I bought a bike in January as I wanted to add more adventure to my life.  I have really been enjoying riding and learning the bike over the last 5 months and I think that by joining the club and riding with fellow like minded individuals will take that enjoyment to the next level.

I am a freelance photographer and lecturer in photography that has decided to get back on a bike after a few years absence. I have always driven smaller engines, lots of offroading and messing about. First time that I have owned a bike  bigger than a 650.  

I am a portrait specialist that work with very old equipment. My topbox will now become the housing for a 1948 Large format camera and all its accouterments. Still figuring out how the hell I am going to fit a nice big sturdy tripod onto the bike.

Hi Ladies & Gents,

My real name is Jonathan Sander, although most folk just call me "Jon". I have been riding motorcycles my whole life, i have been fortunate enough to have owned all different types. Many years ago i used to have a Motorcycle Shop in Witbank, so have a lot of experience with motorcycles & the people who ride them. I have taken part in many "track days" & have also attended the "Mpumalanga Road School"in the Eastern Transvaal, run by Dirk Du Plooy. I have just got my Adventure bike & am looking forward to meeting with new & wonderful people in this Club. I was recently retrenched so am sort of "semi retired" and keen on being a regular attendee on the Club tours & Trips , as i certainly have time on my side at the moment. My wife & daughter are both keen horse riders, although my daughter also loves & rides motorcycles, interestingly my son has no interest in motorcycles.

Hi guys

I have been riding a cruiser for two years now, but I recently decided that I would like to explore more of South Africa on a bike that can do dirt roads and trails, and also handle long distances comfortably.

My friend recommended the model 1150GS as an affordable bike that ticks all the boxes. I have been enjoying exploring local off-road jeeptrack areas and have been thoroughly enjoying it. 

I'm keen to develop my skills and go on plenty of adventures.

I have been riding since 1995, mostly commuting to work and back.
First bike was a Suzuki 850 and a great introduction to riding. Had to trade her in for a responsible car option ;-(.

Eventually got my hands on a small Yamaha TW200 to get to work and back. Since then I have upgraded to the F650GS  (Her name is Mia) and loving it.
Now ready to try my hand at off road. Loving the dirt so far.

See you on the road...

Hi there.

My name is Bev. I have been riding for many years, but have never owned a 'modern' bike, so am very excited to have recently purchased my dream bike - the F650GS - something I have been wanting for about 2 years.

I own a 1935 Triumph - 250 cc's, on which I have been riding for many years, having completed 19 DJs and approximately 7 Fairest Cape time trial / regularity rallies. I am an active member of the Triumph Owners Club as well as the Vintage Motorcycle Club and am really looking forward to now being a member of the BMW Club.

Hi All, my name is Sorina and have been riding different kinds of bike since I was 16 years old.  My riding was / is mostly off road with plastic bikes but bought a F700 2 years ago to enjoy the best of both worlds.  My work is quite demanding, so don't get as much time for riding as I would like to, but do get out some weekends if I am home base.  Looking forward to meeting you guys.
