The Manchester Bike Show is back again for the eighth year running. It hosts 18,000 sqm of biker goodness, all under one roof. This year, the event looks even bigger and better than before. If this is your first time attending, here’s our list of 10 things you can expect to see when you visit the Manchester Bike Show.
1. The Biker retail village
The retail village is the perfect opportunity for bikers to grab a bargain on brand new helmets, leathers and motorcycle accessories. With more than 100 motorcycle shops to pick from, it’s guaranteed you’ll find the right gear for your machine. With hundreds of shops at your fingertips, it’s easy to see why the Bike show is becoming a firm favourite on every biker’s calendar.
2. Motorcycle competitions
We all love a great competition, especially when you’re in for a chance to win things such as a new motorcycle helmet, or even a brand new motorcycle. It’s not uncommon to see the vast majority of stalls and companies at the show to be hosting their give-a-ways and contests. Make sure you check out the exhibitor list online to see which companies will be attending. This year, if you fancy winning a Rossi Replica Helmet, you can visit stand 128, and you could win an AGV K3 SV! You could also win 1 of 10 KGB battery chargers that are up for grabs.
3. Biking Celebrities
The Manchester Bike show is a fantastic opportunity to meet some of the big stars in the biking world. For example, this year, four times Superbike World Champion, Carl Fogarty will be joining CCM Motorcycles from 10.00 – 15.00. So make sure you pop over to visit him at their stand. You also have the chance to meet Olympic gold medal winner Jason Kenny CBE. You can find him on the Kawasaki Bolton Motorcycles stand.
4. Great food and drink
The Manchester Bike Show has a fantastic range of food and beverages available on site. With multiple different stalls, vans and coffee shops, you’re bound to find a decent bacon barm and a hot latte. Why not caffeine up and leisurely enjoy all the different stalls available? Or if you’ve travelled in by public transport, why not enjoy a cheeky tipple at one of the onsite bars.
5. Motorcycle Stunt Show
Every year the show wows us with their fantastic stunt shows. The show is entirely free to watch and can be found on the far side of the hall. It’s certainly worth seeing, especially if you’re a fan of trials bikes.
6. Live Music and bands
Who doesn’t love a bit of Rock ‘n Roll? This year, the show will feature the Delray Rockets and Howlin Mat who are a self-proclaimed ‘Oz’ band. They’re a neo-Rockabilly with an 80’s vibe. They create an energetic, hard-hitting ‘in your face’ sound,
Of course, your visit to the bike show wouldn’t be complete without popping over to visit the SorryMate stand. Feel free to pop over and have a chat with the team about any issues you may be facing
