So sad to hear that...realy sad...
Why don't you come over to Greece for the 25th National Vespa at the end of August??
We would love to see you here in Greece.
I found SIP Scootershop on the "sponsor"-list for VWD2011.
-is it true?
Would like to see you there!
For many years SIP Scootershop has been supporting the Eurovespa or – as it is now called the Vespa World Days.
This year‘s organizers, the Vespa Club of Norway, informed us now that – contrary to an agreement we already had - we are not wanted as a sponsor or supporter, as Piaggio seems to be against our presence there.
Man, the Pontedera people seem to be quite in awe of us… almost a reason to feel a little proud. Why? We have no clue. What a pity that the Norwegian organizers let Italy put the screws on them like that. Supporting an event in general means: You have work and expenses and get little in return. Still, we would have loved to help and we are truly sad that our enthusiasm was obviously not welcome.
That is why the SIP team won’t come to Norway, won’t make a SIP TV video, take pictures or write a blog. A pity. We had been looking forward to it.
Nonetheless, we wish all of you who are going there lots of fun and a great event. Ourselves, we wish for an organizing team with a little stronger spine in London 2012.
Found out theres a vehicle night train from Vienna to Hamburg which will cut out a big part of the journey, Hamburg to Frederikshavn (512km) Ferry to Oslo, Oslo to Gjovik (140km) Sorted…
