2017 RUSH Rumble – Powered by Sherco

4 months ago | Words: Lindsay Bond | Photos: TCM Photography

The inaugural Rush Rumble trail bike rally staged on the NSW South Coast has proven to be a weekend-long festival of great riding on pristine trails. Open to licensed riders on registered motorcycles, the Rumble attracted riders from all across NSW.
The Rush Rat Pack had been working overtime for months leading up to the event to make sure the tracks were pristine and catered for everyone from the hardcore to the cruiser and after talking to as many people as we could, we came to the conclusion that we had delivered the perfect mix. The trails were awesome, the weather was perfect and everyone that turned up had a smile from ear to ear.

Friday afternoon riders started turning up and it was great to see a good mix of different machines, and even better to see a lot of Sherco’s on the trailers, With the three dealers and the Rush bikes all available to test ride, and the separate test loop, all of the Sherco bikes were out both days, and a number of new bikes ordered straight away.

We asked everyone that rode the new Sherco machines on Sunday to give us some feedback and everyone said they were surprised how good the bikes were and that they would definitely consider the Sherco when they upgrade.
All riders were catered for, we had firewood supplied for everyone, the spit roast dinner filled everyone to the top and the band was easy listening after a big day riding and sitting around the campfire with mates, I’m not sure if it gets any better than that.

The calibre of people that were there was great, there were no issues, no hooligans, and everyone was respectful of their fellow riders, which in turn creates an atmosphere that everyone wants to be involved in, and I’m sure that every rider there will be the first to book in for the next event.
We only had one casualty with a broken wrist and badly bruised ego, and I trust he is okay and will be back.

Big thanks to the St Johns Ambulance team and Sherco for all their support.
