Thumbs up EMOK 6th Motorcycle Festival of Turkey 28th june - 1stJuly

Hello all;
I would like to inform Horizonsunlimited community about the 6th Motorcycle festival organised by our club EMOK.
The location is 5 hours away from Istanbul town called Kirka. Kirka is nearby to Eskisehir a big city with 2 universities.

The festival is between 28th of June and 1st of July.

The place is within the forest next to a lake. There will be lot of MC manufacturers (Honda, Suzuki, BMW, KTM to name some) , games to keep people social and enjoy.

Previously we had riders from Germany coming over. Hopefully this year there will be more. This is a good opportunity to meet biker community of Turkiye and have some company.

Accomodation is mainly camping. We provide toilets and showers. There will be lot of food options like last year with reasonable prices. There are few small rooms available in near by towns.

Contact me on list or post here all of your questions and I will try to answer them at my best.

Finally there were over 1.000 riders last year, from all over Turkiye. Hopefully more international riders will join us this year.

Ozhan already has given the gas prices. I can add that there lot of gas stations where you can get unleaded easily.

The Festival at Kirka would be your first choice for a get together. From where you can head to different directions of Turkey. North for cooler weather, green hills, lots of history.

South for mediterranean, west for egean.

As we are working out the details, several manufacturers will be there presenting their bikes and sponsoring some other activities.

Hope to see you there.

Actualy we do have one oil company as sponsor to the activities.
I say you pay a lot for gas but save ın other items like food, camping etc...

So can we count you in?

Hey Burak

Thanks for the information.....I would like to come but I am working then. I recently biked to Istanbul via Eastern Europe, staying in the Sultanahmet area and enjoyed it a lot!

BUT! in a year or two I will be free to come in July and would like to visit your festival. So thanks for mentioning it.....Please continue to advertise it each year ......more bikers will come each year...

It is good to see Turkish bikers appearing on the international scene...when Turkey is part of the European Union then it will increase...

Good luck!
