Folks, let's be honest; motorcycles are toys and if you're going to buy a new toy you want a chance
with it before purchasing it - right? To that point, if you're in the market for a new adventure
quickly find that it is impossible to really get a legitimate test ride on any of the bikes you may
evaluating. Most power sports offer very limited street only demo rides and NO dealers will allow
demo rides. RawHyde has a solution to this.
Our adventure demo experience is geared toward riders who are interested in evaluating most of the
range of adventure motorcycles in the environments that they were designed for. Whether you just
want to check
them out or you're considering the purchase of an Adventure Motorcycle; our one and two day
fun and educational as well as a great value. What's more, if you’re in the market for an
bike and you buy one as a result of your time with us, you’ll get a rebate of the money you
your demo experience.
The One-Day Demo Experience
Our one-day program provides some real adventure; an honest adventure experience and also an
to test ride as many as three current adventure bikes in the environments that they were meant
for. The rides
consist of 90 minute"combination rides" at RawHyde's training school in Southern California.
To further explain what a combination ride is:
Phase 1 of each test ride will be a one hour asphalt ride on local twisty roads
that will give
you a great feel for the on-road capabilities of the bikes on pavement. Your one hour ride will
specific exercises to allow you to thoroughly evaluate the machine. You'll have braking exercises,
and maneuvering exercises, and a 30 mile road ride.
Phase 2 of your demo experience will be a half hour loop ride on the roads and
trails of RawHyde's
off-road training school course. You'll have a chance to try your hand at steep hills, off-camber
sand and more.
There's a lot more to your demo experience than just three demo rides though – here's the rest of
There will be a solid educational component to your time with us. You'll be given a 30 minute
lecture on top mistakes
