      Amalfi coast is one of the most touristic area of the south of Italy. It is famous for the cliff side towns and roads challenging the gravity law:

      and never ending twisty roads:

      and colorful towns:

      The roads are likely to be clogged during the week-end, but we were lucky because the weather forecast predicted few showers which actually did not occurred. So not so much people planned to go there during the last week-end.

      While the elite pushes for ecological transition and electric engines, I enjoy the power of a 1200cc 4 strokes engine fed by 4 x 40mm. carburetors.

        No matter an air cooled 2005 BMW R1200GS:

        or a liquid cooled 2003 Kawasaki ZZR 1200:

        Amalfi coast is a great place for any motorcycle. pretty near to the Vesuvio, Pompei and Paestum:

        with ferry boat you may reach Ischia:

        Instead Capri is too small for motorcycles.

          I'd love to go to Paestum. I don't think I would leave.

            I think I see/feel passion building for a future "ZZR Idiots Ride Italy" Trans-Atlantic tour...

              Renting is a good option. I did in Tenerife (a Spanish island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean).
              The Yamaha XT 600 was perfect for the island roads and for climbing the Teide Volcano.

              I rented Yamaha Tracer 900 in Poland.
              I was very impressed by the traction control which allows you to be confident in brutally opening the throttle within 20 minutes of riding. I do not dare to do it with ZZR yet..
