MSF offroad class

Signed up for one in November.

Be nice not to be so offroad-challenged...

Don't have one yet. I've been looking at dual-sport specs for a while.

The class is to help sort out how much "offroad" I'm gonna want to do and narrow down the choices.

It's $150 during the soggy part of the year.

Another PNW survivor, SonicBlue06, may be attending.

dual sport sounds like a good place to start.

forest service roads are fun to explore. the riding style is a bit like street riding but with way less traffic and way less traction.

you can still do a fair amount of trail type riding on a dual sport but expect it to be a bit of a challenge compared to a true dirt bike. if you are totally green to dirt you don't want to be trying anything you couldn't do on a dual sport anyway unless you enjoy pain.
