09/04/2015  RLC Open Day Update No.5


We’re really close now to the date for the event and although we’d be lying if we said we are completely ready, we’re sure that all the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place at the last second.

Once of the main questions we are being asked is regarding the availability of taxi’s to-and-fro from the do, meals and travelling between the various hotels. As such we have contacted a local taxi firm to organise fixed rates and let them be aware of the number of people who might need transport during the weekend. We have advised most people to hire cars when booking flights but if you have not done so, during your stay, the magical taxi numbers are : ++39 0541 625755 or ++39 335 8484728 (Valerio) and ++39 335 8484730 (Gianni).

Judging by initial reactions, it also looks like the scooter run on Sunday 26th (organised by the local Teste Cromate S.C.) will be well attended so don’t forget to let Isabella know if you wish to partake in the meal planned after the run.

Other news is that the Scooter Run organised by the Teste Cromate S.C. for the Sunday will take in a slight detour to visit our friends at ‘Europlast’ in the nearby town of Gambettola. The owners, Giampaolo and Dani, work in collaboration with RLC and they produce all manner of fibreglass products for us, including bodywork parts and also the forthcoming ‘Bicilindrico SX200’ legshield toolboxes. They will make sure we’re all really welcome and will laying on a spread for our collective guests. Giampa’ also has a massive collection of scooters and will have two (yes, TWO) original SX150’s in the dead rare colour ‘Orange ‘67’ on display when we roll in! This will be a great pit-stop for the scooter run which will terminate at the restaurant ‘La Gallia’ outside of Sogliano al Rubicone in the hills up from the shop.
