at the Melbourne Motorcycle Show

So much to do and so little time. will be launched at the Melbourne Motorcycle Show this weekend. Our first articles will appear in Trailzone issue #14 and you can get a copy at the show before it hits the newstands. In addition to the offroadexplorer column there's a test on the BMW F650GS Dakar and a five page spread on our first Adventure Ride through the historical NSW gold country to Hill End. We also filmed the trip so you'll be able to watch it on Trail Zone's first DVD to be released with issue #15. Our next trip will be in Victoria and then we'll hopefully hook up with some mates in the Sunshine State for another two day ride.

Even though the idea of an epic sounds great we want to provide you with destinations that you can do in a weekend out of each capital city and get you of the beaten track as soon as possible.

By the time Issue #15 comes around we will have taken delivery of our first project bike, a Kawasaki KLR650. Over three issues we'll be giving you setup tips and show you that you don't have spend a heap of money to explore the back-roads of Australia.

If you're at the Melbourne show be sure to drop in to the Trail Zone stand and say Gidday.

  1. Dear ORE, Hey guys, your site sounds like it is gonna be good. Old Farts like me who are deep into adventure riding are going to be deep into your site. When does it all go live? Thanks, Chad.
  2. Well Chad, Lets just get one thing straight. This site isn't just for old farts and we love single track just as much as anyone else. You just have to take a look at the first Trailzone DVD coming out with Issue #15 of Trailzone magazine. Sure we're not spring chickens and on video we've got heads that look good wearing full face helmets but we're far from being old farts. As for we expect to have the Forum and Travel section up for the Sydney Motorcycle Show. We've had a heap of people register for our Enews at the show and also online so the pressure is on. What I can promise you is that over time we'll have some excellent touring routes for you and your mates to check out. As for you single track hungry riders keep your eye out for Trailzone Issue #15 which is chocka full of great rides including Rainbow Beach Qld, Yackandandah Vic and Flinders Ranges SA. Plus offroadexplorer's first Adventure Bike ride to Hill End NSW which you will be able to find more info about in our Travel section soon. Cheers Lance
  3. Hi Graham, I checked out the Aprilia at the Melbourne Motorcycle Show and I'm keen to throw a leg over one as soon as possible. I can't promise anything as manufacturers only have certain bikes available in their media test fleets but rest assured I'm on the case. Cheers, Lance
