The BMF Tailend Show Rocked and Rolled! – (despite the rain)

Posted on


Despite the ever changeable British weather (yet again) the BMF Tailend was still a successful show organiser’s The Mulberry Group said. “Despite the dismal Friday evening weather plus Sunday’s rain and wind, the show atmosphere was not dampened – The Vertical Trix World Stunt competition ran all weekend (until the rain on Friday evening made it unsafe to do so), the bands on the main stage were all brilliant and on Saturday evening Alvin Stardust had the place packed”

Mulberry’s Martin Chick reported that “Once again the good old British weather conspired against us and the exhibitors and as a result the numbers were somewhat lower than we had hoped for but those who did attend were certainly buying with some very brisk sales reported by a number of traders”.

 “The Vertical Trix World stunt competition was very well received and the competitors were really amazing.

We were also very pleased to welcome Dave Hailwood, who brought his father’s (Mike Hailwood) Honda RC 181 which won him championships in ’65 ’66 and ’67” and rode it into the arena on Sunday so everyone got to see and hear a piece of real history”

The Tailend show was also the end point for Paul Newman who had undertaken a 4,000 mile trip using only A, B and costal roads and the trip was to raise money for the National Autistic Society – a fantastic feat and Paul was joined on the ride in by Alvin Stardust who is an NAS ambassador.

The BMF Tailend Show was the last opportunity for show-goers to buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win a place on Riders for Health’s incredible motorcycle adventure ride to Zambia in May 2014. For just £1, people could win the trip of a lifetime worth £4,800 and see how motorcycles are saving lives across Africa.     The winning ticket was drawn at 3.15pm on Sunday by former grand prix rider and British road race champion, Keith Huewen and the winner was Mr Colin Baines who will no doubt be preparing for next May already!

The dates for next year’s BMF Shows are: BMF May Show 16-18 May BMF Kelso Bikefest 4-6 July BMF Tailend 12-14 September
