Honda Adventure Centre, Wales


Massive thanks to Kim for the best birthday (21st of course) present ever - a 2 day off road training session at the brilliant Honda Adventure Centre. Although based in Merthyr Tydfil, the riding is done in stunning countryside near the Brecon Beacons.


If you have ever wished to try riding off road, or wish to improve your skills in the dirt, I wholeheartedly recommend these guys. They are patient, (really needed with a total dirt novice like me!) and build your confidence to a point that you end up doing things you never thought possible! Well done & big thanks to the trainers: Pat, Flash & Ryan. 

We used pretty much brand new CRF1000L Africa Twin Motorcycles, which for a big bike (1000cc, 230Kg) were just great (on and) off road, and could do absolutely anything that we could throw at them. Much to my amazement, I thoroughly enjoyed riding the Dual Clutch (Automatic) version.

If you are in the market for a "giant trailie" - test ride this bike in manual, then DCT, then get your order in quick - they're selling like hot cakes!
