If you love motorcycles and exploring, we’ve got something special for you today: We’ve teamed up with the crew at the adventure motorcycle training and touring company, RawHyde, for an opportunity to join Gear Patrol writer and resident adventure rider, Matt Neundorf, for a weekend adventure in California. The best part? Meals, accommodations, training and a travel stipend to RawHyde’s Adventure Training Center in California are on us. We’ve also partnered with Rev’It, Nexx Helmets, and Sena Communications to outfit the winner with some killer gear for the weekend and for your future rides. Gratis.

If you’ve been reading Gear Patrol, you’ll know that we’ve done our fair share of adventure riding. But maneuvering a fully kitted bike takes strength, concentration and skill. On every journey we’ve picked up a pointer or two — most involve a mud bath, laughter and some humility — but the risks are still very much there. We can’t think of a better way to learn than a weekend of hands-on training with seasoned riders. To get inspired, check out some of Matt’s own adventures in Baja, Camp Wandawega, and British Columbia here on Gear Patrol. Good luck! See you out on the trails.
