Motorcycle companies are aware that they don’t just sell motorcycles and hope you come back for servicing.
These days they have to provide customers with events, social clubs and “experiences”.
Harley-Davidson has historically been the best at this with their HOG chapters and rallies.
Now many other manufacturers are onboard with similar events such as BMW’s long-running GS Safaris.
KTM Australia has been organising adventure and dirt bike riding events in recent years and has announced their calendar for next year.
And it’s not just limited to KTM riders, either,
Since KTM Australia also imports Husqvarna and GASGAS dirt bikes, their Ride Out Moto Weekends are open to adult riders who own a KTM, Husqvarna or GASGAS off-road motorcycle (enduro, MX or cross-country) and to their kids on any brand of kid’s bike.
The weekend events will take place across three states in 2022.
Each event is a two-night, two-day recreational adventure on private property and is designed to be a non-competitive, family-friendly experience.
The first is in Stroud (NSW) on March 25-27, followed by Cooby Dam (Qld) on April 8-10, with the final weekend taking place in Wangaratta (Vic.) on April 29 to May 1.
Each weekend features a custom-cut 20km trailride loop, a grasstrack, an easy hillclimb and a newbies/kids track.
