    Greetings!
    My name is Angel; I am an American female visiting Italy, Austria and possibly more on April 8 for 3+ months.

    I am hoping to find:
    -A motorcycle to borrow or rent
    -A riding partner to ride as passenger with

    I have come to Italy to make art in a historic castle in Otranto (Puglia) for 1 month. This was from Aril to May.
    Now, I am free to visit Europe!

    My goal: tour & see the best historical places, nature spots, hot springs, art museums.

    Last year I toured New Zealand for 7 months, alone, living off my motorcycle; a GN250 Suzuki Cruiser. I love motorcycles! :happay:D

    I got a friend in the very heart of Dolomites that may help you.
    If you pass through Padova I could show you some nice places - I've got also an old XT350 that could be the right bike (small, rugged) but i'm waiting a piece to fix it.

    No place for sleeping at me, but will search around.

    GiorgioXT, you rock! Thank you so much for the info.
    A 350 sounds great. I'd be good to meet you! Keep in touch and message me directly. Cheers!!

    Hi Angel! I'm a biker from Naples, South Italy. I would be more than happy to show you the beautiful places we have around here (Pompeii, Capri, the Amalfi Coast etc...) obviously with my bike (Yamaha Fazer 1000). I often go to Puglia because I have many friends there, especially in the Salento area. Otranto is wonderful!! I'm also going there one of the next weekends for a small vacation (3 or 4 days).
    Let me know!

    Ciao
    Carlo
