The team that carried out the training came from Shell Rally Southward, with Chen Zhaopeng as the bishop, the editor of this magazine later, and Xiaodong as the assistant coach. The students will be trained in ADV basic driving in two days.
Instructor doing high-intensity movements
No matter if you are a novice friend or a skilled rider, there will be some psychological obstacles in the first contact with the rally car. Rally cars are generally high in body, heavy in weight, long in shock suspension, and unable to land completely on both feet. Start.
The theoretical instructor was explaining safety knowledge late at night
Through the explanation of the theoretical instructor later, everyone has a general understanding of the rally car before getting on the car. In the non-paved use scene, the tire grip is always changing. Some road driving experience needs to be temporarily abandoned. The joy of ADV lies in uncertainty.
Trainees re-acquainted with rally cars
Safety is the foundation of all activities. Wearing the correct protective gear is the key to ensuring personal safety. When performing rally exercises on non-paved roads, feet and lower legs are the areas with the highest probability of injury. You must wear hard off-road boots , In the case of reversing in place, the pull boots can not effectively protect the feet, this is very important!
ADV practice must be full set of off-road motorcycle protective gear
Reversing in place is the most common
The first part of the basic training is vehicle balance and moped training. How to lift the car quickly and safely and save energy after reversing, and use flexible ways to get on the car. These exercises will play an important role in the actual crossing.
Lift the vehicle in the correct posture
Don’t use waist strength
Unlike street cars and mock races, rally cars pay attention to car control skills. This requires students to practice more on low-speed control cars. This exercise seems boring and actually very useful. This training requires students to As slow as possible, master the balance and complete the forward and turning movements.

When you see those ADV gods in brand advertisements, you will use the technique of power drift. In fact, as long as you master the essentials of movement, most riders can master it. There are three steps:
Power drift into the gantry
Turn off the rear wheel ABS and experience the rear wheel lock and coast in a straight line;
Step on the rear brake while turning with speed, experience and extend the balance as much as possible;
Gradually increase the cornering speed until the body can be tilted significantly, and the rear wheel locks and drifts against steering.
With speed reverse steering dynamic drift
The exercises on the second day started in the drizzle, and the slippery ground increased the difficulty. Under the leadership of the instructor, everyone experienced the stance of standing around the piles, slowly going up and down the slope, and getting rid of difficulties in different situations alone. All will add a security for the future motorcycle brigade.

Low-speed winding pile exercise
This venue condition is a bit difficult
These uphill slopes in the field are designed for small off-road motorcycles, but it will become very difficult for beginners to drive a two-hundred-kilogram rally vehicle to pass these obstacles. Experience and superb skills, through practice, everyone basically understood the principles and mastered the skills to get out of difficulty.
After two days of training, the trainees have a deeper understanding of the driving of hard-core rally cars, no longer tangled with data such as sitting height and weight, and no longer have the previous fear of losing grip on the rear wheels and slipping. Everything is changing in outfitting, which is what makes it different from road riding.
This brother is also one of the students
