Motorcycle Live 2012 – ten reasons to get
countdown to the UK’s biggest and best bike show is on! Advance tickets for
Motorcycle Live 2012 are on sale now and the all-inclusive entry fee gives
access to five exhibition halls crammed with all the latest bikes, clothing and
accessories, plus non-stop entertainment from some of the biggest names in
biking, custom, touring and classic zones, seven opportunities to ride a
motorcycle AND entry into the jaw-dropping stunt display in the Ramp’d Up
Freestyle Motocross Arena**.
our guide to Motorcycle Live in the form of the top ten reasons why you should
book your tickets now!
1) All the new bikes!
the top reason for the annual pilgrimage to Birmingham for most bike fans is to
see all the new machinery for 2013 make its UK debut. All the big names in
biking are there, bringing with them a whole host of shiny new bikes for you to
feast your eyes on.
2) Meet the stars
the race season done and dusted, Motorcycle Live is the best opportunity to
meet the stars of BSB, SBK, MotoGP and more in a more relaxed environment than
a high-pressure paddock. Expect on-stage Q&As and rider signings galore…
don’t forget your autograph book.
3) A stunning stunt show
Ramp’d Up Freestyle Motocross Arena is back for 2012, and not only is it
bigger, more technical and more creative than ever before, it is completely
FREE! The world’s leading freestyle motocross riders will be whipping and
back-flipping across the ultimate indoor motorcycle playground in the most
spectacular, jaw-dropping, mind-blowing visitor attraction at Motorcycle Live.
4) Learn a new skill
Live is the perfect place to broaden your two-wheeled horizon. If you’ve never
ridden off-road before, or you want to hone your fledgling skills, the FREE Yamaha Off-road Experience is the
perfect way to get a taster, while the FREE ACU Try Trials Area in conjunction
with BUMPY aims to introduce you to the skilful trials discipline. All
equipment and expert instruction is provided so there are no excuses!
5) Take a test ride
Test Ride Zone will make a welcome return thanks to Shoei, Sidi and Spada,
and a great line up of bikes from leading manufacturers. Accompanied by
out-riders, you can get out on the open road and get a real feel for the model
of your choice – all for FREE. All safety equipment will be provided.
6) Get the kids on two wheels
are three FREE riding experiences for kids so there you can get them started
nice and early! At My First Honda Licence, kids as young as five can experience
the fun of two wheels around a specially constructed street scene and under the
watchful eye of fully-qualified instructors. The Red Bull Pro Nationals
KTM Kids’ experience offers young riders the chance to take their first
tentative steps to riding off-road, while at the Kiddimoto Fun Track children
as young as two can have a go on a balance bike.
7) Get your non-biking mates on two wheels
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.
8) Movie time
The ever-popular Nick
Sanders Cinema is back with a brand new short film depicting the charismatic
long-distance traveller’s mad journeys across deserts and faraway places, with
clips from his record-breaking Pan American journey The Incredible Ride along with his first record ride Fastest Man, a classic from 15 years
9) Non-stop entertainment
Eurosport Entertainment Zone featuring the Blackhorse Stage will occupy the
heart of Motorcycle Live. Steve Parrish and James Whitham will keep the crowd
entertained with interviews and chat shows, along with a variety of interactive
games – many of which will be new-for-2012 – and quizzes such as the
ever-popular ‘A Question Of Bikes’.
10) Zones and themes
itchy feet and plan an epic ride in the Escape Zone, ogle at the weird and
wonderful machines in the Custom Xtreme Zone and appreciate some old beauties
in the Classic Zone. There is so much eye candy you won’t know where to begin!
On Wednesday 28 November Dirt Day offers an introduction to off-road riding,
while Saturday 2 December is a celebration of the Isle of Man TT, with guest
appearances from all the big names.
