Last weekend's annual KTM Sunny Corner Trail Bike Rally held in the Sunny Corner State Forest near Bathurst, NSW, has maintained its status as the most popular non-competitive off-road event on the motorcycle calendar with over 600 riders participating in the event.
Now in its 23rd year the, KTM Sunny Corner Trail Bike Rally saw riders of all abilities enjoy two 75km loops of arrowed riding, with many braving the cool evening to camp out, and enjoy the event festivities including live music and a bon-fire to thaw out the cold bones.
KTM Australia continued to support the event by donating a new KTM 450 EXC and KTM 50 SX Mini as prize items for all entrants in the event.
The lucky draw for the KTM 450 EXC went to Steven Vella from Ebenezer, NSW, while the KTM 50 SX went to Tony Roxby of Newcastle, who was over the moon to be bringing home a new mini for his son Daniel.
Motorex KTM Off-Road Racing’s Finke Desert Race heroes Ben (Grabbo) Grabham and Brad (Wonka) Williscroft also participated in the event, putting their competitive calendar aside to enjoy some trail riding with passionate off-road riders.
Team manager and racer, Brad Williscroft said afterwards, “Grabbo and I had a lot of fun just mingling with riders and taking on the trails. It’s always good to get back to basics with riding and enjoy why we ride in the first place – for fun! We had a ball and it was a really well organised event.”
Stay tuned for full details on the 2010 KTM Sunny Corner Trail Bike Rally and be ready to get your entry in.

Just bought the Sept/Oct '09 issue of TRAIL ZONE for some inspiration on mods for my '06 KLX250 since de-restricting it recently (I cannot emphasis how much of an improvement it makes for such little cost, and it's so easy too!) and was reading the free March/April 09 issue that came with it. In one of the letter responses (titled "When this much power is just too much... or too little?") you made in regards to power figures, you said the Yamaha V-Max and R1 had 200kW and 180kW respectively. I wouldn't be surprised if you have been corrected on this already, but I think you meant 200hp and 180hp. It's a simple mistake, or a cheeky test of reader's compression skills, but 200kW is the same as 271hp (http://www.onlineconversion.com/power.htm). And thanks TRAIL ZONE for providing subscribers with the chance to win a new bike, it's an awesome competition! Expect my subscription shortly.

PS. I wish 'my' KLX had kW instead of hp!
