    I am continually impressed with the quality and content of the photos that advriders post. Posts such as these constantly pry me up and motivate me when I'm feeling sedentary to never stop traveling. To educate myself about the world and people within it. And when I can't, I travel through all of you with posts and pics like these.

    Cheers

    Absolutely awesome report. I don't know if I would trust my GS to that little boat, but I guess it is better than turning around and going back.

    What a sense of achievement after doing things like that.....

    Can't wait for day 3

    Sweet. That is awesome. Waiting on day 3. They bring back memories. Went past the Katse dam in 1991 when they were building it. It had rained for 2 weeks and it took us 8 hours to travel 12km in 2 Land Rovers and a Range Rover. I will never forget that muddy road.

    lesotho definately rates as the best trip ive done
    interestingly enough
    when we did that trip last year we met the same old dude that was riding the xt 500 his name is Henry we bumped into him in a pub in lady grey on our way back from lesotho and ended up having supper with him he knows
    that whole area from the trankei up so well very good guy to have a few beers with, a wealth of info and funny stories also an interesting conspiracy theory about the katse dam and a german helicopter
    looking forward to day three:D

    Waaaaay cool!
    I really like the map at the start of the report. ItÂ’s one thing to see great pix of awesome riding destinations but when shown where the place is it seem much closer and more doable.
    Great report,
    Thanks
