A day in the Alps!

Dear Family & Friends,If I am going to keep writing these reports I need to work on some new adjectives... what can I say, another amazing day!We left Lake Como and rode along the shore to the end of the lake where we branched off to a pass over the Italian side of the Alps.Pass may be an exaggeration, this...

One Very Long Day1

Saturday Sept. 24th.Dear Family & Friends,This was one LONG day!! Any more hours on the bike and I would have been singing “Castrati” for the SLO Opera! What was supposed to be an easy half day ride turned out to be 9 hours in the saddle.. A slight technical miscalculation on my part… I won’t go into the details....
Dear Family & Friends,   This report will be short and sweet... Our adventure is over! We are back in London safe and sound and very tired....

Dear Family & Friends,The second day of our ride and a perfect motorcycling day!We all slept in and got up for a relaxing oversize breakfast.
