NMM Friend’s ‘Ride a Classic’ Day

NMM Friend’s “Ride a Classic” Day

Saturday 9th June saw a capacity entry of 60 museum friend’s scheme members having the opportunity to ride a diverse range of classic motorcycles from the museums inventory in another one of our ultra popular “ride a classic” days.

The day was split into two with 30 friends pre-booked onto either morning or afternoon sessions which gave everyone the chance to sample all of the eleven machines on offer.

Museum friend’s were treated to a host of exotic machinery including a “flat tank” Sunbeam Model 9 & an Ariel Cyclone 650cc

In addition to their annual membership fee the day cost museum friends just £10.00 per rider to help cover insurance costs. For more details of how to become a friend of the National Motorcycle Museum visit
