Thumbs up Bologna, Imola, ..Classic MV's, Ago, Steve Baker, Read.. Great time had by all..

.
Hi Guys & Girls.

Got back last week from our annual pilgrimage to the Classic Bike revival meeting at Imola..

We had a great time and boy was the weather hot !!. I had no idea Italy could be so hot this time of year..

Did the usual Ducati museum tour, as itís just round the corner from Bologna airport, but the factory itself was closed to visitors this time.. I suspect itís because they are gearing up to produce the new superbike model.

Finally got to meet Steve Baker (one of my childhood heroís), Ago and Read in the paddock and blagged a signature of them.

Unfortunately, King Kenny wasnít there this year, which is a great shame, as the event was celebrating Yamahaís 50th anniversary..

Imola put on a great show and I recommend you guys put it on your to do this for next year..

We had some fantastic food and gallons of gelatoís.. I must have put on half a stone in 5 days..

Highly recommend the hotel Zio in Imola as the place to stay and the ristoranteTavernetta in the Centro Storico and ristorante Pizzeria in via case di Dozza as places to eat.. Great food and good, cheap plonk.

Took hundreds of pictures and here are just a few..

The first few pictures are of central Bologna, the local talent and the trip to the Ducati factory ..

Hope you enjoy them.

John
