Show organiser Bike Shows Europe has announced a new exhibition for May, next year. The Midlands Big Bike Show is due to be over May 7th and 8th 2005, at the Stoneleigh Park Exhibition Centre in Coventry.

It is hoped more than 10,000 people will attend the show which is deliberately scheduled for the time of year when many owners get their bikes back on the road after the winter break.

Bike Shows Europe is also responsible for the South West Bike Show in Exeter and the National Motorcycle Show at Manchester's G-Mex Centre.

There are 130 stands available for the first Midlands Big Bike Show.
