Women of EICMA 2016

I was really trying to write a meaningful blog entry just now, but simply nothing was making any sense as soon as I typed it. I figured it just wasn’t a good evening to write. So, without further ado, I leave you with all the models of EICMA 2016. Please note that most of these…

Schwalbe at EICMA

While still pretty hot from our Intermot official showing of the Schwalbe, this week GOVECS presented Schwalbe at EICMA in Milan, Italy. Our booth took on a little different arrangement from just a month ago due to an EICMA regulation on open floor space percentage, and while just a little smaller than at Intermot, we…

Bergamo, Italy

I spent the first half of this week in Bergamo, Italy, visiting a plastics manufacturer named Acerbis.

It is the biggest motorcycle show in the world and every year it is the place to be if you’re a motorcycle manufacturer or simply a cycling enthusiast. This year marked  EICMA’s 70th show, and my very first one. To…

AC Milan Night Out

As soon as we landed in Milan my coworker Krzysiek said to me “you know there is an AC Milan game tomorrow, right?” Now I don’t follow football at all, but a Champions League game versus sitting around the hotel just sounded like a better idea for an evening in Milan. The game in question…
