What happens when you try to learn how to make a pizza in a language you don’t understand? When your classic Lambretta refuses to run in Roman traffic? What do you think, Drake McElroy the next Russel Crowe?

    Why is the Duacti Rep riding a Triumph?

    Russel Crowe, you say?

    Seriously though, this guy is pretty much living the best life. Great video.

  • Campisi

    I take it the kick starter on the Lambretta wasn’t working, or the battery was dead?

    Great video like always. Only thing is, they need to shoot it in 1080p, not i. The interlacing is horrid :P

    Italy is definitely something a motorcycle enthusiast needs to experience. Hell, even if you are just a regular guy, Italy is amazing. The sights, the people, the food.

    In regards to him looking like an ass, no, not at all. That’s normal Roman traffic. Trust me xD.

    Thanks for sharing!

        I saw him as having far more grace and an appreciation for where he was vs. what his appearances would suggest.

    Shit – between these and the RideApart videos I’m not getting any work done.

    BTW – I know douchy hipsters and Drake is no douchy hipster.

    I’ve not followed Jake, having a man-crush on that Alpinestars guy & all.
    But this; after watching this, I considered going back and watching ALL his earlier vids posted at HFL.
    Didn’t do it.
