Enduro Training Lossatal, March 2023

We had been planning to do that for a long time.
And Marcellus has asked around and organized for our group an Enduro individual training with the Enduro Action Team in Lossatal.
On two days, we were able to make our first attempts at enduro riding under the very profound guidance of Christopher "Bob" Bahn - although there was already some experience with Andi, Marcellus and the two Michis.
Enduro Action Team offers a very professional organization including rental motorcycles and other equipment such as boots and has a large and diverse requirements meet training area in the nearby quarry near Meltewitz.

Instructor Christopher "Bob" Bahn
Bob is very experienced and prudent and likes to share his knowledge and skills. He explains the driving technique in great detail before the individual exercises and gives direct feedback during the execution.
In between there is one or the other story.
We have a lot of fun together.
2The journey to the training

We come as always from different directions. Marcellus drives with Andi and the trailer the bikes for the two and for the two Michis, who find their way from Bavaria to Saxony with more bikes.
