17th LAVERDA FREUNDE ÖSTERREICH rally on 20. 8. 2022 in Maria Schutz/Lower Austria

The weather in Maria Schutz stayed dry on Saturday, but in wide parts of Austria it had already started to rain in the morning. Nevertheless 20 LAVERDAs assembled in the parking lot in the afternoon. It was an illustrious group of motorcyclists from Vienna, Lower Austria, Burgenland, Styria, Carinthia, Upper Austria, Salzburg and Vorarlberg.

But there were also international visitors: our German friends from LCO - Reinhold and Sabine, Klaus and Cordula - are part of the core audience. Hans (www.deusmoto.at) however brought friends from Australia along. Paul at home rides a LAVERDA 1000 Jota, his mate Garth is president of the Moto Guzzi Club New South Wales.

After many years Peter and Tatjana (www.ital-jap.com) finally graced us with their presence again. We were particularly delighted to see Hans and Renate (www.masi.at) on a LAVERDA 750 Strike. It was their first appearance at one of our rallies.

Once again, the hospitality of the inn 'Zum Auerhahn' was truly exceptional. Many thanks to Petra and Björn! We will be back ...
