July, 2019 (HISEGA Lodge Adventure Tour)

The perfect marriage between ADV Bootcamp coaching, sightseeing, and top-notch lodging. What’s not to love, if we have negative ratings… well ADV is not for that person!

This training was great, not only the technical skills but the attitude and approach to adventure riding.

June 2019 Oklahoma Class

The instructors truly understand that everyone might learn differently and are incredibly patient with the riders.

Bill and his team were the difference makers in this class. They were insightful, encouraging and positive. Made learning fun while planting the seeds for further growth in the sport for each of the riders.

The class was truly excellent. The instructors were patient and accommodating of different learning styles/skill levels, the simulations were realistic, and everything we practiced translated directly into the skills we needed to get through the trail ride at the end.

The attitude of the class was established immediately and set me at ease. Instructions were clear and went immediately into demo then execution. The schedule flowed well and wasted no time and truly was progressive, improving on what was previously taught while expanding my knowledge at the same time.

I received a compliment last night on my “making the bike this big seem light and nimble” in a parking lot. Clutch control and balance taught by Dragoo Adventures is what I told the guy. He rides a Harley. Thank you again Bill and Susan and class for the great experience.

Bill, you have the ability to impart your expertise in a way that is both instructional and caring, like everybody’s favorite grade school teacher. You actually made me want to try even harder at the difficult tasks. . . . With long hours to think on the way (home) I concluded that I had accomplished most of the goals I stated at the orientation. I gained some important riding skills and improved my confidence when the pavement ends. I also learned some new tricks, which is not bad for an old dog.

The techniques and confidence I learned were priceless.

Would have taken years to gain this knowledge on my own. 

The instructors were very supportive and attentive to your questions. I came away with much more confidence on my bike than I expected.

The practices that we performed gave me enough confidence for my Himalayan trip. Instructors were very knowledgeable. They took time to check how each of us are performing and provided valuable feedback.

I really feel I learned how to turn the big ADV bike better, especially standing up. That was my kryptonite so to speak and now I feel very comfortable doing low speed tight turns and higher speed turns.

Staff was personable, friendly and made sure they were available to all the students for every aspect covered. 

August 2018 Texas Class

Exactly the class I needed! 

The training is simply superb. 

(Liked) Specific PROGRESSION of exercises and encouragement. Emphasis on specific techniques and connection to outcome. I am a street rider and will be practicing this to change default value habits.

(Liked) Overall instruction and speed of each module. Worked very well with increasing complexity with each skill.

Attention to detail and focus on rider safety.

It is a wonderful clinic, learned lots of skills. Each exercise boosted lots of confidence in me. 

March 2018 Oklahoma Class

Well thought-out (e.g. progression of drills, value of drills). Great communications. Great support staff. 

Bill and the team are outstanding.

Great hospitality, knowledgeable and experienced instructor and assistants. Overall great learning environment.

All instructors were simply phenomenal. SO MUCH SUPPORT. I also enjoyed your friends and volunteers stopping in — they, too, provided so much support and camaraderie in spirit and word.

(Liked) Real-world nature of drills, progression of drills, quality of communication/instructions, quality of support team, Bill’s knowledge, opportunity to interact with team, and Bill & Susan. 

October 2017 Oklahoma Class

Amazing clear instruction. I feel much more confident on my bike!! 

Challenging, instructors did a great job of pushing but not forcing student to go beyond their ability.

Good info.

(Liked) learning the correct way to control my motorcycle with the clutch, brake, and position. I feel much more confidant and comfortable on the bike.

It was great! Curriculum was perfect for me and flowed well. The assistant coaches and scouts were very helpful! Top notch crew!!

(Liked) Everything. It was the best clinic I have been to.

October 2017 Missouri Class

Friendly and approachable, right level of challenge… never felt like I was in danger but definitely pushed further with each exercise, learned a TON and I feel 1000% more comfortable on my bike now

September 2017 Custom Class

Everything I went in wanting to learn, Bill covered it in his curriculum. Being able to ask questions and talk at lunch cleared up a lot of question marks for me as well.

July 2017 Custom Class

The only way I can think of giving “better” value would be to give everyone a souvenir sack of $100 bills. Seriously though, I looked all over the country for something that would give me what I was looking for at a cost I could afford. You guys are head and shoulders ahead of your competition in this area.

Bill is one of the best teachers I have come across. Not just in comparison to other motorcycle skills teachers, but ALL teachers. He is patient. His explanations and encouragement were always right on. The other folks on the team are of similar quality. I don’t know how many times I heard words of encouragement from Zeke, Dave, Tobin, Todd, Josh and the rest.

Friendly, professional staff that encouraged me to push my limits. Instruction was excellent with a great selection of exercises.

I learned a ton of skills to help me in the future, I would have hurt myself if I tried many of the things on day 2 without the control exercises and coaching. Having multiple coaches was great. Photos are fantastic!

Pace. Location. Instruction. Support. The real winner though is the PEOPLE. The whole team is totally AWESOME!

June 2017 Oklahoma Class

It was very apparent that tons of time and energy had gone into the development of this clinic. I never felt confused or found myself questioning why we were working on the skills presented or their pertinence to real world application. I very much appreciated the seamlessness with which Bill, Josh, etc worked together. Their obvious respect and companionship was something that I think helped the rest of us feel a little bit more comfortable in some truly uncomfortable/scary situations.

April 2017 Washington Class

Not only are the exercises built on a progression to each other, but the explanations to the overall skills can be understood but also relatable.

Fun! Clear instruction! Built on skills! I improved a lot! I have more finesse and control of my bike.

Bill does a great job explaining the skills and why they are important. The building blocks are super important and well executed. Josh is awesome. He is very easy to be around and a great person to have on the team. He went above and beyond in helping with anything that was needed. I was very impressed with the commitment that Daniel had. As a volunteer, I think he was just as committed to his job as anyone else. He really did his best to be there for people.

11 out of 10! I came here with a goal in mind to explore my personal and bike’s performance envelopes and now have a better understanding, giving me a ton more confidence to ride more difficult terrain.

No matter the level of expertise, everyone was challenged appropriately.

Starting off Sunday at your home was perfect! It brought everyone together early with a sense of we are a team here, we are going to learn a lot, we will have fun. Your coaches obviously work with you not for you, and they were excellent. I know you have full faith in them as did I. I did not feel the need to search you out with any questions or concerns I had as Zeke, Josh and Tobin always there. You should be proud! Having your friends and neighbors at the meet and greet was nice too! It felt like all of us were there to talk motorcycles, gear, share some stories and start building some friendships.

It’s abundantly clear that you, Bill and your staff want the best training for each rider. There’s a true enthusiasm by everyone there to teach the techniques. I went from rote performance of the described events to the “light bulb” moments of fully understanding why I’m doing something. Key example, the bike “under tension” I was simply doing it as instructed, but when I needed to tighten up a turn to make sure I could turn inside of where Susan was, it simply clicked and I was able to turn well inside of where she was standing. I continued using the technique during the rest of the course, which again proved very useful during slow, technical sections of the trail ride. Also, when I had questions, it didn’t matter who I asked. Every person in your staff had very good advice. I may have been one of the stronger students in the group and I expected less attention times, yet it always seemed like I had at least one set of eyes on me. Bill, to me, it’s clear that you are a great instructor, understanding the different skill levels and learning behaviors of people. You’ve done an equally special job having Josh and Tobin understand these same concepts.
