    Couldn't work out much of what was written but if I'm correct it's the road going from Gordon's Bay to Kleinmond.

    You need to go on N2 through Somerset West towards Sir Lowrey's pass and before you go up Sir Lowrey's pass make a right towards Gordon's Bay. Turn left into Main RD and follow that to begin riding this pass. Very cool road. Smooth. Camber is great. True about slow driving motorists. Great views (shark spotting).

    Why do I have the urge now to pack Rose and go check this road for myself?
    Ride with me, drink with me, party with me, make memories with me, defend our lifestyle with me but whatever else you do, never **** with me. I just did not want you to mistake my jovial nature as a weakness. I AM WHAT I AM - A BIKER BY CHOICE.

    Love that road and do it whenever I am down there. Was there on 17th. Public holiday but fortunately very few superbikers who treat it like a racetrack. It is a scenic route of note and should be treated as such. 40kmh cagers I have no problem with. Swift blip of the throttle and you are past them and continue your peaceful ride. But murderous superbikers who virtually run you off the road because you are getting in the way of their race!!! Killarney is there for exactly that purpose. I reserve comment to avoid infraction ... and infarction
    Maturity is a grossly overrated achievement

    A valid point indeed Linus. Clarence drive is one of the best pieces of road we have here in the Cape, however when it's ridden early in the morning to avoid the traffic, the surface remains cold, and if you leave it warm up in the sunshine it gets too busy. The speed limit is 60kmh the whole way so doing it at superbike pace can be costly. I see the posts on facebook the night before the organised ride and the orifficers hide in the bushes along the way on the Sunday morning.
    On Monday you can read on facebook about the roadblocks, speed traps and cameras along the way. Same along Helshoogte which is also a fast sweep, or CampsBay Drive which is just as great a ride.
    Killarney racetrack is all that's left, and what a jol it is... go ahead, why don't you.
    Lost it down the highway.
    Down the dotted line.
    You were going your way.
    I was going mine.

    We only have nice roads But Clarence drive is about the best! Can always return to town via Houwhoek pass, Franschhoek Pass and Helshoogte Pass though

    If you're looking for scenery, try Baden Powell drive. Especially the coastal section.

    You can also keep going south and end up on the M4 to Simonstown. Beautiful.

    That road is a death trap.

    I avoid it by all costs.

    Is it because of traffic during rush hour? Or the sand on the road.

    I drove it while everyone else was as work, so it was very quiet.

    No, it's because that coastal section closely skirts a few urban settlements notorious for their high crime rate.
