“Motorcycle Live is the biggest and best motorcycle show in the UK – it’s as simple as that. I tend to go for two days – to work on one day and to have a look around on another day. I thoroughly enjoy it.” – Toby Moody, motorsport TV presenter and commentator

“The beauty of Motorcycle Live is that you’ve got everything there. Whatever you want to find – it’s a one-stop biking shop, plus the entertainment is absolutely exquisite!” – Steve Parrish, motorsport legend and commentator

“Ramp’d Up is absolutely amazing. It’s brilliant to see all the different riders doing all the stunts, it was just class!” – Oliver Marabella, 22, Market Harborough

“My First Honda Licence is absolutely fabulous. I’ve got three kids of my own so it’s a great way to introduce them to biking. The kids loved it.”- Timothy Byrne, 44, Bristol

“The Entertainment Zone is a great place to see all the racers. There are loads of prizes to be won and it draws in a big crowd. It’s just a really good buzz!” – Gail Jeffreys, 39, Halifax

“Get On is really good. There are a lot of people who may be a bit wary about getting a licence but Get On is great – it’s indoors, you can talk to people and get the facts.” – Karen Bradford, 45, Edinburgh

“The Yamaha Off-Road Zone is great for anyone that hasn’t ridden off-road before. It’s inside too so you don’t have to battle the elements!” – Alex Tennant, 17, Southport
