Major manufacturers and top trainers have joined forces to give 400 people the chance to experience motorcycle off-road riding for just £15...
Members of the Motorcycle Industry Association’s off-road group are repeating and expanding last year’s highly successful Motorcycle Off-Road Experience (MORE) event, with the number of ‘experience’ days increasing from one to four and the number of people who can take part from 100 to 400.
Confirmed so far are Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha who will provide world class trainers, their latest bikes and all safety clothing to give the best possible introduction to off-road riding. This will take place at an established AMCA site in Northampton, with the help of the bodies which regulate off-road sport – AMCA, ACU and BSMA.
The Motorcycle Off-Road Experience is open to anyone, male or female over the age of 16, who is new to off-road riding. A nominal fee of £15 covers riding, tuition and kit for either a morning or afternoon session.
Vist MORE’s dedicated website for event information. Registration goes live on May 16 at 9am.
“People should register as quickly as possible, as places for last year’s event went within a couple of hours”, said Howard Dale, chair of the group which organises MORE. He went on, “there will be a waiting list and everyone who registers with the site will be entered into a draw to win an off-road break in Southern Spain with Trailblazers-Pro.”
The response to last year’s event was phenomenal and can be seen on a video which captures the excitement and enthusiasm experienced by those lucky enough to attend. See www.rideoffroad.co.uk. There is also a Facebook ‘Motorcycle Off-Road Experience’ page, which is another good place to find out what previous attendees thought of their day.
The event is not aimed at current off-road riders, but a fairly large number of people attending last year had ridden road bikes before, though some had never been on a bike of any sort. Others had just done a CBT and 30% of places went to women.
The event will take place over a four day period between Thursday June 13 and Sunday June 16, which includes Father’s Day.
