A friend and I have booked a three day off-road 'Escape Tour' for June. We've both been riding on the road for a few years but neither of us has any dirt experience at all. We're considering doing one of Stay Upright's 'Dirt Days' in May. Apparently this course is 'the basic off-road skills course'. Has anyone done this course and if so, did you find it beneficial? What sort of things does it cover? And last but not least, for those of you who are already off-road maniacs, could we get away with 'learning on the job' so to speak and skipping the training day?
