 One of the most important aspects of the National Motorcycle Museum Friends Scheme is giving its members the chance to take part in some unique activities that just wouldn’t be possible otherwise. Some of this unique content includes our “Classic Bike Tours”, “Ride a Classic Days” & our “Workshop Training Days”. The museum is excited to announce the first of these dates for 2018 which are exclusive to friends of the museum.  More dates will be announced during the year. See for more details.


NMM Friends Museum Workshop Training Day: Saturday 24/02/18.

Saturday 24/02/18 will herald the first Museum Workshop Training Day of 2018 which will be held in the museums Compton suite.

This hosted event will feature two sessions presented by Classic Bike Magazines Rick Parkington (“Ricks Fixes”). 

The museums own restoration team will also be on hand to discuss some “tricks of the trade”!

Our Museum Workshop Days are free of charge to friends of the museum.


NMM Friends Classic Bike Tours: Sat 24/03/18.

The first of a number of dates throughout 2018, friends’ scheme members will have the opportunity to ride some of the most exciting and valuable classic motorcycles from the museums inventory. Those taking part will receive an induction and “off road” training before being escorted by expert “advanced” motorcycle instructors around the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The machinery on offer varies from a BSA B31 to a Brough Superior SS100!

Each class of machine attracts a different “hire” fee which includes insurance costs and lunch in the museum restaurant.


NMM Friends “Try a Classic Bike” Day: Sat 31/03/18.

With further dates to be announced, Saturday 31st March will see the first of this years “Try a Classic Bike Days”.

Friends’ scheme members will get the chance to ride a number of “laps” on various motorcycles from the museums inventory in a “closed roads” environment within the museum grounds. Machines will include a selection of veteran & vintage machines with lever throttle/hand change (training provided) as well as later machines from 1940s-1960s including Brough & Vincent!!

There will be a choice of either morning or afternoon sessions with a nominal fee of just £10.00 for friends of the museum making this cost substantially less than other similar opportunities.
