This little guy joined me for breakfast while on a motorcycle trip through the Italian Riviera. This photo was taken at the Hotel Eden in Portofino. The ride along the Mediterranean coast was spectacular and but for a little accident coming out of a tunnel that evening, an otherwise typical day on holiday in Italy. Fortunately, I was ok, the Ducati Monster suffered some damage but I was able to limp to Monte Carlo and spend the day on the beach. The ride back to Milano to return the motorbike in a torrential downpour was interesting, especially since I am not an avid motorcycler and otherwise had talked my way into obtaining the necessary approvals (USA and European licenses, Ducati rental).
