90 curves in six minutes

If you are tired of riding straight ahead, you might enjoy watching six minutes of my ride yesterday.
I rode in Piemonte (Piedmont?), Italy.
The film shows going uphill from Spigno Monferrato towards Brallo.

The 06:30 film features no less than 90 curves.
When riding a fully loaded 1150 GS, taking a curve every few seconds requires some work.

In any case, enjoy.

The 1150GS is not ideal.
But I could have been worse!

The whole time I was watching that I imagined driving it in a 1989 Chevy S10 with the 2.5l 4banger, manual transmission, no power steering, and a 13" Grant GT steering wheel.

I think I've discovered what hell is.

Type Spigno Monferrato into Google Maps. It is the road that goes upwards from the Stazione Ferravie (railway station).

Wow, and you had the road to yourself! I'm envious.
