The 2017 Carole Nash Irish Motorcycle and Scooter show

The RDS hosts this event every second year and this one catered for everyone. 2-strokes, 4-strokes, choppers, adventurers, Hypersports and everything in between were on show.

Racing heritage was well represented also with the hugely popular Joey Dunlop tribute bringing “Wows!” from old and young alike as many racing clubs and tracks desperate to promote Irish racing which has seen a noticeable decline in meetings recently.

The show consisted of 3 inner halls containing most of the major Irish dealerships and clothing\accessory suppliers along with outdoor demonstrations. All the stands were laid out well and there was plenty of space to view and interact with the content.

Especially well organized displays were on show from BMW Motorad Ireland, Rosso Ducati, Honda Ireland, Triumph, Yamaha and the newly open Indian retailer, Franklin Motorcycles.

Also present for the weekend were some wonderful stands from RevUp4DSI, Dunboyne Motorclub and the volunteers from Blood Bikes East.

Unfortunately this event doesn’t occur every year in Ireland so it was a pleasant change to a March Friday morning to spend the day in the company of quality friends and machinery alike.
