Thanks for making my point SouthWade!

Here is yours which is about 1600 sq miles (40x40 miles)

Vs central Italy about 625 sq miles, or less than 1/2 the area you mapped

Vs N Italy same 625 sq mile scale

And I can move N-E-Sor W of these captures and it looks the same. I have been with several riders there for the first time, and think they know what to expect and every one is completely blown away. Yes we have some good roads, but there is THOUSANDS in the Alps, and considering the entire Alps chain would fit in 1/2 of Colorado! So take EVERY great road in N America, and move it to an area 1/2 the size of CO, and you get the idea.
