Adventure riding

It depends on just how adventurous you want to be but either way some off road training might be a good idea if you have not been off-road before. As for the bikes, I believe that the best ones are orange and have KTM written on the tank.

Try for training.

Some manufacturers do off-road training days too (look up Yamaha Offroad Experience for an example). BMW and Honda spring to mind as well, be aware however, some stipulate that you should be familiar on a geared bike, so do check.

If you do a training day (organised), then hopefully you'll be less likely to annoy locals or land up on private property (there's been a few horror stories of residents / landowners laying booby-traps for straying riders).
