It's Easter Weekend ahead of us and, with the weather seemingly reverting back to proper spring weather instead of the wintery glitch that hit the north of the country at the start of this week, many of you will be looking for somewhere bike-orientated to go.
While there's British Superbikes at Brands Hatch, and the first round of ACU drag racing at Santa Pod, they will be susceptible to spring showers, and there will be other rounds later in the year... However, the Manchester Motorcycle Show at the G-Mex in (surprise, surprise) Manchester is predominantly indoors so you have cover from any potential precipitation, yet have the opportunity to bask in any spring sunshine while watching the outdoor stuntshow and bike training. And, if you are a BSB fan you'll be able to watch qualifying from Brands Hatch on Sunday and, if you're one of those twisted weirdos with a fascination with balls and men in shorts, the Manchester United v Chelsea game will be aired on the Saturday.
Outside, the Vertical Trix stunt team will be abusing their Kawasaki ZX-6R stunt bikes, and displaying the sort of talents seen in the booming UK stunt scene, and they're also bringing along their wheelie machine - available for all to try!
Also inside will be the Steve Colley trials stunt show, plus all the usual trade, clothing, tool, merchandise and club stands. Naturally, the Streetfighters stand will also be in attendance, with a variety of modified machinery to drool over, including the bike that was given a sneak preview in the new issue (on sale in newsagents today, or at the show!)in the Next Month piece...
