Bolognese blogging

After 3 days lake side in Garda it was time to move on as the rain made a valiant attempt to catch up with me. Not the best campsite in the area I'm sure but it gave me time to catch my breath after racing the weather since leaving the uk.

A fairly uninteresting ride across the flatlands of northern Italy's Po plain through Modena and slightly lost around the periphery of Bologna see's me in more entertaining countryside with typically Italian landscape wonderful scenery and the constant call of a distant cuckoo to accompany my pasta tea..

I have lots of video of the ride over the Alps and into Italy to upload when I get a decent WiFi connection. , but until then I'll keep on filming for when the opportunity arises.

Next target is the world superbike round at Imola, which is about an hours ride away so I think this is a place to sit back for a while and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Italy's rolling hills.

Chasing dreams just got chilled..

Ciao

Actually the bike is fine.. Running ok.. Need to do a bit of maintainance this week.. It was bubbling a bit in the hot weather, but didn't get an overheating warning so think its got a bit of an airlock..I changed the coolant before I left so will check it, but means taking fairings off..

Almost dropped it in the garda campsite it overbalanced as I was loading it.. Good job I'm not a lightweight lol
