Carole Nash Motorcycle Live Day 6 | Video

UK Motorcycle Show

On Thursday, Carole Nash Motorcycle Live in The NEC, Birmingham, hit the half way point.

In this video of Day 6 at Motorcycle Live from the official Carole Nash YouTube channel, the organizers talk about the planning that goes into one of the most spectacular two-wheel events in the UK.

First, it’s unbelievable that such a massive event is put together by just four people…yes, four people. The organizers say it takes a full week to build everything for Carole Nash Motorcycle Live in The NEC, and just 16 hours to take it all down.

This year much prep went into the motorcycle ride experience; attendees had six different opportunities to ride motorcycles at the show.

This year’s Carole Nash Motorcycle Live offers rides, inside, outside, on road and off road.

The industry-backed Get On campaign will see over 1,000 first-time riders experience a free taster session, while My First Honda License will give over 1,000 children the chance to have their first go on two-wheels.

The TM+X and DBR Off-Road Zone – which includes the Suzuki Off-Road Experience for kids and the Yamaha Off-Road Experience for adults – has been created using over 2,200 tonnes of dirt, allowing almost 1,000 people old and young will experience their first off-road motorcycle ride.

The entire exhibition is covered by 40 miles of carpet laid end-to-end and takes a full week to build and construct yet only 16 hours to completely remove.

Carole Nash Motorcycle Live runs until Dec. 5, 2010. Tickets are £17 ($26) for adults, £10 ($16) for Seniors, £5 ($8) for children aged 11-16 and kids under 10 go free. All riding experiences are free. The Ramp’d Up Freestyle Motocross Arena is £5 ($8) per adult and £2.50 ($4) for children 5-16.
