It's been a while since we visited one of the larger European bike shows, so with that in mind a trip to Motorcycle Live 2014 was arranged. It would give me a chance to catch up with the latest developments in the industry as well as catch up with my brother who would meet me there.
Visiting Motorcycle Live, which is at the NEC near Birmingham, is a bit of a chore to get to from Spain as you can't simply fly in for the day and see the show and fly back, accommodation would have to be found. After a bit of web searching a nice pub was found in the small village of Hampton-In-Arden just a short, 4 minute train ride from the NEC.
The White Lion is a great pub with real ale on draught and nice rooms, highly recommended for a visit to the NEC.
