Tour of Central Italy on 2010 Ducati Multistrada
« on: December 27, 2010, 09:29:22 pm »
Hi Riders, I recently went on a trip with through central Italy organised by a tour operator. The trip was a tour of the area ending off at the SBK at Imola. However, we rode on the new Multistrada  the whole 1800 kms. Although not an off road adventure, it was a wonderful way to see Tuscany, Emiglia Romanga and Umbria provinces of Italy in September. I will be posting the trip and pics. So enjoy.

Look forward to your trip details.

I am planning one in June but heading South from Rome to Sicily along the Amalfi coast. Still deciding on which bike to rent so any advice is appreciated. BTW I'm taking my good lady so that has to be factored in (know what I mean).

Try to get a Moto Guzzi Norge or Stelvio - both 1200 cc and great touring bikes.
Or the Aprilia Capo Nord. Not bad either...

Hmmmm, hadn't considered that. Thanks I will take a look. My flights have been booked. Will be reserving the bike shortly.
