I seem to collect things with two wheels. I've cycled since I can remember and really enjoy mountain biking. I bought an electric bicycle in 2012. I bought my first and current motorbike in Oct 2013, as I was tired of sitting pillion or sitting in traffic. My name is Zanie Cilliers.

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'm a noob who has started riding a scooter to beat the traffic. However the bug has bitten and I want to buy and start riding a GS.

Looking for some training, and hoping its on offer somewhere in the club.

Hi, Tian here. Got my first BMW (an R75/5) at the tender age of 19 in 1986 ... always loved 'em! Had another Beemer (R100) but no bikes in my life for about 15 years - started again at the beginning of 2009 with my shiny new 800gs, and this is my first foray off-road, hence the 1-2 years experience level. Update (April 2011): after an incident with a cage my 800gs got written off. HP2 is my new bike.
Recently bought a GS and looking to explore the country side...

I moved back to SA 3 years ago and have decided to do adventure rides on my GS (800). As a trail runner it would be nice to meet other adventurers that appreciate running in the wild, while out on an riding adventure.

I am married and have two kids. My daughter (the eldest) is doing her articles after completing her degree and entry board exam. My son is doing an internship at Hill Song Church.

I work for the City of Cape Town

I have been riding bikes from school till the kids came along. Then I started riding quad bikes as a family adventure for a few years.

After selling my quads, i bought my adventure bike just over 2 years ago and enjoying it big time



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.

Onderwyseres Hermanus. Love my gs

I'm new to the adventure biking scene. I've been riding a road bike for a number of years, but always dreamt of doing an epic trip on an adventure bike. I've now bought an entry level GS650 to live out this dream. But I first need some training and hours on the gravel road. This looks like an amazing community where I can get some much needed advice and enjoy this sport with like minded adventurers.

Hi Everyone,

Too much tar, not enough gravel. Looking for mates to hit the trails with, and hopefully learn a few things from the club.

Looking forward to meeting you all.
