We established the Ornsby Adventure Riding School (Ornsby ARS) to provide training to riders in small groups where the primary focus is on improving skills and competency in riding on dirt or metal roads. Adventure riding is a huge growth sector in motorcycling—which makes sense given the stunning country we live in! But for many motorcyclists—particularly if your riding experience is mainly on tarmac—tackling metalled or dirt roads can be a real issue, and as we all know—motorcycling is a confidence game.
We cover a host of skills on the Ornsby ARS courses, which will benefit riders of any level who have limited or no off-road experience—but please note; these courses DO NOT cover hard enduro or advanced adventure skills.
You DO NOT need to ride a ‘pure’ adventure bike to attend the Ornsby ARS Level 1 course—Taking to the Shingle. Any motorcycle (including LAMs approved) is suitable, provided it can make the open road speed limit, is Plated & Registered, and holds a current WOF.
To attend the Ornsby ARS Level 2 course—Going Back of Beyond, we recommend a bike with off-road capabilities (see the list in the course information). If in doubt—give us a call.
