VSM September Ride

Register Here

The event is the ADV Rider Magazine Northern annual Congregation and we have been invited to be part of it. As the event coincides with our 40th anniversary (VSM opened the doors for the first time on 17th September 1977) and 2017 is the 21st year of the DR650SE model in Australia we would like to make to most of the opportunity to promote during this period.

The event is for Saturday mainly and finishing Sunday. Most riders arrive Friday evening or Saturday morning.
I have started discussions on social media about the challenge of getting 100 DR/DRZ (200, 250, 350,400, 500, 600, 650, 750 & 800 size) riders to the event. We have authorised advertisements in ADV Rider Magazine.

VSM will have a sausage sizzle going Friday afternoon the 15th for early arrivals and I think we will be handing out the route instructions for Saturday for those that are there.

This Sunday I am trying to finalise a route for the DR/DRZ ride for Saturday morning (3 to 4 hour ride) should also have a shorter harder course for the extreme riders about 1 to 2 hour.
I am thinking I will do a “on the ride” maintenance talk and perhaps a trail side tyre changing demonstration on the Saturday afternoon.

We should have Suzuki “show bags” and a couple of V Strom demos for people to check out. I will have a demo DR650 and DR200 and my Dr650 available for test rides also and we are going to dream up a couple of awards to hand out to DR riders like VSM open orders and maybe with Suzuki's help a couple of special Suzuki prizes.

So please spread the word, get a DR group together and make a weekend of it. Don't worry, you can invite your friends with "other brands", when they see the light they are all potential DR riders too!!
