Always one of the most popular areas of the Show, the Adventure Zone returns in 2017 with a vast array of displays to inspire motorcyclists onto their next big trip. The special area will showcase riders and motorcycles with incredible stories, from an ex-policeman’s epic 70,000 mile trip on a GSX-R1000 to a middle-aged mum’s seven year around the world adventure on a Royal Enfield.

The Adventure Stage is also returning and will be curated and presented by Nathan Millward, author of ‘Sydney to London…The Long Ride Home’. Eight of the UK’s most inspirational travellers will be taking to the stage to talk through their incredible stories, including Bruce Smart, Johanna Clark, Rhys Lawrey, Melanie and Sofia Cowpland, Rob Archibald, Jacqui Furneaux, Alex Jackson and Zoe Cano. As always, the stands surrounding the Adventure Zone provide would be explorers with everything they need; from experts to help you book your own trip, an area to meet the stars to discuss tips and retailers to purchase explorer ready kit.
