Featured Sardinia And Corsica

Discussion in 'Touring' started by Dave, Oct 11, 2019 at 7:12 PM.

  1. Packing riding gear as I’m off tomorrow for a week riding round Sardinia and Corsica. No Africa Twins available for hire sadly, could have had a Multi but have gone for a GS as MrsH much prefers them for pillion.

    Short flight from Bristol airport and we’ll be in the sun. I’ll report back here but by all accounts the riding is amazing. Food should be good too. Can’t wait :)

  2. Will look forward to your views
     
  3. We were intending to ride down there this year but that plan got canned in the end. Will be interested in how you find it. Weather looks good, off to Portugal on Sunday and it looks a bit iffy there, better than here though.

  4. The roads in Corsica are fantastic. Have a great time. I was there about 15 yrs ago.

  5. I am bloody Jealous - hope it is good.
     
  6. Sounds great. Enjoy!!
     
  7. Certainly looks far nicer weather there than here.:upyeah:
     
  8. Just landed and now waiting for baggage. Should be able to share some video of these roads as I bought myself a new GoPro at the airport. They have a new model coming out so the current top of the range 7 has been handsomely discounted and is plenty good enough for me.
     
  9. Can recommend Sardinia - but don’t rush it!!!
     
  10. Hotel in Olbia, with bikes waiting :)

  14. I can confirm that Corsica is really something for motorcycling..stunning roads, views and sun. Pretty damn good for hiking too - GR20 is a real experience.
    Have fun!
