Italian Farkles

Just got my Aprilia mirrors and while installing them realized that most of the additions have been Italian. Hilarious, I thought. The more I looked the more Italian stuff I found. Givi side cases, Givi top case, Givi windscreen, Arrow pipe, Aprilia mirrors and a re-branded Stebel Nautilus (Wolo Badboy) horn. Everything but the horn was a direct fit/replacement which made me think about how much Italians must love motorcycles. My next ride will be a Ducati something-or-other.

Crap I've bolted on...(that didn't vibrate off) thanks Versys Forum

I like the food nearly as much as the Multistrada and other Ducati models too.. and equally to the women and wine in unhealthy proportions.
Valentino Rossi comes to mind now that we mention all things great from Italy.
Yes I like Italian stuff very much indeed, yes indeed I like very much too..

Garage
The Multistrada has been drawing me in lately.

Looks like a bike that could replace my Concours and Versys. Going to be in El Paso and will check out the huge multi brand dealer and sit on some bikes.

My old man has had a ~2006 Multistrada 620 for a number of years. Great bike, a bit of a bear on maintenance but still fun. The most notable thing is the sound though...oh my what a sound!
