Advertising policy


  1.  Advertisers of anything other than bikes, trikes and trailers, may post, free of charge, on our two public   Facebook groups three times per week and by way of one post only. The groups are:

Wing Riders SA and

Gold Wing Bikes, Trikes, Spares and Accessories (Wing Riders South Africa)

2.  Advertisements by external advertisers (non-members) on the webpage will appear on the Blog page in the side panel on the right. When a visitor to the page clicks on these block advertisements, it will take him/her to the full advertisement on the Marketplace page. The full advertisement can be linked to the advertiser’s website or Facebook page/group. The cost hereof will be R250, payable into the National Council bank account, and will remain in these two places on the webpage for four weeks.

3.  Wing Riders SA will not design advertisements for external advertisers on Facebook. These advertisements need to be submitted on Facebook directly by the advertiser and will only be posted after approval by the administrator.

4.  If an external advertiser has no advertisement readily available, Wing Riders SA will design advertisements for the website, on request, at the cost of R250. All advertisements need to be approved by both the advertiser and Wing Riders SA.

5.  Both external advertisers and members may advertise second-hand and personal items (excluding bikes, trikes and trailers) for free on Facebook. Business owners (in line with their business) pay as per the above for website advertisements. These need to be approved by the administrator.

6.  Members of Wing Riders SA advertising bikes, trikes and trailers on the website of Wing Riders SA, as well as external advertisers (non-members), will be invoiced an amount of R250 per advertisement. Proof of payment should be submitted to the Systems Administrator before the advertisement will be placed. The advertisement will remain on the website and Facebook until the bike, trike or trailer is sold. Once sold, the advertiser must inform the Systems Administrator as soon as possible so that the advertisement can be removed or displayed as “SOLD”.

Important: The Systems Administrator will, as a rule, request the contact details of the person to whom the bike/trike was sold as the Association are always looking to involve new owners of Gold Wings with the Association’s chapter activities.

7.  Members of Wing Riders SA advertising parts and accessories on the website of Wing Riders SA, as well as external advertisers (non-members), will be invoiced an amount of R50 for parts/accessories below R1 000; and R100 for parts/accessories on parts over R1 000.

8.  Wing Riders SA wishes to continue doing business in the spirit of integrity and honour as the Association is known for being ethical and professional at all times.
