We might be all about cars, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love other motor powered machines as well. For all you adrenaline junkies and petrol heads, we decided to inform you of the annual Bike, Boat and Outdoor Lifestyle Show. This exciting event will happen from Friday the 8th of August to Sunday the 10th at the Johannesburg Expo Centre in Nasrec.


Those who prefer motorbikes will head down to Hall Five, where the AMID Motorcycle Association will be staging the Pirelli Motorcycle of the Year competition. Motorcycle enthusiasts can expect eight new motorcycle models and some equipment launches, too.


For the aqua travelers, the Johannesburg Boat Show will be held at Hall 6. It will feature the latest boats, engine technology, water sport equipment and accessories. Seven boat manufacturers will be launching new products at the show. One of the event’s highlights will be the introduction of Seabreacher’s unique underwater vessel. It has been designed to push the limits of what people can do in the water. Other water sport activities will be available including wakeboarding and fly-boarding demonstrations and the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) workshops.


For the fishermen, Angling Master Classes will be available. The line-up features New Zealand’s Chris Wong, one of the leading jiggers in the world. ASFN will also host workshops and there will be various fishing demonstrations on the Lake. The diving fraternity will be treated to presentations, workshops and personalities forming part of the PADI Dive Show. The weekend’s line-up also includes monster truck rides, paintball league events and a host of show specials and competitions.
