An adventure bike instructor since 2016, Josh teaches all skill levels from novice, to intermediate, to expert. And has spent much of his time instructing at various ADV events, manufacturer training centers, as well as at some of the most well known facilities in the US. Aside from training, he’s led tours on a variety of BDR’s (BackCountry Discovery Routes), over the Continental Divide, through the Mojave Desert, and down through the Baja Peninsula. He’s been around, to say the least!
When not instructing or guiding, Josh is an avid desert racer, competing in a variety of AMA National Hare Hounds in California, Nevada, Idaho and the Mexico desert racing series. He’s also dove into navigation style off-road rally races such as the Baja and Sonora Rallies, and holds the #1 Plate as the Legacy Racing Dual Sport Expert Champion.
Josh has an affinity for off-road riding and debunking myths that these big ADV bikes are “too heavy” to handle off-road. After having spent 20+ years as a “cruiser rider”, he can relate to new riders making the transition from pavement to adventure riding.
“My goal is not to just make you a better off-road rider… My goal is to make you a better motorcyclist as a whole. The best farkle you can buy for your motorcycle is training.” – Josh Jones
