Ride to Tossa [Costa Brava] Part 1
This time I wanted to test my Yamaha 350 F2 after all the changes I ve done to the engine on the last weeks and also try the new pair of racing pistons [Pro X] on full performance. It only needs to get fixed the front parts [faring] , maybe I will do this winter, as It does makes the difference for long trips and speed, but I like it naked too.
So a proper curvy road was the best choice for my trip.
I knew the roads would be empty by then.
The road goes all the way on the coast from Lloret de Mar to Tossa. High cliffs with a beautiful seenery.
All shrouded by pine forests and clean small beaches.
There werent any people on the road aside of me, I guess everybody was on the beach or eating, so the ride was pretty cool....and fast.
The perfect mediterranean atmosphere.
Brilliant curvy roads.
I finally arrived to Tossa, but I wanted a bit more, so I headed forward to St. Feliu de Guixols which its the next town, right before the popular and over crowded Platja D'Aro.
The road was brilliant too although It got a bit more narrow.
Few minutes later I got in St. Feliu, drove a bit through town and stopped for a drink. The place isn't really special, just another town in the coast. To be honest my appeal in the area goes more towards the quiet nice beaches I did pass before on my way. I remember the rave parties we used to do years ago in the odd hidden beach on this area. They were ace.
I already tested my bike to the max [And didnt dissapointed me a bit], so I tried to drive this time more quietly and trying to enjoy more the beautiful seenery.
Pretty difficult task with a 2 stroke engine If you ask me.
Because I was driving a bit more slow, at some point I saw something I missed the first time:
Somebody seems had an accident and died right there not long ago.
Makes you remember you are not alone in the road and to keep always your eyes open. A split second takes your far away from planeth earth.
Right before Lloret, around 6 pm I did my last stop, there was a nice cliff and I pulled over and had my funny smoke, that was compulsory and it was well deserved!
I havent seen one for ages!
I took this photos and also one of the Pipe
He also told me he runs circuit races. And few minutes later he left with an impressive wheelie, living everybody there in aw. [Yes I missed the shot!]
We saw other bikes passing through.
I wanted more and I thought to go back southwards on the way to Barcelona, but stopping in the Maresme area first. The Montnegre corridor was the the next destination.
Great roads too....but that will go in part 2
If there is good weather this weekend will ride somewhere elses.

Got fixed the crank and new pistons [Pro X], also a new set of breaks and changed clutch disk and transmission. Like a brand new bike!. Now is time to enjoy some curvy roads for the rest of September and October which are the best months here on the mediterranean.
