Motoclub “Mori Peloritani”
“I veri confini del mondo esistono solo nelle nostre menti”.
I veri confini del mondo esistono solo nelle nostre menti” (“The real world’s edges are only in our minds”). That’s our motto! We are “ Mori Peloritani "and made of the passion for the two-wheeler a veritable life-style.
This leads to the choice of the motoclub’s name: “Mori” (“Moors”) were the knights who ruled over our country centuries ago; they were free to ride everywhere their steeds could bring them; “Peloritani” is the name of our country’s mounts, from where our trips starts and where we find refuge before setting off on new trips.
Sticking to our motto and starting with the assumption “mai la stessa strada” (“never the same road”) we travelled all over Sicily, going through the whole Nebrodi mountain chain, reaching towns as Ragusa, Modica, Siracusa, Agrigento, Trapani, S. Vito Lo Capo, Palermo, all the towns on Etna’s slopes and the big Volcano itself, as far as law allows to go. No one road can be hostile to us, nor paved nor dirt ones, nor torrent’s pebbly shore nor firebreaks created by Forest Rangers.
Not satisfied, we crossed the frontier of our island and took part in the biggest biker’s convention of the Europe, “Lo Stelvio”, bringing the colours of the “Mori” among other ten thousand motorcyclists, and collecting plaudits for we run perhaps the bigger number of kilometres.
We ourselves meticulously organised a biker’s convention, and made a success as more than two hundred of motorcycles reached the valley of the torrent Agrò. Moreover we end the 2005 with our greatest adventure, the “Desert Experience”, a wonderful journey in Tunisia, where our passion reached the top and meld with the emotions that only the Sahara desert can give.
All this is only a synthesis of our calendar of 2005: there were many other less important events in which we took part, like “L'Infiorata” at Noto (a village near Siracusa) and the “Couscous Festival” at S. Vito Lo Capo; they leaved an enduring mark in our memories.
We will face the 2006 with the same passion and perseverance, so that other people can enjoy with us the zest for life...
