Route around Klein Karoo
« on: May 31, 2012, 01:27:51 pm »
I have recently received my GS800 and like any new kid on the block i am now exploring routes for chilled riding.
I have a small farm just outside the Seweweekspoort and i think it is very well placed as a base to tour from.
Many day trips or overnight trips can be arranged.
Some ideas would be:
1. My place (Opsoek valley) via Hoeko valley to Ladismith to Van Wycksdorp and head onto Rooiberg pass to Calitzdorp. A short tar drive over the Huis rivier pass back home.
2. Leave my place and head out to swartberg pass via Groenfontien road past Redstone hills etc. Either stay over in the hell or move onto Prince Albert.
Head home from there or back to my place for further excurtions.

Would this interest anyone?

Yes!  Sounds good.  Problem is my little bike is not very fast. 
Never underestimate the power of kindness!

You've got my attention.  Timing dependent.  We are planning to get out to that part of the woods, but have no concrte plans as yet.

We do lots of chilled stuff check-out www.dualbikers.blogspot.com
