Motorbike rental in Corsica.

That is correct Global!

One of the oldest Motorbike rental in Corsica is i think "Moto Corse Evasion" located in Ajaccio: http://www.corsicamoto.com/ (available in english)
I never rent myself but had good feedback from this guy.

This other one which i am not familiar with (in french english to) Corseresa available in Ajaccio and Porto Vecchio: http://www.corseresa.fr/index-action...rt3-lg-en.html

This other on "Rent a Car" who also rent bike in Corsica. I dont see any english version (a shame for someone having an english name) This is a World wide known corp.
http://www.rent-car-corsica.com/

French lesson:
If you want to search yourself with "google", just type in french: location moto Corse
(Location = rental, moto=motorbike, Corse= Corsica)

BEAUTIFUL! Fantastic pics. Makes me wanna go back immediatly. I've plans for July next summer. There's still a lot of the inland that I didn't do. Your beautiful pics convinced me completaly. The island looks greener than on my visit. In what time of the year did you do the trip ?
If somebody wants to see more about the most beautiful island of Europe, I have a report here (in dutch but lots of pics) : http://users.pandora.be/url/corsica.htm

Thx a lot for the report, enjoyed it

Bart

Thumb Awesome report!!!

Your pics reminded me of Sardegna quite a bit. Oh I miss that place!! Never made it out of the southern half there to avoid the tourists (Costa Smeralda and such). Hopefully one day I will make it over there again!!!!! When I do Corsica is on my list!

Thanks for a very nice report!!!!

Hi Bart;

Happy you enjoyed. My pics are taken during the May-June period of the year. One of the reasons i choose this period of the year is because it is more green and plenty of colours with the new flowers growing. I would recommend to come in june if you can, up to end of june is ok (i know this is not always easy with the job)

Saluti. Scapa.

Moby Lines - for the true adventure rider...

I won't set foot on their ferries ever again - I took one of these from Italy in '87 and the whole event of getting on the ship and leaving the harbor "on time" was a nightmare. 6 hours late, no crew present when the thing was supposed to leave, etc.


The ferries from Nice and Marseille were always reliable and I don't recall ever having any issues with them. I did 12 trips on those, just one on the Moby Prince. Lucky it wasn't on April 10 1991...
