Note: Full terms and conditions are provided at the time of booking and attached to your booking confirmation.
What gear should I wear?
Helmet, gloves, long pants and a long shirt or jacket are required. We highly recommend adventure or dual sport riding gear including off-road boots for optimal protection. Add some knee protection if your riding pants don’t have any built-in. Be prepared to get dirty and maybe a bit wet. Harley-Davidson dealers carry a range of great merchandise.
Should my bike have off-road tires?
The course has been designed to be rideable on tires that come standard with dual-purpose bikes. Dual sport tyres (nobbies) are advantageous, especially in wet conditions, though they are not necessary to attend the course.
What do I need to bring?
For the course you just need your own adventure bike and riding gear. Sunscreen would also be wise. If you’re staying overnight you’ll need to pack accordingly. For those opting to sleep in a provided tent on-site, you’ll also need your own sleeping bag, pillow, and mat. Contact us to confirm availability.
How difficult is the course, do I need to have off-road experience?
No off-road experience is necessary as this course is designed to build your skills and confidence. It suits riders with all levels of experience.
Some customers are anxious about riding off-road but we’re confident you’ll find the atmosphere relaxed and inviting. You’ll be challenged, though it’s definitely not a race or a competition.
With one instructor for roughly every six to eight riders each person will get sufficient attention and coaching to lift their overall riding ability.
Is the course for men and women?
Yes, it’s a combined course and we foster a welcoming environment for all.
Can owners of brands other than Harley-Davidson attend?
At this stage our courses are only for H-D owners. In the near future we do plan to open this up so you and/or your adventure riding friends can join the fun on other brands of motorcycle.
Can I hire a bike?
We do not offer hire or demo bikes at this stage.
Is accommodation included in the course fee?
No, accommodation is the responsibility of each entrant. Check out the nearby options here and make direct contact with your chosen venue. There’s also a link to local activities if you wish to explore the area.
We do have a small number of free tents available if you wish to stay onsite, and this will require you to BYO sleeping equipment (bag, pillow, mat), and be prepared to setup and pack-up tents. These are available on a first-in basis.
Are food and drinks provided at the course?
Yes. Morning tea and lunch are provided. There is coffee, water and snacks available all day. If you have specific dietary requirements please let our staff know prior to the course.
What happens if it rains?
For the safety of riders the course will most likely be cancelled due to rain. This will be a decision made on the day by Stay Upright. Attendees will be advised by email and SMS.
What happens if I arrive late?
If you don’t arrive on time, you will miss the safety briefing and may be delayed in starting the course. We will do our best to accommodate and consider the circumstances.
What happens if I can’t make my course or I need to change my date?
Can I purchase a gift voucher for a course?
Not at this stage, but it’s a great idea we’re considering for the near future.
If I have any other questions who do I contact?
Go to the contact us page.
What do I receive upon completion?
As well as improved riding skills and heightened confidence, you’ll receive a certificate upon completion. Shortly after the course you’ll also get an email with a link to download photos and video.
