Sani lyk mooi....amper 'n highway :thumleft:

Nee woody1, dit is rerig maklik. Die eerste deel is redelik klipperig, maar dan is dit net baie lekker. So bietjie van n ander story as hy nat is, maar ook nie te moeilik nie.

Just some more of our second day in Lesotho... :thumleft:




Friendly locals, actually we never encountered any negative vibes in Lesotho.




One of many broken/abondoned vehicles along the roads. (n paar klippe teen die voorruit ook gekry)


These locals were trying their utmost to take me out.


Would love to know what bread these dogs are. Want hulle is f@kken hard...

Not sure if it's a filter on the camera, but Lesotho looks extremely dry.

Where ever we rode, very dry, Katse dam levels low.

Day 5 – Semonkong to Matatiele

The next morning 2StrokeDan’s tyre was completely deflated and fixing it became our first priority. We took turns pumping the tyre as the others felt for the hole. We eventually found it, fixed it, and as we were throwing soapy water over the repair, I saw another hole bubbling about 2 inches away from the one we had just fixed. Shortly after, we had that one fixed as well, and we descended the hill towards breakfast.





Repairing the tyre was a quick job, thanks to tubeless.








Our hut for the evening.





At breakfast, we met the manager and asked where we could get fuel. He said that he had sent out one of his guys to go source us a jerry can or two. Around 08:30 we got news of a man in town named Serami who had fuel. We packed our bikes and went off looking for our next fuel source.
Serami, and I hope the spelling of this name is correct, was one super-friendly bloke. When we arrived, there were about five or six men standing around a small tin building. I asked if I could speak to Serami and they all burst out laughing. I first thought that I had mispronounced his name or something and asked if everything was ok. Serami then stepped forward and wanted to know how I knew his name. After explaining the situation, we got down to business. We enquired about the price of his fuel and if it was clean. He politely replied that he was asking more than what you would usually pay for fuel, but that this was his business. He informed us that his asking price was R16/l, and also promised that the fuel was clean. Seeing that this was similar to what we were paying for fuel in SA, we had no problem with the price.  ;D






Happy for fuel and ready to go.

It was a beautiful day, our tanks were full but unfortunately, we did not have enough time to do the planned route to Matatiele, so we decided to do a quick trip to the Semonkong waterfall.


Dries making us laugh.


This place is magical.




Dit is baie hoog daar af.



I could have spent the whole day at the waterfall and would have loved to have walked down, but time was not on our side and this was a bike trip. So off we went to our next destination – Matatiele.

Ek sien julle gebruik tubeless repair.  Vertel bietjie hoe julle die tyre tubeless gemaak het? Tubliss miskien?
