South of England - 14 days

The English south coast, Cornwall, Dartmoor heath, Lands End and Wales.

Several thousand years of history and culture you get on this trip. A treasure trove of experiences in the beautiful, but also sometimes harsh nature. We drive through large and almost empty areas, where cattle and large flocks of sheep graze on valleys and ridges, and where the wide view is not broken by man-made constructions. We find the nicest little charming villages, where the old urban environments have been preserved. The south of England, with its subtropical climate, is the perfect destination for motorcyclists. We'll find the ways you can't do yourself.
