PSSOR Adventure Camp

Has anyone been to the PSSOR adventure Camp. It seems like a pretty fair deal for 4 days of learning/camping. Their website has alot of pictures of V-Stroms. Just curious if people had good or bad experiences to report.

I think CBRXXXESS's wife went to that training or a similar one put on by the same outfit (maybe a ladies-only session?). She said it was a great help before her ride on a strom in the Dominican Republic with motocaribe.com.

Hi Jeff
I just signed up for the June 14-17 session. My fathers day present....fathers day away from the wife and kids on my Vstrom playing in the mud. Let me know if you sign up and we can meet up for the ride down there.

We have RawHyde Adventures down south and those sessions look like fun. Pricey bit of fun though.
I get the emails but haven't bitten the bullet yet.
I think the added expense of decent road/dirt knobbies would be be a consideration too.

PSSOR looks to be more dirt bike style. Rawhyde is more adventure bike riding, and they seem to be more into BMW's than anything. I haven't seen a V in any of the videos about their classes.

PSSOR: Afterwards?

I'm thinking of taking the PSSOR course in 2014. Are there any reports from those that took it in 2013?

I attended the ADV Camp in May. It is big bike oriented, lots of GS's there and a GSA. No Vstroms in my class though, which was surprising. PSSOR is a good bunch. They know their stuff and have the curriculum down. I learned a lot, and felt confident in my abilities afterward. They didn't just teach riding, they had plenty of useful other seminars, such as camp cooking and bike recovery. It really was a complete package. I plan on taking more of their dirt bike classes to refine my skills.

I ended up taking a class and thought it was excellent. There was one other Vstrom other than me in my session. I feel like I am a much better rider now. I am much more comfortable riding off road an even on gravel roads. Just the hints for slow speed maneuvering has proved to be extremely helpful. Food was excellent and the camaraderie made for a money well spent weekend. I highly recommend it especially for newer off road riders. I would have never thought that I could ride over a 12" log or in deep sand or on a 2x10 ramp with a 12" jump off the end. Be prepared to drop your bike a few times but you find the limits for sure.
