|Moto Guzzi Falcone 500 Italian Police Display in the 50's|
I remember my first ride on the back of a motorcycle as if it was yesterday. My dad had a buddy who rode a bike who stopped by the house and gave me a ride around the block. I was very young and thought it was the coolest thing ever.
Years later, my on again-off again boyfriend showed up at my house and gave me a ride on the back of his dirtbike. I still don't know if the thrill came from the ride or the guy?!?!
What is it about men who ride bikes that attracts women? Is it his adventurous spirit? Is it his need for speed or his bad guy persona? I don't presume to have the answers...but one thing is for sure, generations of people have had a love affair with motorcycles.
In the spirit of keeping this blog as Italian as possible, I will share with you Italian police motorbike riders from the 1950's performing a public display of talent. Which is your favorite stunt?
