1200 GS Adventure
10+ years

Peter Haarhoff, I'm 60, semi retired, enjoy riding, and a member of CMA. Was a cruiser but after touring the country with my wife on a Boulevard [practically breaking her back] and having ridden most of the tar roads in the Cape I bought a Super Tenere so should I come across a dirt road, no problem. After putting on 80 000km [in three years] I regretfully wrote my beloved Tenere off and have now been blessed to replace it with the Adventure. Looking forward to getting to know the BMW family and enjoying new experiences on offer.

Be blessed Peter

My wife and I only moved to the Western Cape 6 weeks  ago. We originate from England but lived in Austria for the last 8 years. I started riding about 35 years ago and after a very long break, started again about 4 years ago to enjoy the fantastic mountain roads in Austria. 

I had never ridden a BMW before arriving here but I am very impressed with the 1200GS and look forward to exploring the Western Cape ( and perhaps beyond) and meeting new friends.

I am currently still awaiting my Traffic Register Number ( a very slow process it seems) but hope to be ‘on the road’ soon.

I'm a noob who has started riding a scooter to beat the traffic. However the bug has bitten and I want to buy and start riding a GS.

Looking for some training, and hoping its on offer somewhere in the club.

Hi all,

Kicked off my riding career way back at the age of 13 on a Honda CD 185. Have progressed since with having owned a Suzuki Bandit 400 and recently sold my Honda Fireblade 1000RR after 7 years of ownership.

I work in the online entertainment industry (no, not as a stripper :P ).

Looking forward to joining club and non-club rides and exploring all that South Africa has to offer.

I came to South Africa 25 years ago and all this time i missed riding a bike. Eventually my children left the nest and last year I bought a bike. Nobody worried about me breaking my neck now.

Hi my name is George Stanley and I am a novice bike rider as it's been a long time since I have been on a bike. Reason for wanting to ride again is to meet up with new people and make new friends. And to get out on the weekends to have a good time.
