Rider Skills: Learning to Ride Ruts on Adventure Motorcycles | Clinton Smout

Ruts can be one of the most difficult challenges for motorcyclists and although ruts are usually found when riding in dirt off-road, you may come across them in construction areas and even at the side of the road where the asphalt often has a lip and a dirt shoulder.

Riding ruts, tips, tricks and even a few stories from Clinton...

And imagine coming across not just one person, but several...
