I agree, the show's way too expensive. I 'd pay £15 tops to walk around what's essentially a glorified show room. Was intending to go with the other half but at £40-£50 for the tickets alone, it's an expensive day out.

Surely if the tickets were cheaper there would be more through the door? Seems like a greedy asking price.

Should be free

I think the shows should be free entry. Its our custom they want at the end of the day, and besides you never had to pay to walk around George Whites lol. Also is it realy news to MCN that Triumph would display there latest bikes at a bike show?

Seen 'em!

If you had gone to the bike show at Manchester last week, you would have seen these new Triumphs on the Philip Youles stand. And they weren't on fixed stands, just on the side stand which was a much better way of judging how they feel and how high the seat is. Other than that, I paid £15 to get into that show which was no more than an oversize showroom. Yes, I could have bought advance tickets and saved some money but it was a last minute decision to go. Haven't been for a few years and its no better so I won't be going again for some considerable time until I can tell its improved a lot. The hot turkey sandwiches in the catering area were bloody excellent though!

Manchester bike show 18th

We need to make the Manchester bike show an event worth having.  Hopefully then we will get the same attractions as the Excell show and save us the trail and expense of overnight stay in London.  Attend the Manchester show and lets make it a big event.  Alright, it would be nice if it was free, but a tenner aint too bad is it?  I know it is a bit like paying to get in at the local bike showroom but surely it is worth it just to get "hands on" with the bikes all in one place.
