A key element of this journey was to visit Mandello Del Lario on Lake Como for the 95th birthday of Moto Guzzi.
An estimated 25,000 guzzista visited for the birthday celebrations
But discovering, seeing Lake Como nestled in the high mountains was the icing on the cake.
Or was the trip to Bergamo the icing????
So first to the Moto Guzzi the marque with the factory above the village of Mandello over looking Lake Como.
History on display
Custom bikes to the individual taste
In the mountains around the lake there are many villages and towns.
Bergamo is one
The old part of the town, the Citta Alta providing views of the villas on the hills from the terraced restaurants and cafes.
It was hot on Lake Como
My bike is a Moto Guzzi Breva
Breva is the name of the light breeze that blows over Lake Como
At the end of a hot day the Breva provided welcome cool relief
And a ghosting breeze for the sailors.
