RawHyde Adventures is expanding its operations in the United States with the acquisition of new properties and a growing fleet of BMW Motorcycles. The Official Off-Road Motorcycle Training Center of BMW Motorrad, RawHyde trains thousands of motorcyclists each year at its facilities in California and Colorado.
In 2017 RawHyde acquired land to expand its Colorado property to a total of 80 acres. The new land is now home to the country’s first terrain park for adventure motorcyclists. RawHyde training courses have always been performed on RawHyde land, but the new addition allows for entire classes to work on riding drills simultaneously, drastically reducing downtime and maximizing riding time.
In addition to expanding their Colorado facility, RawHyde has acquired a new piece of property in California City, CA, and is in the early stages of developing a new location for training courses and events. Whereas the original RawHyde training center just north of Los Angeles offers riders hilly terrain typical of Southern California chaparral, the new California City facility will offer easy access to the nearby desert terrain.
“Motorcycling is about freedom and exploration, and riding on paved roads is really just scratching the surface of what’s possible on these machines. Our mission is to train riders and empower them to venture off the beaten path,” said RawHyde Founder and Director, Jim Hyde. “The best way for us to serve the adventure riding community is to invest back into our business to continually improve the services that we are able to provide. Our courses and our tours are all about experience, and we are determined to build the best possible experience for riders of all motorcycles and ability levels.”
This year, RawHyde has expanded its motorcycle fleet with 50 brand new BMW GS models, enabling riders to use RawHyde bikes for training courses or get familiar with one of the models on off-road terrain. These training courses are performed entirely on RawHyde land at their California and Colorado training centers. Participants are provided with onsite accommodations and meals prepared by trained chefs, allowing riders to focus entirely on the training that they are undergoing.
