Mototechniks open day


Today was the open day. I had arranged to go with my friends Pete and meet our friend Arthur there. Unfortunately Pete’s bike was off of the road, so he came on the back of my bike.

Test ride

Pete and myself had pre-booked a test ride on a Yamaha MT09 and a Yamaha MT10. We signed the paperwork and were shown the controls of both bikes by Neil the salesman. The MT10 especially, is far more technical than my own bike. Anti wheelie, traction control, cruse control and 3 modes each changing throttle response etc.

Yamaha MT09


Of the two machines I preferred the MT10. I didn’t personally notice much difference between my own bike and the 09. The 10 however is a total hooligan machine. The power was incredible. I loved the quickshifter on both bikes.

Goodie bag

The reasons behind the open day were to celebrate 65 years of Yamaha and also the opening of the extention to Mototechniks. After the test rides, we given a goodie bag each containing a t-shirt, a pen, a coaster and a magazine. Thank you Mototechniks.

I do love a freebie


There was a burger van outside. I took on some much needed food and a drink. Inside was a barber cutting hair for charity. The ever friendly and knowledgeable staff were on hand to answer any questions and also to ensure social distancing and wearing of face masks was maintained at all times inside the shop. Hand sanitiser was freely available.

Some of the attendees


There was a good turn out. A vast array of bikes and riders. Hopefully everyone has a good a time as I did. For service, sales and parts I cannot recommend the guys at mototechniks enough. Thank you for a great day.
