Did this ride many times last year on a t-max, a load of fun. Thanks for the memory jog. Did you rent out of Napoli?

Thanks for your comments.

We rented from CIMT out of Rome. Recommend them highly (CIMT.it)

I just stumbled on this post today. My wife and I should be riding that route on May 7 as part of a CIMT tour, so your video confirms everything I had hoped for.

We got the list of participants this week. Any familiar names?

  • Selden + Pamela riding two-up on a BMW F700GS coming from Georgia, USA
  • Stephen + Carol riding a BMW R1200GS coming from Alberta, Canada
  • Bill + Kathie riding a BMW R1200R coming from Washington State, USA
  • Jeff + Connie riding a BMW R1200RS coming from New Mexico, USA
  • Anthony DiOrio riding a BMW R1200RT coming from New York, USA
  • Tony DiOrio riding a Ducati Scrambler 800 coming from Boston, USA

I chose the F700GS because I fell in love with that model during a demo ride a few years ago, so this will be a 2-up extended test ride. After watching the Amalfi coast video, I'm pleased with my choice — narrow Italian streets with hairpin turns are not a good match for a big motorcycle ridden by a small person.

If the F700GS works out for the two of us, I suspect I'll be putting my 1999 RT up for sale later this year. It's just becoming too much of a handful for someone my size and age, especially 2-up. In the meantime, we're trying to get in as much seat time as possible between now and when we leave for Italy.

Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.
