National Bikesafe Show 2016 at Rockingham. What a fantastic day, and we’ll be back next July.

Posted on


The National Bikesafe Show will return to Rockingham in 2017 (date to be confirmed), however it is likely to be the weekend of 15th/16th July so please put it in your diaries.

Held this year on Saturday 16th July at the Rockingham Motor Speedway circuit, 5,000 visitors were treated to a wide range of motorcycle activities and family entertainment.

Visitors enjoyed, on road Police assessed rides, a track experience under the watchful eye of California Superbike School and manufacturers demo rides from BMW, Honda, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha.

On site “Get On” and Yamaha were busy introducing new riders to the joys of two wheeled motoring and the Kawasaki Off Road experience offered by Lee Dunham got rave reviews from riders completing the five mile off road circuit. The Moto Gymkhana gave everyone a chance to test their machine control over a timed short circuit and demonstrations by “The Skid Bike” proved popular. As ever the Dave Coates stunt show in the Yamaha MT Tour arena was a crowd pleaser with three shows throughout the day.

In total 644 motorcycle experiences took place on the day, with over 50 Police motorcyclists on hand to deliver the on road rider assessments.

With over eighty exhibitors on view there was plenty for everybody, offering a wide variety of motorcycle related products to far away adventure holidays and more.

Blue light emergency services gave public demonstrations on the techniques used by Police to stop an offender’s car using “Boxing” tactics and the Fire service gave a demo of the extraction from crashed vehicles. Police also offered high speed, free rides around the oval circuit in marked patrol cars with a constant queue of eager thrill seekers.
