Yep, it’s that time of the year again – this weekend (the 16th and 17th of September) is the NZ Motorcycle Show, sponsored by Ride Forever for 2017, at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane, Auckland.
Pretty much all the big brands will be there with all of their new machines, as well as all the classic and custom bikes on display, it’s set to be the biggest show yet! I’ve been to the last three years shows, and they always impress.
This year, I’ve entered my recently finished project bike into the show, recently featured right here on Empire Motoring, so you can come and see it in person and let me know what you think… (be nice though!)
This year the organisers have gotten their hands on a Royal Enfield 350 to give away, which is pretty cool – everyone that visits the show can register to win it, as well as a custom Indian Scout being auctioned on Trade Me for $1 reserve right now!
The event hosts free motorcycle parking for visitors, last year there were over 1200 bikes parked outside over the lunch hour, it was like another whole bike show on it’s own. This year promises to be even bigger, with 100,000 square feet for the show floor, up from 80,000 square feet last year.
The team from Empire will be floating around as well, feel free to introduce yourself if you spot us. We’ll be doing a full post-show report, and maybe even a spot in a future webisode, so if you can’t make it you’ll still get an insight into what it’s all about.
Tickets are $20 for Adults, Kids (5-13) are only $5, Under 5s are free, and a Family pass (2 Adults, 2 Kids) will only set you back $40. For a great day out, you can’t go wrong!
Look forward to seeing you there!
