Recently retired after 40 years as a banker. I am now looking to enjoy the outdoors more than before. Riding now for 36 months and loving it. Wife not interested. Upgraded to 1200GSA from F800GS in Aug 2015.Dec 2015-officially no longer an "Off-Road Beginner" - that stuff is addictive.

I work to live not live to work. I am married to a wonderful woman, Alison, and have 2 beautiful boys, Dominic 6 and Nicolas 2. I have had an 18 year gap of no bike and no riding and now at 40 find myself reunited with that fantastic free spirit feeling you get when riding your bike. The best part is my wife enjoys the riding with me. That's it in a nut shell. Safe riding always.
I am 51 years old. Married. Three children. Owner at Cape Roof. Love nature and outdoors
I'm Andrew Delport and I've been living in Cape Town for the past 4 years after having lived in Dubai and Johannesburg most of my life. I'm a keen motorcyclist.

Hi, my name is Ian Steyn. I stay in Durbanville and commute on the bike to work (city) almost every day. Weekends the Adventure does what it does best - going off-road! I love getting off the tar and is always keen on exploring new gravel roads.

Started out on MX bikes in the bush with friends, 1st bike was a VFR 400 RR (honda), then a ZZR 400 R. For the last 5 years I have been riding an original '96 CBR 900 RR Urban Tiger Fireblade. Just upgraded to the Adventure. Very impressive bike, but I have to keep reminding myself that it is not a superbike, but a SUPER bike. Andrew Storie
Bones's picture
My name is Bones Hewitt and have been riding for some 40 years and as such still consider myself a novice who is willing to learn with each outing. I am self employed, married with three children. My passion is riding back country type roads/tracks with an overnight camp being the cherry on the top.
I'm Frank Dawson from Richards Bay, KwaZulu-Natal. I had a Kawazaki KDX200 a loooong time ago and recently purchased a 2008 R1200GSA.
