Irish Motorcycle Show Returns



After a break last year the Carole Nash Irish Motorcycle Show is back at the RDS, Dublin on the 27th February -1st March. OK, I am the first to admit that the shows performance has been questionable in the past but with any luck they have improved and this may be an attempt to raise the bar. Which is important as motorcycle sales are going up thanks to people looking to save the cents.

For full details of show Click Here to go to the official website. What we can expect at the show are BMW, Ducati, Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, KTM, Keeway, Triumph and Harley-Davidson. Also the electric scooter firm Vectrix will be exclusively unveiling two new models at the show (Click Here for MCN article).

Other then the motorcycles and scooters on show you can enjoy the Fuel girls, stunt champion Mattie Griffin, Babe of the Year with the Sunday World, the Purple Helmets display team, Speedway racing and the wall of death. Enough to keep you going?

I plan to attend on the Friday afternoon (2pm - 10pm) so expect to see me hanging around the H-D stand and hopefully taking lots of pictures. With any luck I hope Moto Guzzi are there as I am very interested in the Norge 1200. Hope to see a few of you there.

Keep the rubber side down.
