Founded in 1999, Jimmy Lewis Off-Road was spearheaded when a group of Bay Area riders, early in the adventure riding movement, contacted Jimmy to see if he could teach them the skills to ride the big bikes in the dirt. It was a huge success, and the classes caught on quickly. Since then, we have been teaching all levels of riders on all types of motorcycles. Our drills are fun, easy to understand, instructional, and above all, increase rider safety.

We are based out of our facility in Pahrump, Nevada, and do classes there during the cooler months of the year. Our area contains some of the best desert and mountain riding and offers training experiences galore. We travel and do specialized events all over the country, ranging from ride-in events to classes for clubs or groups. Feel free to contact us if you have something in mind.

Our standard class is focused on the riding skills you need, no matter the type of bike or the current ability level of the rider. Whether adventure touring, dual-purpose, trail, or competition riding, our Series One class will be right for you, and you will learn a lot. We also offer a few specialized clinics and curriculum for government and law enforcement motorcycle and off-road vehicle training.
