Motorcycle Live 2013 added another live feature – the Silverstone Rookie Ride – taking the tally of interactive activities at the show to 17, including nine free opportunities to ride.
The Silverstone Rookie Ride  is an initiative by the Northamptonshire race circuit to introduce young people to motorcycling. Aimed at those aged 11 and up, the feature will offer free 20-minute indoor taster sessions on a Yamaha Jog RR scooter. Participants will be provided with Alpinestars protective clothing and will be taught the basics of machine familiarisation and how to pull away and stop safely, before progressing to slow speed manoeuvring skills.

The scooters are fitted with kill switches and all training takes places under the watchful eye of expert instructors. As well as learning new skills and an awareness of other road users, all attendees will take away a Silverstone lanyard and ‘Rookie Ride’ card.

The Silverstone Rookie Ride completes a range of live features aimed at introducing children and young adults to life on two wheels. With the Kiddimoto Children’s Fun Track, Honda My First Licence, the Red Bull Pro National Children’s Off-Road experience, Try a Kuberg – Children’s Electric Motorcycle and now the Silverstone Rookie Ride, youngsters from the age of two to late teens can enjoy a two-wheeled experience at Motorcycle Live.

Motorcycle Live takes place at The NEC, Birmingham from 23 November – 1 December 2013.
