Nice, when are you going?

I've got a tour to Italy next month with my brother and a good pal. Riding over the Alps from Austria and down to a tiny village east of Naples where our pal's family originate from. I can't wait. We're calling at Ducati on the way down...the other two are riding BMWs so they might not get in

Thanks Mario! I've been to Italy 28 times by my reckoning, but the last time was about 27 years ago, so like Don the OP, I'm super excited to be going back. I had a slim chance of moving to live in Italy when I was 16, but didn't take it. It's one of my regrets in life.

@JStrube & @djcmx49...if you have the time, try to take a crash course in Italian. It's an amazing language, fairly close to Spanish in the words, just pronounced a little differently. I know we did before heading to Italy a few years ago and it helps to know a few words and phrases in the native tongue. Heck, that's how I ended up with "CASPITA" on my plates

So you are going to ride across Italy from north to south? It sounds like an awesome plan...we can say “Caspita!”

Doing the Ducati Dream Tour again on 13 September. Starts at the factory in Bologna for 4 days riding. Great choice of bikes, Diavel, Monster (big and small), SS, Multi (big and small) and Scrambler. An all time great experience.
