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 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.

Hi. I am Gideon. Born and bred in Southwest Africa, now known as Namibia. Spend some years in KZN and for the last 21 years in Cape Town.  Love riding motorcycles, 4x4 and camp as often as possible. I am new to adventure biking.  Have fun, enjoy life while you can.

Rode bikes in school, left it for a while. Got back into bikes and really liked Adventure/Dual Sport riding. Had a bunch of different adventure bikes.Then started Enduro riding and really enjoyed it till I had a accident. That, coupled with witnessing some incidents of friends, gave me quite a nock in confidence - although I ride a motorcycle every day. I like gravel travel but I feel that I almost need to re learn all my skills from scratch now.  So this is me trying to learn as much as I can and try to ride a big heavy bike on and off road. I love every minute of it! :)

Hi, I'm Andreas and I've recently purchased a 2009 BMW F800GS motorbike Nickname: Spookie And I'm looking forward to join your club
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.

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 name is Timothy Reid. I am 41 years old and married with 2 kids.

I had a TZR 50 when I was at school. After I left school I had a KLR 650 for 2 years which I sold.

I haven't been on a bike for the last 20 years but always yearned to get one again. So last year I took the plunge and bought a pre owned 2018 BMW F800 GS Adventure which I am absolutely loving.

I want to do more off road based riding and have already enrolled for my first Country Trax training session in March and am planning on doing the next course in June in Touws River.

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

Hi My Name is Russell Wilmot. 

I have been riding seriously now for about 5 years. My first bike ever was an Honda MB 50 when I was in matric in 1988. For many years thereafter I did not ride until I finally convinced my wife to allow me to buy another and start riding again. My next bike was a Kawasaki V900 Vulcan Classic after which I came to my senses and bought my current BMW R 1200 RT from Donfords Stellenbosch and I have not looked back ever since.

I enjoy riding a motorcycle because...... its nice to ride a bike smiley.

Touring the back roads over a weekend or over longer stints is one of the most enjoyable things to do in life.

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!


I had a 1200GS for 5 years and then sold it due to available time to ride the bike, but the bug had bitten.  Visited GS Traders, saw a GSA and had to be back in the saddle.  My wife and I would love to be part of a group of like-minded people who share a passion for these bikes and the outdoors. 

Love my f800gs , easy to work on and yet so much reliability and fun to ride with
