TUNISIA Raid 2012
Moto Guzzi Stelvio Club
Stelvio Club confirms the "African appointment of spring" in Tunisia for this year, after Morocco in 2011. Moto Guzzi World Club is glad to support this event entirely devoted to this unstoppable motorbike.
A journey that will lead us from the Matmata underground homes of the troglodytes built by the Berbers, to the famous Ksar made famous in the first "Star Wars" film, running along salt lakes, travelling in the desert, and walking between the ruins of El Jem, with the beautiful Roman amphitheatre, second only to the Colosseum in size.
Not a large number of kilometers to be covered, about 2000 Km in a small country, a relaxing journey with beautiful roads and excellent hotels.
Here in detail:
