This past weekend we had our first national KLR get-together with KLR owners from all nine provinces of South Africa attending. The venue was the beautiful camping site at Gariep Dam in the Southern Free State.
With rain until Friday morning we expected the worst, but Fortune smiled at us and for the duration of the weekend we had sunshine and nights filled with stars.
The few photographs will tell the story of our ride there, the fun we had until it was time to pack and go home.
