Official BMW Off-Road Training
in North America.
BMW Off-Road Academy
Adventure Riding: that is what exists beyond the end of the tarmac. Over 95% of the world's roads are unpaved, so if you don't like to (or can't) ride in the dirt,
you'll find yourself confined to a mere 5% of the planet.
The BMW Off-Road Academy has something fun and exhilarating for any Adventure Rider. Whether you are new to the sport or a seasoned veteran; our training programs, rallies and special events truly provide the definition of adventure.
Located in southern California, The BMW Off-Road Academy (presented by: RawHyde Adventures) is one of only 8 places in the world where you can learn to ride the BMW GS the way it was meant to be ridden. The Academy is tucked in the foothills above Los Angeles on 500 acres dedicated to training BMW GS riders.
For over a decade RawHyde Adventures has been operating a rider training program known as "Adventure Camp" and via a formal arrangement with BMW of North America we are pleased to offer an "official" BMW training program known as the BMW Off-road Academy.
The GS family of motorcycles are fairly "heavy" for machines that are meant to go off-road. It takes some specialized skills to get the most from your investment. We operate the academy following a curriculum designed by BMW to enable you to develop those specific talents. The skills you will learn were forged from the lessons learned in the grueling Paris Dakar rally and years of training experiences at BMW's own school in Hechtlingen Germany.
BMW would like you to be able to enjoy your machine to its fullest and so would we. Learn how at the BMW Off-Road Academy, offered by RawHyde Adventures — your official BMW school.
