Having very much enjoyed the car show last summer, I was pleased to see there was a Motorcycle show at the ExCeL Centre this January. Myself and a couple of collegues from work got ourselves some tickets and met up to have a look around.
It wasn’t quite on the same scale as the car show, but then I guess there are less bike manufacturers to exhibit that car companies. This show took only the North side of the centre apart from the live action show which took place in the south section.
It was great to be able to have a sit on all the new bikes to see how they felt. I personally felt right at home on the Honda Varadero 1000cc, the big brother of the 125 bike I learnt on. It seemed large enough for my body to fit on it nicely.
Before heading home I got myself a nice new Shoei helmet in matt black, with a fantastic Pinlock system to stop the visor fogging up.
A slightly hairy moment on the way home as I accelerated off a roundabout and the back wheel slid out on some dirt, but there was some nice weather for a nice ride home.
