The special delivery - Video to make you smile.

Not sure where to post this, here or in the longer trip reports.

The narrative in this video is minimal, but in Afrikaans and Sotho (the language in Lesotho)

South Africans have a lot of place to ride, and one of the more challenging places would be the backroads of LESOTHO, a mountain Kingdom.

Last year these three mates did a ride, and were caught out by the weather, setting up camp, after setting up camp they asked the local landowner for permission, which was given, they were also received with open arms by the lady at the end of the video.

So they took some pics of her and her kids.

This year, amidst more rain, they returned to take her a framed photograph as a thank you by "Special Delivery"

Take a look, it will reignite your faith in mankind, and also make you grin as a deskbound offroader as they get into and out of some wet spots.

Hope you enjoyed, and please do share.

Glad you guys like it, just what I needed today as well.

Some people just make a difference, here it was both the riders and the locals.

It's enough to make you think that humans might just make it after all.

Naturaly the KLR seemed to have the least amount of problems in the muck and technical riding, and I also noticed the excellent rain gear the KLR rider had over the back pack, rock on my fat bike brother
