A big disappointment. Yes the scenery is great, but as a (sportsbike) motorcycling experience it is spoiled by a poor road surface and fallen rocks. The overhanging rock is very unstable which means that after rain/wind/cold temps there is a lot of debris on the road leading to a lack of confidence about what hazzards lie around the next inevitably blind corner. No curb, no barriers, and no warnings. And there is (now?) supposed to be a 60 kph speed limit!
There are so many other great roads in this area for the motorcyclist. My advise would be to go elsewhere unless you want to just poot along and watch the scenery. Even then, youll have to watch out. And I did it on a frigid April morning with no cars. Gawd knows what its like in the tourist season!
