Karoo - Day1 Leg1 - Meeting up

On a misty morning in Cape Town during September 2011 it was time to fire up the bikes and head off into the Karoo for a six day epic journey. The goal was to get to Bloemfontein over three days via Sutherland, maximizing dirt road, and then head back on the other side of the main N1 back down through the Karoo to Cape Town in another three days via Prince Albert.

We met at the Services leaving Cape Town, had a coffee and then rode off into the rising sun up towards Du Toits kloof pass, taking the old windy road over the mountain.

This is the daily blog from Africa4Adventure.com. A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011.
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
Good morning! Richard on his 800GS
