team orson managed to get one last ride in before winter’s icey tendrils gripped the Italian landscape. We decided to stay close to home and explore the Italian Lake district in the foothills of the Alps. After retrieving my Guzzi from Moto Guareschi in Parma, we made our way north via the backroads under sunny blue skies.
The first lake encountered would be Lake Garda. The southern end of the lake is a bit touristy, including the kitschy Gardaland, an italian takeoff on Disneyland. However, once you head north along the lake shore, you encounter many quaint villages, some with their own medievel castles.
I’m a Canadian ex-pat working in the oil exploration industry. I’m currently employed in Saudi Arabia and decided to take advantage of the opportunity to travel as much of the world as I can. I keep a motorcycle stored in Europe and take trips on it every chance I get.
This blog is a collection of motorcycle trips I have taken over the years. I hope these reports entertain and/or inspire you to take a trip of your own. Feel free to post your comments and suggestions.... full info
