But - if you fancied it a bit of a blat round Rome in the snow on your trail bike/scooter/moped/Goldwing what have you, 'cos all two wheeled machine are BANNED from 6am this Friday morning until further notice.
Now I don't know how our Roman friends cope on two wheels in snow (most likely fine), but when I used to commute through London to the West End day in day out on my trusty Honda Benly CD 200, I used to love a bit of snow to ride in, though I'd usually have one or two laying-downs of the bike in the thicker stuff where no cars had passed. And when I lived in Italy, I'd relish taking the wife's Gilera Trail 50 into the mountains when it snowed.
Anyway, if the authorities here told me that I couldn't ride on two wheels in the snow, I'd ignore them on principle and tell them to stick it up their government CULO. I hope the Roman 'centauri' or bikers, do the same.
