Pretoria to Katsi Dam (Lesotho). I missed the turn after morning fuel up. Followed what I thought was a couple of our guys and when I got closer noticed they had panniers!!! Zoomed out on the GPS, found the track, cut across and joined the track again. Enjoyed the rest of the morning ride with Rick the Canadian. Lunch then border crossing into Lesotho. First real taste of old Africa. Unbelieveably beautiful country. Started raining and we started climbing. What an epic road, snow at the top of one pass and a rather chilly 2 degrees.
Accident waiting to happen
Stopped to take some photos and a ute came past at warp 9…thought “accident waiting to happen”. Ten minutes later came round a corner and there it was, on its side, load of tiles strewn over the road, mud, dirt, bits of car everywhere. Helped extract the three people in the car who amazingly were OK. Continued my ride being very careful to avoid fallen rocks, horses, donkeys, sheep and people on and near the road. Caught up with Garry the Scott, whom I’d met in 2010 on our first trip and rode that last stretch with him. What an awesome day, thank you Motoaventures and I am so looking forward to the ride tomorrow.
