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...

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...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Caledon on 15 April 2018

On Sunday, 15 April 2018, Western Cape Chapter of Wing Riders SA had a run, to Caledon as the turn-around destination. Members met at the BP garage in Strand at 09:00. Three of us had conversations with other bikers who we met at the garage, we looked at each other’s bikes and discussed motorcycling in general. After having waited until 09:15, we decided to leave and head towards Gordon’s Bay. We enjoyed the scenic view of the mountain and sea. We said goodbye to our newly met friends and three Gold Wings and a car left the garage en route...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Riebeek-Kasteel on 21 January 2018

For our first run of 2018, we all met at the N1 Engen Winelands 1-stop North and departed at 08:30. Vrydag en Saterdag waai die suidoos stormsterk in Gordonsbaai, die kraaie gaap in Worcester, so ek was bly toe André sê ons kan met die motor gaan op ons uitrit! Sondagoggend is dit natuurlik windstil, maar ons hou maar by ons besluit.           A few members took the Klapmuts road to Stellenbosch where we waited for the other at Helshoogte. Buite die Paarl, kom sewe Wings en ons en Boet met voertuie bymekaar. 'n Lekker groupie...
