I went on an exploring ride to Lesotho today.
There is a valley about 7km north of Ramabanta that I wanted to explore for a long time. I have been thru this valley a few times on the Africa Twin and has seen many single track paths that needed to be explored. So today I took the 500 and boy o boy, did I discover the most amazing places.
I will let the pictures tell the story.

Simply beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

Some of those look quite gnarly, but nothing that that bike can't handle, I'm sure. You have me envious ;)

We came through that area with Roof 2012 I think? Ramabanta was a refuel and thereafter Baboons and finish at Semokong

Hey Losper ... when did you do this ... did you keep the 300 ?

Is that area in the Jockstrap Pass direction or which way?

Hi Sithe, I did this ride last weekend. Yes I still have my 300 but everybody in our riding group has bought 500's. The 500's are opening up a whole new world of riding possibilities that is not possible on the big bikes and the 300's. We are doing these stunning rides on a regular basis and we are thoroughly enjoying ourselfs.
This valley is about 7km north of Ramabanta and about 1km south of Matsieng. I can email you the gpx track if you want.
