Rugged Mobility in Tough Terrain
Episode 8 follows the Training Cell team as they embark on a two-day course in Sun Valley, Idaho with expert Jimmy King of Tactical Mobility Training. A modern war machine, the Christini AWD 450 has the flexibility and maneuverability that operators need in tough, hostile terrain. The Spec Ops vets learn basic platform functionality—various controls, mechanics, starting and stopping—and work their way up to more advanced techniques like body positions, ascending and descending hills, reactionary drills and more.

“Navigating the unpredictable landscape of Afghanistan can be difficult, but with a platform like the all-wheel-drive Christini, it’s possible for military personnel to go almost anywhere,” said ex-Army Ranger Drew Wallace. “Training with Jimmy gave us the opportunity to put the bike to the test and see first-hand its extreme versatility on the hills of Idaho. We all came to the table with varying levels of motorcycle experience but each left with a new and important skillset. It’s hard not to see the value in a machine that can travel where feet, horses or pack animals can’t—especially in a tactical environment.”

Jimmy King is the owner of Tactical Mobility Training, a company based in Fayetteville, NC. Born from the understanding that wars and battles are often fought in remote locations, Jimmy developed a training regimen to educate and mentor operators who use light mobility platforms on a regular basis. Personnel from SOCOM, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and British Special Forces have trusted Tactical Mobility Training’s staff of former Spec Ops personnel to train and prepare their operators for off-road conflicts for over 17 years.

    How much training and education can you get from this sort of thing when sharing TTP is a absolute no-go?

    I can’t see how this doesn’t turn into some sort of mall-ninja MTV were all you see is the cool kids hanging out trying to look cool.

  2. Dev says:

    Heh I read it as Jimmy, King of Tactical Mobility Training

  3. Drew says:

    The show is very 50,000ft level in respect to TTPs. One of the main goals is to connect folks within industry and serve as a platform to showcase new products and technologies. Thanks for watching.

    My first assignment was to a Scout PLT HHC 3/27th IN BN 7th ID (L), there we were assigned Kawaski’s that were custom built for the Army. We used to train on and off-road constantly, to include maintenance and repair. We even took our bikes to NTC @ Ft. Irwin and Ft. Hunter Liggett many times as well.

    A short term course is great for familiarization, but without constant training and riding, I fail to see the long term value and skills retention capability. Just my $.02 from personal experience.

    So, this may be an out of place question but I think I’ve asked OPs Core before. Maybe folks with tactical motorcycle experience can chime in- For ballistic/non-ballistic fast type helmets, do they meed DOT type standards? I was looking at the Bump helmet for mountain biking or ATV stuff but never knew what safety standards they meet on the civilian side.

    I notice in the pics, looks likes these guys are wearing face shields and standard helmets. Any advice is appreciated.

      Hope they are wearing face shields and everything else. I recall a very bad fatality at JRTC when an OPFOR guy on some flavor of military tactical motorcycle went into a roadblock of steel pickets and concertina, at night. (pre-9-11)

    Looks neat but unfortunately SOFREP is a Brandon Webb thing, and that Blue Falcon can choke on a fat one.

    Brandon Webb. No thanks!!
