Suzuki Cavalcade Club Finland
Suzuki Cavalcade Club Finland The birth of SCC Finland
Back in 2000 I´ve got the first glimps of this big bike. For a few years Cade was constantly in my mind and I decided to place an announcement to the “Yellow Market” Keltainen Pörssi paper. Motorcycle importer Timo Herranen from Japsirauta bike shop contacted me. He had an 1988 LX model for sale in California. We came to a deal and I saw my Cade live in Timo´s garage on summer 2004. It was truely love at first sight making me forgot Voyagers, Harleys and Gold Wings. My soul was sold to Cavalcade! During first summer I got to know the Cade a bit more thinking is it really possible to lose my heart to this bike. So be it. I started to locate other Cades and owners in Finland, which was not an easy task. I learnt to know that establishing a Cavalcade-Club was in mind of Rauno Urpalainen from Motsikka back in 80’s. For the lack of his time to the cause it was only an idea for some time. After visiting Ranu I decided to give it a try if I only can find more Cade riders willing to commit to establish the club. Club foundation protocol was signed by myself, Ari Lekander, Heikki Salonen and Jari Lassila in Lahti city at ST1 gas station on Tampereentie 352. It was then sent to governments association registry for approvance dated 20th of May 2006. Officially the club was founded one month later 20th of June 2006. So finally, after 21 years since first Cavalcade landed on finnish soil, Suzuki Cavalcade Club Finland ry was officially registered. Today the club consists of 24 members. We have 32 Cades in traffic and eight is known removed from motor vehicle register or trashed. Kouvola 12th of March 2012 Juha Heinonen, SCCF president
