It might have become a cliche, but be honest, we all have had some sort of bucket list moment.

Whether it's watching MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi at Mugello, helping your buddy completely rebuild a project car or that one car you need to drive before you die, what's on your automotive bucket list? We want to know, send your responses here

So, let me outline three items on my bucket list: 

1. Driving on the famous Nurburgring race track in Germany preferably in a manual E92 BMW M3. Scary race track, V8 engine and a manual gearbox. Enough said. 

2. Finding an old Ford Capri and restoring it with my father. It's a car we both love and what better way to spend quality time with my old man than getting our hands covered in oil knowing the finished product is something we worked on together. 

3. Attending the Italian MotoGP at Mugello with 50 000 screaming fans in beautiful Tuscany. Part of the appeal is because it's seven-time world champion Valentino Rossi's home race. 

The Italian is 39 years old and reaching the end of his career, and who knows for how long we'll see him on a Yamaha? 

To get you into the mood, watch Rossi's ultra fans at Mugello in this cool clip below:
