Paris opens to public
The Paris Bike Show opens to the public today and runs until October 9. Tickets are just 12 Euros for adults, six Euros for 12-18 year olds and free for under 12s.
When in Paris, take the Metro on line 12 and get off at Porte de Versailles or line 8 and get off at Balard. Your ticket gets you into the cycle show that runs alongside the event for the first four days, too. Outside events include learner tracks for mini-bikes and mini-quads for 6-11 year-olds, learner track for scooters for 12-17 year olds, learner track and demos for trials bikes for 17 and overs and a learner track and demos of quads for car licence holders. You can also try 125cc learner bikes if you are over 18 and have a car licence. And there are around 1000 used bikes for sale from dealers.
If you can’t get to Paris, take a look at the links right to catch up on the event. Most of the new bikes for 2006 are being shown in public here for the first time. Many had already been revealed by MCN (check our New bikes of 2006 link for more) but there are a few surprises too (which you’ll find via the links, right).
There’s video to download below, too – and loads more on the other Paris Show links.
And don’t forget you can enjoy a similar experience at the NEC in Birmingham very soon. Motorcyclenews.com will be broadcasting live from the NEC throughout the event.
