- Location: Hamilton, New Zealand
- Bike: Suzuki DR650 ADV
Motomail had a BMW 1200GS setup with some serious looking Kreiga luggage
Carbon Garage had a very tidy R80G/S on their stand, for sale for around $10k I think.
The Enfield Himalayan had a very comfy gel seat and also good ergonomics for me. I’m quite keen to test ride one of these. The smaller Himalayan motor apparently goes quite a lot better than the 500 in the road models, and at 410cc it’s cheaper rego than a DR650 or KLR650.
Not an adventure bike but I’d love a Kawasaki GT550 as I used to have one as a London Courier bike. This is the 750 which is mostly the same but the 750 is about 10-15cm longer at the tank, and doesn’t really go any faster.
Round the World rider Chantal Simons was working on the Honda stand and came by to have a chat, she’s a very inspiring lady and is keen to inspire other women.
Chantal also rode a Yamaha XT250 from Australia to Holland and you can read about that on her blog, Chick On The Chook Chaser.
