Passo Pordoi, Italy - where Ducs and BMW’s are

Currently spending the summer vacation in Italy. Drove down from Scandinavia by car with the lady and kids. On the way to Lake Garda we made a tour around the Dolomites which I would reccommend to anyone that wants to feel one with his bike and test some cornering skills. Coming down through the Brennero pass when you reach Chiusa you head towards Ortosei and Val Gardena. This part is nice for warm up with lots of tight bends and corners. From Val Gardena you head towards Canazei. This is where it gets really exciting as you go over Passo Pordoi at 2200 mtrs. Bikers are out in flocks with heavy overrepresentation by Ducatis and BMWs batteling hairpin after hairpin. From Canazei head for Carezza and Nova Levante and end up in Bolzano with app. 100 km on the tachymeter. Take your time to also stop for some of the scenic views along the way. Recommend stopping in Val Gardena, Passo Pordoi and at the small lake outside Carezza (lago di Carezza) from where I took below The route has plenty of inns and places to eat or sleep if needed, but it is crowded so a reservation is much likely needed Click image for larger version

I spent 10 days in the Dolomites 3 years ago. Of you like hairpin corners and lots of hills and twisties you can't beat it.

No bikes in these pictures but you'll get the idea -




I also managed to do a trip to Venice, a visit to Ducati Veneztia and had to get a new chain fitted at Ducati Beluno.

Capone, thanks for posting your trip recommendations.

Iím thinking heading north to Lago di Garda might be more enjoyable than riding south to Passo della Futa.

I might be able to do both since Iíve requested two full days with one of hp motorradís SuperSports.

Iíve also asked them for trip recommendations so weíll see what they have to offer.

So, lemme get this straight.

I twist this little tube, it gets loud, I go forward really fast and it makes me smile...is that how it all works?

Nice trip! I rode 600km in a day up and down in that mountains when I got my SS, it's her territory, I enjoyed it even if I was in the break in so I had to take care about the revs.

Pordoi, Sella, Falzarego, San Pellegrino (just to name some) are all awesome places for riding, both for the corners and for the landscape, 20 years ago all the area was like a big race track, nowadays speed checks has been intensified a lot.
