After a stunning April of hot weather and high pollen counts, it was soon May…….I had been hoping for much of the same as we packed the car up and headed to the Peterborough BMF.
I was wrong
Rain………all that was forecast was rain. I really shouldn’t have got my hopes up as for the last 10 years the heavens have opened on the show on now less than 8 occasions!
We didn’t really need the sat nav as being based in Kings Lynn the journey took less than an hour…including a quick stop at Tescos for “refreshments”….cough, cough!
Tagging along with the me in the Bikesure posse were Jon (quote clerk), Jemma (PA and flux babe ) and Laura ( renewals staff and flux babe ). Bringing glitz, glamour and muscle to the show (and that was just the girls)
Bikesure hoodies line up for their mugshot
A quick check in at the hotel and we all convened for a couple of beers and a chat, mainly about hair, make up and clothes………we were soon joined by the girls ( these jokes don’t get any better )
Saturday morning and me and Jon arrived at the showground with Bikesure tent in hand. After doing these shows for over a year now the setting up took all of 3 minutes.
Just before the heavens opened we were joined by the girls and with laptops in hand we were up and running with quotes!
We like red
Now I know what you readers of this blog like to see and its not pictures of us working. So to rush things along I will let you know that we had a blast, sold policy’s and gave out loads of freebies.
I never knew you could spend £8.50 on pic n mix but I did!
We met loads of people over the weekend and a few familiar faces. Special mention to Mo from the Bandit Owners club (of which we are the official insurer ) who kept us going with tea and coffee. Also a shout out to that BMF man who lent us the use of the buggy…..good work!
As the company are getting bigger and better, we hope to keep attending this show as many years as possible. So be sure to pop into the red tent next time your down and come say hi
Here come the girls…………

The less said about the last photo the better…..but what a lovely white fence!!!
Well the show season is fast upon us and as usual Bikesure is gearing up to attend numerous events over the country for the following summer.
Following on from the success of previous meetings Bikesure are confirmed to be attending the following shows this year:
BMF 17th to 18th May = The largest outdoor motorcycle event in the Europe ( ooh impressive )
NABD “you been nabbed” 9th to 11th May = The largest outdoor gathering of men with beards ( oh and there’s a show there somewhere )
Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club 5th to 6th July = Need I say more??
UK quad show 27th to 28th Sep = Only quad show in the UK ( and the best )
If your quite new to what we do at these shows, I feel it my responsibility to fill you in with what it means to attend:
1. Spend the weekend giving out quotes to the public on laptops
2. Walking round the venue trying to be glamorous handing out goodie bags
3. Chatting to other companies and blagging as much free stuff as possible
4. Getting as many photo’s as you can with the promo girls ( just me )
As you can see, there is a lot of hard work and effort that goes into making a show successfull.
To keep up to date with the shows so far and whats happening within bikesure, keep posted to this blog!
