Motorcycle Swap Meets Make Me Happy… | Vicki's View Blog on Ducati.net | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Every so often in my travels the moon and stars align and the event I am attending lines up with something else I love to do.  At IndyGP it’s the flat track races. In Italy, #1 happy score is a motorcycle swap meet.  If you like motorcycles (and not just old ones) time spent wandering one of these is a feast of dreams.  Everywhere you turn there’s a two wheeled machine that you can just see in your garage. Sure I’m 5000 miles from home and a whole bunch of those miles are wet but it happens every time I see a Moto Guzzi Galetto or a Piaggio Ape (if it’s a Callessino whoa nelly, bar the door). For me the best ones are the old established affairs like Imola, or Novegro, but all year long there is one somewhere almost every weekend.  The content varies, antiques always manage to make an appearance and for sure somebody will be selling leather goods or jewelry or watches or tools and over the years more and more Eastern block items are turning up but the one thing you can count on is motorcycles, scooters and little Italian cars and just about all of it could be yours with a little negotiation....
