The 2014 edition of Sobre2Ruedas in Alicante was smaller than in previous years but still managed to pack in a few new models namely the Yamaha MT-07, the new V-Strom 1000 range from Suzuki and the revised Z1000 from Kawasaki.  The car park was packed on Saturday afternoon when we attended and had to park on the road outside and walk.

Originally intended for the 28th April and moved to the 26th of May at the last minute due to the weather, the organisers of the Matinal Motera in Alicante should be commended for putting on a great show.

Parking was straightforward, with plenty of space and easy access.  Entry had been 8€ in advance but 10€ on the day is OK, especially considering we got commemorative T shirts shown right, a sausage sandwich and beer to cool us down.

Today 3rd July 2011 marked the first matinal organised by the Motoclub La Rectoria in Orba, Costa Blanca, Spain.  The organisers were expecting about 100 - 150 bikers to attend this new event, in the end around 200 turned up helping to make the day a success.

The 4th edition of the show held at the Feria de Alicant near Alicante was a great success with stands from many of the major manufacturers including, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Ducati.

Local dealers where present as well with a good selection of new and second hand bikes on display along with clubs, clothing stands and insurance companies.  Not as many bicycles were on display as previous years which was a shame, but there were a few including some electric ones.
