Italia (again)

A weekend in Italy, no bikes this time but 3 days is suffer able without the bikes, a great weekend catching up with friends and relations and some sight seeing. Last night we were both seriously trying to work out if we had to come back to the UK, we were spoiled with a weekend of great weather (hot!) great food and nice wine, whats not to like?

  2. Aye, it's nice, very nice, but it's not Scotland. Too hot to ride in the summer, no rain to wash the claurt off yer bike, and roads even more full of tourists (whoever 'invented' the NC500 should be shot)

    1. Never too hot Jake, other ways to wash the bike, in fact if there's no rain it just gets dusty :-)
      Agree on the NC500, complete bollocks ruined it for us poor sods who have to live here
