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.

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.

After a break of some 25 years the bug bit again. My last BMW was a R50/5 way back in the late seventies. I thought I would "ease" back into biking againa and bought a KLR650 with the idea of trading up after about a year or two. Well I could not wait and took the plunge after six months and bought the R1200GS. The KLR650 is a great bike.

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

Nols Lubbe, riding a Dakar 650.

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


My name is Lizette, I live in Fishhoek. I started riding about 3.5 years ago on a Honda CTX200 Bushlander. Upgraded to a F700GS today. Unfortunately most kilos are added by commuting to town, although there is some time for weekend trips and in the not too far future hopefully longer trips. Need to build confidence on the new bike first. 

I'm looking forward to learning from this forum. 

Kind Regards

Hi, Kenya is home from where I run a safari business based out of Nairobi . Many decades ago, I rode an XT 500 . Great bike & ultra reliable . Time to get back into the saddle so am enjoying the GS 1200. The riding options within SA are exciting leading to adventures further a field!

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.
