KTM Off-Road Team Boss Hits The Adventure Trail

Posted:

Riders to last weekend's KTM-sponsored Team Moto Adventure ride enjoyed a number of treats along the trail to Stanthorpe and back, including one unexpected one when they got to meet KTM Off-Road Racing Team Manager and all-round Australian dirt bike racing legend Ben Grabham.

Sixty riders including Team Moto staff travelled from Boonah to the overnight stop at Stanthorpe and home again the next day, racking up approximately 750 kilometres of primarily off-road riding along the way.

‰ÛÏIt was fun. I haven't spent a lot of time on the bike this year so it‰Ûªs always good to get out there, I rode the 1190 Adventure R and it‰Ûªs good." Grabham commetned. "It's crazy, crazy, crazy fast. It's the fastest dirtbike I‰Ûªve ever ridden, and I had a ball on it.

"I spent half the time playing around with all the gadgets like traction control and ABS, I had the heated grips going‰Û_ We spent probably a good six or seven hours in the saddle each day, and even though I haven't spent much time on a bike lately, it was comfy as.

"It‰Ûªs also good to get with a group of people like that who are out for the same thing, have a bit of fun and see some new countryside. Obviously they want to hear a lot about your racing and that, but half the time I want to hear stories about their life too.

"The first overnight stop was at Stanthorpe, and I haven't been there for quite a few years. We stayed in a pretty cool cabin and got to go out to dinner and basically chill out and have a good time.‰Û
