Central Chapter: Report by Chairperson, Jaap Grobler, at AGM on 18 November 20187

It is my great pleasure to present a very healthy and active report of activities by Central Chapter for 2018. Membership 2017 Central Chapter members who re-joined in 2018: 67 members At the end of October 2018, the member count is at 85 paid-up members.

Central Chapter: 2018 Year-end function and AGM

Thank you to members of Central Chapter who participated in a most enjoyable weekend spent at Stonehenge in Africa from 16 to 18 November 2018. Some of our members chose the camping option, while others stayed in the lodge. This is where we enjoyed our burger braai on Friday night, where we laughed until we cried and sang songs led by Neels van Niekerk on the ukulele and Retha Roos on the guitar.   Dinner and dancing and again, much fun and laughter:   Congratulations to the 2019 Central Chapter Committee. Chapter members are looking forward to another exciting year...

The time has come to redo the exercise so that we can work out who put on the highest mileage in 2018. I have mistakenly told a few people that the rules stated that you have to be at the AGM...

2018 Wing Fling Awards and Trophies

Wing Riders of South Africa prides itself on riding the best touring bikes ever made. These bikes are not only amazing machines to own and ride, but are absolute show-stoppers when displayed in public. The annual Concours D’Elegance is a highlight on our annual calendar and is a time when our members get to really show off their bikes, not only amongst each other, but also to the general public. The 2018 Concours D’Elegance during the event of the 2018 Wing Fling, once again, was much more than a trophy and a pat on the back. The awards process is...

2018 Wing Fling

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht Sondag 14 Oktober Met twee wiele, drie wiele, op 'n sleepwa, en met die trein kom almal sonder te veel probleme in Caledon.  Ons is net 68 km ver. Mens mis eintlik die ver ry, oorslaap en baie pret op die lang pad, maar die teruggaan is darem lekker net so oor die berg!  Peet van Walvisbaai het by ons oorgeslaap, en toe ons vroeg klaar is, besluit die manne ons ry sonder om vir Kraai te wag. Hy sê hy sal ons opvang, wat toe nie gebeur het nie.  Ons is weg uit Gordonsbaai voor...
