Come and Try it!


Just over 4 months isn’t a long time to arrange Visas, transport, save money, finish preparing the bike, sort out water purifiation, a camping hamock (maybe) – along with all the other stuff I’ve probably forgotten. But, there’s always time for a day off and a spot of racing!

The Sidecar Racing club of Victoria had their come and try it day, it was a blast. I got to ride Bernie’s outfit most of the day, which I’ve been passenger on this year. It’s fantastic, so much so that I’d even consider buying one at some point in the future. Old friends and new came along and gave it their all, it was a truely superb day!

The outfit had been painted and the fairing all repaired, so it was a bonus to drive it on full song. Amazing machine! Now I have to get back to the hum-drum of planning a trip, the not so glamorous part and (specifcally) the part I hate most!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
