    EURoadTrip2018 – Stuttgart

    Pouch fitted, we left for Stuttgart, via Munich Airport, destination Porsche Museum. I have new respect for Navigational Racers! Following GPS instructions, on the wrong side of the road, traffic buzzing around you, traffic lights to contend with, all the while not losing your riding buddy! Not much time left to take in the beautiful surroundings! not much time to think about anything else either. Loving it, although I’ve never been so happy to see “85km, turn right”. (Only to almost miss the turning) Did not give any prior thought of what to expect upon arrival at the Porsche Museum… what a pleasant surprise. The Brand just keeps growing on me!!! I’m “Infected”…

    MV Agusta Factory Tour

    The GPS warned me that the Moto Guzzi Museum only opens at 15:00, so I rerouted to MV Agusta assuming the Museum would be at the same location. Well its not. And its closed until Saturday. A blessing in disguise!!! Upon arrival at MV, I presented myself to security and whispered the password “factory tour”, not expecting much as I had not made a booking. “Uno momento” (with finger in the air) came the response as security made a quick call… and ten minutes later i had my own personal factory tour guide. Unfortunately photos are “not permitted” in the pre-production, parts bin (“supermarket”) & single line production assembly plant, but are allowed…
