  • Monuments to Speed: Ferrari and Ducati

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                This morning my alarm went off at 5:45. My first reaction, a mix of anger and confusion for such an early awakening, immediately faded when I remembered why I was getting up so early.

Happy Backpackers
