I live quite close to the Belgian border and I must say, I am impressed by the Flemish.
Their lifestyle, the countryside, the flemish people, ...the flemish riders, man are they cool or what.
If you ever want to sniff some of that ambience, visit some local races around Gent.
That's the way it should be..
My ride is a beautiful Italian lady named pinarello asolo. All steel NOS frame that I built last year.
All Campagnolo and Italian parts ofcourse except for the saddle which is a Specialized ;0)
