Bring on Country Trax!

Country Trax takes us back to school

Country Trax off-road riding academy have generously offered us their prized 3-day riding course this weekend. We cant wait to get down and dirty and up our skill set with their team of riding gurus.

Known as being the go-to-guys for off-road motorcycle training in South Africa, their courses range from beginner to advanced for both adventure and dirt-biking. After only hearing the best things from some of the most respected names in adventure biking, we are crawling out of our skin with excitement!

Give them a go- you will NOT regret it, a good skill set is some of the best riding equipment you can have and it’s hella-fun!
