Hallo from Italy

I was just looking for something like this. It's really funny!
I live in Italy n i ride my Triumph Speed Triple '96 edition btn Rome, Florence, Siena.

All the road are amazing for riders i mean many bends n paviment always dry and clear.

I was asking my self: "What kind of road condition you have in your country?!?".

I will read this web site to have the occasion to know something about other riders.

Bye Ade

Welcome, always great to get some Euro rider's imput.

Alot of my friends in Europe forget how large the distances in Western North America are, and that the terrain varies region by region. I'm 600km from the US border, 250km east of the Rockies on the northern part of the prairies. That makes the roads here very straight and VERY BORING.

I've been through your area, and I have to agree that the Italian roads are awesome!

Most police seem to take it personally if you do more than 10 km over speed limit in the city, on the hwy you might get 15 km depending on how busy the cop is. I got stopped last week for doing 50km in a 30 zone, but I only got a warning ( it was raining and late at night ).

So you being in Italy, World Cup must have been a disaster for you. . Could be worse, you could be French ...(what a bunch of LOSERS ). My family is Dutch, so I had to cheer for Korea, they had a Dutch coach.
