Great Day Out for Motorcyclist

If you are looking for a great day out this weekend the Scottish Motorcycle Show is a must for anyone with a passion for motorcycles. The show takes place at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh, on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th March 2013.

The show will be action packed and give you the chance to check out the newest 2013 models from major bike manufacturers including Triumph, Kawasaki, MV Agusta, KTM, Ducati, Suzuki, Victory, Honda, Yamaha and Harley Davidson. You can also take a walk through the past at the Classic Bike magazine Classics Pavilion  where you will find Scotland’s largest collection of classic bikes dating back more than 80 years. House of Custom will be hosting the Custom Zone showcasing Scotland’s finest custom and modified bikes to provide you with ideas to keep you ahead of the crowd. There will also be opportunities to take in a stunt show from high octane stunt groups Broke FMX, Wall of Death and Kevin Carmichael as well as an exhilarating precision show by Inch Perfect Trials. 

For the bargain hunters there will be a Bike Jumble and Retail Village where a large selection of traders will kit you out with a huge selection of leathers, boots and helmets as well as the best deals on custom gear for your bike. Plus there will be entertainment all weekend on the Knockhill Stage as well as appearances from top biking celebrities. With all this and lots more there will be something for all bikers ensuring a fantastic weekend.

Although it may seem slightly out of place to discuss personal injury and potential motorcycle accidents in the same breath as Scotland’s biggest and best motorcycle show, having been involved with the motorcycle scene in Scotland for a number of years, the dedicated motorcycle law team at Digby Brown are sadly aware of the reality that riders on 2 wheels are more likely to be involved in an accident than their 4 wheeled counterparts. Our team are also aware of the in-built prejudice against bikers, as it is more often than not assumed that the blame for the accident will rest with them, rather than a looking at the facts of each case as would be the approach in a car on car collision (see our earlier blog).

We're delighted to be able to continue our long running support of Kirkcaldy and District Motor Club. Visit their stand in the Lowland Hall for information on all their activities this year, including Kirkcaldy Sand Races on 18th May.

If you are attending the Scottish Motorcycle show this weekend take a look around, enjoy your great day out, take the time to chat with the other bikers, share stories of great runs and check out the trade stands too – if you read last week’s blog and are now thinking of investing in a new helmet or set of leathers, there should be plenty to take your fancy!
