The 2012 Manchester Motorcycle Show has lined up some amazing live action for visitors to enjoy and be amazed by when it returns to Manchester Central Convention Complex (formerly the GMEX) on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th January.

This year’s show is much more than just watching stunt shows, with the show getting interactive in 2012 – including a chance for visitors to learn how to pull the perfect wheelie.

Stunt team Vertical Trix will be performing three times each day with their breath taking and gravity defying show. The four-strong team perform on Kawasaki 636 bikes, spinning and standing on them as well as balancing a Legend racing car on two wheels.

Once the guys have performed, it’s the visitors turn as Vertical Trix has a twin wheelie machine designed to teach how to pull the perfect wheelie. For just £10, enthusiasts can learn this trick in a completely safe environment. What’s even better is that they can then go head-to-head (or wheel-to-wheel) with their friends as the wheelie machine allows two stunt riders at once. Vertical Trix have also launched a new stunt academy for potential stunt riders and drivers.

Visitors to the show will also find all of the major manufacturers, a line-up of well-known riders as well as an extensive retail village selling every part and spare imaginable, clothing, helmets and more.

Adult ticket prices are £10 when booking in advance, £15 on the day. Children under 15 years enter for free when accompanied by a paying adult. The show is open from 10am each day and closes at 5pm. To book tickets and for the latest updates, visit
