DAY 3  Karoo back home King William's Town  326km

Today is the ride back home, tar roads to be avoided.
After a decent nights rest we once again woke up without electricity, lucky my wife switched the kettle on a short while before the electricity went off, so the water in the kettle was still warm enough for a cuppa. 
We got packed and geared up and left the little town of Jansenville towards Somerset East, all back roads.
Evidence of heavy rains/storms recently in that area were visible on the roads.  You had a variety of rocky bits, sandy pieces and ruts thrown into the mix, just the way we like it. 
We enjoyed the ride, it was nice and cool and overcast-ed, so no Karoo sun baking from above.

As we got closer to Somerset East it started to rain, not heavy, just enough to hinder our visibility of the road.  It became an effort to read the road surface.

We briefly stopped in Somerset to refuel and proceeded to Bedford for a well deserved brekkie.

From Bedford we headed straight home, we had urgent matters to attend that came up.  We arrived back home just before 13:00.

We had a ball of a time, the two 250's is more than capable for our style of riding and amazes us each and every time.  They keep putting a huge smile on our faces.  Fuel consumption is a real treat.  We did roughly a 700km round trip and could do a lot more if needed, but this was just right without putting any strain on us or the bikes.  We however need to go back, Wifey needs more parictice in the sand and she is looking forward to it. 

A huge thank you go to our friendly farmer, Bie, for inviting and accepting us with open arms onto his farm, what a beautiful place and area to explore.   Not to mention that exceptionally nice meal we had at his place. 
Bie, baie dankie my vriend, ons waardeer julle gasvryheid en vir die geleentheid om op jou plaas rond te ploeter, dit was voorwaar 'n hoogtepunt op ons trip en Nannie het baie geleer.  Seg vir vroulief baie baie dankie vir 'n uitstekende maal wat ons genuttig het, dit was uit die boeke.  Ons skuld julle groot.  Groetnis vir jou familie, sien weer binnekort.

Thanks to all for taking the time reading this rr, greetings from the VIS ARENDE, we will be back.   :biggrin: :thumleft:

Baie mooi RR. Hou van die bikes en groot respek vir Nannie  :thumleft:
My vrou het ook lank terug bietjie adventure biking probeer. Genadiglik het sy dit gou opgegee. Was net te senutergend vir my.

What a cool report!

This has to be just about the best way to have a meal! I so want to climb into the picture and take a bite.

I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Dankie Snafu.   :thumleft:  :thumleft:

Ja Dewald, ek het weer as tiener en jongman bike gery maar moes toe als verkoop toe ek trou en kind kry.  Prioriteite was eers om vir die gesin te sorg en vir meer as 20 jaar effol gery, net gekwyl oor al die fietse rondom my.  Maar ek het myself belowe ek sal eendag wel weer bike ry.  Nou is ons tyd, en ek moet byse, ek is moers gelukkig vroulief geniet die storie net soveel soos ek, inteendeel, ek dink sy raak nou eers befok oor bike ry.   :eek7:   :lol8:

Hey Arende

Love the Steppenwolf soundtrack on your vid (took me down the vista of years!).

Also the flapping water bottle (some kind of voodoo anti-spill magic); the two big buffalo drolle, and evaporated numberplate (looks better without!)...

Thanks, I see you scrutinized the vid thoroughly.    :thumleft:  :eek7:   :lol8: 

Ja the missus went with speed through a donga in the road, I was behind her and saw the numberplate flying past me, missed me by mm's.   :imaposer:
Already fixed and secured, now waiting for the next donga.   :imaposer:
