The weather couldn’t have been better for our first demo day of the year on Saturday 29 April.
Our friends from Suffolk Advanced Motorcyclists (SAM) ran the demo side of things, leading accompanied rides on set routes from our Ranelagh Road dealership in Ipswich. They were also on hand to give tips/advice to customers about improving their riding skills and to promote the advanced motorcycle test.
A fleet of 20 demo motorbikes, covering all three brands, was available on the day and our sales team were on hand to answer questions about the bikes.
The demo rides typically lasted 45 minutes. From the showroom, the route went out towards Hadleigh, then ‘north’ to Bildeston before looping back to Ipswich via Willisham, Somersham, Little Blakenham and Sproughton. Each ride began with the SAM ‘observer’ giving customers a brief once-over of the bike they had chosen to ride. We’re pleased to say that a total of 74 ride outs were completed.
Dave Willis said: “I’m really pleased with how the day went. We had great weather, a lot of customers and consequently there was a real buzz outside the showroom.”
