The 125Route67 was perhaps the best ride ever organised by the 125 Club Italia. Not for the company, which was always excellent. Not for the number, since on average our rallies are far more numerous. Not for the weather, which was the worst that could happen to us. No. The 125Route67 was an incredible rally because for the first time ever we organised an event with a start in one place and a finish in another. A sort of Cannonball where you had to cross Italy (in width) in the shortest possible time. Let's leave it to the words of our own Jim Moore, editor of the well-known British magazine http://www.practicalsportsbikesmag.co.uk, to tell us about this wonderful experience that We leave it to the words of our Jim Moore, editor of the well-known English magazine , to recount this wonderful experience, which will undoubtedly become part of the calendar of annual events that cannot be renounced and are exclusive to 125 Club Italia members.
A small note: the victory went to the Jap team captained by our member Mauro who, together with Eugenio and Fabio, did really well. Crossing Italy in six hours on a 125cc, with tons of freezing rain pouring down on them for almost the entire journey, is no mean feat! But But our guys were fast, organised and professional: they wouldn't have looked out of place at a Le Mans 24-hour race and, particularly important given that we're all in our 40s or thereabouts, they always drove in total safety.
And what about the bikes? They all arrived at their destination without any technical problems. If anything, the hard work was after washing them... an operation that, given the accumulated dirt, required the removal of all the superstructures. But the happiness of having completed such an undertaking was such that we would all do it again straight away!
Finally, a big thank you goes to our Member Riccardo who, although unfortunately unable to attend, is always the brains behind every Club initiative.
W the 125 Club Italia!
