Wandering around Florence tonight stumbled upon the st. Marco music festival and saw a plastic tank V7 with high arrow pipe exhaust. Anybody on the board?

I understand that is pretty much the way it is and how it has been. Germany is Guzzi's biggest market, for whatever reason.

By the way...not just Germany, but it's neighbor The Netherlands is also a HUGE Guzzi market... :wink: :thumb: :cool:

Hello from Florence..... We leave tomorrow, heading west to do some hike along the coast through 5 villages? Been averaging 9-11 miles per day walking, and 5x that in calories.

I highly recommend http://www.trattoriabilly.com/ in Manarola when you do walk in Cinque Terre. That is the middle town of the 5. Doesn't matter which direction you start from it's the middle town and the food is remarkable.
