Touratech Travel Time 03_2011_en

3 EDITORIALEDITORIAL Travel TimeTravel Time Herbert Schwarz Jochen Schanz MANAGING DIRECTORS/BOARD OF TOURATECH AG PAGETHREE As soon as autumn arrives, this marks the end of the motorbiking season in many countries, while at the same time the important trade fairs in Milan, Birmingham and Paris will give us some idea as to what to expect in the coming year. For the first time, Touratech will not be presenting a new catalogue at these motorbike exhibitions, as we would like to surprise you in January 2012 with a new publication which puts together everything that belongs together: all the Touratech products from the Adventure, Streetline and Timeless ranges. After all, we are united by the pleasure of a mutual hobby, no matter whether we prefer being on the road in a sporty manner or whether we prefer the off-roads. To bridge the waiting period until the Touratech catalogue 2012 appears, this issue of Travel Time will give you a taste of our novelties, including acces- sories and special parts for the Husqvarna Nuda 900, the revamped Triumph Street Triple and the new BMW R 1200 R. At the same time we would like to revisit the highlights of a season, which was as colorful and full of variety as the brochure you are just holding in your hands. This includes events such as the Travel Event and the BMW Motorrad GS Challenge at our company premises in Niedereschach, which exceeded all expectations, or the top places of our racing team, Touratech Racing, which successfully tested our products at the most arduous Enduro events of the world. Not to forget, the introduction of the Toura- tech CompaƱero, which received many positive comments from across the globe. This time, the travel report includes a very special story. For a change, it does not portray how we discover foreign countries, but how a group of Canadian and British motorcyclists experienced our home region, the Black Forest. We would like to help you while away the long autumn evenings with exci- ting stories and a preview of my next project in Africa, and to inspire you for the upcoming motorbiking season.
