I'm sitting at a cafe in Cagliari having just seen Caroline off to the airport to fly home.I take the ferry to mainland Italy tomorrow then start the return journey home.I hope have better time with the 850GT than to date.Three flat rear tyres in three weeks! It appears that the hard plastic rim tape was at fault.A burr next to the valve hole in the tape had been slowly wearing through the inner tube(tubes) and was not noticed until the third repair. It's cost me a fortune in hotel cancellations and alternative accommodation. Anyway,onwards and upwards.Mandello on the way home maybe.
