Still worth it. Book your flights early and its a great day out, and by then, if brexit happens, tinned food will be accepted as legal tender..

Re: Motorcycle Live 2019

I posted about here 2 weeks ago.
And it wasn't a whinging post either
Reason I posted it was to make people aware of it.....that it ain't free this year.

Some people could be bringing their kids or extended family and are unaware of the price this year,or have a strict budget to stick to.......so a heads up is allways nice to have.

I've test drove bikes every year for the last 5 years. You need to pre register with them.

Re: Motorcycle Live 2019

Email [email protected] - add that you want to register for test drives and include a photo of the front and back of your license. Has worked every year for me so far.

PS: You will need to be there the very second the doors open and run to register otherwise its going to be fully booked up. We get the 6am flight to make sure we're early enough

Re: Motorcycle Live 2019

can not test drive this year was just over there this weekend, all events were for only UK licence holders which was a bit shite. test driving the 1290 2 years ago made the whole event. plus now £10 in rather than free.

Re: Motorcycle Live 2019

Nope, tenner is fine, normal price for locals is twenty five pounds so we are definitely getting a bargain, pay well for the RDS wouldnt we? And i dont see our shower of cunts giving anyone a discount.
Three halls full of bikes and associated bits and bobs is a good day out in my book, some nice ladys around too, but not as good as they used to be, more covered up these days, deffo a retrograde step imo.

Go to this every second year and we've been getting in for nothing for years so next time I'll have no problem paying a tenner well worth it.

There's a motorsport show in the RDS this weekend and the price of a day ticket is Ä55 and Ä25 for children so rip off Ireland still alive and well

The same lads who moan about a tenner, think nothing of dropping 300quid extra for what is effectively a special edition vinyl sticker to cover a standard lid.
