Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show
The MCN motorcycle show is always a great sign because it means that summer is coming and its nearly time to start living on the bike again. Although I ride all year round it is always nice to get rid of a half ton of extra gear and just ride.
Although not as big as the NEC show in Birmingham it is still a great event with a little bit of everything.
Bikes, motorcycle gear, adventure tours, bike racing and more.
Its great to see the event so well attended. More bikers, more fun.
As usual I spent the majority of my time at the Indian stand which was really popular. Great to see so many new faces as well. I couldn't help myself and had to have a little perve at the new Indian Challenger as well!
Steve Cain of Indian Motorcycle UK also had the privilege of leading the racers out on track with the race ready Indian FTR 1200. A beast of a bike. The racing wasn't too bad either! There was some good fund, bumps, crashes and tumbles and yours truly was there to capture it all for you.

Outside of the Indian stand there was a great mix of motorcycle displays which included Krazy Horse's MV Augusta range, KTM, BMW, CCM, Honda, Kawasaki and more.
I tried to capture as much as I could but there was way to much and wanted to avoid a feature length video. There were loads of motorcycle gear suppliers and it was great to see Infinity Motorcycles back for more. By the look of how busy they were, I think they were really pleased to be there.
For me a very big one was meeting the Sena guys who kindly offered to let me test some of their equipment to help me in my search for improved audio. Audio on the bike whilst filming has been a serious frustration for me.
Last but not least it was great to see so many Motorcycle Tour operators Attend. Its the sign of a healthy industry. Amongst which I finally got to meet my new buddy Jo Diamond (not sure if he knows it yet, but he's stuck with me now!) of Mad Hatter Motorcycle Adventures. He is a great guy and if you are ever looking out for a Motorcycle Tour Operator make sure to look him up.
