Damned.
Task, you dont want to do offroad so u never do offroad.
And for your first time, u went for a not-so-easy track with a loaded bike !
Doh !

Nevertheless, It's very doable.
Especially for you.
yes, really. I mean it.
You're tall. that's a big advantage (pun intended).

More. May I suggest a nice present for you ? a pair of new shocks. Any brand you like. Bamsefar will be rejuvenated !

When I had to give up, my only comfort was that the two 12GS's has already understood
that the game was over. So, at least, I got further up than them

But, then again, I dropped the bike on the way down while they didn't

True! This guy can put his bike on the centerstand and still place both feet fully flat on the ground!! Mmmm, anyway... I'd realy wanted having seen the ones extending that "end of trail point" with a loaded 1150 or 1200GS and a pair of Metzler-Tourance' fitted ...

Sorry, my pics still not available. I have some technical and "organisational" issues here...

Talking No entry, No parking



I don't know how the Swiss view themselves, but I believe that for the rest of us, words like "precise", "on time", "rules"
and others like them prevail.
How nice is it not, then, to see that also the Swiss know that the proper way to deal with No Entry and No Parking signs
is simply to park on the side walk

That BMW Cruiser is one cool looking bike!

Now, before we are getting too deep into any details which later on might be utilized to sue one or more participants (one of them will be sent to jail maybe anyway as he was forced to outsmart Italian highway toll-station), let’s change subject now:

Still BEFORE “Corsica for Friends” ADVrider-Thread really is much further than day one, and also still BEFORE “Corsica for Friends” book’s first edition is in print, I’m having the great honour to proudly present exclusively to the honourable ADVrider community …. “Corsica for Friends – The Movie”! Enjoye and...


PLAY IT LOUD!

Eh? Salad



I am used to "a salad" to be some salad. That green stuff. Possibly with a slice or two of tomato.

On Corsica, "a salad" is a meal.

Bluhduh More "salad"


I am a slow learner; also the next evening I ordered "salad" after the main course.
From this we conclude that "salad', in general, means a meal.
