Almost had an accident

I almost had a nasty accident on my travel by motorcycle from Venice back to Copenhagen, and somebody definitely had one. I left Venice just after noon on Thursday, and decided to drive through the night to get as far as possible before stopping to sleep. Everything went smoothly for about a 1000km, until approx. […]

Homeward bound

I’m on my way north now. I left Palermo Sunday evening with the ferry to Naples, from where I went by motorbike to Rome. The crossing was eventless, the ferry mostly empty. The ferry arrived in Naples early, around 6:30, and I was on the motorway before seven, as the sun rose over the Appenines. […]

Expensive motorcycle

So, now the process of importing my old motorcycle from Italy is almost over. I’ve paid the import taxes, which were more than I originally paid for the motorcycle in Italy, I have the Danish licence plate and insurance, so now I can finally enjoy having a motorcycle again.
