Motorcycle Live: Get on offers free two-wheel taster sessions at Motorcycle Live


At Motorcycle Live 2012, the motorcycle industry’s Get On campaign will once again be offering FREE two-wheel taster sessions to novice and born-again bikers. For visitors with no experience at all – or even those who have spent some time away and want to get back into biking – the Get On arena should be the first port of call.

Motorcycle Live

Occupying a secure and private area in hall 4, Get On will be offering riders over the age of 16 the chance to take part in a 20-minute taster session with a qualified instructor. Visitors can choose from a range of scooters and motorcycles provided by supporting manufacturers and all safety equipment will be provided. It’s the best way to discover that life really is better on two wheels, but don’t take our word for it, here’s what visitors to the 2011 show had to say…

“I visited the show last year with my son Scott and he had a go with Get On. He’s since completed his CBT so it worked as a great introduction for him!” – Colin Waite, 50, Nuneaton

“I first learned about Get On at Motorcycle Live and did a free session before taking my CBT. It was a brilliant way to see if I would enjoy riding without having to spend any money.” – Jillie Johnston, 22, Portsmouth

“I enjoyed Get On as I got a taste of what to do on two wheels. I’m now saving up to go for my full licence.” – Joanna Goodwon, 21, Flitwick

“My wife loved it! She has passed her test as a result and now rides a 950cc Yamaha.” – Paul Andrews, 51, Hereford

“It was my first taste of biking and a great way to see if you really want to pursue a life on two wheels.” – Trevor Hall, 35, Mottram in Longdendale
