Definitely, although the transmitter installation was not there when I rode it 10 years ago.
Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

The pass is on the road between Sehonghong  & Ramatseliso's Gate.
Can't check those coords on my phone right now but think I have a track on my computer at home

Thanks got it. 

Added it to my gps list of passes: Matebeng pass

When is a pass defined as a pass?  The road at Sehonghong is marked as a pass in T4A but looks more like a downhill than a pass to me?

A mountain pass is a navigable route through a mountain range or over a ridge. Since many of the world's mountain ranges have presented formidable barriers to travel, passes have been important since before recorded history, and have played a key role in trade, war, and migration. At lower elevations it may be called a hill pass. The highest vehicle-accessible pass in the world appears to be Mana Pass, located in the Himalayas on the border between India and Tibet.
