I am a newcomer to South Africa, and look forward to discovering the country via motorcycle touring and adventure rides. I have over 40 years of riding experience on various road and off-road bikes.  My wife and I often travel together  and are interested in trips and travel that include pillion riders.

Complete newbie, looking to get into the intimidating world of motorcycling largely for logistical reasons - daily commute and weekly run to Hermanus to visit the GF. Live in Cape Town, passionate about the environment and climate change and enjoy a spot of fishing.

1200GS LC

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
