Looking at the photographic highlights of day six of the 2017 Honda Quest. The Honda Quest managed to do what few others have done: Not only did they conquer the notoriously difficult Van Zyl’s Pass, but they did it as a group of 22 riders on big adventure bikes suffering no damage or injury to anyone.

It’s a a classic extreme road, but not really a road, just a route made over the mountain by Ben van Zyl and his team in 1965. The outrageously steep pass itself is a pure adrenaline rush, but the lead-up route is 10-15km of hard driving, dodging its way through boulders, rocks, ravines and badlands.
