What comes to mind when you hear the words "Italian motorcycle"? Ducati? Moto Guzzi? What about Gilera, Benelli, or Laverda? Italy has a rich motorcycle history and has been producing unique and beautiful bikes for years, but here in the United States many people aren't familiar with Italian brands outside of Ducati and Moto Guzzi—many are not even familiar with the smaller single-cylinder offerings of these two brands. Hugo Gallina, owner of Vintage Italian Restoration in Southern California, has been building and restoring Italian bikes out of his garage for years.

Your perception of life from the seat of a motor vehicle, whether it be an XJ-12 or a Ducati 998, is absolutely awesome. You have the ability to see the good in what others fear and you are rewarded with terrific experiences that you generously share with the rest of us.

This is absolutely tremendous!! It makes me slightly ashamed that I only did 3000 miles this year…
