I'm looking for recommendations on off road training relevant to dual sport riding (Mike's excellent post is noted - I don't want to hijack that thread). It's been over 30 years since I was bashing around in the woods and both bike and rider are heavier and less nimble now. I'm not planning to cross the Sahara, but do want to gain confidence on those loose soft surfaces. Some good DVD material out there but an instructor should be valuable at first? Numerous advertisements in ON and others but I'd like feedback from those of you who have fist hand experience. If I can find something in the South Central part of the country so much the better!
