The cold weather creeping in might mean the end of the summer motorcycling season, but every cloud has a silver lining and for many bike fans across the UK, that silver lining is Motorcycle Live. This year’s show will open its doors at The NEC, Birmingham on Saturday 28 November and run at full revs for nine days, bringing modern motorcycling to life and offering adult visitors no fewer than six FREE opportunities to ride a bike.

When looking at shiny new machines just isn’t enough, the Test Ride Zone supported by Shoei, Sidi and Spada offers a great line up of bikes from the leading manufacturers for visitors to try on the open road, all for FREE. Those yet to pass their test can also have a go, thanks to the industry-backed Get On campaign, which will give aspiring bikers a FREE first taste of riding a motorcycle or scooter with the help of an experienced instructor.


Visitors will have the opportunity to give off-road riding a try thanks to the FREE Yamaha AMCA MX Experience, which will provide expert tuition on a range of off-road machinery around an indoor dirt track specially built for Motorcycle Live. The ACU Try Trials feature also makes a welcome return, offering visitors 15-minute taster sessions of this super-skilled two-wheel discipline.

Two manufacturers – Yamaha and BMW – will also be bringing their own FREE riding experiences to Motorcycle Live. The popular Yamaha Dark Side MT Tour will make its final stop of the season at The NEC, bringing with it a fleet of MT-09 Tracers plus MT-09 and MT-07 demo bikes that will be available for visitors to enjoy in escorted test rides.

Meanwhile, the BMW GS Trophy Experience will add a touch of adventure and excitement to Motorcycle Live, giving visitors a chance to learn and try some of the handling techniques taught at Simon Pavey’s world-famous BMW Off Road Skills school using BMW GS motorcycles.


Motorcycle Live 2015 will run from 28 November to 6 December. Advance tickets are on sale now, at just £17.50 per adult, £11 for Seniors and £7 for children aged 11-16 (kids aged 10 and under accompanied by a paying adult go free). There is also a £20.50 advance ticket, which includes entry to the show and a choice of Oxford neck wear worth £15. To book, call 0844 581 2345 or visitwww.motorcyclelive.co.uk.
