Huh, old Italians...need new switches before the 450 Desmo's new headlight'll fit, the new sidestand for the Darmah doesn't fit, and I took the Ferrari out and scrapped the air dam on a speed bump. Still, at least I'm doing better than poor ol' Fillipe Massa....

And then I see the British Moto GP will clash with the TT - where's the good news? Ah, here it is - Michael Schumacher's going to replace Mass at Ferrari. Could be the biggest comeback since JC rolled the stone away over 2000 years ago.

And although it's not Italian you've got to love the new Phantom Motorcycle..

Some say there are 3 sports: bullfighting, mountaineering and motor racing... the rest are just games.

But sometimes three’s a crowd.Some say racetracks are good. But top gear on a racetrack is one thing, second gear on an uphill, gravel strewn, hairpin is quite another. In times past heroes saw racing on these open roads as the ultimate challenge. Reckless, perhaps, but that’s the real reason we miss those long, hot summers.

Benzina offer clothing, accessories and gifts inspired by the passion of those heroes and the spirit of the open road... see you out there.Benzina... the spirit of the open road
