10th LAVERDA FREUNDE ÖSTERREICH Rally in Maria Schutz am Semmering, 29 August 2015

This year's anniversary rally took place in very hot Summer weather: Almost 30 riders and their LAVERDAS found their way to Maria Schutz. The 1000 and 1200cc triples dominated, but there were also several 750 SF, a 350 and even a 100 Sport to be admired in the parking lot of the "Gasthaus Auerhahn". Unfortunately there was only one single Zane LAVERDA! Amongst the numerous triples there were eight 1200cc Sulzbacher LAVERDAs - a rare Austrian tuning special.

Our guest of honour was Rudy Schachinger who 15 years ago migrated to Florida/USA. When he left he took two of the very rare Haider-Prünner-race-LAVERDAs with him, which he is successfully racing in classic bike meetings in the US. From Germany came Sabine and Reinhold "Pilot" Weinert.

By mid-afternoon the parking lot was well filled with three rows of motorbikes. We took pictures of every rider with his LAVERDA, but much to our dismay left one out: Erich Rascher, Lower-Austrian grandee with his gorgeous 750 SF2. Sorry Erich, we'll try to make up for it.
