Life’s Better on two wheels
If you’re thinking of getting on two wheels for the first time then head to Hall 4. Why? Well this is where you can experience for the first time life on two wheels in a specially constructed area with expert tuition on either a 125cc scooter or motorcycle and all FOR FREE courtesy of the industry’s Get On Campaign!
Get On, backed by the major manufacturers, encourages non riders to find out for themselves all the benefits of riding by offering a free taster session at approved training centres around the country – including Motorcycle Live.
Head to the booking desk in Hall 4 to get yourself booked on one of the many slots available – places are limited however so be quick. The only requirements are that you are over the age of 16 and that you have consumed no alcohol (participants will be breathalysed). If you know which day you’re visiting you can also book your place in advance of the show by visiting the Get On site.
Your Free Ride – what to expect?
An experienced instructor will look after you from start to finish – giving you a safety briefing before kitting you out with a helmet and all the essential gear to really enjoy your experience.
The practical session will last about 20 minutes, and will take place inside the confines of Hall 4, protecting all participants against the winter weather. Visitors over the age of 16 will be introduced to the controls and learn to get rolling and stop safely, controlling the motorbike or scooter at low speeds, and if time and ability allows practice changing gear and riding around a simple course.
At the end your instructor will give you feedback about your riding and you’ll get the chance to ask questions about next steps, further training or pretty much anything else you want to know.
What’s the catch? There isn’t one! We know that once you’ve tried it, many of you will fall in love with biking and want to take it further. And if you don’t, that’s fine too.
If you don’t try it though how will you ever know?
