Swinton Bikes Welcomes Harley Davidson Exhibition

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 22, 2011) - One of the UK's largest high street retailers of motorcycle insurance is welcoming a new Harley-Davidson exhibition that is coming to Manchester looking at the customisation and culture of the iconic brand.

Swinton Bikes is reminding motorcyclists that if they choose to customise their own motorbike they should inform their insurance provider as their bike insurance could go up.

In a survey of 1,200 online customers, Swinton Bikes found that over 7% of motorcycle owners have made some sort of customisations to their bikes. Bikers customising their bikes appears to be increasing in popularity, as this figure has increased by 4% since last year.

Although bike customisations can improve a bikes performance and appearance - which is amply demonstrated at the Harley-Davidson exhibition - failing to inform the insurance provider could mean their motorbike insurance is invalid.

The exhibition, which is open until September 11th, features a Harley-Davidson bike from each decade over the last century and world-class creations from the best customisers. With over 30 motorcycles on display, the exhibition features the earliest models to the very latest customised bikes.

Anthony Aronin, Head of Swinton Bikes said, "While the exhibition sounds very exciting we would remind all motorcyclist that if you customise your motorcycle it is vital that you inform your insurance provider of the changes you have made. You do not want to be left with a costly claim if your motorcycle insurance policy is deemed to be invalid."
