Touring Mallorca

Considering that, middle of April at home winter and almost no riding in
couple of weeks........

pics from my backyard taken 12-15 of April









....to make a decision, take a flight and rent a scoot




Isle Mallorca is not big. For example from the capital Palma in south, after
motorway to Alcudia in north, there was only about 50 kilometres.
However, there are a mountainarea in west, small tortuous roads and they
gives many kilometres and a lot of nice riding on two wheels.
At northwest is a small village called Sa Calobra. Road to Calobra and back is an
amazing piece of engineering, one of the greatest roads I´ve ride on.

Two days of riding gave me and Kajsa(wife) 500-600 kilometres on a
Piaggio 125.




On motorway from Palma Nova. We follow the road only few kilometres and
then turn soutt on smaller roads to Port D`andtrax.




Few laps in the small village before heading north.





After Andratx we climp uphill. Small, twisty road with beautiful scenery from
the Mediteraneo sea




Stops sometimes and check out the views





Nice roads with nice tarmac.



Some kind of viewtower.




Climbing to the tower, small village down there.



Tower



Down there, Piaggio parked



Up at the tower, we can see the mountain chain we have followed.




Kajsa is afraid of hights. Hurry up down, she doesn´t like when she sees
me sit on the towers edge and dangle with my legs.



We leave the tower and get forward against the road to Espolres.



Just before Espolres we turn to Valdemossa. Road gets smaller...




....to be continued
