001The Suzuki Weekend Away is held every year around June/July, at Hotel Numbi & Garden Suites in Mpumalanga, this year it took place from the 29th June – 1st July 2018 and was the eighth annual event.

It all started in 2011 when Suzuki South Africa decided to have a Suzuki Weekend Away, and create an event for the customers to spend time with Suzuki staff and dealers. It opens up channels of communication so the head office team can find out what both dealers and consumers are looking for in the sales and aftersales space. Suzuki Auto South Africa comes along with demo units which are available for test rides during the Weekend. There are also cars from the auto side for test drives.002

On Friday all guests arrive at Hotel Numbi and Garden Suites around 14h00. Everyone has dinner together and everyone is briefed about the activities to take place the following day.

On Saturday everyone meets in the morning and the Suzuki Team hands out route maps with directions for the day. There are a few stops with fun games along the way, but mostly it’s about riding and driving in beautiful Mpumalanga.

We cannot share the games and activities that take place at the Suzuki Weekend Away as they are designed for people who attend, but ask anyone who has attended one and they will tell you that it is a “must attend” event. We have had so many repeat visitors over the years and are open to all makes of motorcycles.

Triumph 2018

2018 Triumph SA Media Launch-11You all know, or should, that Triumph South Africa has new owners and, new everything to be honest. And to confirm their new presence Bill was invited on their first SA launch to show off their new 2018 motorbikes.

Bill was most interested in the all-new Street Triple 765RS and the mighty Speed Triple 1050RS and came away mightily impressed with both new models. But he is the biggest fan of naked bikes so we’re not too surprised.2018 Triumph SA Media Launch-103

He also rode the classic range, which is the Bonneville derived range and a quick blast on the new Tiger range.

Bill says, “ It’s hard to form an opinion on the new 2018 Triumph range after riding so many bikes in just one day”. And we agree…

2018 Triumph SA Media Launch-83So keep watching our New Rides section and we’ll most certainly be trying out these new bikes in much more depth in the very near future. Go Triumph!
