London Motorcycle Show

WHAT: It’s heaven for petrolheads, with 37 manufacturers showing off their biggest, most powerful bikes. There’s also a 60-minute live action show featuring stunt riders and a full tank of pyrotechnics. Don’t try it a home.

February 3-6.

DO IT BECAUSE: Maybe you’re in the market for a new chopper or, at least, you’re prepared to torture yourself by getting up close with bikes you’ll never be able to afford. Really, though, any excuse will do for motorcycle obsessives.
