    Welcome to the forum!
    Never been to Italy. I hear you need good riding skills to survive the traffic
    Enjoy the forum.

    I've been to many places in Italy. I think my favorite is Sicily. I could go back there anytime. Emilio-Romagna is #2 and Naples is #3. For wine, and walking around, I thought Tuscany was the best.

    I looked at your list of rides, and think that 152K kilometers is about 94K miles on your R1200RT. Still very impressive on a bike with servo-assisted brakes!

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    In fact I had to revise the ABS modulator at 105K kilometers ... 750

    Bienvenue from Montreal, Canada. I'm planning to fly into Milan next year so i can rent / ride that Stelvio pass and enjoy your mountains and countryside, and wine, and beer, and people, and food....

    Welcome, I just returned three weeks ago from your part of the world. Wonderful mountain passes and I was wishing I was on a motorcycle. The weather was perfect for most of the days I was there.
    Enjoy the forum!!!

    Well, I've been to Milan, Tennessee. That's as close to Milan, Italy as I'll ever get.
