23. 6. 2023 – 25. 6. 2023
Believe it or not, yhalinen.com has attended a Vespa meeting! The largest scooter rally in the Czech Republic took place this weekend 23-25.6.2023, this was the 11th rally of its kind. I have no idea how many participants there were but, many… Like with all this happenings they (the organisers) are trying to get publicity and good PR for the Club, happening, City of Prague, I guess? That’s probably why they keep the parade drive route a secret all the way until the end, make sense or…? Yes, I missed the first photos because I was directed to the wrong bridge, and stood there for quite a while until I had to believe that no scooters were gonna come here today. I guess this has something to do with the PR work, or maybe not?
Shiny happy people
But the scooter people seemed to be in a good mode, and why not. They gotta spend some nice time with their soul brothers and sisters, share experiences and stories among themselves, and the weather was absolutely great, so.. the feeling was really good! And of course you can see this yourself by looking at the pictures. yhalinen.com was a little surprised by the age decline, there was really everything from 0 and up to a very high reading, not bad. And of course, as it should be, you were able to find some four legged friends also. Did you know that the Vespa name means wasp in Italian, the mother country of the Vespa, at least that was what I was told. It has to do with the sound of the engine. And again yhalinen.com learned something. Because what sound??? Being an old Harley man I must confess I thought they all were electrical vehicles, I mean, sound? They claimed rock hard that they were combustion engines. It was worth waking up this morning again.
They’ll be back!
They also claimed that this was not the last time, the plans are already being formed for next year. If you are interested you must figure out where and when yourself. This might be hard work because you never know if it’s a big secret? But being on the serious side, a nice happening that defends its place like any other happening, festival or… Just for your information, the event was organised by Vespa Club Prague.
