The day I received my very own TOUROZ Trike, it was love at first sight!
I have been riding since 2013. I was 49 years old and on my learners permit when I bought a Yamaha 650 Classic. I am not sure if it was my age or the bike, but I never felt safe on two wheels and lacked confidence and felt unsafe riding it, so I sold it and became a pillion on the back of my husband’s Harley where I stayed for many years.
But my heart was yearning for freedom and the thrill of riding my own motorcycle, so I started my search for a bike that would suit me and overcome my safety concerns.
We attended the Dubbo Bike Rally in 2019, and this is where we met Col, Australian distributor and owner of TOUROZ Trikes.
We were so impressed with TOUROZ Trikes’ quality and reputation; my husband Craig sold his Harley and bought his first trike.
I instantly loved being a passenger on a TOUROZ Trike.
The freedom, accessibility, safety and comfort from the passenger seat was what I was missing being the pillion on two wheels. And although riding in the passenger seat of Craig’s new trike afforded me unimpeded views and comfort, I was longing to hit the open road as the rider of my own luxurious freedom machine.
In October 2020, I purchased my first trike (not a Touroz).
I suffer with back, knee and neck pain, but I found riding my trike to be pain free. I could ride it all day.
I loved that trike, and I also loved the triking community.
One of the best things about owning a trike is the three-wheeling adventures with the 3-wheeling community across Australia.
Owning my first trike propelled me to my next dream which was to own a “purple” TOUROZ Trike and everyone in our triking family knew it.
You only have to look at my hair to know I’m crazy about the colour purple!
I contacted Col in October 2022 and the journey to a custom built trike, straight from Germany, was started.
Col was amazing to deal with and kept me up to date throughout the whole process from the initial configuration of my trike through to delivery.
Although purple wasn’t in Rawaco’s colour options, Col made it happen, negotiating with Germany for more than three weeks.
This is what I love about TOUROZ… the service is amazing, they are only a phone call away and always happy to answer any questions!
People are blown away when they see my new purple trike. I stop for photos and people take videos too.
TOUROZ Trikes have a WOW factor. They really are head turners!
I absolutely love riding my trike, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Craig and I ride every weekend and often with our triking community.
For now, our next trip is down to TOUROZ Trikes headquarters where my trike is having her first service.
Then in June, we will ride 370klm to Ivory’s Rock, in August 280klm to Lake Awooga (Gladstone) and in November, it’s our United Trikers’ Christmas Party at Tin Can Bay.
In between those weekends away, I’m sure we’ll be riding somewhere. It won’t matter where we ride, on a TOUROZ Trike for bikers turned trikers like us, we’ll be living the dream!
