Jim Hyde runs Rawhyde Adventures, a unique "Adventure Riding School" based in California, USA. Jim's goal is to help the new adventure rider get the most out of their bike, teaching them how to be comfortable and safe riding off-road. Jim teaches a short course at our Copper Canyon, Mexico Travellers Meeting, and received rave reviews. He will be at Copper Canyon again in 2006, leading a group of riders from California to the Meeting via Baja. Contact Jim here if you're interested in riding to the meeting with him, or in taking one of his courses. And if you mention Horizons Unlimited, you get a US$100 discount on his full 3 day course and a special (for HU'ers only) t-shirt as a bonus.
Truly awesome riding gear - we're converts! Superb ventilation and fit, and absolutely waterproof. Check out the Air Power suits for travelling.
