Hellooo
« Gepost op: 11-01-2016, 19:48 »
 Hello allemaal!
After some google research I’ve arrived to your forum and hopefully I’ll find some answers here :) But first let me introduce a bit myself:
I’ve arrived to the Netherlands one year ago, I come from Spain (Barcelona) where I’ve always been surrounded by (motor)bikes
I used to do trial and some enduro before, but then I moved to Sweden and a year ago I've arrived to Amsterdam, so it’s been a while that I haven’t ride anything other than an “oma fiets” so I really want to go back on a bike and ride, but it’s kind of hard when you are new in a place and you don’t know anything here, and none who loves that sport as much as I do. So let me go straight to the point.
My idea is to buy a something like a KTM 690 or BMW or Honda… Still haven’t decided. So I can ride off road, but also that I can go anywhere I want if I need to and aswell that I don’t have to spend lots of money on maintenance. So given that context the following questions arise:


1 - Where can I go near Amsterdam to ride on some dirt? (No circuits or competitive stuff, just to spend a day and have fun)
2 - Is there anyplace where I can practice before actually going on a route? (Like some sort of track or something)
3 - Which bike would you recommend, and where I could buy it? :) I was thinking about 2nd bikes to start with.
4 - Do you guys organize routes within The Netherlands so I could join and you could actually show me some nice paths?


Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post! I know there are similar posts already about it but ye, I thought it would be easier to write my own :p


Cheers!

1. Too bad, you live in on of the croudier places in the Netherlands. To the east and south there are many dirt roads available to ride on, your place not a lot.
2. There are MX tracks, but also not alot in your neighborhood. Also there is a place e.g. in Ijmuiden which is called ''de kuil'' which can be translated to something like hole or ditch, kinda explains what it is. It is not necessarily legal, but it is tolerated.
3. You can look at www.marktplaats.nl e.g. or here in the ''rommelmarkt'' section of the forum. or go to some dealer
4. Yes we do, there are a couple of events (more days) and also rides organised.

Thanks guys! The kuil looks nice to get used to the bike and have some fun.

How far are those dirt roads from Amsterdam? I would not mind doing some highway kms before reaching the paths.

Hi,


In general, the best places are in the south end east of the Netherlands. If you look at the map: all around Breda - Tilburg - Eindhoven up to the Belgian and German border is ok.
If you are not well known there it might be difficult to find the right track and you must at least know a bit what is legal, what is certainly not and what is the grey area in between.


We have some more or less organized events, but to start with this might be the right one for you: http://allroadmaniacs.nl/forum/index.php?topic=20789.0


It is in the neighbourhood of Eindhoven, so 1,5 hours away from you, but you will have a pretty good idea of what this part of Holland offers off road.

100+ km
quite a distance, depending on your bike. If you're looking for a one bike fits all solution, the KTM 690 is a good option.

Ik heb eerst Fries geprobeerd maar dat wilde niet lukken......
Kun je geen trial mee doen met 'n 690.....
Heb er 'n paar weken op 'n finca gezetten, in Cataluña, zoals wij hier in Brabant A.B.N. praten als en vreemden of gasten zijn doen zij dat daar ook, pas als het erg informeel wordt en of er geen gasten zijn heb je kans dat ze Catalan babbelen.

Yes indeed that was my biggest worry, knowing where to go and where not to. But 1,5h is doable (with the right bike ) so I'll try to join the road trips!

Gracias! Te escribo por privado :) Aunque en principio trial no es mi idea hacer ya que no hay sitios en Amsterdam para ello.

Nunspeet es perfecto por ti, cross y trail. Es un club marvillosa. Sabado si. No, no domingo en Nunspeet.
En el club sitio, por mujer, mucho mas caminar en naturleza.

Nice one. Already prepared for a nice built-off with the rest of the Rally Raid kit: http://www.rally-raidproducts.co.uk/KTM-690-Enduro-R-SMC/ktm-690-enduro-rally-fairing-kit


Did mine too:





No problem to do highway stuff for a few hours, do some dirt riding and go back home.


I'm living 1h15m east from Amsterdam, down the A1 highway. Enough dirtroads in this area to have a nice day out. I'll show you around when you've got your bike.
