In conclusion --  We took the less travelled tweespoor road through the back of Qwa Qwa and Golden Gate. It was awesome riding amongs herdr of Blesbuck -Springbuck -Zebra and Eland-- was a treat to behold the beauty of this area --

 

Also visited the Vulture Restuarant --



Damb --what a freeking Sexy bike --  :peepwall:



Went to take some pics of horses we passed along our route as well --- ;)




All in All a great weeks riding--How priveledged we are to ride in all these areas in a country that holds such beauty and with in our reach --to ride where we can smell the earth - feel the wind enjoy and share with like minded friend's and riders --

Till next time  :mwink:

How do you manage to keep your bike so clean at the end of the ride?

 :thumleft: Great RR and ride!!! I grew up in BHM, Clarens was our 'kuierplek' and the old military border road our favourite playground. I will always love that world!! Lesotho is probably the most beautifull country in the world - if only it could be managed correctly, it may have closed down the French Riviera!!!

Don't be concerned, we've grown up since bots........reaching puberty now.... :mwink:

looking at Blazes' pics, old mill shouldn't be missed - only gonna take strong riders, though, so you're in
