With the twist of a wrist, the Carole Nash Irish Motorbike and Scooter show went full throttle this morning.

Road racing star Michael Dunlop opened the show along with MC Steve Parrish, as competitors in the show’s Ace Global Stunt Starz competition treated the crowds to jaw-droppingly daring stunts, and the Nitro Girls turned up the temperature to searing hot.

More than 27,000 are expected to visit Dublin’s RDS for the biggest collection of beautiful machinery Ireland has seen in years.

BMW, Ducati, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, KTM, Harley-Davison, Triumph, Victory, Indian, Royal Enfield and Irish newcomers Volt Motorcycles will have their 2015 model line-ups on display.

There’ll be loads of bargains on top-quality clothing and helmets, plus the beautiful girls from the Model Search competition will provide some eye candy, while flat-track and sidecar speedway racers, along with stunt riders competing in the Ace Global Stunt Starz competition, will keep the petrol heads happy.

Meanwhile, the Irish round of the AMD World Custom Bike Building Championship will once again take place at the show – Ireland will be hoping for success again after Corkmen Don Cronin and Michael O’Shea progressed from the Irish qualifier to lift the overall title in 2013.

For all this and much more, head for the RDS in Dublin this weekend.
