I just attended the Intro to Adventure Course and, subsequently, the Base Camp Alpha tour with RawHyde Adventures (RawHyde Adventures | Official BMW Off-Road Motorcycle Training Facility). The outfit is an official training center for BMW but Harley Davidson actually partnered with them to test the original Pan America pre-prod bike. I had the option to either rent a R1200 GS/GSA from them or bring my 22'PAS. I HAD a 2016 R1200 GS that I actually traded in for my PAS so I wanted nothing to do with the GS. There were 2 PAS there in a class of 16 and then a tour of 11. The PAS didn't skip a beat. They took on the hardest challenges and kept up with the GS'. There are a couple of slightly annoying things on the PAS that I think may be attributed more to me not knowing how to set up the bike rather than the bike, like, I had to manually turn off the ABS every time I turned the bike off. It apparently doesn't do it automatically when it is on off-road+ mode. Overall, I would highly recommend the classes for any of you that got an adventure bike but do not have experience handling a 530+lbs bike on a non-paved road.
