Off-Road Training (Including Ladies Only) FREE for Husqvarna Owners

Rally Connex will be hosting off-road training classes sponsored by Studio Cycle Group and Husqvarna Canada on Saturday May 6th, Sunday May 7th, and Saturday May 13th, 2017. Each class will consist of classroom sessions, in field training sessions, and trail rides.

  • Saturday May 6th’s training class will be geared toward Enduro type motorcycles with more aggressive tires.
  • Sunday May 7th’s training class will be geared towards larger adventure bikes and covering all types of on and off road techniques.
  • Saturday May 13th’s training class will be a ladies-only event put on entirely by female riders.

Classroom Component

Mornings start with a 7:30 AM sign in and an 8:30 AM start time in Haydon, Ontario, about 1-1.5 hours east north east of the city. Before getting on two wheels, riders will brief on basic GPS functions, route navigation, and protective equipment. Riders will then move over to their motorcycles to discuss topics like motorcycle set up and body position, how to attack obstacles, weight and balance management, and luggage.

Ride Component

Motorcyclists will then gear up and follow the routes to the various training areas. Each training area will have a focus area and a set of skill training drills led by instructors. Lessons and drills will help riders understand and improve on clutch and throttle control, standing and sitting, tackling mud, braking, power turns, deep sand, rocks, logs, and emergency maneuvers.

After a host-provided lunch break, the afternoon sessions will focus on off-road riding techniques and practice, follow by another GPS route. Motorcycles of all sizes are welcome, and the event promises to be the perfect way to shake out the cobwebs from a long winter, and learn some new techniques.

Husqvarna Demo Rides

Studio Cycle Group, Toronto’s Husqvarna dealershipwill be on hand with a fleet of Husqvarna dirt bikes to test drive during class.

Editor’s note:

It’s great to see the motorcycle community coming together to provide riders with new experiences and training. In this case we see a manufacturer (Husqvarna) working along with trained motorcycle guides (Rally Connex) as well as with a Husky dealership (Studio Cycle Group). The fact that these three are even putting on a ladies-only event the following weekend to help support women in the sport is even better. Props to all three for putting this great initiative. Have fun, everyone!

The Worst Motorcycles of 2013

The Worst Motorcycles of 2013: The Negative Nancy Report Special post by resident guest blogger Happy Gilmore

Each January you’re filled with a renewed sense of possibility. A new year, a new you. You boast to your friends and co-workers that you’re going to be shaving 20lbs, quit smoking and open that savings account. As January becomes February you can’t stand to face yourself in the mirror each morning as you’ve gained 5lbs, smoke a pack a day and you’ve just received a past-due notice for an unpaid credit card bill. Have a no fear though, you aren’t alone.

Around this same time of year the motorcycle show circuit has been across Canada and all over the United States. 2013 is packed with new entry-level rides, fancy new scooters, shiny new dual purpose motorcycles and so much more. But you’ll probably notice that there are a few bikes that you’ve seen before, and might be looking a little tired. Or you might have noticed one or two bikes that you scratch your head about thinking “What? Who is going to buy that?”

Broken-down by motorcycle category, like a list of unfulfilled resolutions, I have compiled my opinion for the worst motorcycles available this year. Feel free to disagree; in fact, I encourage it.
