UK Motorcycle Show
On Monday, the third day of the famed Carole Nash Motorcycle Live opened to many visitors eager to see the latest in machinery, gear and celebrities throughout the industry.
At the show in the NEC, Birmingham, many experienced riders participated in the Yamaha Off Road Experience, while two-wheel novices were zipping around the Get On Arena and kids got their first taste of bikes at My First Honda License.
Singer Simon Webbe, classical boyband Blake and TV presenter Sarah Cawood made a special appearance in the Get On Arena, where novice riders over 16 can try a free taster session on a scooter or motorcycle in complete privacy and safety.
Simon and the boys from Blake are now fully-fledged bikers after completing their motorcycle tests with the industry-backed Get On campaign, while Sarah is just starting out.
