I'm a 23 yo boy, Francesco

23, well I think I was 23 once. By then I'd given up bikes which in wet miserable England is understandable. I more or less had 30 years off then rediscovered bikes and was amazed at how they had improved in that time, so got the bug again and never looked back.

I think I would have not survived on a bike anyway. Late 1960s there were no speed limits on main roads, not a lot of traffic, no points on your licence, so we tended drive/ride like idiots. 100 mph was the goal. We had to do The Ton ( Tonne ).

Italy in the 60s must have been the place to be. MV, Gilera, Guzzi, Ducati, Ferrari, Maserati and the rest, they were the names of gods to the English. Mille Milia I think that was the address of god.

Those were the days  :062:
I was 17 in 1981. We had speed limits but totally ignored them  :080:
