Basic touring fans meet up in northern Denmark until Sunday.
Since the late seventies, a group of motorcycle clubs in the north western part of Europe, and especially Demark, has been organising the “Thy Traef”, which is a basic type of motorcycling with only a minimum of baggage: a tent, a lot of good humour and a spirit of friendship.
This year, Thy Treaf is among the events in the FIM Touring Challenge 2017 and the organisers welcome all foreign riders, as they always have done. Over the years the meeting has attracted riders from Norway, Sweden, Germany, The Netherlands and even Spain.
The first campers put up the tents after the gates were opened at noon on Thursday and the new arrivals were treated to a welcome drink as usual.
If you are a motorcyclist and you are interested in participating in these events or others like them, please contact your national FIM member federation or its partner for touring activities. You can also obtain more information on fim-live.com or visit FIM Touring on Facebook.
The FIM has been the International Federation for motorcycling activities, in both sport and beyond sport, since 1904 and welcomes riders of all kinds of motorcycles and motorcyclists of all ages, genders and nationalities to our Touring events.
