Time’s almost out to reserve your space in the 2014 Benelli Vintage Tour. Led by motorcycle tour veteran Burt Richmond with Motorcycle Classics’ editor-in-chief Richard Backus riding second, the Benelli Vintage Tour features 10 days of riding through Italy’s scenic Marche and Umbria regions aboard vintage Italian motorcycles.
Tour participants will have their choice of vintage Benellis and Motobis to ride, ranging from a single-cylinder 1955 125cc Benelli Carenato to a 6-cylinder Seventies Sei 750, with late model “millennium” Benellis available for those who want to ride two-up or just prefer a newer machine. We’ll take in motorcycle museums including the famed Benelli Museum and the Morbidelli Museum in Pesaro, and finish the tour at the San Marino GP at Misano World Circuit. Cost for the tour is $3,500, which includes your bike, hotel room, breakfast and dinner every day, and a support vehicle and bilingual guide. Go to MotoGP to purchase GP tickets, which are extra. MC
