Thumbs up Birmingham MOTORCYCLE LIVE - NEC 17-25TH MOVEMBER

free entrance for Irish again this year

( and yes, i checked )


If you fly over from Ireland , hold a valid IE passport and provide a valid plane ticket / boarding card, access to the show is free. It cannot be much simpler.

Some say towards the end of the week when vendors want rid of any stock they have but its also busier on the weekends. Its all about haggling with them anyway. No matter what they you are there.

I've been to the show loads of times and really find their stock the same as online prices. I normally focus on looking at the bikes.

Prefer not to have to carry loads of stuff back on the flight

Noticed the leathers and boots(which I bought there in 2009) are getting a bit weathered. Back then Frank Thomas still existed.
Wonder will herself give me a day off to go?

I've been to this four times now and got stung the first I went over by paying in so It's been great since then just rocking up with your proof of flights etc. to get your free pass

Going again this year always go on a Monday less busy than weekends dirt cheap flights and a great day off work you can't go wrong

Depends how long you want to spend at each exhibitor and if you want to spend a bit of time looking at the retail stands. I've had a few visits where its easy to cover it in the day and then I've had years when I wished I did a second day. Make a list of what you really want to see and get that done first. Is it your first visit sidegrinder?
