Archive for January, 2012
Hello to all our Family, Friends, Sponsors and Supporters .
GHR would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone well over the festive season, especially all the riders going to the 2012 Dakar Rally.
As you will have already noticed, GHR are not participating in the 2012 Dakar because we have been busy building the new bike.
We would like to thank everybody who has been working on this project, especially Simon for his tireless efforts in putting together a jigsaw of new parts, Robin and his crew at Safari Tanks, Brian and his crew at Force Accessories and Brent and Helen at Incite Graphics for their sleepless nights getting the graphics ready for the recent Motorcycle show.
Honda Australia had both Safari 1st and 2nd Outright bikes and the Dakar prototype bike on the stand at the Motorcycle show. Following the MC show the bikes were then taken to the local Colo Vale Public School Fair, where 150 kids had their photos taken on the bikes and money raised going back to the school. For 2012 GHR will be attending the Condo 750, Finke Desert Race, Hattah Desert Race and the Australasian Safari officially for Honda Australia.
GHR will also be attending the 2013 Dakar Rally in South America with private clients and hope to raise the money to be able to take both Jake and Todd Smith.
We expand into the building next door in January and would like to take the opportunity to welcome Rob Ingram on board full time. Rob has been on many Safaris with the team and will be busy fabricating the new transporters which we aim to use throughout the race year home and abroad.
We’d like to thank all the crew for their extra efforts on Safari this year – we could not have done it without you. 1 and 2 outright at the end of every day against Australia and the world’s best is a fitting result of the ability and effort of you all.
To all our clients who challenged themselves at events with us this year, we thank you and look forward to further adventures together. GHR Honda would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to an even bigger and better 2012.
