MAX BMW Motorcycles is proud to be bringing the BMW Off-Road Performance School to Hunter Mountain Resort July 4-5, 2011. Located in the heart of the Catskills, Hunter is the perfect venue for this program. It features great terrain, a first-class hotel and spa and is easily accessible from everywhere in the northeast.

Riding your own dual sport BMW and using the same basic curriculum developed at the legendary BMW Off-Road training facility in Hechlingen, Germany, the Off-Road school is a two-day program designed to maximize every rider's ability on dirt, gravel or other non-paved surfaces. Professional instructors from the BMW Performance Center will be coming up from South Carolina to teach this event. Each day will consists of approximately six hours of riding time and two hours of classroom instruction.

Riding includes drills on dirt, gravel, water and grass and excursions up and around Hunter Mountain and the surrounding area.

Riding exercises include:

  • Riding position
  • Slalom
  • Circles
  • Figure Eights
  • Sand
  • Stopping on a hill
  • Gravel
  • Recovery from a hill
  • Hill climb and descent
  • Riding ruts, whoops and logs
  • And More!!

Riders also will be able to put their newfound skills to use on a dual sport ride with the instructors. Riders are required to wear FULL protective gear including helmets, gloves, riding jacket, riding pants and boots that protect the ankles. Knobby tires are a must (we have special pricing for tires and labor for students who are paid and signed up for the class.) This course is intended for intermediate and advanced riders only.
