How ever, you supposed to be alert all the time; Corse folks are well known to be a bit “special” (ain’t it, Scap?) . So you make sure that they don’t throw big things after you…

…or, mean as they sometimes can be, they try to break your heart by sending some cute piglet-gang across your way.

A mix of year in the pictures: this was probably in May this year ! We had a great snow at low altitude during this period of time!

BTW: It is Pastis , Ricard or Casanis and the very Corsican one is the Pastis Dami ! The sun in a bottle

Tks for posting.

Correct. Some 29th or 30th of May I'd say.... Shit, did I freeze in that Valey....
It is the Asco Valley. That Valley must be beautiful when weather is good. I had the unfurtune to enter it on a grey, ugly wet and cold day. I was freezing already when starting to climb into the valley.... and that damn' slot in the landscape did not want to end. Another and another turn.... out of the forest, into the forest, over one, two, three.... who knows how many times crossing the little creek on small bridge.... and it was COLD!!!! This probably was the longest hour during the whole trip!
There's a hut at the very end of the valley. At some point, I just wanted to get there. I was sure right after the next turn the hut must show up. But again and again there was another one…. No hut for having one hot chocolate and warming my body up for how long it ever might take. It was my goal getting there from the very beginning.
When I finally arrived on huge, almost empty parking lot of a ski-station, there was 2 dozen HD's parked already. After I peeled out of the plastic-skin, I finally entered the hut where they all sat with their orange uniform, their HD caps and shirts and their valets chained with thick chains to their pants. So I entered the shop and one roaring applause came up in the hut, obviously for me, no idea at all what the reason was for that at all.... so after it got more quiet I was asking "hey, what was that for?? you freaks thought a BMW doesn't make it up here, right?!?"
Hwahhuh roar haaaaha..... I did not understand anyone of the responses! But you can be sure they ALL had something funny and even more clever to answer. So I finally ended up being invited for drinking their wine and eating dinner in greatest company..... So, yes, you are right; they are very nice, the Corsians!

This was on the way back.... in approximately the middle of the valley, looking back to the snow covered mountains...

Corsu

I think Corsica is one of the most interesting places I've ridden. A continent as they say, contained on an island 50 miles (80km) wide and 100 miles (160km) long. So much variety in such a small place. Plus the odd IED to keep things interesting.

Sometime it might happen to you, that you find yourself stuck in one bigger city. Usually these places are same as they are on most the rest of the planet; touristicaly contaminated.

Well, usually it does help if you are simply riding 10 minutes in one direction to find some nice place for a little rest. Either in mountain-forest style or…
