Inaugural Adventure Ride a Great Success
It’s a wrap for the first in our series of Chris Watson Motorcycles adventure rally rides and a great day was had by all!
30 riders and our support crew turned up for the event and after Seven hours and 265 kilometres it was all done and dusted.
We rode into the eye of a small storm at one point but managed to get through virtually unscathed and then took the opportunity to chat around the Bar BQ at the half way point.
We had a great mix of bikes including Africa twins, T7 Yamahas, KTMs of all sizes, Husqvarnas as well as a couple of BMWs, a DRZ400 and XR650 (That bloke was quick)!.
After riding a mix of dry and wet conditions as well as some slightly rougher than expected terrain we only had Three non – finishers.
We covered most types of terrain including gravel roads, sand, red clay (dry) trails, black top and some rocky forest roads.
The tried and trusted corner man system took a little while to get used to for some, but in general it worked well, with some riders having the experience for the first time.
All in all everyone had a great day and we look forward to the next one.
Keep your eye on our web site and Face Book page for further details.
Sure beats working!
