Italian trip next year (2008) UK

Ok, so who would be interested in a ride to Italy next year from the UK. I have got a few MV owners who are interested. Its a great journey, especially going through the Alp passes etc. Mont Blanc is breathtaking. I will also organise a van and driver so luggage can be placed onboard etc. We can visit the factory or other parts of north Italy.

I have already given a little thought to making a factory visit next year - that is to say I have gone as far as printing out a map showing where the factory is, so I would be interested possibly. My work schedule is fixed for the whole of next year. With other holidays already planned I only have available late May and early September.

I don't know yet the MotoGP / World Superbike schedule but I would like to take in some race meeting on the way there or back.

For me the route would be by ferry from Edinburgh to Zeebrugge so it would be relatively easy to travel most of the way on the wrong side of the road.

I will watch with interest to see what develops.

I can't say just yet where I'll be or what I'll be doing next year (lots going on business-wise and at home) but this trip sounds amazing.

Well if we can get a group of us together it should be good fun. It will certainly be interesting riding a sports bike all that way and back again. I will calculate the distance and time etc.

Yeah I think Italy would really be great fun. Its a bit of a slog on an F4, but should be fun.

I'd love to do this but I doubt that I'm physically capable (bad back). About 100 miles is all I can comfortably do on the MV, that's not much use on a foreign trip!
