R&G LAUNCHES LIMITED EDITION IRON MAIDEN TROOPER BEER KNEE SLIDERS

 



R&G is launching a special edition of its Aero Knee Sliders, featuring the iconic Iron Maiden Eddie logo, as used by Peter Hickman on his way to securing a podium in the Isle of Man TT Supersport race. R&G will be making just 50 pairs of these stunning replicas.


The original R&G / Trooper Aero Knee Sliders were created for Peter Hickman to use in the 2017 Isle of Man TT Supersport races, where he secured a third place finish, and now R&G and Big Dawg Hydrographics Suppliers have decided to create a limited run of replicas. Coming in white, the slider shows Iron Maiden’s Eddie bursting through a hole in the shape of the TT course, clutching a flag featuring the three legs of Man. 

R&G’s Aero Knee Sliders have been developed with feedback from racers and road riders alike and are used around the world. The sliders are made from a blend of composite materials to ensure the rider gets the best feedback and attach simply and securely via Velcro ® hooks. 

The Iron Maiden Aero Knee Sliders are on a first-come-first-serve basis, costing £32.99, and can be obtained by contacting Alan Garrett, UK Sales Manager, on 01420 89007 or alan.garrett@rg-racing.com or via http://www.rg-racing.com/ 

R&G UK Sales Manager Alan Garrett commented: “Since unveiling the Iron Maiden Knee Sliders ahead of the TT this year, we’ve been inundated with requests from people all over the world. Working with Big Dawg Hydrographics Suppliers, we’ve created a very limited run of replicas for fans to purchase. Although with just 50 pairs being made, they are sure to sell out quickly.”

Triumph rider becomes youngest person to ride solo around the world

A Triumph rider has officially become the youngest person to circumnavigate the world solo by motorcycle.

 

 

English adventurer and record holder, Kane Avellano, received his Guinness World Record certificate after travelling over 32,000 miles in just under eight months on his Triumph Bonneville.

 

The 23-year-old travelled through over 35 different countries and six continents, all whilst raising over £2,200 for UNICEF, the world’s leading charity organisation working for children in danger.

 

The youngest person to complete the challenge alone, Kane faced many dangerous situations, including torrential monsoons in India, blistering desert rides in Australia, powerful stormsin South America and freezing weather in Europe.

 

Kane, who arrived home from the trip in early 2017, said: “The past eight months have been the most exciting in my life. I had the chance to discover what the world really has to offer, tomeet many different people along the way and explore their cultures, religions and behaviours, while having an incredible time.

 

“This will be the first motorcycle circumnavigation to be verified by Guinness in 14 years and I’m really pleased it was done on my Triumph – it’s a bike I’ve shared lots of memories with and was the perfect bike for the job, albeit not your conventional adventure bike.”

Bikers leap into Bexhill for a sensational MotoFest.

 

 

On Sunday July 30th  over 7,000 motorbikes rumbled into town for the fourth  annual Bexhill MotoFest which celebrates Bexhill on Sea being the birthplace of British motorcycle racing and modern motorcycle journalism. The event was held in partnership with Swinton Insurance for the first time. The bikers mixed well with locals and other visitors to create a fantastic family friendly atmosphere. Bikes were parked all up Devonshire Road, on the De La Warr lawns and all along the sea front. The iconic De La Warr pavilion making a stunning backdrop to this unique motorcycle and music event.

 

Motorcycle stunt shows, mini moto demonstrations, great live music, traders and exhibitors all welcomed the bikers and the locals responded fantastically by coming out and supporting the event. Over 11,000 people attended, many of them families having an exciting day beside the sea.

 

British Superbike Racer Bradley Ray was a popular guest among the teams of mini moto enthusiasts who were thrilled by all action demonstrations of the sport that is fast becoming a feeder for international race series. Two stunt teams, Moto Sports International and Stunted Reality, wowed the crowds with a fast paced mix of street stunting and traditional family stunts including a motorcycle through the firewall, car leaps and wheelies. Local estate agents Polecat Properties once again hosted the live stage which rocked throughout the day to the sound of great rock n pop – the show was headlined by STONED the best Rolling Stones covers band in the South.

 

Howard Martin of bike1066 the event organisers said; “We would like to thank Swinton Insurance and all our sponsors, partners and stakeholders for helping make BEXHILL MotoFest 2017 such a massive success, the town of Bexhill has been incredibly welcoming and we look forward to building on this years success”
