Mustang will be Well Represented this Month at a Pair of Trade Expos

4 Feb

We’re shipping a bunch of our staffers off to a pair of motorcycle industry trade shows over the next couple of weeks, which gives them the perfect setting to meet and interact face-to-face with distributors, dealers, retailers and the press. Some see industry trade shows in general as junkets, but not us — we put a lot of stock in what can happen at such events and how the knowledge we gain from our peers helps you, the motorcycle enthusiast.

The first February trade show we’ll be attending is V-Twin Expo, which begins this Saturday and runs through Monday at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
