The days may be getting shorter but that doesn't mean you need to put your classic motorcycle away. Exactly the opposite in fact: the autumn show season is just about to start and entries are now invited...
You're probably still enjoying your summer holiday, basking in the brilliant British sunshine (well…) but preparation and planning for your autumn entertainment is already in progress. We sponsor several Shows from September through to November, spread around the country and throughout the season to give everyone a chance to pop along. (Apologies to our readers in the far isles! Not quite so many opportunities for you to join us, but we know you're here in spirit*).
All RealClassic readers are very welcome to attend, with the family or riding solo, possibly as part of an organised ride-in with the rest of your club, branch or just on your tod. All kinds of classics are encouraged to come to our events, too, so that means of any origin and in any condition - be it a barn-fresh discovery or a recently restored replica. If you've upgraded your classic to make it practical for modern riding then our judges will be fascinated to see what you've done: we don't turn up our noses at non-standard spec although we do, of course, appreciate the patina of ages on an unrestored machine…
There will be a selection of concours awards up for grabs at each event with different categories and classes, and the arrangements for entering differ between organisers and sites. The common thread for show-goers is that if you can prebook and enter your bike for the displays in advance then you will be given discounted - and sometimes FREE - admission to the Show. All you need to do is turn up in time to put your bike on display and then you (and very often a chum too) can enjoy the rest of the day without splashing too much cash (unless the bargains in the jumble lead you astray, of course).
Without further ado, then, here's the early info so you can contact the appropriate organiser and get yourself signed-in for an RC Show this autumn:

The RealClassic Roadshow will be rolling along to all these events, with various members of the RC Crew popping up on different dates. Even if you don't think you're likely to win any prizes we'd be delighted to see you at any of these Shows, and will have a Jaffa Cake handy to reward your enthusiasm…
*Not that sort of spirit. Put the whisky away!
