TMW#5

1. Milano Visit Eight hours of travel through five airports on four airplanes for a quick five hour meeting. Love the smell of jet fuel in the morning, even if it meant leaving my scooter parked outside the airport at 5am (somehow I managed to squeeze in this Apocalypse Now reference twice in as many…

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…

Milano

I’ve been to 4 EICMA’s thus far (EICMA being the single largest motorcycle trade show in the world), but I never really had the time to see anything in Milan besides the trade show itself. The day starts off with breakfast in the hotel, followed by 10-12 hours of trade show, finished off by a…
