      About this trip

      Join local guides and YCRS COO Keith Culver for a twisty trip through the Pyrenees Mountains with three days of track time on Motorland Aragón. Arrive and depart from the passionate Catalan capital of Barcelona. Ride the pristine mountain passes between France and Spain. Stay in a few castles and high mountain resorts along the way. The rich mountain food is merging of both French and Catalan cooking with more Basque influence as we head further west. Experience the massive 16 turn circuit of Aragón on a new S1000RR on Metzler K3 tires and Troy Corser as your lead instructor. Your track riding friends chose this dream now it's real and has become a top tour since 2018. Super plush with dinners included.

      Itinerary

      Day 1
      Welcome to Barcelona

      This is the capital of the passionately independent people of Catalan. A port city that’s long been a home to artists and explorers. You’ll be met at the airport by our local guides and taken to your hotel. Hopefully you have some time to do some sight seeing before your welcome briefing and dinner. It’s time to meet your fellow riders, learn about the curves to come and have a few dishes and drinks you’ve never tasted before.

      Epic. I watched the promo video at least 100 times and sent it to as many people. Everyone, myself included, thought it looked epic. Cat & Nancy did not disappoint. When I watch the video now, and recognize the places, roads, and corners on Motorland Aragon, my eyes well up. Not sure how much better you can get than that!

      Hear the Road was expert and made for a wonderful experience in Italy! Would like to ride with Enrico in Sardinia in 2024.

      This was a trip of a lifetime. Thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of the trip. Enrico our guide was simply amazing, fun, entertaining, insightful, etc. The ride was fantastic, the scenic vistas breathtaking, food delicious, wine incredible. I hated to leave and have dreaming about the trip since I left. Scheming a way to return as soon as possible for another adventure.

      In my opinion, the 2022 Corsica/Sardinia tour was overly ambitious in design, which left me feeling rushed each day, and did not allow for any time to relax and enjoy what we were driving through. There were too many miles per day planned on winding & challenging coastal roads. As a result, there was very little time to stop and enjoy the scenery. Several of us arrived at our hotels late in the evening worn out. In addition, while curves are a motorcyclist’s nirvana, there is a point at which there can be too much of a good thing. Poor judgment can creep in after several hours of twisties in high temperatures. We experienced highs from 82-93 degree F temps (27-33 C). We traveled though some very scenic coastal towns and seascape, but because the main goal was to get from Point A to Point B as fast as possible, we missed out on the beauty of the islands. This is not a tour designed for site-seeing; it is all about the curves, and how to traverse them quickly, despite the unexpected obstacles around some corners: rock/sand debris, a random cow or goat, locals and tourists driving in the opposite direction. While speed and corners dominated this tour, there were other elements that were very positive. The Mugello Ducati Riding Experience track day was well-done. Mugello is a beautiful track and the 1 instructor/ 4 student instruction was insightful for all levels. The hotels that were chosen were awesome; a few even stunning in location and history. The ferry rides were all memorable - even the 18 hour overnighter from Obia to Livorno. The planning for all this was impeccable and without issue…. no small deed! In summary, this tour, as it stands, is for adrenaline junkies. It is not for sightseeing - even at a moderate pace. If the tour can make the following changes, it would be 5 stars (for me): fewer daily miles, two nights on Corsica, allowance for riders to ride at their skill level and pace. At the very least, divide up into two riding groups.

      You are totally correct Chris. This was the first running of this tour and I've talked with Enrico a lot about the route. It's too much. Also if I had been on the tour rather than getting Covid (Ick), I would have broken the group up into two and had the more leisurely paced riders go in one group and the sport touring guys go in another. Franco was stuck trying the run a tour his own for the first time and was hesitant to make such decisions. The route has been redesigned to feature just Corsica and allow for a wider variance in speed and free time.

      A great trip that was incredibly well-organized and curated. Perfect roads, delicious food, reliable bike, and great hotels. What more do you need?
