What a trip!

I just returned from an incredible motorcycle tour in Italy and France. We were a group of 5 renting from a great company ( Columbus International) based out of Cannes, France. They met us at the airport delivering the bikes and picked them up from our final destination in Grimaud, France. Briefly, rode to Lucca, then to Florence for 2 nights, up to Mugello for MotoGP, then Futa Pass was fantastic, off to Padova then 2 days in Bellagio with a tour of the MV factory in Varese. Our guide, Marco, was great! Randy, can I invite him to the Bub? I saw current CEO but didn't get a chance to meet him as he was very busy as things get crazy before they close for August. I'll post some pics! I was aboard a new Multi, my brother on a BMW F800R, we also had the Duke 690 and BMW R1200 GS. My friend who rode down from Paris met on his Griso 1200. The first picture is Marco and I in front of #1 F4CC.

Thumbs up Epic Masis!

So, you are home now? That sounds like an awesome trip.

Let me know your transportation needs for the Bub...since Carl bailed for GA.

(Should have brought the Oro home in a carry on!)

I'm thinking of hiring bikes off those guys next year and doing a similar trip. Looks like a great time had by all.

Does my bum look fast on this?
