    Default Advanced driving

    Hi guys. And girls.
    I would like to read up on advanced driving, specifically on sand and gravel road. I would prefer to do a course, but with me not staying near a metropole that is difficult. Does anyone have lieterature or a website that I could use to spruse up my bike handling?

    Blink, you'd actually be surprised to learn that us Metros come out to you neck of the woods for the weekend to learn how to ride on "sand and gravel".

    You could also make a day trip out of the driving/riding day ;)

    Search youtube for "Ride in sand tutorial"
    There are loads of good ones and if you can take away a little from each one then you'll be winning

    What Az said, but be careful. Some online tips are posted by people who know what they're doing. Many others are opinions. There's a big difference between experience and expertise.
    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.
