Little Bikes Doing Corsica

Post by Bogger » Sat Jun 09, 2018 12:54 pm

Following on from Bens title of 'Little Bikes Do The Alps', Four of us are off to Corsica for 12days at the beginning of July.

We would like to of taken the cubs, but with time being the only limiting factor we have decided on 125's.

I'm going on a YBR125, Black Cuntry Pete is on a CG125, JJ is on his Innova engined 1965 Cub and Jason a Suzuki FL125. Hopefully three days to get there. 5 days on the Island and three days back home.

Ferries all booked and we'll just wing it when we get there. Obviously we are camping and I'm the mechanic :o :? and Pete is the Chef. So it'll be some ridiculously hot curry every night :evil: :lol: .

I've only been to Ajaccio, twice and that really whetted my appetite. I've been google street mapping the roads, villages and towns. I can't wait. There is a good, well edited video of Corsica on YouTube (I know there are loads). This one has got the title 'Corsica tour' and the image is of a couple in swim suits holding their crash helmets on the beach. It's only about 15 minutes long but in my opinion worth a watch.
