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...
Dear Family & Friends,Today we left Milan after a very enjoyable visit. I decided to lead this time because I was tired of Duane getting us lost..... so I only made three wrong turns and got us lost all on my own!!... :( ,but we did make it. My excuse is in the big city the tall buildings block the GPS...
Dear Family & Friends,What started out this morning as a simple 1 hour ride to Milan turned into a three hour marathon...  Duane was leading with his trusty GPS and some how continued to get us lost. Now a GPS is a great help in Europe but it does have it's limitations... First it gives you accurate names of...
 Off to Lake Como tomorrow to visit a new friend who lives in the area and will give us a tour of the Alps! Fun, Fun, Fun... There is where we are going to stay, he made the reservations there.... Who says motorcycling has to be roughing it.. :)


 We arrive at the Holy Grail of Ferraris! Even a Ferrari bus! No one could explain to me what a Lambo was doing here??? An assortment of wind tunnel test models in half scale.. The assortment of OEM Ferrari colors... now you know.. The real class, a SWB 250GT... Duane and his hook her... The poor girl was terrified! Ferrari has certainly won their fair share...

 The coastal views along the road from Nice to Genova A tribute to Ghandi in Italy? A statue full of female body parts, I am not sure what it means but it looks very Italian! I guess Janis Joplin is still popular in Italy... ;)Ciao da Firenze ( Hello from Florence!)Dear Family & Friends,One week and 1600 miles down and tonight we...

A Day in Monaco!
