Introduce yourself

My name is Jonathan, was born here and have lived in Cape Town my entire life. I got my first bike, a Suzuki AC50 at 16, followed by a Suzuki GT250C and thereafter a GSX750. After a long break from riding I purchased my current bike purely for leisure, but if have to attend more early-morning meetings in town, I may well commute on the bike. I would like to tour a little, I have been following the Missenden Flyer on YouTube, and would not mind giving a local version of the Australian GS Safari a go - a little milder though. Not much one for camping, preferring a comfortable bed, having had all the camping I can take in the army.

Work-wise, I am into Geographic Information Systems which keeps me pretty busy and thus like spending some time on the bike on weekends to clear the mind a little.

I did find getting back into riding a bike reasonably easy, but these days prefer puttering along and enjoying the scenery. Mountain passes are a favourite, especially curvy sections. Have not done trips longer than 5 hours thus far. Looking forward to weekend outings in a group.
