No license? Try a motorcycle or scooter for FREE with Get On!

If you’ve always wanted to get on a bike or scooter, but never had the chance – now’s the time! Get On, the nationwide initiative to get more people out and about on two wheels, is coming to Bristol on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th April.

Sessions last an hour, during which time riders are introduced to the gears, brakes and slow speed handling. Scooters are also available for those who want to try a ‘twist and go’.

Get On is suitable for complete beginners or people thinking of returning to biking after a break.  Instruction is by professional trainers and all protective clothing is provided.  Riders just need to wear full length jeans and sturdy shoes.

It will take place at Bristol’s multi-purpose test centre in Old Gloucester Road, Bradley Stoke, Bristol, BS16 1RS.

Booking is via the website or by calling 02476 408040. There’s also a Facebook event here – why not go with a friend?

Get On is open to anyone aged 14 or over and under 16s need to be accompanied by an adult.

Riders will also be given advice and information about where to go for further training and which licence would suit their needs.  They will also be advised as to where they can find their nearest high quality ‘accredited’ training school.

Yamaha Dark Side Tour Comes To Motorcycle Live

Yamaha Dark Side MT TourThe popular ‘Dark Side MT Tour’ will add one more stop to its 2014 schedule: next stop, Motorcycle Live at the Birmingham NEC.

The MT Tour has already given riders across the country the chance to discover their ‘Dark Side’ by trying out a Yamaha MT bike for themselves. The summer events included stunt shows, an Extreme Wheelie machine and even a new rider MT experience with both an MT-125 and restricted A2 compliant MT-07.

The appearance of the MT Tour at Motorcycle Live, running from 22-30 November, brings a new dimension to this year’s premier event.

The giant MT Tour truck will take centre stage, showcasing a collection of MT clothing and accessories. An array of accessorised MT Tour bikes will also be on display along with the Dave Coates MT-09 stunt bike, which comes straight to the event from its last show.

The most popular attraction, however, is sure to be the fleet of MT-09, MT-09 Street Rally and MT-07 demo bikes. The collection will be available for riders to enjoy on an escorted test ride. Following the huge number of awards the MT range has received this year, these demo bikes promise to be a popular addition to the Motorcycle Live line-up.

Bookings for the test rides can only be made on the MT Tour truck on the day. Avoid missing out: head straight to the Yamaha stand on arrival to secure your place.MT Tour 1

Details of the additional MT Tour dates and requirements for test rides are available at the Yamaha MT Tour page.
