WHAT makes a motorcycle trip epic? Is it the people, the bike, the ride or the destination? Or how about a combination of all of these factors?
Whatever it is, Legendary Motorcycle Adventure has hit the nail on the head, offering a number of awesome overland trips on classically styled Royal Enfields.
Collaborating with Belstaff and Malle London, not to forget Royal Enfield itself, LMA puts the style in adventure motorcycling, with a number of carefully crafted tours, tailored to offer the best lifestyle and riding experiences each country has to offer.
One trip that stands out in particular is the Corsica to Sardinia sejour, a 6-day ride around the adjacent Mediterranean islands.
The 600-mile tour begins in the French territory of Corsica, a beautifully rugged and unspoiled island. Dramatic coastlines, mountainside forests and quiet villages provide a scenic route, while smooth, twisting roads make for a thrilling ride.
After crossing a short stretch of water, the tour arrives in Sardinia. Despite their geographical proximity, the two islands differ greatly. With a heavy influence from its mainland, Italy, Sardinia is steeped in history, with no less than seven thousand prehistoric stone towers. Combined with incredible roads and perfect beaches, it’s the ideal motorcycling destination.
Along the way, riders travel on coast roads and mountain tracks, camp under the stars and sleep in boutique hotels and experience culture, history and incredible food in equal measure.
