Western Cape Chapter run: Lambertsbaai on 20 to 22 July 2018

Geskryf deur Amorita Engelbrecht Ons Wing is nog steeds in die proses om gediens te word – ek dink André sien nie kans vir die koue garage saans nie. Nogal jammer, want Vrydag is toe 'n lieflike dag vir 'n rit!  Die velde is oral mooi groen na die droë somer. By Kardoesie, bo by Piekenierskloofpas, is daar al 'n plaat oranje Namakwalandse madeliefies.  Ook langs die pad by Clanwilliam steek die blomme hulle koppies uit, en hoe wonderlik om die dam so vol te sien, met glads 'n sluis oop, nadat hy omtrent leeg was toe ons Kakamas toe...

Western Cape Chapter run: Helpende Handjies in Montagu on 24 June 2018

Geskryf deur Amorita Engelbrecht André is besig om ons Wing te diens, dus is ons met vier wiele op pad. Dit is bewolk en koud en van Stellenbosch tot voor die tonnel reën dit liggies.  By Worcester kry ons vir Krish, John Dreyer, die Nobles en Ceraj en Nazli, asook 'n paar van die plaaslike motorfietsklub.  Dit lyk my die skoolvakansie en winterweer het ons maar redelik uitgedun! Daar is besluit om KFC by Robertson te koop vir die kinders, so ons en Richard-hulle ry solank. Die pad is besig met haastige mense; die padwerke by Ashton en in die...

Central Chapter run: Stonehenge Lodge, Parys dictrict, 24 June 2018

Members and guests came from Witbank, Pretoria, the West, East and South Rand and met at the final departure point at the Blockhouse on the R59. It was not too cold and everyone enjoyed a lovely winter run. The Gold Wings arrived at Stonehenge Lodge around 11:30. Stonehenge is a riverside lodge, conference and teambuilding venue, about 10 km on the other side of Parys. As guests entered Stonehenge, they were greeted by a large replication of the celebrated Stonehenge Monument. Throughout the complex, natural, strategically-placed granite plinths reinforce the African Ambience. We had the privilege of two guests joining...

Central Chapter: Newsletter June 2018

  Hello everybody Almost midyear already and another month of activities gone by. Today, thirteen Gold Wings paraded at the East Rand Motor Show. There was much interest from the public, many questions asked, and a number of people enquired about bikes and trikes for sale. During our run in May, Henry proved that a trike can keep up with the 2-wheelers in the twisties at the Red Star Raceway. Thanks to the management of Red Star who made it an extraordinary day. On the people front, please keep Pax in your thoughts and prayers who is still in hospital...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Kleinmond on 19 May 2018

Verslag geskryf deur Amorita Engelbrecht Ons wag al lank vir 'n lekker bui reën, en dit lyk of dit die naweek kan gebeur!  Ons hou heel Saterdag- en Sondagoggend vroeg vir Krish op datum oor hoe dit hier in Gordonsbaai lyk – dit is waar ons bymekaar sal kom.  Dit is toe koel en bewolk, maar dit lyk nie of daar enige druppels gaan val nie.  By die petrolstasie is dit ons, Krish-hulle, die Taljaards en die verrassing toe Greg Franciscus saam met die Naidoos arriveer, nogal op 'n 1500 Wing!  Op pad sluit Johan Hattingh en Heinrich Baadjies by...
