Riders years of experience

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

After years of dreaming about riding a R 1200 GS Adventure I recently was blessed with one. It is everything that I dreamt about and more. I am the Southern Provinces Area Manager at the Unashamedly Ethical campaign, where I am privileged enough to live out my calling and passion. I have a teenage son and two beautiful daughters. My other passions are sport shooting and hunting, and I am an avid firearm enthusiast that holds dedicated hunter and dedicated sport shooter status.

Hi guys, I'm not only new on here, but also new to biking, so heaps of advice will be needed.




Starting on a new adventure by taking bike lessons, getting a license and riding as often as I can.

My interest are out doors, health, travel, current affairs and networking business.

Hopeto have some interesting chats and rides,


Newby from the Northern suburbs - with a lot to learn

My name is Garry Murdock I am self employed. Have a loving wife that bought me the bike for my 50 birthday present. ( don't know if she just wanting to cash in on in my life insurance earlier or not) I have two awesome children. Daughter Micheala and a Son Matthew.

I had a few bikes when I was younger, but got married with children and had no money for bikes no more.

Now I am back on two wheels and loving it!!!

Rode KTM 1190R for years.  Made the switch

Name is Alwyn, I live in Bellville, use to ride a motorcycle when I was in school, now ten years later I find myself dreaming about the thrill of riding again...

I am retired and want to explore SA.  And surrounds.  Like to have fun. 

Morning all,

I'm a retreaded biker feeling my way. Last rode in the '70s (gad) and I'm now taking time to get used to the bike, more traffic and all the torque! Once that's sorted, I'm looking to do some gravel and make new mates.

Hi my name is George Stanley and I am a novice bike rider as it's been a long time since I have been on a bike. Reason for wanting to ride again is to meet up with new people and make new friends. And to get out on the weekends to have a good time.
