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!

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

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.
