Motorcycle Live to offer six free opportunities to ride a bike

Motorcycle Live

Summer is behind us and winter is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean it’s all doom and gloom. While the poor weather and short days may limit your riding opportunities, at least there is Motorcycle Live to look forward to.

This year’s show opens its doors at The NEC in Birmingham on Saturday 28 November and runs for nine days until Sunday 6 December. As well as a host of exhibitors and live entertainment there will be no fewer than six free opportunities to ride a bike. ‘How’, you say? Listen up…

1. Test Ride Zone

If you want more than to just stare at the shiny new machines, the Test Ride Zone will offer a great line up of bikes from leading manufacturers to try on the open road.

2. The Get On Campaign

Haven’t yet passed your test? No worries, the industry-backed Get On Campaign will provide aspiring riders a free first taste of riding a motorbike or scooter with aid from an experienced instructor.

3. Yamaha AMCA MX Experience

Those who are more off-road biased will be able to enjoy an off-road experience under expert tuition on a range of off-road machinery around an indoor dirt track courtesy of the Yamaha AMCA MX Experience.

4. ACU Try Trials

The ACU Try Trials feature will also be making a return this year offering visitors the chance to embark on 15-minute taster sessions on trial bikes under the tuition of the ACU certified coaches.

5. Yamaha Dark Side MT Tour

The popular Yamaha Dark Side MT Tour will also be making its final stop of the season at Motorcycle Live which means visitors will get to try out MT-09 Tracers, plus MT-09 and MT-07 demo bikes on escorted rides.

6. BMW GS Trophy Experience

Last but definitely not least, the BMW GS Trophy Experience will be adding a touch of adventure and excitement to the event giving visitors a chance to get to grips with various handling techniques that are taught at Simon Pavey’s world-famous BMW Off Road Skills school.
