Old Motorbike Event 2013 July 26-28

It is the biggest yearly nationwide old motorbike event, This time arranged by the “Stadin Pärtsarit and VMPK Veteraanimoottoripyöräklubi” at Hotel Korpilampi Espoo. Many attendats stayed for the entire weekend at the hotel which is only about eight kilometer from where we live.

Leif is a member of the VMPK Veteraanimoottoripyöräklubi club. Of course he wanted to go there to meet friends from all around the country. As I had not been there for a very, very long time I said I go too. We decided to visit the event only for one day, yesterday.

Such a wonderful, warm, sunny day. Plus twenty nine degrees Celsius. The hotel is on the top of a small hill.  The bikes all were on the big parking lot outside the hotel. They had arranged for a tractor ride up the hill and down. Am I happy we waited for the tractor as the road up was quite steep in the beginning. Would not have been an easy task for me in 29 Celsius.

Canelo hesitated for a moment before he hopped onto the trailer.

Since I have poor balance, this would be my kind of motorcycle.

After two hours I was ready to leave because it was as hot as in sauna bath up there. Walking down hill was easy.
