The first bike show of 2005 has been announced. The National Motorcycle Show will take place at GMex, in Manchester, from January 7th to 9th 2005.

There will be a large classic and performance bikes display, plus a wide range of trade stands. Demonstrations will be provided, featuring stunt rider Sonnie Furguson, impresario Russ Swift, and the Xtreme Trials Display Team.

New for 2005 is a trials event called Head2Head, billed as a crowd-pleasing gladiatorial contest.

The National Motorcycle Show opening times are: 11:30am to 5:30pm on Friday and 10:00am to 5:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Advance tickets cost £8.50 for adults and £4.50 for children and OAPs.
