    Thanks, it is a reflector that can be purchased on Amazon or eBay. I painted the original orange one black and stuck this one on top.

    The one I purchased is showing currently unavailable at a size of 3/4 x 3" which is the reflector size. The base is 23-24 mm x 80mm.

    I do see these available on EBAY, but I can't tell which side the EBAY ad is measuring, so I don't want to list the link. You can search for "Italian flag reflector" and see what comes up on either site.

    No. But I recognize it from the headlight mod.

    I'm adding to my spreadsheet of future offerings in the Flea Market. The "Never Been Down" column used to just have a checkmark in it. Then it made more sense to start putting numbers in it.:D

    Some easy tracks through the fields.

    Not all is passable, even with knobbies on your bike..

    IMG_20210404_121921.jpg

    A bit later the boat grew in size so I was able to sail along.

    I miss riding in WVa. Mom was a coal miner's daughter in Raleigh/Beckley so I've spent the equivalent of 2 years there even though I never actually resided there.

    Flashbacks to my first trip with the Guzzi.

    The day started near Milano on a campsite, time: 07:15 in the morning.

    IMG_20200710_071655892.jpg

    Riding through the Risotto fields, all flat for as far you can see, small villages here and there. In the right season you can see the heat.

    IMG_20200710_094724621.jpg

    Going into the Piedmont hills.

    IMG_20200710_102931008.jpg

    The day went on and on, and my route was way to long, it was riding, riding and riding.
    The only real stop I took was spend laying down with my eyes closed.
    The heat was starting to get to me.

    IMG_20200710_124338674.jpg


    Back in the saddle and a few hours riding later I tried crossing into France via the TET.

    IMG_20200710_151604141.jpg

    But besides the clouds the road was blocked.
    So another detour, which in the Alpes usually means an extra hour or more riding.
    I ending up in the French Alps.

    IMG_20200710_170621496.jpg

    The last picture I took that day was @ the campsite 22:02.
    The gate was all ready closed but luckily a few other guest came walking by and got the manager to open the gate for me.

    Was a good time at the Noobs rally in Death Valley earlier this month.

    One best have a large gas tank for a day's riding in DV or plan one's route carefully, not many fueling ops. In the summer wouldn't want to run out of fuel beneath the lonely desert sun. one zero zero ...
