Subject: RA Rally Adventure Rider Clinic, July 23-26, Canaan Valley, WV


This course consists of 4 hours of seminar and off-road motorcycle riding instruction
on a closed course that has been groomed for beginners, yet has challenging areas
for more advanced riders to hone their skills. The course enables riders to transition
from the basics of off-roading to the more complex techniques needed for multi-day
trips on dual-sport machines. This course combines the skill-building of the basic
off-road course with advanced techniques for single track and obstacles.

You’ll learn skills that enable you to transition from asphalt to double track, single track,
and fire trails. The fundamentals of straight lines, turning, body posture, and braking are
combined to handle obstacles, stream crossings, and tight single track.


We'll teach you the fundamentals and demonstrate real-world challenges so that riders
can assess terrain and risk, then make good choices using skills practiced here. It's a
course that builds confidence and breaks down barriers without destroying you and your gear.


There will be four classes offered during the rally. including one on Thursday afternoon,
two on Friday, and one on Saturday morning. Morning classes will begin at 8:00am and
run till 12:00 noon. The afternoon class will begin at 1:00pm and run till 4:00pm. Classes
will be assigned on a first come, first served basis, so register now to confirm a spot
n your preferred class!

MotoMark1 Adventure Rider Clinic. Sgt. Mark Brown, aka MotoMark1, has been a
North Carolina State Highway Patrolman for over eighteen years and is the training coordinator
within the Special Operations Motor Unit. He is also the lead police motor instructor for North
Carolina State Highway Patrol and when not on his R1200RTP, Mark can often be found
helping “civilian” students understand the finer points of off-road riding.

Fortunately for the RA, Mark has agreed to teach several 4-hour adventure riding clinics
designed around his eight hour MSF-certified class. If you have aspirations of taking your
GS to Baja, Copper Canyon or even on a local fire road, consider Mark’s clinic as an
investment in your future. Regardless of your skill level – beginner or advanced – Mark
and his instructors work with each rider to help them identify and improve any shortcomings.
This is accomplished by working on a number of essential and fundamental off-road skills
that include, but are not limited to, posture/riding position, turning, riding over obstacles,
climbing, traversing and descending hills, and proper braking techniques. Each exercise is
also designed to build confidence and foster a positive mental attitude, which, in the end,
facilitates learning. As a result, everyone improves.
