KZN - Sani Pass 19-20 May, 2012
« on: May 21, 2012, 08:02:31 am »
For those that could'nt make the trip this is what you missed  :biggrin:
When Mr. G and I departed the weather was looking a bit threatening. This was temporary however and
by 10h00 the clouds had dissipated and we were well on our way in enjoying the secondary roads of our
spectacular province with big grins on our faces.
The route there was scenic with a bit of gravel on the way, ditto for the way back via dirt farmroads
we got to Boston and carried on.
Sani was easily manageable on our trusty XR650L's, no spills or falls were recorded. The pass is
like a bit of marbles in places due to ongoing roadworks. Pictures speak louder than words  :ricky:

Nice pics guys, glad you had good weather  :thumleft:

Sani is always a good ride, no matter how often you do it.
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

How long did the round trip take?

We took it easy over two days, Sani itself was about 30 minutes up fro the SA Border post including
some stops for taking a few pics. Strangely i found coming down the next day easier than going up.

Dig the one of Mr.G and the icicle, that's why you transformed to a Yeti for the rest of the weekend!  :imaposer:
Nice pics Mr.G, it was good to ride Sani in your company.
