May 20 2014.

For the first time in five years the weather was kind to the BMF Show and as a result thousands flocked to enjoy the weekend.

From early Friday afternoon campers arrived to make the best of the fine weather and evening entertainment, and they weren’t disappointed with many claiming that it was the best Friday night for years.

Show organiser The Mulberry Group received very positive feed-back from exhibitors including KTM, exhibiting for the first time and running demo rides, along with Kawasaki, Honda and Suzuki. Harley Davidson, Victory & Indian, WK Bikes and Boom Trikes all reported good interest.

Visitors arrived early on Saturday morning with the bike park almost full by early afternoon.

There was a great ‘party’ atmosphere throughout the weekend and appearances by Carl Fogarty, Henry Cole and Don Powell (founder member of 70’s super group SLADE) added to it.

The Adventure & Overland area was crowded throughout the weekend with people listening to presentations from Sam Manicom, Graham Hoskins, Nick Plum (Touratech), Alex Jackson (Kaapstad), Jacqui Furneaux, Dom Giles, Ed March and Graham Field who was launching his new book Ureka.

The Best in Show competition received the most number of entries for the past nine years and the Cavalcade of clubs attracted over 135 bikes of all shapes and sizes!

Mulberry’s MD Martin Chick said; “The weather, coupled with manufacturers and the new show areas, clearly boosted attendance which was up by just over three per cent giving us 40,889 on site over the weekend. The show was a great success and gives us a platform to keep building from to increase the numbers further and get more manufacturers to return next year.”
