Bonus!!! Italian Lakes

Italy is Switzerland’s neighbor to the South, and so close you’ll have a chance to head over to the Italian Lake district.  Check out Bellagio or relax on the shores of Lake Como.  Tourists might want to visit the MotoGuzzi museum or see the locations where Star Wars prequels were filmed.

By far the best riding vacations I’ve ever taken.  I’m on my 3rd tour and they’ve been consistently awesome.

Our tour was outstanding.  The guides, the food, the hotels, were better than I imagined.  The riding is out of this world.  Going back for another next season.

I had a three-day weekend in Grenoble following a work-trip, and I feel like I couldn’t have made a better choice about how to spend those days. It is truly hard to imagine a more enjoyable motorcycling environment than what I found: beautiful, curvy mountain roads in every direction. The weather was perfect, every portion was a thrill. It’s hard to pick which part was the best – so many contenders! It’s motorcycle heaven.
