What to expect in Samui Enduro Adventures?

You not only get to enjoy the experience of a lifetime but also bask in the natural beauty of Thailand. This is a great way to see the real wild side of this country with breathtaking scenery, while enjoying spectacular views. Trained staff is present to provide and assist you with anything required to go on an enduro adventure. You can opt for dirt bikes, ATV adventures, tours & safaris through jungles and mountains, and so on.
Understand the Commitment
While dirt bikes sound cool and fun, they aren’t for the faint-hearted! A lot of people are under the misconception that riding dirt bikes is like any other sport or hobby, but it is assuredly not so. Dirt bikes will be provided to you on rent, but you need to know exactly how to ride them, or else it won’t be of any use. If you are unable to maneuver through rugged terrains and rough roads, it is best to steer clear. You will be provided with riding gear such as helmet, riding boots, gloves and goggles. You can wear jeans and a heavy jacket your first few times out. But once you decide riding dirt bikes is now part of your life, grab a jersey and pants. The appropriate riding gear is cooler, fits better and allows for additional protection like knee braces.
Create a Lifetime Passion
As mentioned, dirt bike riding isn’t easy. It is hard and not just the actual riding and staying upright but figuring out the brake, gas, and clutch can be a bit overwhelming. Riding with friends gives you a great opportunity to correct mistakes and offer advice and suggestions on how to ride better and figure out the controls.

A few tips for Koh Samui enduro tour beginners
• Don’t sit too far back on the bike or you might pop a wheelie accidentally. Sit forward on the bike.
• Squeeze the bike with your knees. You will get arm pump if you use your arms for all turning and control. By squeezing with your knees, you can use your leg power to tilt and turn the bike.
• All your weight shouldn’t be on your butt. Put weight on the footpegs and slightly sit up with a straight back.
• Put out your elbows away from the body and high up in the air. This will give you much more power to make quick turns and control the bike if you start to lose traction.
