I went to an Italian Bikes meeting during TT. I was the only Aprilia rider ther, the rest were all Ducatis and Guzzis. Felt a bit of an imposter really as nobody really seemed to consider the the Aprilia an "Italian" bike. I didn't feel I was a part of their scene. Must have something to do with the fact that it doesn't break down regularly or suffer particularly badly with poor build quality. I think it is battling against these factors that binds the Ducati and Guzzi riders together, not necessarily the fact that the bikes were made in the same country.

BTW, not in the UK - Isle of Man.

Somewhere central, somewhere easy for us all to meet, somewhere with interesting roads to ride.
How about just north of Nottingham and we'll try out the infamous Lincolnshire roads.

It is indeed I the former owner of the aforementioned Japanese 4 cylindered monstrosity, which I loved dearly, and current owner of it's remains However, having seen the error of my ways and a rather charming and loud yellow Falco at the NW200 last year I have all the relevant credentials and pissed off neighbours I now require to validate my posting on here.

You obvisually haven't seen my Jag, it like all my cars is rather old, but it is different, as for breaking down, well if it happens i am fortunate enough to be able to fix it (fuel injection wasn't around in 1964) Before anyone starts having a go it is not concourse, it is old hasn't been restored but has had a paint job (candy red)
