'72 Triumph Bonneville
10+ years

Greetings to All,

I'm a retired pilot and live in Stellenbosch.

My bike collection consists of a 1972 Triumph Bonneville (customised as a cafe racer), a 1936 Triumph Tiger 80 and a 1913 Royal Enfield.

Having recently sold my 2012 Triumph Speed Triple, my curiosity about off-road bikes has been ignited by a friend who rides a 1200GS and I've been contemplating buying one.

I've spent the last few hours looking through some of the forums here which are full of interesting and useful information.

I look forward to reading more posts and interacting with the members.

Hi I am Petrus Jordaan. I am riding a 2011 R1200 GS Adventure. Its the first adventure type bike for me. My previous bike was a ZX14.

I am married to Charleen Jordaan who also loves biking. She always like riding with me as pillion but hopefully that will change as she wants to be riding a bike of her own someday.

We love doing long trips with the bike. We would love to do some offroad trips with the BMW Motorrad club where we could be taught the know hows of off road riding and get to meet new friends.

I am currently riding for a MC club but that might

Hi, I like riding over difficult terrain, though I'm not very good at it yet - still learning! I'm in love with my F800 GS Adventure (her name is Calypso) which is basically an oversized scrambler cheeky

Ek geniet motorfiets ry wanneer ek tyd het (meestal in die winter). Ek is oorspronklik van Montagu, maar woon & werk deesdae in De Doorns.

Ek het informasie gesoek i.v.m die sluiting van Kingtek Motorcycles waar ek gewoonlik my motorfiets laat diens het en alle inligting daaroor op hierdie webwerf gelees. Ek dink hierdie webwerf kan 'n goeie toekomstige bron van informasie vir my wees.

Ek moes vandag die jare tel hoe lank ek al motorfiets ry en dis 33 jaar! Ek het as kind op ons plaas op 10 jarige ouderdom begin met 'n Honda XL185S en deur die jare verskeie motorfietse besit. Ek is egter mal oor my K1200RS! Sal haar nie sommer laat gaan nie!

My name is Adrian Alvarez, I'm Argentine, married and with two beautiful little boys.

Moved to SA about 4 years ago and recently relocated from Joburg to Stellenbosch. 

My first bike was a the F800GS 30 years anniversary back in 2010. Had to sell the bike after a few months. After a year I had the opportunity to buy a bike again and I decided to go for a Yamaha Fazer 1000 Sport which I had for almost 3 years. In 2014 when my eldest son was born I decided to sell the bike telling myself that I had to be a responsible father " ;)  this lasted about 3 months and then I bought a small Honda Tornado 250 ( I couldn't be without a bike anymore) and 3 months afterwards I sold it because me and my family were relocating to South Africa.

In 2017 I was blessed with the opportunity to buy a bike and I decided to go back to the first love (BMW) and I was able to afford my dream bike (R1200 GSA) and I bought the R1200 GSA triple black edition.

I'm passionate about riding and exploring the world, I had my first off-road experience last year in the GS Trophy at Badplass last year and after that I realized how much I enjoy off-road riding so I did an intermediate off-road riding course with Jo Rust that help me to improve my riding skills. 

I would love to explore the beautiful western cape with a nice group of people which I'm looking forward to meet through the BMW community here in the WC.

Looking forward to meeting you all soon.

Kind regards,

Adrian Alvarez
