Once in a lifetime

Next year is the 25th Anniversary of the Milano- Taranto recreation as featured in Benzina #1, and they're doing something very special.

Not only will they follow the original route as closely as possible (hey, Autostradas happen), for 2011 only they'll admit any bike up to 500cc and registered 1925 to 1965 into the prestigious Storica class. Not got an eligible bike? Then try the sport class for absolutely any 1966 to 1986 bike. Ten classes in each mean mopeds and scooters are as welcome as big Guzzis and Laverdas.

Read more courtesy of Google translate here, or try the original Italian here.

Dates are 3 to 9 July for a 1900km journey of a lifetime. We're 90% certain we can do this, with a truck taking bikes to Milan and collecting in Taranto. Flights are do-able, and there are group discounts. I'm also pretty certain you'll be riding with some famous names, as well as making friends that will last a lifetime. If you're up for it, email me -
