Please use this form when applying for consideration for the Military Scholarship offered by WMF for Dirty for Good.


The Dirty for Good training is designed for motorcycle licensed beginner dirt riders who have good clutch and throttle control -OR- novice to intermediate dual sport riders who want to add to and refine their skills. The training will be broken up into these two groups.


Please understand and verify that you meet the requirements to be successful with the Dual Sport Motorcycle Training. Dirty for Good training will involve 6 to 8 hours per day of riding. Much of the riding involves standing up on the motorcycle's footpegs while using body positioning for turns, surmounting obstacles, water crossings, uphill and downhill terrain as well as mud, sand, gravel, and rocks. Dual Sport riding requires stamina, good health, physical fitness, balance, agility, mental alertness and the ability to focus on and follow instructions.


You can ONLY be successful if you meet these requirements, have a motorcycle endorsement on your driver's license and are willing to learn. We share these realities not to intimidate you or scare you away from this training, but to ensure that you understand what it takes to have a successful and enjoyable experience.
