25 LAVERDA riders on their bikes had the most glorious summer weather conditions at this year's rally in Maria Schutz am Semmering. There were two 500s, six 750s, seven 1000s, four 1200s, four 1200 SC and one Zane 668 on display in the Afternoon.
Petra and Björn, hosts of the tavern "Zum Auerhahn", provided us with cool drinks and delicious meals. The beer garden as well as the parking lot buzzed with petrol-talk, suggestions for rebuilds and discussions of new projects. Minor technical problems were sorted out immediately by "Hirschi".
We were particularly pleased that Walter, who has owned a Sulzbacher LAVERDA 1200 SC since 1981, had come all the way from Upper Austria to join us. Walter promised to get his 1200 SC up and running again for our next rally. Only Raimund from Vienna has been more faithful: He still owns his 1200 SC which he bought new in 1977.
All those LAVERDA-owners who attended without their bikes this year will get away with it for once, but we definitely expect to see them with their LAVERDAS next year.
