Cyclops Adventure Sports, along with nearly 30 other vendors, showcased their latest adventure-motorcycle gear and services at the 2017 KTM Adventure Rider Rally.
The 2017 KTM Adventure Rider Rally was held in Crested Butte, Colorado for the second time in three years. With nearly 500 attendees including a massive staff of KTM event planners, celebrity riders, world-class racers and helpful technicians, it was a popular destination to say the least. On top of that, nearly 30 vendors from the Adventure Motorcycling industry showcased their latest adventure-motorcycle gear and services.
We had a quick chat with Cyclops Adventure Sports’ Darryl VanNiewenhuise inside their booth at the KTM Adventure Rider Rally to see why they made the trip, what kind of cool new stuff they have and what they think the KTM Adventure Rider Rally is all about.
What product is drawing the most interest from the attendees at the KTM Rally?
Darryl VanNiewenhuise: This is my second rally and the first time we are a vendor. I had such a good time at the first one and finally our schedule opened up and we could make it to this one.
Actually, our shirts have been the most popular thing in our booth this week! We’re giving away prizes at the banquet dinner tonight to anyone wearing our shirts. We’re going to pick a couple people out of the crowd and give them a lighting system or a $100!
Everyone has also been very interested in our LED bulbs. KTM is absolutely the number-one brand we sell to mostly because I love the bikes and brand—every motorcycle I own is pretty much a KTM and I love the big adventure bikes. I like to ride them hard and do things most people don’t think you can do on them. Today, I was told five times I can’t take the trail I was on. Well, we did it and we had an absolute blast today!
Why should riders consider attending the KTM Adventure Rider Rally?
Darryl VanNiewenhuise: Comradarie, meeting people and getting to see their bikes and how it’s set up and why it’s important to them are all the best reasons to come here. Also, this is the only event where you actually get to meet the Factory professionals and the people from the company. You don’t see anyone like that at any of the other rallies out there.CN
