Big Names @ the Big bmf Show!

Posted on


East of England Showground, Peterborough, 15 -16 May 2010

With less than two weeks to go until the 50th bmf show, major bike manufacturers are back at the bmf show in a big way!  

As Europe’s largest outdoor motorcycle show, the bmf show is the traditional season-opener for thousands of motorcyclists and with the official presence of BMW, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Triumph, Norton, Victory, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, plus Ducati now on board, it’s a virtual who’s who of motorcycles!

Test Rides

But that’s not all, BMW, Suzuki and Kawasaki will all have their demo test fleets on site keen to let potential customers try what they have to offer. (Customers are reminded that they must produce both parts of their driving licence to meet manufacturers terms and conditions).


There is a Win-A-Bike/Choose-A-Bike prize draw too! In a unique move, the winner can choose their bike from either a Yamaha XVS1300 ‘Midnight Star’ – Suzuki GSXR600 or a Honda CB1000R.  Tickets will be sold at just £1 each with proceeds going in aid of the bmf Foundation charity. The bikes will be on display at the show and the winner will be announced at 4 pm on the Sunday.

Top Buys

Amongst hundreds of trade stalls covering all aspects of motorcycling will be big names such as Hein Gericke, Frank Thomas, Oxford Products, George White and Biker’s World as well as the likes of M&P Direct, Powerbronze, Scott Leathers and a whole host of smaller traders offering virtually anything and everything for the keen rider.

A first at any bike show, an on-site ‘Wrap it and Despatch it’ service, run by national courier company APC, means that no longer will riders have to laden their bikes (or even take a car) because now APC can wrap and despatch goods and guarantee to deliver to home addresses within 48 hours of the show finishing!


Meanwhile daily arena entertainment over the weekend features a stunning line up of performances from Jason Smyth – The Adrenalin Tour, The Stanage International stunt display team and of course, old favourites the madness that is Moped Enduro and the thrills of Short Track racing.

Camping it Up

For those camping, evening entertainment gets a new twist with live acts and league speedway both on offer! The ‘Smacked Arse Comedy Club’, featuring adult comedy from a range of stand-up comedians, appears for the first time plus there will be live music from Stingray, Trash Monkey, Hooker and headline acts, Boot Led-Zeppelin and Killer Queen. By special arrangement, those camping at the show will also have FREE entry to the grandstand for an Elite Speedway league race between Peterborough and Wolverhampton. The racing will run from 19.30 – 21.00.

While the bmf show and camping is open to everyone, bmf members get special VIP treatment with reduced admission, a new ‘Fast Track’ entrance, a ‘members only’ area with its own refreshment facilities and discount vouchers for use at the show.

Join and Win!

In a special membership promotion, anyone joining at the show has the chance to win a Giacomo Agostini replica helmet! Their names will be entered into a FREE prize draw and one lucky person will win a signed X-Lite replica of the fifteen times world champion’s helmet.
