Dave Barkshire News
Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter!
Summer and Autumn may be over but it’s given us some great memories! It was good to meet some lovely customers and help with their new motorcycle choices, here’s wishing them a fantastic time on the road. Some of the most popular buys were the KTM 1290 Adventure R, 790 Adventure R and the 125 Duke.
Throughout September, October and November there have been many eager riders undergoing motorcycle training at our dedicated centre, with some fantastic results. Across CBT, Mod 1 and Mod 2 riders emerged triumphant.
Autumn itself got off to a busy start. The Dave Barkshire 2-Man Enduro Championship Round 4 was hosted by Sudbury MCC at Pebmarsh and Round 5 took place at Kenton courtesy of Stowmarket MCC. Back at the Motorcycle Centre our Open Evening complete with BBQ, demo rides and training info, proved a popular event, so thank you to all who came.
As we go into Winter we hope to meet many more of you keen riders, whether it’s to purchase a new machine, some motorcycle gear, or to give your trusted ride a service. Remember we’re dealers for KTM and Mutt Motorcycles, giving you the best in choice. Hope to see you soon.
