Saturday, Mai 19th, 2012: 2 Highlights on the agenda. Open Day at SIP Scootershop - and the Championsleague Finals. Let's not talk about the soccer game. The wounds are still too fresh. The Open Day on the other hand was a huge success. After we had to postpone the original date due to bad weather, St.Peter seems to have been in a good mood this weekend. While the sun was shining brightly, the area around the SIP headquartes in Landsberg was soon crowded with scooter enthusiasts of all ages.
Just like the years before, Tim (Vollgas Motorroller/Bodensee) provided his mobile dyno on which people could put their scooters to the test for free. Julius (Alpenland) offered tasty coffee right out of his APE and Vespa Finkl brought some of the latest Vespa models that you could test ride. Leo Ernst (Deeper Shade, Atomic Café) on the record deck made sure, everybody stayed in a dancing mood. The trophy for 'longest journey' goes to Matthias and his two mates who had come from Offenbach (Hessen). But there were also scooterists from Straubing, Regensburg and salzburg. We are very happy that people make such an effort to visit us. The oldest scooter of the day was a mudguard headlight Vespa built in 1950, which the proud owner had bought for just 600.- DM from a nice old man a couple of years ago. Congrats on this one!
In the shop, we offered the usual Opem Day 10% discount and long queues formed at the checkout counter. At around 2pm, the rideout through the historic part of Landsberg started. More than 70 scooters helped to bring some Italian flair to Landsberg city. The people in the cafes and at the wayside were obviously pleased by this unexpected invasion. The tour ended in the Trattoria Italiana, where everybody enjoyed food and drinks and talked fuel. Only a little group had not yet had enough and continued their ride to the Italian Mile in Bad Wörsihofen.
Unfortunately the day ended with an accident of a scooterist from Augsburg. We wish Andy good luck and a quick recovery. Thanks to everyone for coming and spending this great day with us.
