The October 2015 issue of Motorcycle Trader – the serious business title for motorcycle trade and industry owner/operators – is landing from today.

This month; Trader speaks to a number of companies that are reaping the rewards of exporting their products overseas and how best to go about it. New-to-the-UK Mooof, is a leading scooter and small-capacity supplier in the Benelux countries, Trader caught up with UK brand manager Henry Maplethorpe to find out more. Over on the Shows front it is almost time for some dirty business with the International Dirt Bike Show and the new issue of Trader gives a taster of what to expect. The rest of the Mortons’ Shows portfolio is featured too, giving the trade the lowdown on how to benefit and get involved.

Trader has a full complement of columnists this month; Williams ponders the lack of motorcycle media targeting the younger wannabe riders and in his End User piece questions the cost of all-weather riding wear. Sticky tells a tale of being stranded in the back end of beyond, yet still manages to get mail-order. China expert Sean Kerr laments the apparent reluctance of Chinese motorcycle manufacturers to stand proud; and the MCIA’s Stevie Muir urges the trade to take advantage of its new data service.

Elsewhere in the October edition of Motorcycle Trader, you’ll find pages stacked out with news, new products, business news, latest new-model registration statistics and, of course, the regularly updated A to Z Directory of motorcycle related businesses.
