When it comes to motorcycle shows, EICMA is the macdaddy. It's easy to spend three fulls days here looking at the many pavillions loaded floor to ceiling with every brand, product and country's products. This year the econony was the big topic but it was hard to see it when most manufacturers had big displays, pretty girls and new models. Did I mention this place is HUGE? For those of us used to Cycle World shows let me put it in perspective - the NY City Cycle World show in total costs what the Milan show charges for models and dresses. I mean seriously, this is a really huge show. See it all here now.......

New this year for Ducati - the Streetfighter. Perfectly named, in order to see it you had to fight the crowds.
See anything different here?
EICMA is famous for it's new bike introductions. It might be more famous for the models
