We’ve heard the term “crotch rockets” thrown around but in this case, “crochet rockets” might be more appropriate. In what may be the most Yamaha thing you’ll see this week, the Japanese manufacturer wants to teach people how to knit their own mini-Niken three-wheelers out of yarn, either by the Japanese art of amigurumi crocheting or by a technique called needle felting.
We go for the motorcycles, but there’s more on display at EICMA that also grabs our attention. Grabbing attention, in fact, is what it’s all about in Milan, a thing they’ve known forever in the fashion capitol of the world. MO’s own burly fashionista, bon vivant, world traveler, suspension compressor, epicure and Creative Dissector, Sean Alexander, managed to take time out from his pressing (the flesh) duties to capture a few fleeting (probably frightened) images on his pheromone-soaked portable device. And our ace videographer, Chris Blanchette, put together an eye-candy-laced video for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
