    anybody around in PIEMONT /ITALY End of May 2012?

    We (2 or 3 990 Adv) are going to ride the most popular off-road trips in Piement (depending on snow situation) during 2 weeks starting with 24.05.2012.

    Would be nice to meet you.

    I use to ride there each year, but not on May as the snow is usually too much!

    I think I will be there the second/third week of august or in July but just for a week end.

    Check my website below if you need further information, I'm working to compklete the english version

    Yes thats the risk, above 1900 masl and north side of the moutain could be snowy.
    But we normaly are then allone and no "closed" ways.

    Last year/May Liguria we met 3 bikers in the mountains in 2 weeks!

    What you mean is understood, that's why I prefer to ride on July. The important is not to go on August, in Italy is holiday time. In July there's few snow (or none) and less people
