  • Alghero Bosa

  • Alghero Bosa

    The Alghero - Bosa is perhaps one of the most beautiful roads in the world. Forty-five kilometers of curves overlooking the sea that offer those who travel in motion unique emotions. A combination of scents and landscapes in the setting of the crystal clear sea of the west coast of Sardinia.
    Leaving Bosa alle Spalle we follow the road north towards Alghero. After the first 5 km immersed in the Mediterranean scrub we arrive at the first brow overlooking the sea; the olive-green volcanic rock makes the crystalline water of Sardinia a unique color, I would say almost fascinating. Continuing along the route between dozens and dozens of curves, you immediately understand that you are in a part of the uncontaminated world in which nature still works as a Master; the griffins accompany us on our journey almost as if they wanted us to understand that we are at home. One of the most beautiful things in Sardinia is without a doubt the fact that in just a few kilometers the landscape, the rock, the vegetation and even the color of the sky change quickly. Distracted by the beauty of the road and the emotions that our Bike gives us between a bend and a nice corner, we notice almost by chance that the nature around us has changed appearance; the greenish and smooth volcanic rock has become red and jagged. In just 30 kilometers it seems to be in another country.
    But beauty comes to an end. It is the hour of sunset and we see the sky that becomes increasingly colored with that beautiful color; overcome one of the last curves before Alghero, taken by surprise, we see that beautiful promontory named "Capocaccia" with the sun behind it and the Skyline of the small Alghero.
    It is difficult to put into words an emotion ... a little tired and happy we arrived at our destination ...
  • Orientale Sarda

  • Orientale Sarda

    The Strada Statale 125, Orientale Sarda, has become over time a Must for the tens of thousands of motorcyclists that Each Year choose Sardinia for their holidays.
    The old road that connected the north and south of Sardinia, from Palau, passing through Olbia, to Cagliari following the whole east coast of the island. It is easy if you have chosen Sardinia for your motorbike holidays, you have to go through here. Dozens and dozens of "colleagues", from the most sporty with street bikes to lovers of travel with the Big and Heavy Cruiser Motorcycles are here.
    Starting from the North, the first piece, from Palau to Orosei, crosses all the most famous and popular tourist resorts of the island, the splendid Emerald Coast, San Teodoro, Budoni, Siniscola, towns of a few thousand Inhabitants that are transformed during the Summer to accommodate dozens of Thousands of tourists.
    Once overcome, however, Orosei understands that something is changing, civilization thins out leaving space to Nature. Tens of thousands of hectares of land where only the grazing animals and the wildest vegetation are the hosts. The motorbike becomes here the instrument of pleasure; curve on a curve, a fast mix with the rocky ridge on the left and the void on the right; the temperature drops a few degrees, we are in the mountains, and in the pass to "Genna Silana" the wind is felt. The view of the "Gola di gorroppu" is breathtaking; you could visit it with a couple of hours of walking but our motorcycle boots and technical equipment don't allow it, we'll be back….
    Looking at the mountains, you can see hundreds of unpaved paths, we find out and discover that they are used by local guides to bring hikers, spelunkers who love climbing in the thousands of caves present in this beautiful desolate and uncontaminated area. We can only imagine, how beautiful it can be to cover them with an Enduro or Maxi enduro motorcycle.
    Continue in the direction of Tortolì and the last piece of road becomes a little slower and more demanding. Hairpin bends and tight curves, in just a few kilometers they take us down hundreds of meters but even in this case, the view and the view of the Gulf of Arbatax repay any sacrifice.  
  • Seven Brothers

  • Seven Brothers

    We are in the South-East area of the Island, a mountainous complex made up of seven Peaks, the highest “dei Serpeddi" 1067 mt. A natural park that extends for hundreds of hectares where nature reaches its maximum expression in terms of flora and fauna.
    Natural frames of rare beauty and rocks shaped by time will give you a strange feeling, the gorges and canyons will almost make you forget that you are in the middle of the Mediterranean, remembering typical landscapes of the American deserts. The uncontaminated nature and the very low population density of these areas give the space to the wildlife: clans, falcons, equile real over your head as well as deer, mouflon, rabbits and wild boar at your side will be able to make you feel all one with nature.
    Narrow curves, hairpin bends and passes cut your breath at every step. The motorbike, our travel companion, reacts well to the not perfect asphalt that does not allow large folds and adrenaline-filled emotions compensated by the feeling of well-being and contact with nature that this area of Sardinia will make you live.  
  • Barbagia

