Some Museum Friends Enjoying Riding Activities During 2016One of the most important aspects of the National Motorcycle Museum Friends Scheme is giving its members the chance to take part in some unique activities that just wouldn’t be possible otherwise. Some of this unique content includes our “Classic Bike Tours”, “Ride a Classic Days” & our “Workshop Training Days”. The museum is excited to announce the first of these dates for 2017 which are exclusive to friends of the museum.  More dates will be announced during the year. See for more details.

NMM Friends Museum Workshop Training Day: Saturday 25/02/17.

Saturday 25/02/17 will herald the first Museum Workshop Training Day of 2017 which will be held in the museums Manxman suite.

This hosted event will feature various sessions presented by associates and partners of the museum including-“Rick’s Fixes” with Classic Bike Magazines Rick Parkington & “Frame Building” with fabrication guru Ken Sprayson (“The Frame Man”).

With further dates to be announced, Saturday & Sunday 01 & 02 April will see the first of this year’s “Try a Classic Bike Weekends”.

Friends’ scheme members will get the chance to ride a number of “laps” on various motorcycles from the museums inventory in a “closed roads” environment within the museum grounds. Machines will include a selection of veteran & vintage machines with lever throttle/hand change (training provided) as well as later machines from 1940s-1960s including Brough & Vincent!!

There will be a choice of either morning or afternoon sessions with a nominal fee of just £10.00 for friends of the museum making this cost substantially less than other similar opportunities.

NMM Friends Classic Bike Tours: Sat 25/03/17.

The first of three dates throughout 2017, friends’ scheme members will have the opportunity to ride some of the most exciting and valuable classic motorcycles from the museums inventory. Those taking part will receive an induction and “off road” training before being escorted by expert “advanced” motorcycle instructors around the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The machinery on offer varies from a BSA C15 to a Brough Superior SS100! Each class of machine attracts a different “hire” fee which includes insurance costs and lunch in the museum restaurant.
