Karoo - Day3 Leg1 - Pass Kids as we leave

We woke up to cold and fresh but crisp and sunny winters morning. We had a really good breakfast and planned our route to Bloemfontein. The goal was again to maximize dirt road, but we had to balance that against arrival time as we were to meet our friends at 16:30 odd, so had to put some tar sections in just to ensure we made it on time.

As we pulled out of the lodge, we passed a pre-primary school and based on previous experience in Africa with Kids (see Kids in Africa are Happy and love motorcycles), where they simply love motorbikes, we felt we had to drive past twice and get them happy and excited. So Richard went back and rode past revving the bike and the kids loved it. I took the pictures. This is where a good zoom would have been fantastic.

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.

Richard goes past the kids again attracting attention

Now they are really keen on watching the bike and all rush over to the side of the road

Big excitement for their day
