    Off Road Training @ BMW, SC

    I'm considering the 2 day off road training course offered by BMW at their SC facility. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who has attended that might give me an idea of how worthwhile it was, how enjoyable, and any bits of wisdom. Thanks in advance.

    Great folks:

    My kids did it a couple years ago with BMW guys SC, all great! Can't go wrong. GS CROWD at the National Rally will be in large numbers too, so join up with rides/classes and learn in MO. this year too at the rally. The Mo Bigga GS Tour is a must if you're into learning or better. It begins before the rally a few days(around 100$ extra, WORTH every penny), per Ian S.(Visian) and (Newstar) here on this forum...Randy

    I attended the shortened version of this course the MOA sponsored a couple years back. It was awesome! Pouring rain the day we were there and it was slick as.....well you know. The instructors were excellent! Patient and explained each exercise in detail and then we practiced it. All in all a great facility with great instructors and a good time! I certainly recommend it!

    Polarbear's comment is dead on... the GS Giant is an awesome program. There you can meet like minded riders, have fun and learn a ton! I would definitely get on that program too! The "Giant" is shaping up to be another great rally event!

    Thanks for the responses. Some of those FB pictures are a bit scary! I'm not sure how many times in one day I can lift a GSA! LOL In any event, I'll be signing up for a class this spring.

    Not sure I can make the GS Giant, because we'll be in Colorado, hopefully riding paved and dirt roads. May be too much fun to ever leave.
