Talking Riding in Tuscany

I am so fortunate that my job is to ride a BMW R1150GS in Tuscany (that is in Italy, which, as you might know, is in Europe). Now that I have a decent digital camera, a GPS and Google Maps, it is time for me to start collecting my riding experiences at one place.

I ride (almost) exclusively on-road, but people have been building roads here continously for (more than) 3.000 years, so there are quite a few to choose from. In fact, Tuscany is only about 200 x 200 km (that would be 120 x 120 miles) but we have 28.000 km (18.000 miles) of paved roads. There are 19 other Regions here in Italy in case I get bored around here.

To give you a taste of what is coming, here is a picture I took yesterday in the Appennini (I have no idea how that is spelled in English, Appeninni mountains?).

In addition I happen to like good wine and good food, and you will have to endure some pictures of that as well (in those cases I eat very well during a ride, that is).
Hope to see you here as I fill this thread with reports.

Here are some reports that have been well received:
