Back in June we celebrated 35 years in the business at the Dave Barkshire Motorcycle Centre. Since opening his first shop in Lenwade in 1983, Dave Barkshire has become a big name across Norfolk, and it was brilliant to celebrate this achievement with so many of you. The day was a great success, raising over £500 for the Children’s Acute Transport Service.
In May, we made the decision to open our popular Hit The Dirt Enduro Practice Track on a regular fortnightly basis at weekends throughout the summer months, to make it easier for you all to plan your sessions. We’ll keep you updated via Facebook (www.facebook.com/HitTheDirtUK ) as to which weekend is which, with regular reminders as to when we’re open or closed. If you’ve not tried out the track as yet, then add it to your summer to-do list – we’re sure you’ll have a fantastic time!
In April we showcased the fabulous KTM 790 Scalpel. This is a super agile, super powerful machine with precision handling, and we had good fun announcing the demo, with Dave dressing up for the occasion!
Our Motorcycle Training Centre has been kept busy, with many new riders joining the Dave Barkshire Hall of Fame with Mod 1 and Mod 2 passes! Back in February, however, tests came to a temporary halt when snow arrived, causing a bit of a Norfolk whiteout. Whether you looking at taking your CBT, Mod 1 or 2, DAS or a refresher course, make this your summer goal and give us a call.
Back to the present and we find ourselves in sweltering temperatures. Remember to wear full protective gear, even on the hottest days to keep safe (check out our Motorcycle Centre for your kit) and keep well hydrated when riding to help you stay alert.
We’ve had a fantastic 2018 so far, we look forward to sharing the rest of it with you all!
