Good month for…

RiDE (UK) - - Welcome... -

SAM SUN­DER­LAND Af­ter be­com­ing the first Brit to win the Dakar Rally in 2017, KTM rider Sam Sun­der­land re­ceived the pres­ti­gious Se­grave Tro­phy from the RAC. It makes him only the ninth mo­tor­cy­clist since 1930 to re­ceive the prize, awarded for “out­stand­ing skill, courage and ini­tia­tive on land, wa­ter and in air — the Spirit of Ad­ven­ture”.

SUZUKI AD­VEN­TURE TRIPS Suzuki has launched a new range of alu­minium lug­gage for its V-strom 1000 (see p86 for how to buy a used one). The three-piece kit of­fers 112 litres of car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity. In­clud­ing fit­ting, it costs £1195 — which is sub­stan­tial but saves more than £300 over buy­ing the el­e­ments in­di­vid­u­ally. If you’re in the mar­ket for a smaller, A2 ad­ven­ture bike, the V-strom 250 comes with free pan­niers (worth £625) un­til the end of June.

JIM MEM­BER­SHIP A brief con­grat­u­la­tions to RIDE’S Jim Black­stock, who passed his test and is now ready to ter­rorise the mean streets of Bed­ford­shire… See the New Rider sup­ple­ment for his story.
