2 Day Ride
The 2-day trip is designed to get you beyond the training course and out into the real world of adventure riding! Our overnight camping trip will help you experience what it’s like to pack up your bike, head into the backcountry, and live off of only the items you packed on your bike. During the course of the ride (and whenever the unexpected opportunity arises) we’ll throw in a few different skills trainings to get you more comfortable for when you take your own adventures. Before heading to camp, we’ll fill up with gas and buy our food for the evening. Once at camp, our group will build a fire, cook our meals together, and reminisce about the adventures we’ve just experienced. This 2-day trip is only a taste of what we have to offer. If you are strapped for time or just trying to figure out this whole adventure riding thing, this trip is for you!

WHAT DO I NEED TO PACK?
Each rider will be responsible for purchasing and carrying their own food. We will either stop at a restaurant and dine as a group or shop at a market to get food to cook at camp. We will help you and will also be as accommodating as possible to special diet needs.
Proper riding gear is a must! We will cover this with you in more detail when we speak about the trip. Clothes are an area where people tend to over pack. Besides riding gear you will need layers for constant weather changes and sleeping in a tent. You may want a separate set of clothes/shoes to wear around camp and in town if we go to a restaurant. When we talk about scheduling your trip, we will send you a spreadsheet of ideas on what to bring.
If you have a good set of tools it is not a bad idea to bring them. Some people like to be self-sufficient. If you don’t have any or want to save room we should have enough tools to fix or repair most bikes on the fly.
YOU WILL NEED YOUR OWN GEAR IN THE FORM OF THE FOLLOWING:
If you don’t have any of the following gear contact us and we can assist you with purchasing recommendations or rental outlets
- Sleeping Bag
- Sleeping Pad
- Cooking stove (optional, if you have one please bring it, if you don’t I need to know ahead of time so I can plan)
WHAT DO I NEED TO PREPARE FOR WITH ADVENTURE RIDING?
Packing: You will want to pack lightly, efficiently, and in a way that encourages proper bike performance. We can help you with that! We have been on many lightweight backpacking adventures and have logged tens of thousands of miles camping in remote areas off many different motorcycles.
WHAT KIND OF MOTORCYCLE DO I NEED?
Any motorcycle can be converted into a dual sport bike. Heck, we know people who have converted their Harleys into adventure bikes! But if you have one that’s already capable of off-road riding, you can get started a little sooner. Many brands of bikes are readily available and having ridden and owned most of the major OEM’s popular dual sport bikes we can help you find the bike that fits you best.
WHAT ELSE DOES W38M OFFER?
Our goal is to share our passion for riding off road on adventure and dual sport motorcycles with everyone else who doesn’t know quite how to get into this but really wants to! We were all new at this once as well, and it we had challenges finding good information about products, trips, groups, and training classes. We want to be your resource for finding not only everything you need, but the best the industry has to offer. (And then go riding!)
WHAT IS AND IS NOT INCLUDED?
On these trips we will all be responsible for paying for our own meals, lodging and fuel. Whether we purchase food from a market and cook it over our campfire, or eat in a restaurant we will dine as a group. If weather or other forces push us towards a hotel, we will all be responsible for our own rooms. Most of the time we will stay in campsites and most will be free so we won’t need to worry about that expense.
