5-DAY RIDE-OUT LITE

Welcome to the 5-Day Ride-Out Lite, an abridged version of our premier 7-Day Ride-Out.  You’ll receive the same influential training and guest experience at the Rule of Five base minus gourmet chef-prepared meals, Ro5 lodging and survival overnight which are included in the 7-Day Ride-Out experience.

Combine your Adventure Motorcycle Training and Wilderness Survival Skills. Immerse yourself in the Rule of Five base camp experience coupled with off-road training featuring our dual sport experts from West 38 Moto.

You’re out for a day ride, visiting remote mountain passes and pristine wilderness settings. So far, so good…until an unexplainable mechanical failure occurs. The sun is setting. You’re cold, hungry, and you know walking out is not in the cards. Bottom line, you’re in for a night out in the wilderness. What do you do?  How do you fix your bike? How do you stay warm, eat, and call for rescue?

In the Ro5 5-Day Ride-Out Lite training you’ll get answers to these questions and more. But mostly, you’ll build your confidence, learn survival skills, and gain a clear understanding of what to do when things take an unexpected turn in the saddle. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

This is a unique opportunity to join with experts in their respective fields, collaborating together to offer something that is valuable, inspiring, and not found anywhere else. A partnership between Ro5 and West 38 Moto is a rarity and is the first training of this kind. We offer you the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds: Adventure Motorcycle Training and Wilderness Survival Skills to stay safe on and off the bike in the remote regions of the world.

  • Learn about proper planning
  • Access a deeper appreciation for self-reliant skills

Ro5 brings the perfect blend of our ancestral living skills, along with the all important modern survival skills that have been specifically designed for travel on two wheels. In addition to presentations of “core concepts,” you will create a base camp, learn survival priorities, expertly build a fire, learn to disinfect water, and much more. 

The West 38 Moto curriculum has been designed for the “path less traveled.” In addition, presentations on the Five Elements for optimal riding will be reviewed. This will include appropriate transfer of weight, the “triple threat,” various riding techniques for differing terrain, body positioning, and the psychological component of commitment. 

After three days and nights of on site training we venture-out on an overnight loop ride to solidify your newly found skills in practical settings.  On this adventure participants will have access to the Ro5 base, which includes a kitchen to cook your meals, central fire, toilets, custom wilderness showers, and all trainings. Guests provide their own meals, snacks, tent, sleeping pad and sleeping bag for lodging. Guests also provide their own off-road ride or Ro5 can help arrange for hire.

A detailed gear list is provided after registration is complete.
