Hi, I am planning to ride the Sani Pass 27th August 2018. Does anyone have any recent information in the pass? Will be riding from Amanzimtoti side with a GS1200. Thanks, Olaf

Very rocky with large rocks. Just take it easy and rest on the corners. Take someone with in case. Do it on a sunny day.  Enjoy !!!

I did it last year, very easy now that they have graded it, there are two  sections on the very lower approaches oyu need ot be wary of- They are drain pipes that have been exposed by the grading and they have holes in.

Sadly, Sani is but a shadow of what it once was.
Your real danger comes form tourists in their '4x4' rental  VW polo's and  small 1600cc Toyota sedans.
As well as the many taxis that choose their line irrespective of whoever else is on the road.

The river fords never get deep, the top three corners need care and bit of momentum.
I'd say you can do it alone, there's so much traffic, you are never quite alone anyway even if you want to be alone.
And there's is always many willing helpers on the road.

Bikes are no longer a novelty. so no one pays you any attention.

Anyone can ride a bike fast....   But can you ride your bike real slow???
