The summit of Monte Grappa is a most sought-out destination for History buffs, Para-gliders, and Motorcyclists. The route I took begins at the foot of the mountain and immediately thrusts you into aggressive hill-climbing for about 45minutes on my bike. Preferably ridden on something akin to a BMW RS 1200 would have been easy. Riding my Honda GL 1500 F6 is a challenge. Hairpins are many as are straight-aways. Do not sight-see, it could be dangerous if you get distracted. Once at the Military Cemetery at top is also a Brauhaus with plenty of parking and seating for a wonderful lunch. I found many motorcyclists friendly to chat with. Another pal arrived on his Harley Bagger showing that a few of us can also mountain climb. My route down was on Route 148 to the north, connecting me with the Auto Strada back to Bassano. My video is that ride.
