Training for Travel


It's time to regain your riding legs - maybe you've been brushing up on your skills, or maybe it's long past time you did? Got a new Adventure bike, and finding it a little intimidating? Your first experience on gravel or dirt was terrifying, or disastrous?

Get an extra confidence boost by taking off-road and slow speed skills training at the HU Virginia event!

Rider training at HU Virginia

Sign up for 1- day of off-road training with Tom Asher at a special low price of $150! Training takes place on Friday and Saturday of the event. Openings are limited to maintain a good student-to-instructor ratio. This ensures a better training experience for all! Registration closes when we're full.

Remember: You MUST be registered for HU Virginia in order to take this training!

PRE-Registration is strongly recommended. There MAY be spaces available on the day, there may not!

The class will run if there are at least 7 students.

Note:

The focus for all training is on Slow-Speed maneuvers. Key fundamentals for newer off-road riders and excellent tips for more experienced riders, especially those coming from an all street background. Slow speed maneuvers are THE KEY to successful off-road riding.

"Expanding limits is what we do.
Learn what limits we've been expanding lately, come join us and expand yours!"

TAARA, Tom Asher Adventure Rider Academy, is an adventure motorcycle riding school that teaches real-world techniques that can be applied to real-world adventures.

A member of Team USA in the 2016 GS Trophy, Tom Asher has over 15 years' experience developing skills designed specifically for large adventure bikes in off-road conditions, and also has extensive experience in off-road motorcycle racing. The expertise he has acquired has earned him a reputation for being able to take a motorcycle anywhere on any terrain, which he recently demonstrated as the first rider to enter an extreme hard enduro on a BMW R1200GSA at the 2016 Tennessee KnockOut. Tom has over 15 years' experience training individuals and groups, and is a professional mechanic.

Our mission at TAARA is to equip the adventure rider with the skills necessary to successfully complete their journey, whether near home or on an epic adventure. ​ Our individual and group classes teach techniques that help riders use body position, clutch, throttle, and brakes to tackle surfaces and obstacles including gravel, rocks, sand, switchbacks, water crossings, mud, logs, and ascents/descents. These techniques are designed to conserve rider energy and keep the motorcycle intact, increasing the rider's confidence in safely navigating a variety of real-world conditions.​ By training with TAARA, you can accomplish great things riding off-road, more than you ever thought possible!

Training takes place at HU Virginia from 08:00 – 17:00, with a break for lunch.

Friday and Saturday: Slow-speed maneuvers. Key fundamentals for newer off-road riders and excellent tips for more experienced riders, and prepares all riders for the more advanced skills in a Level 2 course you might take at TAARA.

  • Adventure bike set up and ergonomics
  • Standing: How, why, when and where
  • Throttle and brake control on dirt and gravel
  • Emergency braking
  • Steering by weight transfer
  • Slow speed maneuvers, the base of EVERYTHING going forward.
  • The afternoon is spent on the trail, putting what you learned in the morning into practice!

Class size is very limited to provide a high level of attention to each rider. This ensures a better training experience for all!

Registration closes when we're full. For changes, please reply to your confirmation email. These classes do sell out quickly, so please reserve your spot early.

All classes: MANDATORY RIDING GEAR IS REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION. Assume good protective gear, and the bike must be road-legal and insured. Questions, please reply to your confirmation email or in the comments box below.

Tires - what do I need?

We always recommend good dual purpose tires for the best results and safest experience.

Tom Asher, your trainer, says: "Any tire is going to be fine. Keep in mind if it's wet it may be a little more difficult with a street oriented tire. But we will get everyone through just fine."

Sign up NOW - LAST year we SOLD OUT very early!

Join the Volunteer Crew


From welcoming travellers at the gate, to taking care of the campsite and making sure all the presentations run smoothly, the success of every HU event relies on the enthusiasm of its volunteer crew. Volunteering only involves a few hours of your time. It's a great way to make new friends, get more involved with Horizons Unlimited and have loads of fun!

If you have a current first-aid qualification, or if you're a practising Doctor, Nurse or Paramedic, would you mind being on call for two or three 4-hour shifts to deal with any (minor) medical emergencies? Please join the Volunteers crew.

We send out an event Presenters schedule approximately two weeks before the event to the volunteers along with a Volunteer schedule. You see the schedule before everyone else does! You can then feed back any changes you need so you get to the seminars you want to see - we don't want you to miss anything!


T-shirts


Sorry, t-shirt ordering is now closed as we have placed the order with the manufacturer. A FEW Extra T-shirts will be available from the HU Store at the event. Next year be sure to register in advance to get YOUR choice!


Customise your Event Pass


Let people know what you ride, where you've been, and where you WANT to go! A GREAT conversation starter on your name badge!

What is the make and model of your motorcycle, bicycle or expedition vehicle? *

What areas have you visited so far in your travels?*

Name one part of the world you would most like to explore? *

This is a conversation-starter. Usually where you want to go, or can be technical expertise, whatever you like.


Read and accept our Terms and Conditions
