Day 17 - Leg 7 - Harder track than it looks

This continues the series of my Motorcycle Adventure travels from Durban to Lesotho which was the third goal, over a week. Details of the "" whole trip here.

Once we reached the waterfall on the road, there was a track leading down to the actual view point. Rob was in front and started going down on the bike so Charles followed him. Of course with a pillion on the back and being on a bigger 1150 it was more difficult so Charles passed him and carried on going.

Rob then decided not to carry on and just walk the rest so it would be easier all round, and when Charles realised it was already beginning to get into more rocky and into slightly steeper terrain. Feeling weak with a cold coming on, he decided not to try and ride the bike down to the bottom or try and turn it round but just to walk it round to get out. It needed two people to help as the road was in a bit of a rut and not as easy as these pictures make it out to be! (Excuses!!) Anywat we turned the bike around and then left them and walked down to the waterfall.
Heading down to the waterfall on a track

Rob and Moira decided to stop and walk down

The path was getting more and more rocky and a bit tricky

So we decided to stop and all walk

Manual turning the bike around as I felt a bit sick and too weak to blast round

These two were up to their neck in grass it was so deep! :-)
