I don't think you need it. However I have asked and I will let you know.
Remember it is Italy and not Swizerland...at the end o the day

Haha yes very true . One of the guys is getting a bit anxious about tbe form. I told him forget it. It can be sorted out on the day if needed. We will bring the payment confirmation though.

Team mate

Hi Norton, Maybe a chance that 'fluf' - Rob might need a team mate according to Nic. I'm with Nic, 'DrLC8' and if you need any info text him on 0044 07980189469.

Hope you sort something ...

A big THANK YOU from team "Touring Twats" to all involved especially Nic and Corrado for all the contact and organisation.

We really enjoyed ourselves despite major mechanical problems on 2 of the bikes which caused some anxious moments.

Roll on to next year .

This was a great event and is well named "Hard Alp Tour ".Everyone we met including organisers other entrants and the people of the area were so friendly, helpfull and at the same time completly laid back.
Here are some photos wich don't do any justice to the scenery in the area.

Haha... well!

We all had some issues.

I had a small off and snapped rear brake lever tip off and wrecked the bearings on the cleanspeedeng lever. Think ill just take bearings out and put a phosphor bronze bush in instead.. oh and a folding lever tip. Ill weld an extra guard onto the AS bash plate too.

Mark had a rattle for a few days when he looked found that 3 out of 4 eng mount bolts were loose, 1 was hanging out, nut was missing.

He then had a rad leak as there is a solid link between the rad and engine and rad was cracked.

Other guys rear wheel bearing collapsed wrecking the hub. That was gashed by wrapping the bearings in sheet brass and lots of loctite. It lasted the whole trip and prob will for thousands kms more.

Ill get some pics and vid up tomorrow.
