Plenty To Take In On T̩n̩r̩ Tragics High Plains Run
Cessnock‰Ûªs Potters Brewery was all hands to the pump as 80 TÌ©nÌ©rÌ© Tragics congregated for the start of their annual ride in honour of the legendary Dakar Rally-bred adventure bike.

The five day adventure ride staged last week took riders and crew through Bathurst, Goulburn, Tumut and Cooma to end at the Alpine Hotel in the NSW Snowy Mountains resort of Thredbo.

Participants were treated to a Yamaha bLU cRU ADV Skills Session with Yamaha legend Stephen Gall staged near Cessnock the day before the run started. 23 Tragics gained riding instruction that was put to good use over the next five days riding a range of T̩n̩r̩ models from original 600s right through to new XTZ1200 Super T̩n̩r̩s.

Factory CDR chief technician and long-time T̩n̩r̩ adventure rider Gary Benn rode up from VIC to his first event with a special XTZ750 twin fitted with many original Dakar Rally bike parts. Yamaha Factory Rally Dakar racer Rod Faggotter, made a special guest appearance to ride with the Tragics on the final two days. Stephen Gall hosted an exclusive Q&A session with Rod at the end of day four at Cooma that offered a unique insight into his recent experience in the 2019 Dakar Rally.

Five first model 1983 XT600ZL T̩n̩r̩s joined the run this year - Dave Bottomley, Neil Asplin, Matt Parker-Charlton, Shane Johnston and organiser Andrew Clubb were the riders of the coveted original model large-tanked singles.

Andrew Clubb said of the ride, ‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been another huge week filled with so much TÌ©nÌ©rÌ© spirit! The run this year included stacks of the best TÌ©nÌ©rÌ© riding in central and southern NSW and while conditions were mostly dry, storms late on day two near Crookwell and overnight rain before the start of the final day from Cooma made for ground conditions that were absolutely perfect... and put plenty of smiles on the Tragics‰Ûª faces,‰Û
