GSA 1200
0-3 months

I used to ride many moons ago, mostly commuting on 350 road bike.

Recently took the bold step and bought a GSA 1200 and am keen to do some exploring and off road riding. Very much a novice with lots to learn.

I started biking at the age of 12 on a AJS 500 that my Dad bought to run around on the farm (1970). At Varsity I bought a XT500 and used that for a number of years, as well as a clapped out Suzuki RM250 with which I fooled around in the dirt and mud. Then I married my better half and sold the bikes. About 5 years ago I got totally fed up with Cape Town traffic and I bought a 1998 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 - a 95th Anniversary Edition. I then bought a 1941 Harley Davidson WL and restored the bike to its original WW2 condition (as used by the SAUDF in East Africa, Madagascar and North Africa). And when the Sportster's clutch packed up,  I splurged and bought a new F800GS. What a magnificent bike!

I've been riding Harleys for a couple of years having come to motorcycling late in life (age 52+) but need the versitility of a BMW to get down mountain tracks as well as cruise so i bought the GS about 4 months ago and still own the HD Road King. I would appreciate advice and training on off-roading and generally in handling my bike better

Not experienced biker. I only started riding 8 years ago in which I did not do more than 12000kms. Enjoy gravel but still scared. I want to spend more time on the bike and hopefully get rid of my fears.

My name is Alex, I fell in love with motorcycling when I was 16 after my brother had got a 125cc big boy scrambler. After two days of asking him to ride it he finally let me and from there on I was hooked. I got a 125cc for about 2 years then from there I rode my dads yamaha R1 for about 6 months and decided to stop for my own safety. The next bike was a 1999 Suzuki DR650  which I owned for two years and by far the best bike I've ever owned. After the DR I swopped her for a Yamaha FZS 1000 which was perfect for long rides and communiting in the city. Now I'm back to the DR650 and also on my dads 2012 GS 1200 which is an absolute dream (still prefer the DR)

My name is Lizette, I live in Fishhoek. I started riding about 3.5 years ago on a Honda CTX200 Bushlander. Upgraded to a F700GS today. Unfortunately most kilos are added by commuting to town, although there is some time for weekend trips and in the not too far future hopefully longer trips. Need to build confidence on the new bike first. 

I'm looking forward to learning from this forum. 

Kind Regards

I am a complete newbie. The decision to buy the bike was quite impulsive. I took longer than an hour to get home after work for the umpteenth time on a route that should not take more than 15 minutes. 

Dis nou klaar.

So I bought the bike. 

That, and I want to ride to the Okavango Delta in two years' time on a bike. Bucket list.

So, I think I need all the advice I can get laugh
