Welcome to my blog, these are the ramblings and musings of an (upper) middle aged biker and if you enjoy braais, (barbeques) beers and motorbikes then hopefully you will enjoy what Janet and I do; we do lots of braais, we drink lots of beer and we tour South Africa on our motorbike, which at the moment is a BMW R1200RT. Join us, read about what we do and please leave us your comments.

Capetown Bike Show

I recently received a request from the organisers to promote the upcoming CAPETOWN BIKE SHOW which will be taking place on Sunday 4th March between 10h00 and 16h00 and I really feel that this is something that we bikers need to support.
Apart from the fact that the event, which was launched successfully in December 2010, has been planned as an annual fundraiser for "Living Way", I feel that we have to support any event of this kind that takes place in Capetown.
We have very little in the way of motorcycle related events to attend here in the Cape, the second annual "Ink and Iron Show" was at Timor Hall earlier, which I thoroughly enjoyed and I hope that it will grow from strength to strength. We unfortunately lost out on the "Capetown Bike Festival" in early December for various reasons, otherwise all of the big events go to Johannesburg or Pretoria - we need to support whatever may be planned for the Cape!
The CAPETOWN BIKE SHOW will start at 10h00 on Sunday 4th March at the "Living Hope Campus" on Kommetjie Road, Kommetjie, there will be onsite parking for motorcycles (cagers will have to find their own spots!) and entrance will be R35 per person which will include a metal badge.
There will be outdoor motorcycle exhibits and displays from manufacturers and suppliers, the usual biker related stalls as well as food and refreshments and all funds raised will be going to "Living Way" which works to provide opportunities for people to earn their way out of poverty, this sounds like a very worthwhile beneficiary to me.

Check out the websites; www.capetownbikeshow.co.za and www.livingway.co.za for more details.

Hopefully I will be riding down with a contingent from the Meeulanders Motorcycle Club and I hope to see you there, this event is not only for bikers but would also be good for those of you who are unenlightened to the joys of two wheels. Come along and meet, mingle with and hug some bikers.

I don't think Janet will be going, when I suggested the ride to her she asked "How long are you going to be there?" All she wants to do is walk quickly around, have a look at the stalls and exhibits and then leave, she is not into the whole chill, meet and greet scene. She will probably stay home and chill.
