March is an exciting time for bike enthusiasts, as there are lots of events coming up. As one of the UK’s leading bike insurance brokers, we believe it’s important to have our finger on the pulse when it comes to what’s going on in the motorcycling world. Motorbike shows are a wonderful way for like-minded people to meet up and share their passion. Carole Nash has appeared at two events so far: The Carole Nash Irish Motorbike & Scooter Show and The Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show. We’ll also be appearing at The Manchester Bike Show later in the month.
The Manchester Bike Show, 25th-26th March
The Manchester Bike Show is one of the biggest biking events of the year, with over 100 exhibitors showcasing the best models. The event takes place at Event City, which is close to the Trafford Centre. All of the big manufacturers will be in attendance, from Harley-Davidson, to Kawasaki. Visitors can check out all of the exhibits and discover a range of classic bikes.
An exciting act to look out for is Steve ‘Stunt Man’ Colley, who was a big hit at the first Manchester Bike Show in 2012.
Our team had a great time at last year’s show, and we’re looking forward to joining in with the festivities again.
The Carole Nash Irish Motorbike & Scooter Show 2017, 3rd-5th March
Held at the start of March at the Royal Dublin Society in Ireland, the Motorbike and Scooter Show featured 120 exhibitors. One of the highlights was the International Freestyle Riding competition, where riders from all over the world competed for a €2500 prize, so there was plenty of action. Another high point was be Irish qualifier of the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building. The winner will now represent Ireland in the AMD World Championship in Germany.
As proud sponsors of the event, we offered a €10 challenge and gave customers an insurance quote on the spot. Anyone who beat it, was sent €10. Our team were also handing out goodie bags.
The Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show, 11th-12th March
Edinburgh came alive with the sound of high-powered motorcycles at the Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show. Held at the Royal Highland Centre, the event featured all the latest bikes from manufacturers like Kawasaki, Suzuki, Honda, Ducati and Yamaha. Extreme motorcycle stunt rider Kevin Carmichael delighted everyone in attendance with a number of daring tricks.
Away from the action, the show had Scotland’s largest collection of classic bikes in the Classic Bike Hall. Visitors also had the opportunity to listen to vintage models roar in the Classic Bike Fire Up Paddock.
During the event, our team were on hand to give out goodie bags with a free 2017 calendar inside.
