TS1.  Beginner.  A day ride on sealed main roads (not including road maintenance).

TS/GS2.  Member.  Day or overnight ride on secondary sealed or formed gravel roads (expect corners, potholes and bumps, dirt).  Carry and know how to use a tyre repair and first aid kit.

TS/GS4.  Adventure.  Multi-day long distance / off road ride for the experienced rider with first aid, some mechanical skills and tools for basic repair beyond tyres.  Typically no same day assistance will be available and at some cost to the rider to transport rider or motorcycle. GS rides need to carry a backup meal & water.
