There was a decent amount of surface rust on the rear cross member. Also the drivers kept starting in 2 gear on it. Just didn't feel right from the passenger seat. I came up on this pretty little HCPU at about the 3 hour on a mtn bike ride. We decended into Switzerland and took a Gondi half way back up into Le Tour. Had a 25 minute climb and this was right at the top. Most have been a motivational sign for me to keep pedaling After lunch this Iveco was right near the converted barn we ate at. I liked this thing a lot. Boosts on rigs were plenty. This was in the center of Chamonix. I saw a super nice Heritage 110 in light green but just didn't have a chance to grab a pic. And I got to drive this little Renault around all week. A Le Car that holds 7!

Sandwich from Poco Loco should provide the energy to climb anything.

Didn't get to Poco Loco unfortunately.

The all too common Italian military photo. This one at Naples airport. Heavy security was very present. Ironically nothing to be seen at Dublin airport. Odd given ticketing, especially the huge queue for departures to USA, is just a few yards from the departures curbside drop off. Different means and methods.
