Bill Dragoo

DART (Dragoo Adventure Rider Training)

Bill Dragoo is the mastermind behind the curriculum creation for D.A.R.T. (Dragoo Adventure Rider Training); a level of training we hold high in our standards of trainer certifications. Many top trainers have trained with him, ridden alongside him, or have gone through his intensive trainer focused program. Often training along with his son, Ben, they not only understand how to teach & relate to students, but the DART program consistently teaches in a way that’s equal parts fun, educational, challenging, and safe. Bill gradually pushes his students through building confidence and skills, so when they tackle the thing they didn’t think possible, it almost feels easy. The DART curriculum is one of the best and we at GRIT stand behind it and any of its certified trainers. Having Bill and Ben as your trainers, you’re definitely in for 2-4 days of challenges, laughs, and skill progression. 

For their classes held here at Grit, you’ll be lucky enough to get the two of them, and we couldn’t be more excited. Check out the dates below, or email info@gritmotoadventures.com with any questions.

Bill’s Background

Bill Dragoo has an impressive and inspiring list of accomplishments through his life. Aside from the adventure bike mastery we know him for, Bill is also a certified flight instructor, has earned commercial pilot ratings in powered aircraft, seaplanes and sailplanes, is an accomplished sky diver and scuba diver, and has won numerous competitions in motocross, cross-country mountain biking, sailboat racing, and adventure riding.  He’s won two Tour de Dirt mountain bike state championships, has completed a double century bicycle ride (200 miles in a single day) and has fulfilled his dream of an unsupported, solo transcontinental bicycle ride across the northern tier of the United States. 

In 2017 Bill was taught a week-long off-road riding course for the Fort Worth Police Department and of course scored 100% on their on-road qualifier after only two hours of instruction. He’s also attended BMW’s Off-Road Instructor training in Hechlingen, Germany, a stringent, week-long course focusing on the art and craft of precision big bike skills. He’s podiumed at the Rawhyde Adventure Rider’s Challenge two of the three times he competed, with first and second place finishes, and represented his country as one of three men competing with Team USA in the 2010 BMW GS Trophy held in South Africa. He’s ridden motorcycles on five continents and has hiked through the Himalayas to Mount Everest Base camp with his lovely wife Susan.

“The best part of any adventure is sharing it,” says Bill, and he does just that through his stories and proper training.

All Trainers

Ben Dragoo has been training alongside his dad, Bill, for the past couple years at D.A.R.T (Dragoo Adventure Rider Training). There are few that could possibly know the curriculum better. He brings with him a level of knowledge, skill, and kindness that’s hard to replicate. You can catch him here at Grit, or training at one of the many expos or tours across the Nation.

Ben Dragoo

Bill Dragoo is the one who created and continues to perfect the curriculum for D.A.R.T (Dragoo Adventure Rider Training). And his son, Ben, has been training along side him for the past several years. These two have the knowledge, patience, technique, and skill to make sure each and every student leaves a better rider.

Chris IS Grit. When curiosity of roadbook navigation hit him, he not only started experimenting with some homemade Tupperware roadbooks, but dove into competing in rallies across the globe. Between he and Phil, the Navigation course they teach is interesting, entertaining, and just a blast.

Chris Braun

Josh is one of those trainers who does it all. Teaching since 2016 for some of the most well known programs, guiding tours to places most of us dream about, and diving deep into the desert racing and rally world whenever his schedule allows. He’s an impressive rider and an even better teacher. Looking for skill, patience, and clear breakdowns of why we ride the way we do? This is your guy.
