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

F 650 GS
0-3 months

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

Dakar 650 2004
6-12 months

Recently moved to the Cape (Jan 2017) and even more recently upgraded to a Dakar 650. Prior to that I'd been riding scramblers around the farm for years and less frequently my old man's 1150 GS. Bit of a heavy bike for my skill level and requirements though so decided a 650 would be a better fit!

Looking to meet and learn from anyone who's friendly and willing!

1200 GS
10+ years

I am known as "The Otter Man" and have been riding m/cycles since about 1973.

I've owned quite a few in my time ( Honda Mini Trail, Honda Dax, Suzuki RV 90, Yamaha RD 400, Yamaha XT500, Honda XR500, Honda XL 500, Honda XR200, Honda CR250, Honda 1100 Shadow, BMW R80, Husquvarna SM 610, BMW 1200 GS). I still ride the Husky to shake my fillings and throw it around when I'm feeling boisterous.

I'm really enjoying the 1200 GS and doing many outrides on tar and dirt with good friends.

My next machine? -  undoubtedly the newest available 1200 GSA with Full Spec for moi and a factory lowered 310 for my vertically challenged Wingman.

1200 GS Adventure

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.
