    Only 16 hours to go till I commence my 3500 mile tour of Italy in the Legend. I've washed it, polished it, checked everything many times and can't wait for the departure tomorrow morning. I will of course be monitoring fuel burn and will append a full report on my return, hopefully with lots of photos in scenic locations. I have wanted to do this for many years having toured around Europe by motorcycle for the last two decades. I trust Honda reliability will see me home again without problems.

    I will be 60 years old next Friday, when I plan to be in Naples. I'm so excited I can't sit still.:Happy:

    If driving to Italy is anything like driving to Marbella you'll love it.
    Does Italy have toll roads like France?
    Amazing condition but very expensive?

    Hi all.
    Thank you all for your kind wishes. I got back last night after a very long drive home from Lake Como in Northern Italy. The trip was a complete success and the Legend was just fantastic. Lots to report on, but I need to download some pics and stuff. Once I have re-acquired my brain I will append a full report in due course. :excited:

    Beautiful condition! What colour code is your car? Have you ever thought of sourcing the optional 18" wheels? I think they absolutely make the car!

    Don't know, perhaps, Mounty Mc Mountainface! It's on the D900 from Gap in France to Cuneo in Italy, about 30 miles south of Lake Sere Poncon. A fantastic road to ride or drive. 4 hours of tyre shredding twisties with hardly any traffic, like this. 100_2218.JPG 100_2220.JPG

    Only a day's drive from southern UK!
