Stunts at the Grampian Motorcycle Convention

Around 2,000 stalwarts battled atrocious weather as they took to the outdoor arena to enjoy one of the best motorcycle shows in Britain. 
Performances from Scotland’s number one stunt rider Kevin Carmichael wowed the crowds throughout the day.

Kevin began competing at the age of 7 when he took up schoolboy motocross and in 2002 he was crowned World Champion in Texas.
Ever since the Convention began in 1983 there has been a vintage and classic bike parade – this year there were over thirty bikes of all ages on display and on the track.

Museum Trustee Peter Donaldson brought along his 1962 Ariel Leader which took to the circuit during the Classic Bike Parade.

Peter has been taking part in the Convention for the last 10 years.

He said: “Considering the awful weather I thought it was a fantastic day. The Grampian Motorcycle Convention really is the highlight of the year as far as the Biking calendar is concerned and I can’t wait for the 2015 Convention.”
