TEST RIDES CONTINUE AT SHROPSHIRE BIKE FEST 2012

Suzuki test ride Suzuki’s Test Ride Roadshow continues this weekend, with five events taking place, two at this year’s Shropshire Bike Fest.

The roadshow, starting its fifth weekend, sees almost all of the dealer network hosting their own Test Ride events, and with an additional fleet of test machines supplied by Suzuki GB, it will provide increased test ride opportunities on the day.

Staff from Suzuki headquarters will also be supporting the event with some very special on-the-day only offers.

This weekend’s activities kick off at Single Tracker Motorcycles in Crewe and Geomoto in Finchley on Saturday 23 June, with Joey Sangha from Geomoto commenting, “It’s going to be a special event and a great chance to have a taste of of the exciting Suzuki’s on offer for 2012.

“There will be competitions, raffles, refreshments, and some exclusive sales offers, including 20% off everything, from clothing to oil to parts.”

On Sunday Kings Two Wheel Centre in Kidlington host their event, with two more also taking place at the Shropshire Bike Fest.

Suzuki is in attendance at this year’s event, held at the Meole Brace Park and Ride in Shrewsbury, with dealers David Jones Motorcycles and Wylie and Holland Motorcycles, who will both hold their Test Ride Events from the show.

Cliff Holland, Wylie and Holland Dealer Principal, said ahead of the event, “It’s a good event to get to, most certainly. And hopefully, with the current economic climate too, it will bring people in to have a look at alternatives to cars and look at good commuter machines, and bring them in to start to enjoy bikes.

“The Suzuki range has good commuters like the SV650, the GSR750, and we’re bringing along a VanVan too, so there is going to be a lot to test ride.

“Any event that attracts people to motorcycling is a worthwhile cause, and hopefully the weather stays good for us at weekend.”

David Jones from David Jones Motorcycles added, “It’s going to be a great show and it’s been a terrific effort from Suzuki.

“With it being free entry you’ll definitely want to come along; we’ll have bikes from small capacity learners to the bigger bikes for more experienced riders, and the show, which has been well promoted by organisers, will hopefully do well to promote motorcycles as a viable method of transport.”

The Shropshire Bike Fest boasts free entry, as well as free parking for bikes. There’s also the chance to have a go at some Motogymkhana, and live music throughout the event. For more information visitshropsbikesafety.com.
