I went yesterday (Monday 6th)

Lots of bike stands selling electric bikes, Piaggio/Vespa/Aprilla/Guzzi not there.

The area selling cheap clothing is a lot smaller and not so many deals, but still some if you search them out.

Nice day out, we started at 10, went to every stall and back to those we wanted to visit again and were finished by 2.00, didn't buy anything :-(

Just nice to be out looking and sitting on bikes again, especially some of the exotic stuff, like Ariel.

New Norton was there as were BSA!
Roadsters are me!

I'd brave the dreaded virus if I could gaze upon the new Moto Guzzi Mandello! I could/would never afford it, but it just might be the MG that finally won me over after several disappointments with the marque. Can't say the same about new Nortons and BSAs, which presumably are just badged Chinese models. I do miss the NEC show though: I always felt like it was like a cathedral of biking. :thumbsup:

Ad a good day up at NEC bike show . Know it was a Tuesday , but very quiet , which was good as could see everything ect . Lot's of electric bikes , like 'sidrat' mentioned , which to be honest , i've got no interest in at all.
Noticed the bike manufactures that were there had pretty much big area's , but very little bikes .
I'm a big Ducati fan / owner & especially likes the Panigale V2 Bayliss .
Prob's be back next year if at all possible :thumbsup:

Yeah, same here. It one of the few new bikes that I would be seriously interested in. I see there are a couple more new 'sport tourers' being released Suzukis GSX-S1000 GT & Honda's NT1000.

So perhaps we have passed peak Adventure...
Nortons and BSAs
The former is still a quality product made in the UK and both are owned by Indian concerns.
especially some of the exotic stuff, like Ariel.
My absolute fave rave dream bike - especially one with that fancy front end.
