With the Argentinian friends in Buenos Aires

Post by hugomez » Wed Nov 21, 2018 1:26 am

Hi All,

I just can't tell with words how amazing has been my visit to Enrique Campos, Claudio Navigatore and Claudio Cavanna in Buenos Aires. Their passion for this brand is extraordinary, and they make me feel like at home, if not better. Great people!!!, thank you amigos.

I have also receive calls and messages from other Argentinian Rumi enthusiasts (Luis, Guido, Juan Nizio (Juan, hopefully we will meet in my way back to BA next week)). Really, this have been so far much better than expected.

Now in my solo trip in the south of the country (Right now in Ushuaia), when I am dealing just with welcoming people wherever I go.

Here some photos with in Claudio Navigatore and Claudio Cavanna's garages, also with Enrique that came from far away to join us. Beautiful Rumi collections, very impressive, Love them!!!

Thank you guys!!!!! ;)

Hi Graham,
Sorry my friend, I didn't take many photos of the Sei Giorni (but I enjoyed so much watching every little detail of that beauty). Claudio has it every single day, for a good price, he can send you a bunch of nice photos by wetranfer in high resolution. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi Juan,
Nice to know that you are preparing a nice agenda for my day back in Buenos Aires, looking forward to that, but in the meantime I am enjoying so much the south of your country, what an amazing place!!!!

Hi Rudolf,
I know you wanted to also be here, I am sure you would enjoy this trip so much, as much as I am enjoying it or even more. I will tell you all the details once we are together again. :D

Greets!!

Hi All,

In my return to Buenos Aires after my amazing adventure in Patagonia, Juan Nizio picked me up at the airport and took me to his house to see his impressive Rumi collection, there I could also see his beautiful Fort T.

Last but not least, he took me to the location where the former Argentinian Moto Rumi assembling factory building was. The building is still the same, but now used by a metal company.
