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

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!

  • Lesotho is known as the mountain kingdom of Southern Africa. Well done on that climb to the top. The Honda is a machine and so are you Noraly.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    James HegedusJames Hegedus2 päivää sitten
  • Such a cool video! Really well done! As you got near the top, I could feel the tension! I have driven the Pass many many times but never ridden it. Such a pity that you never went to the pub or met the precious Basotho border control police!

  • 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 Williamson3 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 !!!!

If you are not a rider, this is very good riding, I wonder Noraly what your heart rate was on the assent? Cheers from Canada (:

  • 23 bhp up these slopes should be like a walk in the park for that 250, and if needed, it will always bark when reving it up. I guess top speed must be around 140 to 150 km/h, should be good enough. I need to find a slope for my 125cc and see where the limit is, luckily I have a mad slope a few houses away😅
