Motorcycle Live 2013 is not just for seasoned bikers. Anyone thinking about getting on two wheels for the first time or coming back to motorcycling after time away can take advantage of a FREE taster session with the Get On experience – and there’s good news for younger riders too, as it is now open to anyone aged 15 and over.

Motorcycle live

Participants in Get On* – which is an industry-backed nationwide campaign encouraging non-riders to enjoy the benefits of life on two wheels – will receive expert tuition on either a scooter or a 125cc motorcycle in a specially constructed private area. Advance bookings for the 20-minute taster sessions are being taken now and can be booked at by entering The NEC postcode – B40 1NT.

For those visitors already immersed in life on two wheels, the Test Ride Zone will make a welcome return to Motorcycle Live thanks to Shoei, Sidi and Spada, and a great line up of bikes from leading manufacturers. Accompanied by out-riders, visitors get a real feel for their chosen bike and then have the chance to visit the manufacturer stand with any questions they may have.

Motorcycle Show

Along with a FREE ride, all the safety equipment is provided, so visitors travelling to the show by train or car are still able ride. An experienced Shoei, Sidi and Spada product technician will be on hand to ensure all kit fits correctly. Bikes available to ride will be confirmed nearer the show.
