13 Dic. 2011 THE WONDERS OF SICILY - ITALY

Hello boys
.. day off, beautiful sunny day, temperatures between 16 and 21 degrees, much like motion. At 09.30 we start wandering through the provinces of Palermo and Agrigento. Four lakes, 6 km off-road and magnificent scenery. Today, Sicily has given its best .. a wonder! Pending the report talk about the pictures ..!
ALL THE PHOTOS HERE

Thanks for posting the pics. I used to spend a lot of time in Sicilia. It's a really beautiful place. I wish I had had the chance to to explore it by motorcycle.

Do you have any pictures of Geep? I tell people about the Geep herds there but I'm not sure they believe me.

A cross between a goat and a sheep. Surely you've seen them there.

Beautiful exhibit of my heritage(not the donkey's). My grandparents are from Vallelunga Pratameno. I've never been to Italy, but is on the 'must do's'. My son saw Europe last summer and got to spend a few days on Sicily. He managed to rent a scooter out of Palermo and get down to V.P. and found my grandparents home that they lived in over 100 years ago.

Thanks for posting the great shots. Some of the pics remind me of our central coast here in California.

Look forward to seeing more of Sicily!

usually it's mine, generally off center so subject matter can be seen properly.
but then, that's just me. i dig the shit out of my bike and like to look at the pics if i can't ride.

makes for great screensavers, i change mine all the time....

just sayin'
