Motorcyclists from throughout the north-east are being cordially invited to Muster at the Museum on Sunday, Septemebr 5.

The date was chosen as a marker for the date of the popular Grampian Motorcycle Convention that was held annually at the Museum from 1983 until Covid paused events UK wide.

However, for 2021 the Museum’s Motorcycle Muster is simply a gathering in the Museum’s arena - a chance for people to meet up and share their enthusiasm for their machines, ancient and modern.

To attend with a motorcycle an online booking is required by visiting the website www.gtm.org.uk where participating motorcyclists will be given access the Muster in the events arena for just £5 per motorcycle.

This entry fee does not include access to the Museum itself as numbers in the building are still regulated.

Those keen to view the exhibitions will need to book online as Museum Visitors.

Visiting machines are asked to arrive anytime between 10am and 3pm to be parked up on the road circuit in the events arena which should produce a great display.

There will be ample refreshments on site and so a great chance to catch up with fellow enthusiasts following the lengthy Covid interruption.

The Muster will run from 10am to 5pm.

Covid measures are still in place at GTM both inside and out and will remain for the rest of the 2021 season to keep visitors safe.

Curator Mike Ward said: "Hopefully, in future, the early September date will again feature the Grampian Motorcycle Convention, which regularly attracted crowds of up to 8000 visitors, once we start referring to Covid-19 in the past tense.

"In the meantime the date will be used to good effect with the Motorcycle Muster."
