49er GS Training Courses

One of the top goals of the BMW Motorcycle Club of Northern California is safety through rider education, and as a Club we regularly offer road and track training opportunities to our membership.

Recognizing that the GS is a big part of the BMW brand and the ride of choice of a lot of our Rally participants, we use the backdrop of the 49er to focus on the off-road side of the spectrum. 

This year, we are proud to work with Raw Hyde Adventures to bring the best training experience to the 49er! RawHyde. For more than 16 years RawHyde has been providing training services to riders who want to gain more confidence and comfort using your adventure bike to do everything from “exploring the world” to roaming the forest service roads and trails in your backroad. Rawhyde is the only company in North America that is both sponsored and sanctioned by BMW as an official training center!

If you are a BMW MOA member part of your cost may be covered through a Paul B Scholarship.  Check out this link for an application. 

Be sure and attend our hosted reception for all participants after the training in the Bier Garden from 5 to 6 PM.

Course Overview

Rawhyde is bringing their outstanding training curriculum to the 49er and offering two classes each day, a beginner/intermediate course suitable for riders with no off-road experience or minimal training who want to learn the skills necessary to ride in the dirt, as well as an intermediate/advanced course that is best for those that already know the basics and want to continue their development and build greater confidence as well as learn new skills to help you in more challenging areas.  

The Rawhyde instructors will use scaled down versions of the Intro to Adventure, Intro Plus and Next Step courses taught at the Rawhyde facilities in California and Colorado.  Talk to anyone who as taking a Rawhyde class and they will tell you it was an outstanding experience both in terms of the training and skills learned as well as the camaraderie with your fellow students.

We are taking full advantage of the great off-road riding of the Northern Sierra Mountain Range by following up the course with a guided off-road ride in the afternoon that will put your skills to the test.   You'll end the day with a celebration in the Beer Garden with your fellow students.

As an added bonus 50% of your course fee will be credited to the cost of a Rawhyde training course at their adventure training sites in California and Colorado.  

Space is limited for these courses so don't delay in signing up. For more details and links to the registration page check out the course pages.
