Stelvio Pass First Ride On Honda CBR900RR Fireblade
The Stelvio Pass (Italian: Passo dello Stelvio; German: Stilfser Joch),
located in Italy, at 2757 m (9045 feet) is the highest paved mountain pass
in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, slightly below the
Col de l'Iseran (2770 m, 9088 feet).
The original road was built in 1820-25 by the Austrian Empire to connect
the former Austrian province of Lombardia with the rest of Austria,
covering a climb of 1871 m. The engineer and project manager was Carlo
Donegani (1775--1845). Since then, the route has changed very little. Its
sixty hairpin turns, 48 of them on the northern side numbered with stones,
are a challenge to motorists
This is the video of me and a friend riding up the Stelvio pass for the
first time. We took the more difficult route up from the Stelvio town. You
can see me get the first corner horribly wrong!! Still, better to stop than
drop!! I would recommend taking the opposite route up through Bormio and
down this side into Stelvio.The stop at the top is the hotel we stayed in,
hotel Folgore. Video filmed on my GoPro2
1993 CBR 900 RR vs 2010 CBR 1000 RR, 17 years of Honda sportbikes
Check out a few wheelies and a brief look at the original badass, the 1993
CBR900RR and the new 2010 CBR1000RR. This represents almost two decades of
CBRs, from the first to the latest.
Look for the wheelies at the end!

Shot this video for a craigslist posting (motorcycle was sold within a
week). It was the second motorcycle that I have owned, and I rode it more
than 5 years. Awesome motorcycle with great personality. Good memories.
