Midwest Moto is new dealership tucked away in a lovely spot just outside Stourport on Severn in lovely rural Worcestershire. I really enjoyed their opening celebration a couple of months ago. So I was only too pleased to go along there again for a visit when the Importers of the two key brands they sell were on site with demo bikes from the range for people to try out.
The weather was perfect, almost too hot, and as well as the Indian and Victory bike ranges, there was a load of other stuff going on. A bar-be-cue selling stonking home-made burgers, displays by the local ‘Blood-Bike’ team and a motorcycle tour company
It was a cracking day and good to see a brand new dealership thriving….the ‘Switchback cafe’ is now open above the showroom and there is a stylish clothing boutique there too now. Some very, very cool gear on show
The importers were on site for two days and wide range of bikes were available for demo over an interesting 20 mile loop. There was a strong turnout over both days and everybody seemed to be having a great time. I certainly enjoyed myself and took out two bikes, a Victory Octane and a Indian Scout…likes them both.
A superb event at a dealership that seems to offer a new take on biking in the midlands, this has to be a good thing! I will let my pictures tell the story:
Some great customs rocked up too
Loved this old Greeves that was on display…still competes at Red Marley Hill Climb ever year
Checking out the Switchback Cafe
Not just classic American bikes were on show…
Got to love somebody as prepared as this!
Slingshot trike by Polaris
Loads of bikes to try…
I tried these two, a Victory Octane and an Indian Scout
A reminder of the heritage of the Indian brand…iconic
