Despite an unexpected rescheduling, the Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show 2018 still hit all the right notes and generated a fantastic turnout over the Easter weekend.

Originally set for early March, the organisers had instead to make the switch to the first weekend in April – but the thousands of visitors who descended on Edinburgh knew it was worth the wait.

With live stunt riders and bikes galore among the attractions at a packed Royal Highland Centre, it was 48 hours of biking heaven that will live long in the memory of all who attended.

This year’s event was a real family affair – and one of the biggest attractions was Honda’s ‘My First Licence’ experience, where riders aged between five and 11 got to show their skills. There were definitely some stars of the future on display.

Over on the mini Moto, meanwhile, an amazing course was set up with bikes reaching up to 40mph!

And stuntmen Kevin Carmichael and Terry Grant certainly had everyone entertained with their heart-stopping displays. There were gasps aplenty at some of the tricks they pulled off. Don’t try it at home!

But the main attraction, of course, was Scotland’s biggest collection of classic bikes from the last 80 years. There was something to marvel around every corner. Truly, they don’t make them like this anymore.

As proud sponsors, the Carole Nash team was out in force for one of Scotland’s biggest biking events – and we were rushed off our feet.

We gave away hundreds of our 2018 Carole Nash calendars, as well answering non-stop insurance questions and enquiries and dishing out plenty of our unique merchandise.

It was the perfect way to celebrate the Easter weekend and we’re looking forward to heading back north again soon. See you in 2019, Edinburgh – we can’t wait!
