Honda - Test Ride Weekends. 27-29 October
« on: October 10, 2017, 08:04:47 pm »
Hi Everyone

In co-operation with Honda Tyger Valley and Honda Canal Walk, we will give you guys the opportunity to come and test ride some of our Adventure bikes.
We are still deciding where we will set up camp, but it will be in the Ceres area. If all goes well we will have plenty of camping space available which means you don't have to go home if you don't want to.
We will have a few Africa Twins, CRF Rally's and a few CRF250L's

More info to be posted soon.

Cheers
Hardy

Sounds like a plan, the Kromriver Funduro is on the Sat morning so maybe I could combine the trip  :thumleft:

I need to find out for myself if all the hype about these Honda's is true  ;)

You know.. a certain bike shop had a Africa Twin in Rothmans colours going with a R20k discount.. you have no idea how much I was itching.

My Transalp is pretty much done, its pretty much a brand new bike, so im having separation anxiety with that bike. My arm will be twisted,

Guys we are trying to accommodate as much of you as possible.

Is there any preference to the date. We are thinking of changing the date to the first weekend in November (3-5 November)

The event, venue and routes will be in the Koue Bokkeveld.

We want to confirm the date by Latest Monday so the invite can go out.

There will be rides (mainly test rides) on various Honda models, over terrain that these bikes was designed for. We will cater for all. Novices, those wanting to get onto the AT, and even the sneaky guys like me who will bring a pillion to convince her - this is the bike for us. We need this bike. This bike could be our bike. If that fails - we can each have a bike, cause the AT and 250 goes together like pap & sous.

Whichever way you want to sell it, just come and have fun.

Details on what to expect will follow soon. Camping, braai and a weekend of relaxing with or without your friends and family is some of the things you can look forward to.
