Did it once many years ago on my R80GS with GlenInk. One of the most magnificent views you'll ever see.

Build a sidecar they said. It will be fun they said. Ja-nee !

The only time I ever did it was on our Ben10 trip, and it was raining and very misty... so new views. Just means I'll have to go do it again! :ricky:

Definitely a must-do pass in SA.

And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."

Hope they don't go fix it up too good, because that is/was the thing about Bastervoetpad... the challenge.

That eastern descent used to take about 2 to 3 hours in a 4x4. It now takes just 1.5 hours.
Having said that, it will only take one set of good summer storms to reduce back to what it was. We drove it 10 days ago
