Karoo - Day3 Leg11 - More buck & grass

One of the last stretches in the Orange Free State towards Bloemfontein, took us over flat flat land, past buck, and huge open fields of grass on long dusty roads. A nice easy ride and we could make good time on the dirt roads there. We needed to because we had to get to meet all our old school mates for a drink at about 6pm so we needed to get there around 4pm to park up the bikes and freshen up.

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.
Nice flat roads meant we could make good time
We stumbled upon some buck on the side of the road
Majestic beasts
Looking the other way was vast fields of dense yellowish thatch type grass
Thirsty work this dusty adventure riding! We were to make up for it with beer later!
Buck in the very far distance now as they shy away from the bikes
Springbok also heading away from the bikes

Jumping and "pronking" as they go.

The Orange free State - flat as can be with the occasional hill

Back onto the tar, we are nearly in Bloemfontein now.
