Well ,sorted the ferry bookings out last night so we're bound for Sicily once more.We went a couple of years back but didn't see everything we wanted to see so planned to go back last year.That didn't happen because of stuff.Everyone has stuff of various kinds which can undermine their plans.So we're going in June so long as we can avoid "stuff"
We're cheating this time because of time constraints and taking the ferry from Genoa to Palermo.I'd rather ride down Italy through the mountains but, you can't have it all.
Caroline's going to fly to and from Genoa and limit her riding to the island tour.I'll enjoy the solo leg of the journey no doubt.
Must get some new tyres on the old V7.

That sounds like a great trip. Did you catch the "Rogue Warriors" episode on BBC iplayer this week about SAS action in Sicily? Very interesting.

Sounds like a great plan Dave.  I think there's also a Laverda festival in Breganze around that time.  It would be churlish not make a short detour if it coincides with your trip...Ermm

Good on you Dave. Wish I could come and ride alongside you. Only times I get to go to Italy I have to fly in.

Have a good trip.

Next time you might want to pop round my place near Brindisi. I can supply the brushcutter, chainsaw, food and wine. Big smile

Sounds like it should be a very enjoyable trip.
Last year when I travelled to Italy with my wife on the Norton, we took the Motorail only one way from Dusseldorf to Verona. It runs overnight and you share a cabin with "others" so it's pot luck who you get. Luckily we got some really nice people, two Dutch and a Swedish chap.
 
Much as I love being and going to Italy, last year was the first time on my bike, and what surprised me is the poor condition of the roads. Pot holes and repairs everywhere except the motorway. We had a great time still.

When are you going? I'll be there n May, though with a group on a coach. I went a few years ago and loved the place, and am looking forward to seeing a lot more of it.

Sorry to hear that your lovely lady isn't at her best Shaun.I hope she makes a speedy recovery.Breganze will still be there next year mate.Maybe a couple of Guzzi rallies by way of compensation.....?
