moto_guzzi_classics_tour_2008Vintage Moto Guzzi aficionado Patrick Hayes of Fremont, CA has posted an awesome photo essay of his 2008 Piemonte Tour on a classic Guzzi Falcone. The photos of the Italian countryside are beautiful, and the Guzzi collections are stunning. I am envious.

I realize Europe has had 10x the number of years as the US to come to terms with their history and its importance, but I really admire the way the manage to keep so much of the old, especially in Italy. This kind of trip would truly be an event of a lifetime for someone in the US.
