event.
  • Bring a headlamp (or a flashlight) – Because the 3-Step is completely solar powered, you will need a light to get around after dark. The buildings and cabins all have electric lights, however.
  • We cannot guarantee a single room for you at 3-Step Hideaway. Single occupancy is, however, available for all other accommodations following our departure from 3-Step.

Higher quality service and better individual attention to your training needs will result when groups are smaller. Group size is limited to ten (10) tour participants plus staff however historically the group size is between 6 to 8 participants..

Yes. We have a comfortable overland support vehicle that can accommodate a limited number of passengers in comfort and style. If you are planning to ride 2-up, please understand that this is not an event to learn to safely ride off-road with a passenger.

Arrangements can be made to store your vehicle and trailer in Grand Junction at the rendezvous hotel. Please contact the hotel directly with information on your vehicle and trailer to confirm.

This will be covered in our pre-trip communication emails along with other valuable preparation tips.  Keep in mind that space is limited in the support vehicle and gear can be stowed in Grand Junction at the hotel while on the tour.

There is no tent camping on this event.

Now. For a better touring experience, we keep our groups small which frequently results in tours “sold out”.
