We appreciate that choosing the right bike can sometimes be a tricky decision. Do you follow your heart or your head? We hope that by making a comprehensive range of demo bikes available to you, we make the process, not only easier but more enjoyable too.
If you'd like to arrange a demo ride, you'll need to make an appointment with one of our Sales team and meet our insurer's criteria (see below for T&C's)
All you need to bring with you is your riding kit, your valid driving licence, a 2nd form of ID and your National insurance number. You also need to leave the keys for the vehicle you travelled to us in/on. Pillions are welcome, but we would encourage a short ride out first to get familiar with the bike. Please note due to Hygiene & Safety issues we do not provide loan helmets or protective clothing. If you are a new rider helmets can be purchased for as little as £49.99 and gloves are available from £24.99.

The Route and the time:
We don't insist on the route, but we created it to help you experience the bike in all types of road types and it covers some great local biking roads. It takes approx 35-45 minutes and gives you a taste of the inner city, faster dual carriageway and some nice twisties. It also ensures we can find you quickly should any problems occur. Our maximum demonstration ride time is 1 hour.
Exit 5-Ways and travel over the Anlaby road flyover in the direction of the Smith and Nephew buildings and join the A63 heading away from Hull. Follow the A63 before taking the turn off for North Ferriby. Amble through the winding A Roads through Feriby and over to Melton bottoms and then head off in the direction of Willerby. Once you've reached the shopping park at Willerby and turned off to enter the village itself, you can head back into Hull using the Kingston Road, Willerby road & Springbank route which will eventually bring you back to Walton Street. Turn right just before the railway crossing and follow Walton Street right back to the front of the store.
