Video of London to Rome Road Trip

This is my video of my recent road trip from London to Rome (and back again), for the Harley-Davidson 110th anniversary rally.

What a great trip that was. We rode in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria and Italy, on some of the best roads in Europe.

Write up of the trip to follow.....

Great video Gary. You had a little bit of everything - sunshine, snowy passes, phenomenal twisties and...... zombies!!

I am looking forward to the write up.

Trobairitz - I expected to see most of those things, but I have to admit, the zombies were a surprise! It was truly great riding.

That was a great video! What time of year was the ride? I was surprised to see the snowy passes. The zombies, well it was a HOG event...

Richard - We left London on 6th June and got back on 23rd. There was a lot more snow on the ground on the way out than the return journey. It was touch and go on the way out if some of the passes would be open as they were still clearing the snow. Stelvio Pass is at over 9000 feet but very exposed in a very tall mountain range.

Richard - I forgot to say, the Zombies were not at the HOG event, but we saw them in a city in northern Italy by chance! There were maybe 200 people dressed up and I have to say it was very cool. We asked what is was for, to be given a great answer "Because it is fun!"

Great video Gary. Will you be posting your route in your write-up? Some of those roads look awesome!

Gary France said...

Charlie6 – Stelvio is a road that everyone should ride if they get the chance, but you have to pick your timing carefully. It is only open for a few months a year, normally three, when there is no or little snow. The zombies were strange, but very cool at the same time.

Canajun – Thanks. I will mention some of them in the write up.
