Autumn News

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn!

 
Summer 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 August and into September 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 has 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 through autumn 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.

Prepare For An Adventure

 


We’re a quarter of the way through the year already and it’s all systems go at our Hit The Dirt Track, Motorcycle Training Facility and Motorcycle Centre.
 
We’ve recently introduced a new track layout at our popular enduro practice track at Swaffham, offering a new challenge for all you keen riders. There were a few setbacks in March when Storm Gareth took its toll, resulting in a big pump out operation, and the kids’ track closed for the forestry commission survey, but we’re hoping for lots of great weekends ahead. Fancy winning a year’s free riding at Hit The Dirt? Then just like and share our Dave Barkshire Motorcycles Facebook page and find and follow us on Instagram to be entered in our prize draw! You have until 24th May to enter, so what are you waiting for?
 
The new KTM Adventure R has hit the showrooms, with Dave braving the snowy wilds of Wales to attend the dealers’ launch. Back at our Motorcycle Centre, he was thrilled to hand over one of these prized machines to a happy customer who rode it back up to Scotland, with a trip to Spain next on the agenda. What a great bike this is, powerful and agile, yet offering a super smooth ride.
 
 
If it’s motorcycle accessories you’re after, then the Dave Barkshire Motorcycle Centre is still the place to home! Fancy a bit of retro as you ride? Then the new Simpson Bandit motorcycle helmet is worth a look. Pop in to our Rackheath showroom to see all that we have to offer.
 
 
Father and son, David and Joe enjoy success at our training facility
 
 
 
Our Motorcycle Training Centre has been busy and we love to hear feedback from some of our happy riders. Ollie enthused, “Brilliant training and genuinely very fun to learn with Pete. I feel like I learnt a lot more here than with any other riding school I've used in the past. Great bikes and great times! Thanks Pete.” Whilst Luke commented, “Brilliant service and training to complete my CBT, Mod 1 and Mod 2 test. An enjoyable experience!!” 
 
 
 
 
Thanks guys. Look forward to meeting a lot more budding riders during the rest of the year.

It's Back!

It's spring and 'tis the season to enjoy Enduro. The Dave Barkshire 2-Man Enduro Championship 2019 began last month, with round 2 set for 14th April.

 

For those of you who've not watched the championship in recent years, it makes for a gripping event, with two man teams competing in Championship, Expert and Clubman classes around East Anglia.

 

On 3rd March, round one took place at Iken, Suffolk, with a three mile course around fields and woodland, organised by Woodbridge MCC. The Luke Parker/Ben Cole combo were victorious in the Championship Class, Tommy Clark/Dan Smith top in Expert Class and Ben Roper/Kieran Hibble triumphant in Clubman Class.

 

So make a date in your diaries for 14th April when Sudbury MCC will be hosting round two at Halstead Hills. In the meantime, why not enjoy the thrill of enduro first hand by visiting our Hit The Dirt practice track. Need to get kitted out first? Then the Dave Barkshire Motorcycle Centre is the place to come!
