Delivering New Riders


Since the start of the year, we have trained and delivered new riders through our Training School and we are very proud to have supported these motorcyclists of the future.

Those of us from a certain era were born to ride, but these days there is a reduction in the take up of two wheels, so we are doing our bit to make sure they enjoy motorcycles as much as us, but with much better training than we had.

Our off-road track near Swaffham, Hit the Dirt has also been an invaluable training ground for both enduro racers and beginners alike, with another new year of riding development despite being closed a couple of times due to the recent weather. 

Some recent photos of our new Training School riders and new bike owners at the Rackheath showroom (above).

We look forward to welcoming you to the Showroom, the Training School or Hit the Dirt. To find out more on these or other products speak to Dave Barkshire on: 01603 722800 or e-mail us at: info@davebarkshire.com

New Challenge for Us

The beginning of 2023 saw new customers take delivery of their bikes along with our loyal customers treating themselves to new motocross, enduro and road bikes. The summer warmth really encouraged the road riding and many of our bikes have been across Europe and beyond, exploring the Alps, South America and numerous foreign roads. As we see every year, riders move back towards the dirt in autumn when there is mud and puddles on the trails.

This year we have trained and delivered an unprecedented number of new riders through our Training School and we are very proud to have supported these motorcyclists of the future. Those of us from a certain era were born to ride, but these days there is a reduction in the take up of two wheels, so we must do our bit to make sure they enjoy motorcycles as much as us, but with much better training than we had.

Our off-road track near Swaffham, Hit the Dirt has again been the invaluable training ground for both enduro racers and beginners alike, with another great year of riding development despite being closed a couple of times due to the recent heavy rainfall.


Our Rackheath showroom continues to offer new road and off-road models from Rieju, Fantic and commuter bikes from Kymco. After 24 years as a KTM dealer we can confirm the rumour that this chapter is now drawing to a close. It has been a privilege to be a founding dealer for KTM in the UK and see the brand grow globally, however it’s now time for a change and a new challenge for us. On this note, we are pleased to confirm that we are now also the Sherco dealer in our region so please come and talk to us about your next new motocross, enduro or trials bike.

Our workshop at Rackheath is here for your servicing, MOT, tyres and suspension upgrades. Did you know that we are K-tech specialists and can transform your ride whether off-road, road or race bike?

Follow the link or come and talk to us to explore this popular enhancement.

Wishing you all best wishes for the New Year, when we look forward to welcoming you at the Showroom, the Training School or Hit the Dirt.
