I have to admit that travelling has left me somewhat tired and confused. But I did arrive at the correct destination for the Wheels & Wings event – Skövde, not Västerås as I initally thought.
We started off from Gothenburg. I was invited by a good friend who was going to do representative work for Sveriges motorcyklister, (it’s like a Swedish bikers union). It sounded like fun and apart from the event itself she was going to take her newly purchased Yamaha XT660 there.
Unfortunately, autumn arrived early in Sweden this year. We had a lot of rain on our way and it wasn’t too warm either. I have had plenty of opportunities to test my new rain gear and apart from being high viz, which is a pro on a grim day, I can’t say that it is doing a good job. But warm showers awaited us at Klåva hostel close to Skövde airport where the event was to take place.
The event had its main focus on cars, lots of nice old classics and airplanes but there were a couple of two- and one- (!) wheeled ingredients as well.
One of the main events was Sune and his stunt performance, check out his website, MC-Stunt. He has a lot of experience in this field and does remarkable stuff, I tried to capture some of it with my camera:
It seems like this was my last motorcycle event for this summer. The bike is now awaiting the paperwork for the import and Swedish registration. We finished off the weekend with a proper feast at a 50’s-style hamburger restaurant in the small village of Töreboda.
