Show Time in Lisburn!

Ireland’s  largest annual motorcycle show, the Blackhorse NI Motorcycle Festival, once again opens its doors this weekend at Lisburn’s Eikon Exhibition Centre.

The show runs from today, Friday, until Sunday, February 4th and will feature a host of top racers. These include Lee Johnston, Alastair Seeley, Keith Farmer and John McGuinness. These biking legends will be on hand to sign autographs and mingle with the fans.

Ulster Grand Prix ‘Man of the Meeting’ Peter Hickman has also been confirmed to attend Hickman claimed no fewer than five podiums from five starts at the Isle of Man TT before chalking up a trio of wins at Dundrod.NI bike shoe

He has now signed up with the Smiths Racing team for a second season to contest the British Superbike Championship as well as riding in the international road races.

Johnston – who has just signed to Honda – as well as North West 200 record-breaker Seeley, will partake in some early season rivalry when they line up for some fun pit bike racing outside the venue. What’s the worst that could happen?

The show, organised by Billy and Marty Nutt, is now in its 23rd year and has just got bigger and better, becoming a must-see fixture on the motorcycling calendar here in Ireland.

All the latest models from the major manufacturers will be on display, including Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, BMW, KTM as well as Triumph and even Moto Guzzi.
