Italy-Cinque Terre/Pisa

Headed to Italy the last of June and first week of July. During my time in Cinque Terre area, I plan to take the train to Pisa. Just noticed that there is a motorcycle rental place about a block from the Lean Tower of Pisa. Any good rides in the area? What is there to see?
Any recommendations around Florence?

I got my international drivers license the other day so we are ready.

Ride 'em if you got 'em.

Re: Italy-Cinque Terre/Pisa

The Piaggio Museum is cool.

If you go east from Florence to the coast there are some great roads throughout Tuscany. In fact all the Tuscan roads are great

Sienna, San Gimignano, Todi, Spello, Arezzo, Assisi, Volterra and Monteriggioni.to name some destinations
