Motorcycle Live 2019 Moto Cirque Scottoiler

Moto Cirque – Not Your Ordinary Bike Show

Like bikes? We guess that’s probably a given. Like bikes with world-class stunt riders and freestyle motocross – all blended into one colourful package? Probably, but you’ll have to find out.

Moto Cirque, debuting at MCL in 2018, is an unrivalled, unique and highly-charged performance which combines incredible skill and showbiz with dazzling special effects to captivate audiences, biker or not. It’s not just limited to motorbikes however – bike, motocross and BMX stunts are all on full display. If it’s on two wheels and can be rode with some tenacity, chances are you’ll find it here.

If the family are starting to wane a little, this might be the perfect show to take them too and get them back in the mood for bikes!

Classic Bikes – Bought to You by The National Motorcycle Musueum

Normally it’s hard enough to even get close to classic bikes, given their rarity and precious value to their owners. That changes this year, with Motorcycle Live 2019 brining an array of bikes from 1904 to 1929 in partnership with the National Motorcycle Museum – available to admire and even sit on! While I’d be scared to do so, the bikes are preserved and maintained to such a condition where getting hands-on is completely safe and encouraged!

Sometimes history can be a little dull – rev it back up by admiring the collection that the esteemed National Motorcycle Museum has produced for this year’s show. From the family-run organisation which boasts over 1000 British bikes, the largest collection in the world, you know you’ll be getting an authentic experience.

*NEW* Custom Heroes Segment

Custom Xtreme’s self-proclaimed “show-within-a-show” has returned with a defining twist this year, showcasing not only amazing bikes but the renowned craftsmen that make them possible! While not all of the heroes have been announced so far, the one that has is Steve Slight – or better known as Joeby’s Airbrush Art.

Highly endorsed by Larry Lamb of Lamb Engineering, Steve’s powers range from recreating classic race colours to custom, intricate designs such as shimmering gold leaf or strikingly realistic caricatures. We don’t think that means you can ask for your face on a bike however – try asking at your peril!

An insight into Steve, and the other heroes’ crafts will be granted in the special demonstration area, as well as a chance to meet these craftsman in person. If you want to contact Joeby’s Airbrush Art for custom work, or just get an insight into his craft click here!
