For those of you who have never visited one of the truly enormous motorcycle exhibitions, German Intermot Open link in a new window or Italian Eicma, will never understand how humongous these shows are. They are world's biggest, by far, and if you walk at a normal pace, walking through each walkway/aisle in the enormous halls, you'll have walked a lot. In fact, you'll have walked some 30 to 50 kilometers (18 to 31 miles). This means that if you plan to visit one of these motorcycle exhibitions, and you only have a half or a whole day, you'd best plan ahead and mark who you want to see, because if you are going to stop and see stuff at a stand, you'll never get out of one hall.

In the photo below, you can clearly see the Intermot exhibition center in Cologne, Germany. To get an idea of the size, just look at the bottom part of the photo; you'll see cars there, so you can imagine the size for a human being. Most of the halls are chock-full with motorcycles and their accessories.

It's difficult to show you how big this is. Visitors I have shown the show from abroad always come back with amazement at the size. Click on the photos for a bigger version.

So think of me running around the aisles with my backpack with cameras, computer and the press kits...
