Bucket trip - Misano MotoGP, San Marino, Varese (MV Factory Tour), Cinque Terre

So my business partner who runs Allemano Time in Italy casually asked when I was going to Europe again so we could talk. Tickets were so cheap for the Misano race weekend I booked it and worried about logistics later. Allemano Time is one of the sponsors of the Forward Racing Moto2 MV Agusta endeavor and so myself and a guest (a fellow forum member) were granted a weekend in the paddock and even a special Italian anniversary dinner (over 5 hours long!) at the beach thrown for the team owner. Paddock passes are great but my partner was able to secure a staff pass so we watched Q2 from the infield at turn 1, literally 3 feet from the edge of the track. A factory tour was also setup for us, where we were accompanied by two Allemano employees. Here are some highlights of the trip, including an excellent lunch stopover at London Heathrow where we shared some duty free Macallan Quest with another fellow forum member. Beautiful country, great food, incredibly kind and generous people. I am perpetuating the reason why this forum was created, and what a good time was had by fellow forum MV Agusta enthusiasts. I have hundreds of paddock pics and stuff like the Coliseum but those are boring. Hope you enjoy these!

I think they'll start winning races if they can get their hands on some Muzzy fans.

You mean on the Moto2 bike?
Did he mention what needs to be improved on the bike to become a point scoring bike race after race without having the need of others crashing?

Improvement is clearly visible, compared to start of season.

Yes, moto2, and no, didn't mention that. Manzi was around after but I didn't talk to him.
