Bike Show

The Bike Show was the centre-piece of the Overland Event in 2017 and will be again in 2018.

Thanks to our partnership with Coventry Transport Museum, the Show in ’17 featured the Rudge Whitworth sidecar outfit ridden by Stanley Glanfield on his world tour in 1927 and 1928, plus XRW 964M – probably the most famous Triumph motorcycle in the world of overland travel – which Ted Simon rode around the world on his Jupiter’s Travels journey in the ’70s.

And of course there was a host of other bikes – TeaPotOne’s GSXR, Sam Manicom’s R100GS, Richard and Mopsa English’s Triumph outfit, Jacqui Furneaux’s Enfield, Elspeth Beard’s R60/7, Paddy Tyson’s 650 Pegaso, Ian Coates’ Africa Twin and many more – all of them veterans of iconic overland adventures. We’ll soon be announcing the 2018 surprise appearances!
