Roads We Ride | Part 3

Here is the 3rd installment of ROADS WE RIDE, a collaboration between Transport for NSW, Pipeburn and Stories of Bike.


This episode features one of our members Matt Laxton and his Ducati Evoluzione MH900e, which you might have seen on the odd occasion in the workshop getting some love.

This episode details one of Matt's favourite stretches, the Macquarie Pass, and Matt gives us his tips for riding and enjoying "The Pass" safely.

We at RSW think this a great initiative highlighting why we ride, and it's great to see the topic becoming a conversation between riders that acknowledges the importance of safety and enjoyment, which in the end is why we ride.

Enjoy.

Roads We Ride | Part 2

Here is the second installment of ROADS WE RIDE, an initiative from Transport For NSW to approach rider safety in a more conversational, rider-to-rider way which we think is great, as it has actual riders talking about their favourite roads to ride, their bikes, and their advice and approach to rider safety. It’s also beautifully shot by our mates at Stories of Bike and Pipeburn, and also happens to feature our mates, so it really couldn’t get any better than that in our eyes.

Champo is a really friendly and approachable guy, who is also a gifted rider on any bike and any surface.

This episode features one of Champo’s favourite stretches of road, the Old Pacific Highway, where hundreds of riders from all around descend every Sunday to enjoy the riding and scenery the road has to offer.

We at RSW think this a great initiative highlighting why we ride, and it's great to see the topic becoming a conversation between riders that acknowledges the importance of safety and enjoyment, which in the end is why we ride.

Enjoy.

Deus Bike Build Off | Bondi 2016

Deus Bike Build Off | Bondi 2016

The annual BBO is becoming an important event for enthusiasts to work toward a deadline each year for their project builds. The core of the build off is to do the most with the least, where each entrant gets to talk about their build before a panel of judges and answer their questions. There was clearly a thirst for this kind of event for motorcyclists, where some drove their motorcycles from Melbourne for the day just for this event!
