Karoo - Day4 Leg3 - Cross the Orange river

In what seemed like a flash we had reached the Orange river which is the border of the Free State province and the Northern Cape. It is amazing how quickly the Karoo comes up once you leave Bloemfontein. It started getting a little windy on this road and i remember riding at a bit of an angle across the wind for a while, but once we got to Colesburg we got inside for a bite to eat and waited for the worst to blow over.

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.
