The eagerly-awaited all-new H-D® Adventure Centre in Wales is now open and available to book online. Harley-Davidson® UK & Ireland has teamed up with Dakar legend Mick Extance to launch the centre, where intrepid riders can learn how to put the Pan America™1250 Special through its paces.

Iconic motorcycling brand Harley-Davidson® entered the adventure bike market in 2021 with the award-winning Pan America™ 1250 Special, which now has its own base in the stunning terrain of Llangynog, mid Wales.

Riders will receive a full day’s tuition and learn how to master the Adventure Touring machine off road, opening up the full potential of the superb bike in 1,500 acres of stunning forest.

As well as building confidence in their own capabilities, the H-D® Adventure Centre will highlight just what is possible on the Pan America™ and inspire riders to continue their journeys further afield. From novice off-roader to international traveller, the training will help improve a rider whatever their experience level.

With seven Dakar rallies to his name and years of riding experience in the toughest conditions, Mick Extance is Britain’s finest off-road expert.

I’m delighted to be working so closely with Harley-Davidson® and can’t wait to help more riders get to grips with the superb Pan America™ 1250 Special. The H-D® Adventure Centre is the perfect location to experience what this bike can do and set up Harley owners for a lifetime of on and off-road adventures with their Pan America™ motorcycles.”
