Motorcycle Live will open its doors from December 4-12 this year, still being the UK’s biggest bike show, also welcoming back the much-loved Classic and Custom features to delight and wow show-goers across the nine days.

For classic enthusiasts, The National Motorcycle Museum presents its Classic Motorcycle Feature where the focus will be on TT winning bikes from 1903 through to more recent machines, which have tackled the iconic 37.75-mile Mountain Circuit.

Whilst visitors to the Classic feature reminisce about the good old days, they can also take a step back in time sitting on unique bikes from yesteryear, with props and photo opportunities, and visitors of all ages can get involved. Motorcycle Live 2021 at the NEC, Birmingham, opens its doors at 9am on Saturday, December 4.

About the Author

Bertie Simmonds

As a child Bertie (well, Robert back then… blame his sister for the nickname) was exposed to motorcycles thanks to his uncles. They would show up at his house with a lovely lady as pillion throughout the 1970s and 1980s. After a naughty time on field bikes (it’s what we did back then) Bertie passed his test in the early 1990s and became a reporter for MCN in 1995, moving to the sports desk and covering World Superbikes in 1996. With a change to Bike Magazine in 1997, he stayed until 2000 as news, features and road test editor. Moving into PR with Cosworth, Bert was bored with cars and returned to bikes in 2001 with Two Wheels Only, becoming editor in 2002 and leaving to be freelance at the end of 2004. With almost a decade freelancing, Bertie joined Mortons in 2013 and became editor of Classic Motorcycle Mechanics, a post he’s desperately clung to, to this day. And no, he’s never had a pretty girl on the back of his bike.
