AdvMotoPros

Progression –  Refine your skills and become a better rider, on road or off.

Play –  Motorcycles are fun! We celebrate our falls (no one is immune) and learn from them!

Heart–  We’re all in this together, and adventure creates community. Riding groups are teams, helping each other succeed when things become difficult.  

The Values of AdvMotoPros pretty much say it all. After being in the industry as a trainer and tour guide for the past ten years, Rob Day has collected some of his most trusted & talented colleagues to create a traveling collective of certified trainers. And these guys have talent, fun, AND heart. And we’re lucky to have them include Grit as one of their stops!

In his 7 years as a Senior Coach and Tour Lead at a prestigious private company, Rob has trained hundreds of riders and led a diverse set of tours. Among his favorites are the Continental Divide, Death Valley, and of course Baja. No matter where the tour may be headed, he takes great pride in making sure clients are enjoying themselves, pushing themselves, and always arriving safely to their destination.

Rob is also a Harley-Davidson Pan America product specialist, and has been involved with this project since before the bike was available to the public. He was a Lead Coach at the Pan America Experience in 2021 in the Mojave Desert, and his team managed the success of the Pan America press launch. They also trained Harley-Davidson corporate and dealership personnel how to ride these machines off road throughout 2021.

So if anyone knows the Pan America, it’s Rob Day. He continues this work as an independent contractor for Harley-Davidson, traveling to events around the country including the Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival, and the 120th Anniversary Homecoming Celebration in Milwaukee. He also travels to different regions providing training for dealerships within local adventure communities. As of early 2024, no single person has trained more riders on the Pan America than Rob has.

No matter what you ride, Rob thrives on make training fun, and has a knack for getting even the most anxious students to relax and enjoy themselves. For his classes held here at Grit, check out the dates below or email info@gritmotoadventures.com with any questions!

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.

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.
