Motorcycle Live Highlights

Three days are already complete in 2011 Motorcycle Live at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, and as always there’s much action present for all types of motorcyclists.

On Sunday at the event, World Superbike riders Leon Haslam and Jonathan Rea were joined by Isle of Man TT star Guy Martin, and MotoGP’s Cal Crutchlow.

While Martin signed autographs and greeted attendants at the NEC, Rea made many dreams come true by helping with the “My First Honda License,” which gives youngsters some lessons on riding.

Motorcycle Live reports that Jonathan Rea Helps Out in Riders for Health AuctionAt 12.30, the crowds gathered at the Blackhorse Stage for the chance to get hold of some of the one-of-a-kind racing memorabilia on offer in the Riders for Health Auction supported by Arai. This year’s lots included a VIP trip to the Day of Champions at the 2012 Silverstone MotoGP and a set of Alvaro Bautista’s REV’IT leathers. The auction raised over £4,000 for the Riders for Health charity.

On Monday, the latest models from various manufacturers were available in the “Test Ride Zone” supported by Shoew, Sidi and Spada. Motorcycle Live says wannabe off-road riders can sample life on the dirt in the Yamaha Off-Road Experience, while kids are catered for with My First Honda Licence and the Suzuki Off-Road Experience.

For the inexperienced motorcyclists, there was an industry-backed “Get On” campaign, which offered free 20-minutes sessions to riders over the age of 18. After day 3, Motorcycle Live reports hundreds of people had already taking advantage of the lessons.

Motorcycle live reports: “After all that exertion, (Monday’s) visitors took the chance to rest their feet and enjoy the entertainment on the Blackhorse Stage, which included a bumper edition of Fast Bikes Question of Bikes with double World Superbike champion Troy Corser, British Superbike champion Tommy Hill, BSB contender Josh Brookes, BBC commentator Matt Roberts, SBK star Sylvain Guintoli, World Supersport riders Sam Lowes and Gino Rea and eight-times world champion Phil Read.”

Motorcycle Live at the NEC continues through November 27.
