MOTORCYCLE enthusiasts were out in force on
Sunday (May 6) at the Island Centre for the sixth annual Lisburn
Girder Fork Motorcycle Run organised by Lambeg couple Joan and
David Crawford on behalf of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club
Northern Ireland Section.
More than 50 people watched the start of the
popular event including Lisburn Mayor Councillor Trevor Lunn and
his wife Laureen.
At noon the 19 riders from all over the
province and one from Dublin left in the rain for a 40 mile run
through the country lanes towards Killyleagh Castle where they
made a short stop.

The sun shone from there to the meal stop at
Temple Golf & Country Club where they were shown a short film on
the British Motorcycle industry before being joined by the Mayor
and Mayoress for the meal.
Everyone enjoyed a safe ride with only one
machine having to finish the run in the van.
Organisers would like to thank everyone who
helped in any way especially Lisburn City Council for its
continued support for the event, the excellent photography
coverage by Navarat Turner and Robert Bryson the backup driver.
