Back from Holidays in Italy!
« on: August 29, 2012, 02:57:48 pm »
I'm back from my holidays in the center of Italy, as per my previous post http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=10199.0.

I've been asked to postsome pics: I'm lazy at taking snapshots, but I took a few specifically for you! ;)

First, the bike (still have to go under the brake pedal recall, BTW...)




The village where I stayed during my holidays



Then a comparison "C14 vs. my little nieces"...  ;D




After, gone down from the mountains to a relaxing day at the closest seaside...



Yep, that's ME !!!Look at the skulls... and at my bald, reddish, burnt "skull"!   ??? :pukeface:



Ok, OK... my wife is far better looking than me... let's recover from the shock of my snapshot ;D 8)




Ciao!
Ugo

Nice pics! That water at the beach looks fantastic! 

Um Ugo? Those are not nephews, they be nieces.    ;)

Ooops...  :-[ it's a word I don't use often in English...

But the meaning was clear!  :D

Anyway, I fixed it, thanks!  :chugbeer:

Nice pics and scenery. 

Now maybe I can get my GIVI trunk next month.   ;D

Sporttour told me GIVI takes the month of August off.  I said why didn't you order extra so you wouldn't run out.

Nice country. And thanks for skipping those European type Speedos on the beach.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

hey, ugocon,
I can't see the pictures  :-[
Did you take them out or is it my computer?
BTW, I was in Milano just 2 weeks ago, under 41°C. I parked the bike on the shadow and it was 35°C!!! 8 pm, in the evening!!!
I had to make a stop in Salo' by Lago di Garda on my way back to Munich (Monaco di Baviera, right?) and pay a visit to the icecream shop at the Duomo Plaza 8)
Build bridges, not walls.

Education is important. Riding my bike is importanter.

Ciao Martin.
No, the pics are there.
Perhaps your IP cannot access the one where the pics are hosted, that is http://www.atwsixpack.com/
(a site where I'm doing a world tour with Flight Simulator... ;))

I've never been on the lakes in northern Italy but I know they're wonderful: my son went there this spring and he liked Garda very much!
Yep, it's been very hot here this summer  >:(

It must be something on your end Martin, I can still see the pics as well.
