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

I love my bikes, not in a strange way but really the freedom and blessing that they bring in being able to experience God's country and the space we have around us. I'm a long time fan of Adventure riding and just recently added the F800GS to my stable to actually move from fan to "participant". Looking forward to not being 'stuck' on just taking the tar road anymore.

Wife and I enjoy touring and just seeing the country on Sophia (yes every bike has a name and a personality) - the trusty old Ducati ST4s and now we look forward to seeing even more of it on our new steed [Gunny - the GS].

I'm a daily bike commuter and am looking forward to learning more about the adventure riding scene from those who've been at it for a while.

My name is Adam Mason,

I've ridden a few classic bikes over the years, but most recently have put a 1960 R27 back on the road with the help of professional mechanics.

I'd like to bring the bike up to an excellent condition, and am hoping to find access to information, advice and spares from the members.

I look forward to the journey!

“Retired but still in good working order!?” : would be a good description.

That’s me not the BM of course.......

Ive had the good fortune to ride m/cycles for many a year. Much of it being commuting, some pleasure and also a little competition. Just a few years ago i owned a F800 which was ridden from UK to Istanbul and back etc.

I enjoy good company, friendship and good riding. Look forward to catch up with you guys.

GSA 1200

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!
