The wife and I are over here in Italy on vacation. We've been two weeks and through many cities so far and have seen 1 (one) V twin!. It was a new HD V rod so chromed out that I don't know how the guy can even ride it on a sunny day. Seen a few sport bikes and a bazillion scooters. The scooter riders are crazy! Scare the hell out of me the way they zip around in traffic like yellow jackets at a picnic. I think maybe they're taxed on horse power because all the cars here are dinky too. And pedestrians definately do not have the right of way! OMG, culture shock!
