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.

R.I.P. Llewelyn Aylward

I write this with great sorrow, I have known this young man since he was a child. He was a wonderful young man, courteous and friendly with a ready smile and he was a biker to the core. Obviously he took his love of motorcycles from his Father Joe and was always seen at dayjols having fun and competing in the biker games, particularly the slow races at which he excelled.
He was a credit to his parents and in this day and age when all too often young people are lazy and indolent he lived life to the full, working with his hands and getting involved in the biker lifestyle working at the Vredenburg Yamaha agent.
I saw him on Friday when I dropped in to the bike shop, we shook hands and chatted, shared a joke. I learnt the next day that that evening he had been involved in an accident, apparently someone in a bakkie turned across in front of him and he had no chance.
It's difficult to understand why this should happen to someone so vibrant, so young and full of potential, he leaves behind a great many friends of all ages.
Sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers for strength go out to his parents Joe and Eleanor and to his girlfriend Stacy-lee.
May his dear soul rest in peace.
