The Old-School Paradigm Shift
One group that’s been hit especially hard by the pandemic are students. With much of academia now online, many campuses are ghost towns. However, for those who are college-bound or already in higher learning institutions, and with U.S. tuition fees averaging $35,000+ a year, the question is whether it’s worth coughing up that kind of dough to stare at a computer screen all day.

And, as many have realized, motorcycle travel also promotes interaction with foreign cultures as well as encouraging unique ways of thinking and problem-solving.
Adventure riding isn’t all fair roads and good weather, however. It comes with inherent risks which can test patience, endurance and stamina. Both mental and physical boundaries can be and are often pushed. Wipe-outs and injuries are a reality. These incidents can take on different dimensions when far from home.

DESERT ADVENTURE BIKE TRAINING
The Southwest desert is arguably one of the most uniquely scenic areas of the United States. Its vast majesty, laced with a network of roads of every kind, encompasses six states. These backcountry byways can take us to some amazingly beautiful and desolate destinations. The catch? They are mostly unpaved and many are technical, sandy, rutted, off-camber desert trails with stream crossings and frequently changing slopes. Wind and rain ensure that no two days will see the exact same conditions.
