Hi, I'm new to the adventure but looking forward to great times with friends on the bike. Can be considered on the older side to start with this, but what is life without a new challenge every now and then. Work in Stellenbosch, live in Brackenfell. I'm a serious amateur photographer, active member of PSSA. We camp regularly - once a month. I have a lovely wife and 3 kids - two out of the house and busy with their own careers. Youngster in high school.
Looking to meet up with other bikers, for day/weekend rides.

HI.

We moved from Kwazulu Natal back to the Western Cape after 4 years away.  My wife and I are very soft riders riding for pleasure.  I would like to pick up more experience on gravel with her as passanger.  Ive done some gravel with my wife, but mostly when I am on my own.

Ive only started doing adventure riding in the beginning of 2017.

We are looking forward to meeting the members and participating in some rides with you all.

Hi all, I am from Germany and moved to Cape Town in Jan 2007. I am riding since school, but I had my first off-road experience last year in Nelson Creek - since then I am hooked to it and love to experience the beatutiful country with my bike. Ride on Boris

I am new so is the bike and want to explore the outdoors . 

 

I'm a 56 year old male that's been working abroad for more than half of my working life. I live alone in Cape Town, when I'm there, and returned to riding 5 years ago after more than 15 years. I ride very infrequently due to my work commitments and regard myself as a beginner rider.

Good day. Recently sold H D night rod special and purchased

Hi I am Robert Fooy  and I stay in Somerset West. I have been riding seriously for the last few years. I enjoy the outdoors and most holidays are spent driving the back roads with my 4X4 in SA and over the border.

I decided to join the club hoping to meet like minded people with whom I can enjoy the outdoor life style in this great county of ours. 

Moved from the North to CY. Mostly ride single but my son joins me on KTM 1190 Adv. Not serious gravel traveller. More touring on all roads. Been to GSTrophy in 2015. Done basic and intermediate offroad course at Motorrad Academy (Thomas Böhm). Enjoy responsible driving. 62 years young.
Real Name - Paul Osborne. Old rider (many years ago) with new passion for riding. Bought the bike with the intent of riding weekends with my wife.

I'm Jacques born in Beaufort up to 7 year old then moved to Oudtshoorn where I got my 1st scooter Honda 50cc. 12 years old I bought my 1st Bike a Suzuki GP 125, after a meeting with a drum in the middle of the road the Municipality made it possible that I can buy myself a FZR 400 at the age of 16. It was not long after that I met a girl that was riding the fzr 1000 at that time. Her dad bought her a brand new fireblade for her birthday and gave me the opportunity to buy the 1000, so I did. That led to my 1st car money when I had to go to varsity. Had a couple of cheapies afterwards but it was the XR500 that stole my heart on the dirt roads. So I said 1 day I will be riding a big adventure bike. So about 5 years later I bought my GS ADVENTURE this weekend and me and my Fiance is loving every second of it.
