Motorcycle Live 2012 is go!

Author: Bike Social Reporters Posted: 24 Nov 2012

Motorcycle Live in Birmingham kicked off on Saturday with massive crowds and some famous faces filling the halls including Cal Crutchlow, Jonathan Rea and the BBC's MotoGP presenters Steve Parrish and Matt Roberts.

As well as the chance to see all the new 2013 bikes for the first time in the UK, show visitors also lined up to have a go at trials, put their kids on KTM motocross bikes, and buy kit from the hundreds of stands at the show.

And despite the weather, the halls were packed with people lining up to snap their hero, eye-up their next bike or bag themselves a deal on some new riding kit or accessories.

If you haven't been yet, then the show runs from today until December 2. Here's some of our highlights from the first day:
