The AMiD Motorcycle and Lifestyle Show is being held at the Johannesburg Expo Centre at Nasrec this weekend and promises a weekend of non-stop two-wheeled entertainment.
Personalities from the biking world will keep show-goers entertained throughout the four-day event, with competitions for ordinary bikers to enter as well as skill displays from some of our top motorcyclists. There will also be a rock music act outside Hall 5 each day at 12 noon and 3 pm.

The show-section features more than 100 exhibitors, with stands for all the major motorcycle importers and distributors as well as motorcycling lifestyle accessories. A number of new exciting motorcycles are being launched at the show, which has created huge excitement amongst the SA motorcycle industry.
On Thursday at the opening breakfast for the event, a BMW R1200 GS was named as the Pirelli Bike of the Year, and this will be on display, as well as the best from the likes of Yamaha, Triumph, Moto Guzzi, and lots more, as well as some mouth-watering classic motorcycles.
