From Bonifacio return north through the mountains. The road has almost no straight lines, little car passing, extraordinary tarmac, beautiful scenery and lots of cool winds.

The eastern's side road is just straight with lots of car passing by, especially this season we're talking about.

I'm trying to set out the route you're describing in google maps but can't seem to find loretto di tallano.

Here is the name and road number at the village entrance when you go down from Zonza:


And this is the village seen from the upper road

Tour of Corse June - July 2011

Hi!
I'll be in Corsica (again) with my XT600 3tb at the end of june. After a tour with a friend and another alone, this time I'll come with my girlfriend...she's so happy for going in a so beautiful place.

I'd like to take her in some of the best spot where I was been and discover someone else.

Somebody can tell me some information about Desert of Agriates?
There's a track between Plage de Saleccia and Plage de Ghignu that can I follow with my super-loaded bike (me 100kg, my girl 48kg, luggages&tent 40kg)?

And... some suggestion about cheap restaurant in St. Florent, Calvi, Ajaccio, Bonifacio, Porto Vecchio and Corte or elsewhere?


and.. (hoping this information will be irrilevant) where are any garages that can repair my Yamaha, if something will go wrong?

Thank you!

Saluti a tutti di a Corsica!

Dear saito! normaly i should be in front off our sidebike, fixing the brakes for our trip to corse in mid june.
But this is better, watering the mouth, is your arrival in Bastia in the morning?
Have a loaded gas tank and stop only for the croissants, leave the crowded town and take the hill to St. Florent. Just follow the coastline to Calvi and don`t miss the route Calvi-Galeria-Porto.
Think it was the first stage of the WRC event, two weeks ago.
In this "stage" you have a CP, called la morsetta, they have small huts too and the best plage ever.
Never underestimate the landscape, you can`t make a lot kilometers, use each posibility to fill your gas-tank. Let the inmates pass, they know the route and the radars.
Hardrenaline, try youtube to see the gravelroad or stay in St. Florent at the CP, leave the lugagge there. Use the guide "Velbinger", there is a new edition
or ask in the german "corsica forum", nice people with a lot know how.
Your XT is very common in france but but the problem is to get spair parts.
So have a second clutch cable, something to repair the chaine god tyres
and something to repair tyres in the middle off the macchia.
See you all, hensmen with a Roemergespann and the good old dr650 SE...
