SWISS-MOTO, Zurich, CH
Taking the mountain air is always good for you, so we grabbed our alpenstocks and went for a little hiking among the Swiss motorcycle mountains, crossed the foothills of aftermarket parts and scaled the precipitous attractions that had been promised. With steady feet we climbed the three storeys of SWISS-MOTO, together with many moto-mountaineers who had decided to attack the numerous summits all at once. The views of the current moto landscape from these dizzying peaks was magnificent.
A monumental Everest of a booth was the Harley-Davidson stand, giving far reaching glimpses of a motorcycling future with their electric LiveWire, which could be tried on for size and even test ridden on a simulator. Also, the prototype Panamerica was on display.Indian had rope teamed up with the ACE Café to give well earned refreshment to the tired and thirsty hikers.
