Rob Taylor Rides Sani Pass

In response to a newsletter I sent out for our photography business in which I had mentioned our ride up Sani Pass, friend, fellow motorcyclist and pilot, Rob Taylor sent us a few photographs of a trip he did some years back. Rob has since replaced his BMW GS with a newer one (I think the new one is a 2016 model) but the trip up the pass went just fine. Coming down was a little trickier and, because of the highish gearing on the BMW, he needed to do some of the steeper bits with the clutch in, using the brakes to keep things under control. All was fine until the first river crossing when the cold water cooled the discs unevenly, distorting them. An expensive lesson…

Thanks for the pics Rob.
