Lamps from Northern Italy

Hi everybody, I'm a long time rider and my last one is a '11 vstar950 which I enjoy both to commute and to travel.
I learnt something ripping off and reassembling the whole engine because of the drivebelt bearing failure, here to share tips.
I travelled through US states along the route66 on '13, been intense journey.. quite often I catch myself still dreaming when driving straight roads under the sun 🙂

Benvenuti! I travel a lot with my job and I was in Italy last year. I got to see Rome and Milan. When I travel I try to think about riding a motorcycle in those places and I think Italy looks like it would have some amazing roads to travel on a bike!

Welcome from Vermont and New England. My daughter visited Italy a part of her degree in Fine Arts/Art History, & Ceramics - she loved it! Best part for the rest of the family? She returned knowing how to make a real Pizza Margherita, Panzanella, all about Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and how to drink wine! Most of our best rides end with a great meal!
