This blog started when I owned and MZ Skorpion Traveller and a bike magazine dismissed it with the phrase 'you can't tour on a single'. The Skorpion's gone and I now have a Triumph Bonneville, but I can't be bothered changing the title of the blog!

SWM Grand Milano 440
Some of you might remember Italian firm SWM who made off road bikes in the 70s and 80s. It appears that they have been relaunched, funded by Chinese firm Shineray, and the Grand Milano 440 is one of the models they've shown.
Very little information on the Web other than some of the engines they will be using are Husqvarna designs, and the projected price will be 5,500 - 6,000 Euros. (£3900 - 4200, US$6,000 - 6,500).
Clip ons, trail tyres, brown paint - all it needs is some exhaust wrap and the numberplate mounted on the side and it'll be a hipster's dream.
Personally I prefer the Silver Vase model:
Now that is cool!
No idea when or even if you'll ever be able to buy any of them.
