A woman who rode solo around the world will be a guest speaker at the second annual Touratech Australia Travel Event in April.
The event showcases the German company’s adventure and touring accessories and provides riders with plenty of advice about preparing for their trip.
Touratech promises new presentations so that people who attended this year’s event will still learn something new.
Some of Touratech’s German experts will be coming out for the event, but a highlight should be American adventurer Sherri Jo Wilkins (left).
This year she completed her solo three-year, 128,000km “Because I Can” world tour on a KTM LC4 endure bike (pictured in Australia).
Apart from learning from the experts and checking out the new gear, there will be plenty of opportunity to ride at the event in Bright, Victoria, on April 4-6.
The pretty town is close to the Victorian Alps and some of the greatest riding roads in Australia. There will also be a planned ride to the famous gold-rush settlement of Dargo.
Riders will also be able to test ride new bikes on the Friday of the event.
Bookings can be made on (03) 5729 5529.
Cost is $595 which includes accommodation at the Bright Chalet, all meals, and all activities on the program.
Meanwhile, Touratech Australia is launching a new website in mid-January.
