'Round the World with an Italian Supermodel

My journey first started two years ago with "Coast to Coast with an Italian Supermodel." But despite all the months and the miles, I can’t find a clear break between hitting the 'ignite' button on my Ducati 1199 S in 2012 at Ducati Newport Beach for the first time and hitting it at Ducati Milano yesterday. Each day blends into the next and every decision that led me here seems superimposed on the one prior. Hopefully I have enough time to explain everything that happened in-between then and now.

In any case, “'Round the World with an Italian Supermodel” officially begins.

You travel super light, in more ways than one! No luggage?

In. The ride continues! Congrats, AH!! I think back to one of your early posts in C to C with an Italian Supermodel, where you spoke of that trip entailing a transformation. It has been and continues to be, a great honor and privilege to be allowed to see that transformation as it happens. Unlimited thanks! And the very best of wishes!

heh, heh.....Europe is bound to have some signage that suggest humorous interpretations.........

Great news and safe travels my friend. I think back to the days when I first found "coast to coast with an Italian supermodel" and recall how many great hours reading and deep thinking I got from reading that RR. If this trip is anything like the last one we're in for a great ride along with you, vicariously at least!

May you find all that you are looking for and above all, enjoy it!

DD

P.s. That's a nice bike behind yours at the Duc dealer
