Favorisca patente e libretto.

That is one of the most soul-crushing things you can hear on an Italian road.

Thankfully though, this lovingly restored Moto Guzzi Nuovo Falcone 500 belongs to my friend Brian, and is no longer in the hands of the fuzz:

This bike has never looked this good I'm sure, and I'm glad to see it complete with its lovely panniers...

Enjoy the Falcone Brian, just remember you might want to cover up that insignia next time you're down this side of the border!

Season's greetings!

I'm dreaming of a white Alpinweiß Christmas...

International Mountain Day

From a brisk 1,477 meters above sea level, the airheads wish you a happy International Mountain Day, and would like to remind you that all mountains are sacred places of mystical worship, pilgrimage and rituals; so no littering!

Once again, to paraphrase Henry Beston, "we need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of mountains".
