Attempt to ride Sani Pass on a Honda CRF250L - it's HECTIC!! [S5 - Eps. 14]

318 661 Näkymät

In this episode I am attempting to scale the hardest mountain pass of South Africa: Sani Pass. Right at the border between South Africa and Lesotho lies this pass, and it is not for the faint hearted. These were the steepest, most washed away tracks I've ever attempted and without the option to slow down or pause, it was an adrenaline filled race to the top. HECTIC!

  • Biggest thumbs up for you Noraly.

  • You should be very proud of yourself. I really admire your riding. Fantastic. Nearly 40 years ago, my girlfriend and I did some of the rocky unpaved passes in the Alps, but they looked nothing like as bad as that. The CRF 250 was such a good choice because it's so light. Coming down though is much scarier than going up. We were on a Suzuki GSX1100ESD (totally unsuitable) with tank bag, panniers and a full rack. We're all bloody mad aren't we, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

  • I've just made it to the top with you here on this comment.. You were hyperventilating and I'm over here sucked into everything, listening to the gears, (being a medic and athlete, running everything through my mind)... You get to the top and you're happy and relieved... I'm stoked with joy too. Hell yea!! Congrats!! I was on the edge of my chair rooting for you! Great job! Now let's ride that back wheel back down.. 😁💯🌈👊👊👊💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

  • The Sani pass was used by an elderly South African couple to trail a 1981 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit for a journey from Cape Town to Europe. If the Rolls could do the Sani pass then I think a motorbike could also do it. Their journey is to be seen on FIworld.

  • Noraly , dit is ongewoon goed wat jij hier doet. Savannah is zeker goede aankoop. Heb in Europa offroad gereden en nog wel met Vfr 800. Dat was wat maar lijkt niet op deze pas. Het gevoel is , je moet door terug bestaat niet. Alsof ik zelf op de motor zit. Ik blijf kijken . Top !

  • You are one really tough lady and a true warrior, Noraly. I kept thinking, “You know, you have to come back down again too?” And, gravity is NOT your friend in that really gnarly stuff. You’re gunna need new tires soon. This will be a story for your grandchildren some day.

  • This video is a testament to Noraly’s riding skills which are amazing but also to the build quality of Savannah. She trusted her life to her machine and it performed beautifully. 99 riders out of 100 would have ended up on the ground. What a day!

    Pete_ KPete_ K6 päivää sitten
    • "99 riders out of 100 would have ended up on the ground." Not me, I would have turned around and headed home ;^). Noraly and that little Honda keep impressing me! The title to the next episode (15) says that Naude's Nek Pass is worse than Sani, I'm almost afraid to watch it 😎

  • Savannah brings back memories of my Honda dirt bike l rode and raced in my younger days. I would take it to work with me in the back of my truck then after work l would drive for a hour to our practice track and l would ride until it was dark. Then l would find a race to go to on the weekends. Fond memories.

  • Sunny pass sunny pass sunny pass and it just a moment of touch and go. To me, it's really disheartening. (Please don't show me the height, stiffness and bike, Please. I ..................). Just only an episode of your entire episodes of every season, I disliked. Watched each and every episode. Love yoy. Love from India. Happy to see you again on the road.

  • Wow! So beautiful GoPro does not do that road/Trail justice but your huffing puffin going up definitely put it more in perspective Great job.👍👍👍

  • Oh my gosh! You are sooo brave 😎 It was freaking me out how close you got to the edge sometimes (at least it looked like "one more cm and you're falling off") but yeah, you did it! Very tough. 💪 How long did it actually take you to get to the top? How many km is that stretch?

  • YOU are insane !!!! Having been up there in a 4x4 I feel EVERY bump you do - - NOT for weaklings. I LOVE insanity - keeps things real !!!! ;-)

    Peter WilliamsonPeter Williamson8 päivää sitten
    • Riding that close the edges is insane !!! One rock in the wrong place - - - - Down is ALWAYS worse, Adrenaline is diluted, excitement has faded, fear kicks in, anticipation is gone. Honda Made a Good motor cycle ;-) The very lightness was both an advantage and disadvantage. Front brake is a NO NO on a downhill !!! A GPS altitude on each corner would REALLY have made an impression on HOW STEEP it really is. Well Done. I am humbled by your conquest !!!!
