Introduction to offroad riding

Hello GTAM'ers. My name is Jarrod. I'm sorta new to on road, sport riding, with my recent purchase of a Ducati Monster. I am however a veteran rider offroad. I'm offering to take new riders, interested in trail riding, out for a day, and giving them an intro to trail riding. Nothing heavy, just the basics of how to read the trail, rider positioning, things like that. If particular riders are into it, we can get more in depth. I'm by no means a pro, I've just been riding for many years, and been lucky enough to learn from some excellent, and on occasion, pro riders. I would classify myself as an expert level trail rider.

Anyone interested, please PM me, or post up here. All I ask is you have a good running, street legal dualsport bike, and be willing to come to Acton (good trails to learn on). Anyone not using a street legal bike, we could trailer to creemore if interested. Going to keep this to 1 or 2 people at a time. Easier for me, and better for those who are very new to trails.

There is no cost. Other than your own gas and food and such. I like meeting new people, teaching, and trail riding. It's all a win win for me! Cheers all!

Check out some vids I put up on YouTube. Nothing crazy, just to get an idea of the riding I'm talking about. There are a couple crash vids. Things that happen when you get complacent! One of me, and one of a guy I was showing the ropes to.

I would be up for it one weekend. I am not a total newb, but getting back it after a long hiatus.

But I would definitely have to trailer it to Creemore. My bike is blue plated, but my tires are not ... LOL .... I mean they are DOT, but really good only for off-road and will get chewed up on road real quick, especially on 2hr or so ride from Brampton ...

Sounds like fun, thinking weekends or weekdays?

I ride on weekends mostly. The places I ride in Acton, are private spots, that I've sought out permission.

We could go out sometime in the evening during the week if you'd like. If you live fairly close to Acton, I could meet you in town at the Tim's, and we could go from there.

Threadamortus? :eek:

On a constructive note... has anyone ridden the Creemore area this year (Orchard Hill, Back of Mansfield hill, concession road allowances, etc... that are usually part of ODSC's Creemore ride) to be able to share the conditions? These are really the only 'somewhat legal' trails available (since most of these are just unmaintained road allowances) while all the real riding areas are closed due to lock down... :mad::poop:

It's all good, some muddy bits.
