5-DAY RIDE-OUT LITE

Download the 5-Day Trip Packet

So, you hopped on the bandwagon and joined the adventure motorcycling clan. You purchased an adventure bike, taken an off-road motorcycle training or two, and have some experience camping.

But…. you have lingering questions about outfitting your bike and hesitancy when venturing into backcountry riding locations for a night or more because of the unexpected.

In the Ro5 Ride-Out Lite training you’ll get answers to these questions and more. You’ll build your confidence, learn self-reliant skills in the wilderness, enhance your riding ability 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.

Welcome to the 5-Day Ride-Out Lite, we fill in the gaps where other trainings fall short.

Combining adventure motorcycle training and the self-reliant backcountry skills needed to ride in remote locations longer term.

Breaking the norm in knowledge, skills and training, join us and experience the skills necessary to ride these fully loaded bikes off the beaten path, while at the same time passing on the self-reliant wilderness skills necessary to make backcountry travel comfortable and safe. In addition we throw in some modern survival skills, just in case things take a turn 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 Self-Reliant skills to stay safe on and off the bike in the remote regions of the world.

This is the training to:

  • Learn the Rule of Five for comfort, self-reliant and modern survival skills
  • Optimize security and comfort in wild places
  • Learn about proper planning (A, B, C’s of how and what to pack on your bike)
  • Access a deeper appreciation for self-reliant skills
  • Build confidence in off-road motorcycle handling and technique with loaded bikes
  • Understand how terrain dictates riding technique
  • Learn the West 38 Moto Five Elements for optimized motorcycle handling
  • Experience real-world off-road motorcycle riding scenarios on a two-day Northern New Mexico Tour

Ro5 brings the perfect blend of what it takes to travel backcountry, 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 of on site training we venture-out on an overnight northern New Mexico tour to solidify your newly found skills in practical settings. On this adventure participants have access to a 3,000 private acre ADV motorcycle training ground and the Ro5 all-inclusive wilderness training center for learning of the self-reliant skills. Guests provide their own tent, sleeping pad, and sleeping bag for the two-day tour and own off-road ride.

A detailed gear list is provided after registration is complete.
