4. Annual LAVERDA FRIENDS AUSTRIA-Meeting 2009

September 5, 2009 - Together with our friends of the club "Akustik Italiana" we organised the 4th annual meeting of the LAVERDA FRIENDS AUSTRIA in Gloggnitz/Lower Austria. Even though rain and wind had destroyed our tent the previous night, the meeting itself took place on a glorious day.

Ulf presented his 1200 racer, Wuff had revitalised his old 1000 3C, Fritz came with his faithful 70s-style triple, Wolfgang showed off his elegant 120 Jota, Karl-Heinz, Alfred and Michael were holding up the colours of the Zane bikes, Gerhard and Andi had swapped bikes, Franz R, as usual, had polished his 1200 SC to mirror finish, Franz K. set spurs to his gorgeous 500, Andreas had modified his 1000 and put on a hump seat, Hannes arrived on his 1000 from Carinthia, Gert showed up on his reliable 1000 3CL, Stefan, irrespective of a previous late night, straddled his dark green 750 SF, Karl arrived with his original 1200 from Upper Austria, and Sepp even visited from Tirol on his 750 SF.

Some of the LAVERDA riders which we had reckoned were sure to come, unfortunately didn't show up. For next year we would really love to have a bigger field of participants, as all of you should know: It's no good for our bikes if they are just standing around. Ride 'em!
