If you fancy giving off-road riding a go and don’t have the bike or the facilities, then why not head along to the Motorcycle Off-Road Experience being held in Nottinghamshire from the 20th to the 23rd of June.
The event is an initiative set up by members of the off-road sector of the Motorcycle Industry Association, their intention to make it easier for people to give off-road riding a go, with a total of 400 places available.
Bookings go live on the 10th May at 10 a.m., with a ‘women only’ session on Friday morning (20th June).
The event is taking places at AMCA’s track at Bevercotes, with places for either a morning or afternoon session, allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
There is a charge of £25 for each booking, with that including all equipment, training and bikes.
It is advisable that people book as soon as registration opens, as most places for last year went within the first sixty minutes of going live.
News just in: Suzuki will be supporting the event with a fleet of DR-Z125Ls, RM-Z250s and RM-Z450 machines.
Ewan’s bike at Scottish Museum Glasgow
It’s been ten years since Long Way Round burst onto the scene and exploded this crazy adventure bike market.
You can now see Ewan’s bike at the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, where it is being displayed along with essential objects from five contemporary Scottish adventurers, including explorer Mark Beaumont and cyclist Kate Rawles.
As well as the R1150 GS used on the Long Way Round, the R1200 GS Adventure used on the Long Way Down will also be there.
Will the museum need to leave space for the bike from a third adventure? Time will tell.
