Truth be told, our Evening Gatherings are really a differentiator from other events. Even if you did not ride during the day, you don’t want to miss the evening Bench Racing!

Great Videos to Help Get Prepared

The Adventure Bike Gathering is an off road focused event. Here are some great videos that we have shortlisted for you to help you prepare. This is really just a teaser. You should watch all of Brett’s videos at MOTOTREK on YouTube.

Skill Sharing

One thing that makes this event really different is our built-in skill sharing sessions. See the booklet for details.

Basic Bike Set-Up for Offroad

Get your bike ready for going off road! As Brett explains, stock set-up is not ideal, unless you are just riding to Starbucks on your pony.

Riding Dirt & Gravel

This is a great video to get you warmed up for the harder terrain.

Riding Hills
