SCOTLAND’S BIGGEST AND BEST MOTORCYCLE SHOW IS BACK

Scotland’s biggest and best motorcycle show returns to Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre this March with all the latest models, major manufacturers, and breathe taking live action. The Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show, held on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th March, is a haven for anyone with a passion for motorcycles.

Major bike manufacturers will showcase their new models for 2014. Plus there will be exclusive offers from the dealers on new and 2013 motorbikes. Bag a bargain in the Bike Jumble and browse the Retail Village where a host of traders will be able to fit you out with new leathers, boots or helmet. If you want to improve your bike’s appearance there’s a wide array of suppliers to help make your bike stand out from the crowd.

Take a ride down memory lane in the Classic Bike magazine hall where you can find Scotland’s biggest collection of classic motorcycles spanning over 80 years. The Classic Bike team will be on hand throughout the weekend – pop along to their stand for a chat.

Centre stage in the Classic Bike hall will be a dedicated display celebrating the racing heritage of Joe Potts and Bob McIntyre. The Joe Potts Garage Collection will not only include various bikes but also trophies, photographs and full back catalogue of memorabilia.

For the first time ever Practical Sportsbikes magazine will also be exhibiting at the event and will be on hand for advice and tips on how to get the best out of your pride and joy.

The Knockhill Stage will be jam packed with entertainment all weekend including competitions, celebrity rider interviews and much more. VIP Guests include Fast Freddie Spencer, John McGuinness, Stuart Easton & Niall Mackenzie

There will be an impressive range of customised motorbikes from Clydebank-based House of Custom, specialists in customising Harley Davidson Sportsters. With their award-winning ‘hot rod’ styling, the bikes receive a great customised paint finish, slammed suspension, drag handlebars, upgraded lights, lots of stainless steel and custom seat which gives a lower riding position and improved handling.

Thrill seekers can enjoy stunt shows from Broke FMX as well as Scotland’s very own Kevin Carmichael.

Novices and experts alike can take advantage of Mick Extances’ Kawasaki Trials Experience whilst younger show visitors will be able to get their first taste of riding and experience just what it’s like to get on a Honda motorcycle with Honda’s unique ‘My First Licence’.

Show is open 9am until 5pm each day. Adult ticket prices start from just £12 when booked in advance or £16 on the door. Senior citizen tickets are £9 in advance or £12 on the door. Kids under 15 go free when accompanied by a paying adult. All tickets are subject to a service charge. Parking is £5 per car, motorcycles are free and secure helmet storage is available.
