MCN Bike Show

Have been to many Bike shows over the last 30 years of my biking life and am now wondering if it is worth going to future shows. This year was compressed into one arena with a dwindling selection of bikes to see in the "flesh" from the manufacturers. No Suzuki too! However, I did enjoy the Revolution show, though had to wait until the final performance to be able to get into a position at the front to watch it. (Only 5'5"tall)

ZZZZnnnooooze Fest

It was cramped, boring and no MCN Girls even... (not that this is the main thing, but why not?) It was as if you were at the George White closing sale a week late... Seriously, biggest waste of time and money for me so far for 2013. To be honest, the wedding exhibition next door looked more exciting!

What a load of Rubbish!!

Really dissapointed - came up from Hampshire for this and can honestly say I spent more time travelling than in the show as it was so boring! MCN blurb said Aprilia will have the new Caponord there - no they didnt, they had about 4 or 5 bikes and one of them was not the Caponord I went to see. MCN blurb also said come and see the Suzuki Concept VStrom 1000 - would love to only Suzuki not even there!! Rest of the dealers stands where very small and not much there to look at.

 

Too many side stalls selling tat - one previous poster got it right when they said like closing down at George Whites only a week late.

 

Not a patch on the Birmingham NEC show which is cheaper and easier to get to - WONT be going again - Poor Show MCN!!

A very Poor show

Sadly I have to agree with most of the comments on here.

This years show was a very poor effort, wish I had saved my money and gone to the NEC.

Arrived at 10am, and had seen everything worth looking at by 12.

Loads of empty space where shops / stall hadn't sold.

Half the arena taken up with the cheap stunt show which didn't involve any stunts!

I won't be going again anytime soon, thats if there is a London Bike show next year!

POOR SHOW MCN

Disappointing & do they actually want to sell bikes?

I went mainly to look for a mid range adventure bike. Suzuki weren't there, Kawasaki didn't have the Versys, BMW and Triumph had good stands, took my details and one week on i've heard nothing apart from an emailed brochure from Triumph as they didn't have any at the show. The worst had to be Honda though, asked a guy behind the counter about the difference between the crosstourer and crossrunner and he said "i'm not technical mate ask that bloke over there"!!

Never again

Show was lame, No suzuki and the place felt half arsed, odd comment about about the Versys, was there sat on it

As for the stunt show in the middle - was not even worth watching

Last time I will waste my money going there - Stick with the NEC, which is still good

Quite a few of us used to go to the sporting & racing  shows that  were on through the 70s  in London , but  since they finished we haven"t  ventured  there again . I was never that keen on the N.E.C. and  shows  anywhere near us are few and  far between . I used to go to a couple of specialist  shows in Doncaster and  Nottingham ,which are not far away  but their prices [for a pensioner] have now gone silly . They keep trying different shows north  of  the Midlands but they only last  for a year or two , I think they are trying to revive Manchester , which used to be great  ,we will have to wait and see ? . Most good  ones are open-air and are reliant on the weather  , which ,lets face it  has not been too good in recent times .
