Motorcycle Live – the UK’s biggest bike show – is so much more than a static display of the latest machinery. It also provides visitors with the opportunity to actually get on a bike and ride, both on and off-road.
The Test Ride Zone will make a welcome return to the show thanks to Shoei, Sidi and Spada and a great line-up of bikes from the world’s leading manufacturers. Accompanied by out-riders, visitors with a full motorcycle licence can take a FREE test ride and get a real feel for their chosen model, before visiting the manufacturer stand with any questions they may have.
For visitors keen to swap the tarmac for the dirt, the Yamaha Off-Road Experience offers the chance to do just that on a specially designed indoor circuit. Catering for all levels of experience, chief instructor and former MXGP rider Barry Johnson and his team will guide participants through the required techniques, all for FREE.
Yet another opportunity to ride comes in the form of the ACU Try Trials feature, in association with BUMPY. The FREE 15-minute sessions, hosted by ACU instructors, aim to give an introduction to the highly skilled discipline of trials riding on an indoor course. Trials riding demonstrations by the ACU coaches will also take place daily.
Kids of all ages can also get on two wheels with a whole range of FREE features, including the Kiddimoto Children’s Fun Track for two-12 year olds, Honda’s My First Licence for 5-11 year olds, the Arenacross Youth MX Experience and the Kuberg Children’s Trials feature for 5-12 year olds and Silverstone’s Rookie Rides for those aged 11-16.
Motorcycle Live takes place at The NEC, Birmingham from 22-30 November 2014. Advance tickets are just £17 per adult, £11 for Seniors and £7 for children aged 11-16* (kids ten and under accompanied by a paying adult go free).
