Test Rides To Stunt Rides - It's All About Bikes At The BMF Show! BMF show 14-15 May, East of England Show Ground, Peterborough.
With better weather on its way and the BMF Show, Europe's largest outdoor motorcycle show, now just five weeks away, from test rides to the Evel Knievel Road Show, it's all going to be happening at the BMF Show!
A firm fixture in the show calendar for enthusiasts and traders alike, the BMF Show will see not only a full range of bikes, but test rides being offered from Honda, Harley-Davidson and Suzuki plus, in their first ever attendance, Ducati.
Traders big and small all want to be at the BMF Show and this year is no exception with trade stands selling faster than last year! Other bike manufactures already signed up include BMW, Kawasaki and Reiju (who will be unveiling their new RS3 125 LC), with many others awaiting confirmation. Meanwhile representing Royal Enfield and Moto Guzzi will be local dealers Haywards.
The stunning Evel Knievel Road Show, designed as a tribute to the daddy of all stunt riders will have Evel's stunt bikes, including the rocket bike X-2 Sky Cycle from the Snake River Canyon jump on display, plus his famous riding gear and much personal memorabilia.
For a modern day stunt show, and particularly for those camping, the stunning Vertical Trix Stunt Show will put on the style each evening as well as laying on additional demonstrations during the day, while for those wanting to try their hand at beating their mates at wheelies (without falling off!), Vertical Trix will also have their Head to Head wheelie machine on hand.
Not to be outdone though, Bennetts Insurance will have their infamous 'Bucking Bike' on their stand to sort the men from the boys.
Away from the hardware and on to the software, amongst the big names in clothing and accessories already signed up are Hein Gericke, J&S, Oxford Products, Bikerswear, Beowulf and many more.
The ever popular arena attractions include hardy annuals the Moped Enduro and back by popular demand, Vintage Speedway, but new for this year and making a welcome return after a long absence, is the drifting spectacular that is 1000cc sidecar racing!
But that's not all, something completely different in the horse power stakes will be a Wild West Show using four horses per time in a fantastic display of horsemanship not often seen this side of the Atlantic, and if that wasn't enough, the extreme riding show teams up horses and riders with mountain board riders towed behind them!
For families there will be a fun fair and side show attractions and the extra good news is that accompanied children (16 or under) go FREE!
