The Appian Way one of the oldest highways in the world, riding along it was a pretty cool experience there was only a few sections i wasnt allowed on and got told not to ride a few others of course after I had done it . It was built in 312 bc so a fair while ago.






You can imagine all the thousands that got crucified along this road in the past.












Come on surely I wouldnt of been the first bloke to have a piss along this road in 23 hundred years.

Im probably guilty of using my back brakes more than I should but serioulsy even a mentally challenged fool like myself could replace them in 5 minutes so it just makes it easierin the long run.

Was time to blow this candy pop stand called Rome and head north we werent exactly sure where we were going but we were heading to Spain so anywhere north of here will be fine. In the end we rode all the way to Genoa the home of Christopher Colombus, heres his little pad from all those years ago. Genoa is a really nice City the waterfront is excellent and although we only spent such a short time here its a place I would definatly come back too at some point.










Why not just pull up in the middle of the road for a photo







Scooter heavan











































Time to leave Genoa and head down the coast
















































Monaco Maccas

Spent a nice day or so around this neck of the woods but ill have to dig out the photos they are somewhere in the computer but buggered if I know where its all got a little confusing lately we seem to be taking a lot more photos than I was by myself. We hit the road on the way west and south into Spain again not sure where too and how far we were going to get but ended up in Montepellior in some shitty hotel which wasnt one we were going to stay at more than the night so up and at em in the morning and off to Andorra and WOW what a ride it turned out to be riding up into the Pyrenees, ill let the pictures tell the story but needless to say it was an amazing part of the adventure and another challenge faced. The riode started nice enough but once we turned up into the hills towards Andoora the rain and weather set in, enjoy the photos we enjoyed the ride as difficult as it was.






Theresa a train that goes up into the Pyrenees and it must be an amazing ride its actually quite steep with bridges across the gorges.
