The #elektrogirl story was published in the largest newspaper in Italy, the Corriere della Sera. A stunning drawing by Igor Wolski + the interview by Stefano Bargiggia. We talked at length over Skype; he captured the essence and chose the best topics. Amazing artwork + an interview very well done.
A few of the fantastic things in this drawing is that 1. this is drawn **from a combination of images** —not a single image I made during the journey is taken from this angle...!— 2. **all details are there !** For instance I had a small rainbow 'flag' above my number plate – it's there! My straps and luggage, my boots, T-shirt. The tyres, mirrors and drive belt of the Zero DS. Even the right type of GPS, Garmin Montana 600, is there.

“I think I had the most fun with this one, getting some details from photos was cool and two-wheeled travelling itself is kind of close to me (at a smaller scale of course :) ),” Igor Wolski posted on his fb-account on July 12, 2016.

It begins like this : 'Belgio-Turchia in moto elettrica. Un totale 7.719 km per la fotografa Trui Hanoulle che ha portato a termine un’impresa con una Zero DS, la due ruote che le ha permesso di percorrere il viaggio da Occidente a Oriente, in 67 giorni, spendendo soltanto 23 euro.’
Let me also tell you that, as much as Italy is an ideal motorbike country for soooo many reasons, it's also an ideal ELECTRIC motorcycle country, for just the same reasons and one more:
How about zooming like a lightning on your e-bike but NOT getting your suit and tie dirty? =,-]
