Riders years of experience

Recently relocated back to CT after a stint of 6 plus years in Gauteng. Enjoy touring and more recently keen to explore off road. Started biking many years ago on a Honda 500XL thumper but stopped while children were young. Enjoy the odd excursion to re-explore the Cape.

Riding a bit of fun enduro with my teenage sons rekindled my interest in bikes. Decided to get a bigger bike so settled on a 2011 R1200GSA. Very much a beginner in the dualsport scene.

Recently moved to a 1200GS after a few years learning on a Dakar. Never thought I'd be able to handle the extra weight, but so far so good! My favourite riding is on a good dirt road far away from anywhere.

I love the outdoors. Bought my dream bike and now i'm exploring our beautiful country one trip at a time.

I've had my BMW for for years now and have been commuting since then. I now want to start getting more involved with other riders to help me become a better rider in my own right 


My name is Hanco Botha. I've been riding bikes since I was 9. I officially started in 2014 on a BMW F800 GS and early 2018 upgraded to a R1200 GSA.

Currently reside in Pta

My naam is Ruan. Ek is oorspronklik van Namibie, maar bly nou al van 2010 af in die Wes Kaap. Ek bly tans in Somerset Wes saam met my meisie en ons 2 pavement specials. Terwyl ek in Namibie gebly het was motorfietse my primere vervoer vir ongeveer 4 jaar. Die laaste fiets wat ek besit het was 'n Suzuki GSXR 1000 K7. Met die trek na SA moes ek ongelukkig die fiets verkoop, maar die gogga se tande sit nog diep in my vlees. Ek dreig nog elke paar maande om terug te klim op 'n motorfiets maar om verskeie redes kon ek dit tot dusver nog nie laat realiseer nie. Ek is wel huidiglik besig om my ducks in a row te kry om vroeg in 2015 'n F800GS aan te skaf. Ek het die superbike gier nou ontgroei en sal dit geniet om die natuurskoon van die Wes Kaap op 'n motorfiets te verken.

Enjoying the wind in my hair again after a really long lay-off ... back on the road again for 18 months now and approaching the 500 hour mark. Commute daily and love being on the bike. Persuaded my son to buy a Dakar so am really enjoying doing some awesome off-road trips with him and his mates as well

Riding my GSA is soul awakening and i am addicted to it.

My wife and I only moved to the Western Cape 6 weeks  ago. We originate from England but lived in Austria for the last 8 years. I started riding about 35 years ago and after a very long break, started again about 4 years ago to enjoy the fantastic mountain roads in Austria. 

I had never ridden a BMW before arriving here but I am very impressed with the 1200GS and look forward to exploring the Western Cape ( and perhaps beyond) and meeting new friends.

I am currently still awaiting my Traffic Register Number ( a very slow process it seems) but hope to be ‘on the road’ soon.

Grew up on bikes on a farm in the Karoo, and then started riding again many years later. Now commute daily to work on my bike and love every minute of it, but have not friends that are bikers. would love to meet likeminded people to ride with.

Not new to riding anymore, had my first accident in October 2016, just updating my profile
