desmobabe Ήταν πιο εύκολο να πάω αεροπορικώς κ να δανειστώ μηχανή εκεί αφού πήγα μόνη μου σε αυτό το ταξίδι, άσε που είχα κ περισσότερες μέρες στην Γαλλία έτσι

Matt, May is a little difficult as I will have my Swiss and Italian Ducatisti friends visiting for some group desmofun but August isn't out of the question. We'll talk closer to the time

My bro in law and I might be taking the bikes to Mugello next May, or Brno in August. You guys down?

desmobabe I just got back from a street party at the classic motorcycle club of my city, I really wish I had an old duc to pull up with, a Pantah or an old 900ss. Who knows, maybe in the future... After all those beers though maybe it's best I didn't handle any heavy machinery hehe

Thanks for the feedback, I hope I have many more desmotrips to post in the near future

Weekend riding highlights will include the infamous Route Napoleon, the loop around the Verdon Gorge (the world's second largest gorge), the Gorges du Loup and the magnificent views from the ancient perched village of Gourdon, the track-like Route des Adrets (my favorite stretch of twisting asphalt on the French Riviera), the Golden Coast, the Corniches of the Riviera between Nice and Menton, etc.

Note that if you're tired of being a pillion rider, Ducati rental motorcycles are available at preferential rates at http://www.columbus-international.com/ in Cannes.

Cheers!
Merci John

Max, thanks for the invite! Unfortunately I can't get away from work right now to return for some more Desmofun in France
From the places you mention I did the Verdon Gorge (it was such an amazing road going through there with the forest and river following us) and stopped at a few key points along there, I also went to Gourdon. I don't remember the names of all the places (hey, it was 15 days ok? ) so it's possible I saw some more places in your route plan.
Luckily I wasn't a pillion rider for all the trips but I definitely would bring my own bike next time or arrange before-hand to have a bike waiting for me there so I can ride ALL the routes myself!
Desmoriders united all over the world!!!
