Hi guys

I have been riding a cruiser for two years now, but I recently decided that I would like to explore more of South Africa on a bike that can do dirt roads and trails, and also handle long distances comfortably.

My friend recommended the model 1150GS as an affordable bike that ticks all the boxes. I have been enjoying exploring local off-road jeeptrack areas and have been thoroughly enjoying it. 

I'm keen to develop my skills and go on plenty of adventures.

New to the biking scene - still only a pillion at this stage but plans are in action to change that very soon :-)

I'm an outdoors person. Love to hike, camp and go for bike rides.

I have been riding since 1995, mostly commuting to work and back.
First bike was a Suzuki 850 and a great introduction to riding. Had to trade her in for a responsible car option ;-(.

Eventually got my hands on a small Yamaha TW200 to get to work and back. Since then I have upgraded to the F650GS  (Her name is Mia) and loving it.
Now ready to try my hand at off road. Loving the dirt so far.

See you on the road...

Hi there.

My name is Bev. I have been riding for many years, but have never owned a 'modern' bike, so am very excited to have recently purchased my dream bike - the F650GS - something I have been wanting for about 2 years.

I own a 1935 Triumph - 250 cc's, on which I have been riding for many years, having completed 19 DJs and approximately 7 Fairest Cape time trial / regularity rallies. I am an active member of the Triumph Owners Club as well as the Vintage Motorcycle Club and am really looking forward to now being a member of the BMW Club.

Hi All, my name is Sorina and have been riding different kinds of bike since I was 16 years old.  My riding was / is mostly off road with plastic bikes but bought a F700 2 years ago to enjoy the best of both worlds.  My work is quite demanding, so don't get as much time for riding as I would like to, but do get out some weekends if I am home base.  Looking forward to meeting you guys.

I live in Cape Town (have been in the Cape for 15 years), have a wonderfully crazy adventuring family and run my own consulting business in the environmental field.  

I am new to biking and I am continually taking training courses and building up saddle time with experienced and patient riders to improve my skills and experience.   I use my bike daily for commute as well as site visits (I am in the environmental field) and adventure rides and and completely addicted to the joy of riding.  I thoroughly enjoy adventure tours and weekend trips and find the technical terrain and exercises most challenging but also most rewarding!

Hi, my name is Steve. I ride with the Old Timers who are members of your club. I have a great passion for riding.

Unfortunately my work dictates my time on the road but I try to ride as often as I can although I commute daily with my bike. I enjoy breakfast runs. My wife Gillian enjoy coming with me - the best pillion rider ever!

Looking forward to becoming a member

thank you

Use bike for commuting but keen to get away esp off-road  but not exclusively.  Willing to camp if necessary. Have soft luggage.

Also do some 4x4 and camping trips in my trusted Pajero.

Live in Hout Bay- no friends with motorcycles but lots of cycling buddies!

Ride to appreciate the landscape and not just for the sake of covering as much distance as possible.

My wife has done a trip with me but never volunteers or asks for a ride.

Hiya Fellow Bikers

Name is Charles. I am a reformed Super biker due to environment change i.e. now reside on the West Coast Western Cape. Must say a wise decision moving from Super bike to Adventure bike considering distances that need to be covered here and absolutelly love it. Wife loves riding with and we have a lot of country side to cover.

Would certainly enjoy falling in with any rides planned for a day with other Adventure riders.
