Day Five

After a tremendous day of riding in the Dolomites with my new fiance!! we had a plan to head south....
my company has an office in Torbole, and every fall we have our sales meeting there. I had been a couple of years ago, and being as it's a beautiful place, I wanted to show Michelle.

the plan



ready baby?
(I'd brought her bike around from the garage and carried down the luggage (who says an old dog can't learn new tricks?)



bye Dolomites, I would stay forever if I had the chance



railing south.. damn its warm





Kevin will love this: blind Greg + road closed + Garmin detour = PRICELESS!



ok, almost sorted



on the road again



Castles



Michelle leading









Vivi La Vita... yup, you betcha... how can you not when the country is so beautiful?



close to Lago di Garda.. but not yet





we finally make it in to town. we actually have a RESERVATION!! at Hotel Santoni (the place we stay during the sales meetings). A really cool place, nice bar at night and great breakfast.

we realize 30+ C and long pants =
so we go into town & grab some suitable clothes

sunset at Garda







I think I have brought Michelle to the most beautiful place in the world!

not a crazy long day, and no real passes to speak of... but we had a damn good time. I have video of Michelle passing trucks like an Italian (aka Lunatic) but that will have to wait.
