29th February - 1st march 2020
The official Givista Community ride of 2020 kicked off on the 29th of February with a roaring start. A total of 50 participants and media guests locked the available slots almost after it was published.
Givista is an open community for all givi users, followers and fans. It was established in January 2019, to date it stands at 4000+ members and currently strong and growing in Malaysia of which we hope to grow international in time. The community is meant to promote the Givi Explorer lifestyle to all customers as part of a movement to bring the brand and fans together. This also helps us understand our customers closer and collect feedback from our customers.
The destination of the 2020 event was Cameron Highlands, a district in Pahang also known as one of the oldest tourist spots in Malaysia. It is well known for its beautiful surroundings, cool climate, and fun twisties.
The group covered a total of 440kms for the two days, the special guest this time was Bert Boute, the GIVI Explorer world traveller from Belgium who delayed his trip to Australia to have a taste of the local scenery and ride with the community.
The convoy was split into two groups – one for bikes 200cc and above, while the other was for bikes below 200cc for safety reasons. Upon arrival at the Villa (Dear Dino Villa), guests were greeted with chocolate-coated strawberries and hot strawberry tea. Rooms were provided adequately and some even requested to camp out beneath the stars… The night continued with a meal to remember local delights and a special BBQ prepared by the GIVI Asia Team.
The highlight of the night was the sharing session by Bert who gave a presentation during the explorer sharing session where special guests are given a slot to share their experience or adventures with the participants. Bert told his adventures and shared advice to other upcoming explorers or travellers with the do’s and don’ts. He shared a few humorous moments as well that kept the guests glued to their seats.
Till the next ride… and next adventure “Explore. Enjoy”
