I went to the ride day at Calder park a couple of years ago and it was awesome, very well run. If it's the same as it was then, when you register online you get to pick which bike you want to test ride and what time. You get about 15 minute allocations to complete the loop. The loop itself took about 10-15 minutes to complete depending on your speed and ability. It had everything you might find on a trail with hill climbs, steep declines, creek crossings and a grass track section . Both hard and easy options. Well worth doing if you're considering a new bike.

I've not attended the Calder Park event so can't advise. I did the Cranbourne event in November last year which was on flat land with a few obstacles.  The lap was about 15mins long and a good chance to try out various bikes before you commit to buying one. I ended up buying another bike as a result.

This was Demoday at Pakenham in November last year.

 

Here is the Calder Park Demoday from last year.

I'm heading out. Who else is going?

Hey All. Just a heads up.

Received a text last night saying the Demoday has been postponed for a week as the Huskies aren't available until then.

I rode the Sherco, Ktm, and Husky 300, sadly in my opinion I was really disappointed with the Sherco. It wasn't until I rode the Sherco I realised how good the the Ktm/husky was. Especially the husky in stock form. The new frame, weight reduction and the counter balancer make a big difference

The tx300 forks felt firm and tracked very straight, point and shoot. About what I expected from the air forks. The Te/exc felt quite soft, never bottomed out though or done anything surprising.
For me they all would need to be setup with springs and possibly a revalve.

I thought the same thing about the vibes too. It is really noticeable.
The Sherco 300 was the bike I was looking forward to riding most and have to say the most disappointing on the day.

No experience with the Beta 300, I believe it was one of the first bikes booked out on the demo day. From everyone I have spoken with regarding beta they were all very happy with it.
