    Gravel roads in the Piemontese Alps , Italy .
    Maira-Stura ( names of rivers ) 15 km ,with some friends.
    Strada dei Cannoni ( gun road ) 30 km solo .
    I have a cheap camera, but videos are boring quickly, so just a few pics and stills :

    This is my ancestral homeland! I need to return before I go to room temperature.

    I believe my ancestral home looks very much like where I have always lived ,here in Nova Scotia ,so no long airplane rides for me just long two-wheel ones .... Wales Forever !

    Thanks for sharing Ludwig. I have to say your bike looks like the ideal tool for some of those very scary looking trails. I had to laugh when I saw the British number plates on the two sports bikes. How did they get on in that terrain?

    On a serious note - It’s almost forgotten now, but many thousands of troops, Austro-Hungarian, Italian and many displaced civilians lost their lives in that region during WW1 during what became known as “The white war”

    For what ?


    Cheers,

    cliffa.

    Actually , they go over these roads faster than me .
    They are excellent riders . but they didn't do the rougher Strada dey Cannoni ( 1st pics) for fear of their engine cases .

    Hi Ludwig, I’m sure they are very capable riders, it just made me chuckle.

    You may already know, but there is a British travel writer called Nick Sanders who rode around the World on a Yamaha R1!
