Riders years of experience

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.


My name is Dave King and I am a retired airline Captain living in Hartenbos which is very close to Mossel Bay. My wife passed away last year and I have just purchased a R1200GS but have not ridden for quite some time and would like to get involved with the club.

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



I am Hannarie and I am a pillion, and Gerald is riding the bike.

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.


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,

My name is Jaco and I am from near Upington. I sell farms and want to use my GS to venture into the Kalahari instead of my 4x4 bakkie. My wife Liza and I have just returned from the west coast on our first ride. It was awesome. We would love to ride the back roads of the Kalahari and Karoo.

I am Garth interested in buying a bike.I am not a seasoned biker.

Hi All

I am happy to say that I have just purchased my first GS.  I also do not have that much experience in riding yet, hopefully that is going to change now. 

I look forward in meeting some of you and would really appreciate some advice from all you experienced riders.

If there are any of you based in Paarl or Wellington that would like some company from time to time, please contact me.
