Thumbs up Stelvio Pass on Top Gear

Would have been more fun on a bike, but still... cool roads. Nice cages too.

Re: Stelvio Pass on Top Gear

Yes, Stelvio was lots of fun on a bike. I didn't see any other traffic in this video - I wonder if they got the road shut down while they filmed. I sure hope so, 'cause they violated the Prime Directive for non-squidly fast riding on a public road: stay on your own side.

Yep, BTDT. It's an awesome road.

The biggest problem is having your attention torn between the incredible scenery, the amazing engineering in those suspended corners, and just wanting to tear up the road at full-tilt. Guess which one won?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
