Thanks for sharing , lekker report  :thumleft:

but where the pics  ???

I had all intention to take lots of pics but I was waiting to catch the sadistic bastard that put all the rocks there first.  :laughing4: Dunno but the pics just didnt happen.

BM Brilliant report must admit tho thats put me off Sani.... ???

Yep when you on solo and you have all these tumbles the pics dont do it justice just the way you express it does it all.... :thumleft: :mwink:

You still had a wonderful experience.... meeting real and warm people.... :thumleft:

Great RR  :thumleft:  Yeah, some pics would be nice!!

That Sani is a bugger.  Guess what, they'll be grading the road this week and everyone going up there next week is going to wonder what the fuss was about!  I've also ridden it loose and rocky on a 1200GS - hard work indeed.  It was over one Easter holiday, so there were thousands (ok, a bit fever) 4x4's coming down the mountain as we were going up.  Difficult enough, but they were taking all the nice lines  :patch:

Aces!
Everyone I come across in cages they bought
they think of me and my wandering
but I'm never what they thought
got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts
I'm alive...

Great report, I thought your description of sucking oxygen like Joos was hilarious!

Kudos to you for going it alone. Sometimes its daunting to push on so I fully understood why you turned back. Looking forward to the sequel.

Nice, but eina Mike.  ::)

It seems Sani has cycles, and at the moment it must be low, 'cos far better riders than me seem to have sukkeled lately.

I think the last time I did was on my KLE (five years ago) and it was easy peasy. Time before that I did it on a Kymco 250 scooter - no problems other than a worn CVT belt 'cos of my weight.

But to hear these stories, Sani is not the Sani I know - but someone says it is being scraped ?

Maybe the start of the next good cycle ?
