I have just returned from a short tour of  the north and have been able to include some images of scooters and bikes in Europe.  Although not related to motorbikes I have included a picture of a real adventurer who I met at the Valetta Yacht Club christmas party. Sandra Calafato was sailing a thirty foot yacht from Italy to Malta when a freak wave turned the boat 360 degrees. She suffered a broken arm but managed to get control of the boat and continue to sail it to Malta. I made her an honorary member of Biblio Turismo and invited her to join us if she ever sails down under or if we decide to ride the Italian Alps.

More to come. Unfortunately lost my phone in Munich which had lots of great shots of British and French bikes.

 More images from Biblio Turismo 2016. Biblio Turismo is the only public library marketing project on motorbikes in the world and is the longest continuous rural public library marketing program.
We have now been to the ACT, Victoria and NSW.  There are sixty four rural library services in NSW and Bibli Turismo has visited forty seven of them. There are 278 rural libraries in NSW and so far we have visited at least half of them.

I am confused, did I ride here on the white one or the red one? (Ian)

He is always on the phone. (Ross and Roger)

And when I saw the sign I knew Portland was left, but they all had to ride straight on. (Roger, Alan W, Sherrey, Helena, Ross)


I love posing in my leathers in the library. (Helena)

I really do love posing in my leathers in the library. (Helena)

Guess where?

Ducati red seat in library, how appropriate

Helen loves to pose in her leathers with her helmet in the library. (Helena)
