For all you doubting thomas,s out there, i made it in one piece with all my luggage and the bike still running :D. The ride down was fab, took loads of detours around gorgeous twisty roads, the mountains in the south were just incredible,stunning gentle bends, massive cliff drops and sharp hairpins that scared me sh**less! :w00t: :w00t:
Still got chicken strips but they are only little and i appear to have learnt to turn left as at least they are now even on both sides :hehe:
Spent some time in a small italian village where i got a personal one to one 4 hour tour of the area by the mayor (he spoke no English - eek!) and drank all night for free in one of the bars :P.
Have arrived in Livorno and it appears that there are currently no kids classes for me (:):):)), but am infact teaching at an italian military school in pisa and taking a class of italian builders - rough and ready, all male, in uniform and italian - beats teaching kids i reckon
Nice one, I wish I could make such a trip one day.
Re chicken strips, always remember that at least you know you;re in the comfort of not being at the maximum lean angle and there’s more for when you need it.
Excellent, sounds like you are having a great time Ruff n ready Italian builders you say? :w00t: eep! Men in uniform? Sounds like heaven.
Congrats on making it. Hope you have a great time. Ride safe and lets hear all about it when you make it back, safe and sound.