  • Barbagia

    We are in the center of the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean, between Orgosolo, Oliena, Fonni, Aritzo and Tonara, the oldest area of Sardinia and rich in history and traditions. Civilization and evolution (understood in the most technological sense of the term) seem to have wanted to avoid this part of the island. Mobile phones take little in the middle of these beautiful mountains and tell us that many still do not have a fast internet connection. In these parts you live from what nature gives us and most of the population is engaged in raising cattle for meat and / or milk as well as agriculture.
    The air we breathe has a different taste, is clean, fresh and it seems that industrialization and pollution have never come close to this part of the island.
    Thousands of curves and mountain landscapes take us from one village to another; small realities of 3-4000 inhabitants rich in history but above all traditions; the elderly sit outside their homes at the edge of the road and greet us almost as if they were the guardians of these small settlements, they know everything, who enters, who leaves the country as people move whether they are local or tourists .. A sort video surveillance system of other times Hospitality is without the highlight of the population that lives in these mountains. If you enter a bar and "mistake" make friends with someone, you should know that you will not be able to leave before all those present have offered you a drink. Don't you dare take the wallet in your hand; they would be offended. It is a local custom that everyone pays "a ride" regardless of how many are present.
    Ah ... I almost forgot a very important detail for us motorcyclists. The quality of the asphalt is fantastic, traffic is practically zero, you are not able to count the amount of turns and bends in a few kilometers of transfer and the food…. Oh well ... I tell you to do ... Go try it !!  
  • Costa Verde

  • Green Coast

    We are in the center-west of the island, in the area of Arbus. In this part of the island, although it can be considered, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful mass tourism has never arrived because it is very far and difficult to reach from the three International Airports of Alghero, Olbia and Cagliari as well as from the ports located in the same cities beyond Golfo Aranci and Arbatax; it is not possible to find fast-flowing roads but only dual-directional state roads and curves, many curves that make it uncomfortable for car travelers to reach these areas. All this is obviously less for motor-cyclists like us who make curves and asphalt their "must" to experience the perfect holiday and I assure you that in Sardinia you can truly experience "A perfect holiday".
    We walk from this area from North to South, Torre dei Corsari, Portu Maga to arrive at Piscinas, one of Europe's largest natural deserts with crystal clear white sand dunes, a landscape that you would never expect to find here.
    If it has not rained recently, through a very simple white road and a small ford you can cross the whole dune area to go further south, towards Ingurtosu, Gennamari Portixeddu, Bugerru.
    Even here, it is useless to tell the views of these roads in words, you have to live them, you will arrive in Masua, in front of you a giant cliff, with very white limestone from which it takes the name "Pan di zucchero". We are in Sulcis-Iglesiente, an area that in the past lived on mining.
    We recommend a visit to "Porto Flavia", a port, in the broadest sense of the word, which was created by digging a tunnel in the rock to reach the sea; tourist guides will be able to tell you better than I about the particular history of this unique settlement.
  • Alghero - Castelsardo

  • Alghero - Castelsardo

    In this short travel story we want to try to tell you about one of the most beautiful parts of Northern Sardinia. We are in Alghero, a beautiful town of Catalan origin overlooking the west coast of the island with its historic center, rich in art and tradition as well as tens of kilometers of beaches, it is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in Sardinia.
    With our motorbike we head towards the capocaccia headland to reach the largest natural bay in Europe, Porto Conte. Once we arrive at Capocaccia from the lookout overlooking the island "Foradada" we can admire the vastness of the Mediterranean sea on one side and the skyline of the town of Alghero on the other all immersed in a naturalistic context of the highest quality.
    We leave behind the huntsman and head towards Il Lago di Baratz from which, thanks to the advice of Lorenzo di Motorentsardinia, through a white road we cut the plain of the Nurra up to the Argentiera passing through Palmadula. A partical context, dark sand, ocean waves and behind us the abandoned mine puts a bit of agitation
    We aim the beak of our GS towards the north to reach Stintino; in the past a small fishing village that became an international tourist destination thanks to the “la pelosa” beach, in second place in the international ranking of the most beautiful beaches in the world; I have not seen the others ... in any case, I think, that this one has nothing to envy from anyone.
    SI continues in an easterly direction crossing the immense pine forest of Platamona, to reach Castelsardo, a medieval village with the beautiful castle overlooking the northern sea of the island, landscapes and breathtaking views will accompany you along the road that connects the two places .  
  • Barumini

  • Barumini

    Today I want to tell you a bit of history; no motorcycles, curves landscapes and adrenaline but emotions linked to the oldest history of this island. The nuraghi, are stone constructions, in the shape of a truncated cone, made of stones placed one on top of the other dry from the largest to the base, to the smallest up to the roof.
    Considering that it is assumed that they date back to the Bronze Age, about two centuries before Christ demonstrate how much the inhabitants of that era already had high engineering knowledge especially as regards the weight distribution and the force of gravity
    The most important nuragic settlement of the island is located in Barumini, in the central south, "su Nuraxi" was rediscovered in the 50s by a local archaeologist and shows today a high level of conservation.
    The visit, with the help of expert guides, will make you live a particular experience and you will identify yourself with the life of the inhabitants of those structures with more than 2000 years of history.
    In Sardinia over 7000 nuraghic settlements have been discovered but what they still render today, much more fascinating their history is that it is not clear what their real function was, if it was of military, religious or even astronomical origin, considering their location on the regional territory corresponding to a precise alignment with the stars.
