NEW HAINES MC EMPLOYEE!

We’d like to welcome the newest member of the team Otis Taylor who joined our business full time on January 3rd after spending several Saturdays with us. He enjoys riding his trials bike and in past years has been competing at the local clubs and riding around his farm. Otis has made a big impact  here at Haines MC since joining, one of the great differences is the amount of images and products now on the website. He has also been very helpful to customers ordering over the phone and in store.

The GP450 set to enter the record books in 2017

March 2017 - Six serving British military personnel will set off from Ushuaia, the most southerly town in the world, heading for the opposite end of the Americas, destination Prudhoe Bay some 15000 miles north. Not only will the team be taking the more scenic routes away from the metalled Pan-American Highway, they aim to be the first team of motorcyclists to ride the route by crossing the notorious and road-less Darien Gap, a dense 300-mile swathe of lawless jungle, and the domain of life-threatening flora and fauna.

There are few motorcycles suitable for a trip of this magnitude; lighter bikes offer limited range and load-carrying ability, whereas anything else that has the attributes for such an expedition would be impossibly heavy to traverse the swamps and rivers of the Darien. Channel 4s new series. Walking The Americas, demonstrates how challenging this expedition will be, as former soldier Levison Wood, attempts to walk from Mexico to Colombia and through the inhospitable terrain along the way.

At 130kg kerb weight, with a 200kg payload and a fuel range of 400km, the GP450 Adventure was the obvious choice for the all British team.

Gas Gas is reinforcing its enduro line-up with Antoine Basset. The French rider is returning to the brand from Girona to ride the new Gas Gas EC300, which he is going to use in the Wold EnduroGP Championship and the French National in the Élite E3 category.
 
Antoine Basset, one of the star players in French enduro throughout the last few years, is returning to Gas Gas, the company where he had already been riding during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
Fourth classified in the E3 category of the last World Enduro Championship and eleventh in the general EnduroGP, Antoine Basset is to re-join to reinforce the Gas Gas Factory Enduro Team. This is a team that is about to undergo a great transformation in its sporting structure in 2017.
Basset is to join Jonathan Barragán in the official team and will be riding the same bike as the rider from Madrid, the innovative Gas Gas EC300, presented as ‘Project Phoenix’ in the last EICMA show in Milan, a symbol of the intense renovation of the brand in enduro.
This experienced 29 year old rider from Bersaçon, French runner up in the Élite E3 category for the last two years, is to combine his riding in the most prestigious international event with the French Championship, the toughest European National competition, where he will be fighting to retake the top category.
