The Foreign Residents in the TRNC – TFR
6th Lapta Tourism Festival –
by Ralph Kratzer
The first meeting point in the late morning was the Bikers Club in Girne. More and more bikers arrived with their machines. There was a lot of general chat and expert advice exchanged. Amongst the heavy motorcycles we felt a little out of place with the scooter, derogatory comments, however, were not to be heard …
After about 1 hour, a group of 15 motorcycles made their way in the direction of Lefkoşa, led by Jawa Ali, the guy on who I reported recently. Click here
There were more riders joining our group, now other scooters and even quad bikes and a trike were there as well. About 50 machines with their riders made their way in a northwest direction to the next stopover in Camlibel. From there it went on to Karşiyaka and Lapta, the end of the tour.
After the motorcycle parade had turned a lap through Lapta all bikers met with their machines at the Sempati Hotel where a stage and tables were set up. The music band “Group Garage” and perfectly arranged catering ensured a good mood among the motorcycle riders …. a nice end of a successful tour.
