... with our developing plan we get on the bikes and head to Cueno, our first Italian city. We have a few chores to catch up on and items to pick up, we busted the bike tire pump a few days ago, lost the pot, ran out of bug spray, and needed another bike lock. We start our day just shy of noon and ride 40 flat kilometres into the city. The rest of the day is spend into and out of stores, a few random cheap beers and finding wine in a carton again!

Feeling a bit trapped in our options, neither of us wanted to reallllllly start a climb back up the hills we just spent the day cruising down. What's the worst that can happen? ...
... road. As they roar off down the road one gleaming MultiStrada remains silent. At least ours starts, you funny *******!
As we headed off yet another string of Ducatis come howling down the road towards us, absolutely tearing up the tarmac with their backside sized rear tyres and deafening the countryside with howling Termignoni exhaust systems. Very cool.
But still you wonder, how could we have jumped the wrong way? What led us to make, what is so clearly ...
