Karoo - Day1 Leg28 - Find Jupiter

We knew we were staying at the Jupiter Guest-house and restaurant but also knew we were very low on petrol so decided to get in quick in case they were not open early in the morning. We just managed to fill up before the garage closed and went around the corner to the Jupiter and booked in. We moved the bikes around the back near our accommodation and wondered how cold it was going to get that night, as this town was predicting an overnight low of -5C (in September -Spring here). After some red wine and excellent Karoo lamb chops we retired to bed very tired and satisfied it had been an awesome days riding. More to come tomorrow! bring it on!

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
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.
We caught the garage owner just about to lock up at 6pm but he very kindly offered to fill up the bikes

Arriving at the guest house
We had made it - quite a long haul and we were tired and needed food and beer/wine

Nice to see Bikers welcome! Both on road and dual purpose
This town has the reputation of being the coldest town in winter in SA, and tonight was going to be -5
Cool and welcoming accommodation - rooms looked warm and comfortable too
