Western Cape Chapter: Run to Saldanha Bay, 21 and 22 March 2020

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht Ons was in Oktober 2019 laas op ons Wing. Moes wag vir 'n nuwe waterpomp en het ook gesukkel met 'n hoeklig wat aanhou doodgaan het, so ons het baie uitgesien na die naweek by die Marriott Hotel in Saldanha.  Ons het besluit om nie saam met die groep vir ontbyt na Bellville te gaan nie, maar hulle op pad na Langebaan te kry. Was lui om vroeër op te staan!  By die Weskus Petrostasie kry ons vir Pieter en Marietjie, ook hulle seun Wynand; hy het heen en weer gery om video's van die groep...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Kleinmond on 19 January 2020

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht The gale-force southeaster has been torturing us for a week, so chances of going on the run with our Wing was becoming slimmer every day!  Rain was also predicted, so André decided the car was the best option.  We turned up at the meeting place, but after waiting for the rest for more than half an hour, we realised that something was wrong.  The group apparently forgot that we were also going and left a bit earlier!  After contacting Igsaan, we heard that they were already at Betty's Bay and we decided to meet them at...

Western Cape Chapter: Year-end function, Kunguru Lodge, Elgin, 16 and 17 November 2019

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht Feroza het oral gesoek en toe dié lekker plekkie gevind. Ons hou al die hele week die weer dop; dit lyk of dit die naweek gaan reën in Elgin - moeilik om te glo aangesien dit aan hierdie kant van die berg al so warm is!  Ons besluit om maar met die motor te gaan, daar is ook 'n stukkie grondpad waarvoor ek maar versigtig is!  Goeie besluit, want Saterdagoggend word ons wakker met 'n tierende suidoos wat waai, nie 'n manier wat ek op die Wing klim nie. We still had to do our weekly...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Piekenierskloof on 21 July 2019

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht Na reën en wind is Sondag stil maar yskoud.  By Somerset-Wes voel dit of ons yspakke op ons knieë het!  Ons kry vir Johan Hattingh langs die pad. Ek sê nogal vir André sy hande kry nie koud nie; sy Wing se handvatsels word mos warm. Ons s'n is al dood van die koue. Nee, sê hy, toe ons afklim by Swartland petrolstasie – hy het al wat ‘n knop is gedruk en getrek, maar kon niks regkry nie! Nadat hy die handleiding bestudeer het, het hy die regte knop gekry!  "When all else fails ...!" Naby...

Western Cape Newsletter: July 2019

NEWSLETTER JULY 2019 It looks and feels as if we are going to have a long winter. Mid-June, we had the first heavy rainfall and I believe it did affect the Western Cape badly. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Delphius for being instrumental in getting all the new members on board with Wing Riders SA. We hope to see these members at our Chapter runs on 21 July 2019 and at Chapter AGM on 17 August 2019. We wish all the Wing Riders a speedy recovery and may your health go from strength to strength. They...

WC Chapter: Run to George, 21 to 24 March 2019

Our weekend started off with an arrangement to meet at Buffelsjag for breakfast at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, 21st March. André and Amorita had left early the morning and was there well before the meeting time and we agreed for him to carry on. Donny and Suzette were so eager to get to George, they missed the breakfast. Delphius decided to leave that same morning from Calvinia, and that was 800 km from George, so he was not going to make breakfast. Great ride to George, with roadworks along the way. On arrival at Loerie Guest Lodge, we met up...

Western Cape Chapter: Run to Saldanha Bay on 17 February 2019

Written by / geskryf deur Amorita Engelbrecht Wat sal ons nie alles doen vir die Wing Riders nie! Ons staan om 5 v.m. in Gordonsbaai op. André wil seker maak ons is betyds by ons bymekaarkomplek in Melkbosstrand. Dit is lekker koel en windstil. Dit is verbasend hoeveel verkeer daar om 6 v.m. op 'n Sondag op die pad is. Ons is sowaar eerste, 'n halfuur te vroeg, die hoenders het sopas opgestaan! Ons het net afgeklim toe kom Kraai aangevlieg, ons drink koffie en kry die eerste geselsies agter die rug. Die res kom so stuk-stuk aan. Feroza bederf...

Western Cape Chapter: Progressive run, Worcester – Malmesbury, 20 January 2019

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht André was nie lus vir 'n warm vrou op die Wing in warm Worcester nie, so ons is direk na Malmesbury, en weet dus nie wat die res in Worcester gedoen het nie.  Dit was 'n heerlike rit van Gordonsbaai tot in Malmesbury, lekker koel en windstil.  In Malmesbury was Deon en Lizbe al slaggereed vir die Gold Wing-inval.  Ons het lekker gesels terwyl ons vir die res gewag het. Igsaan en Feroza daag later op met 'n versameling heerlike samoosas. Ons het sommer dadelik begin proe. Na 'n veilige maar warm rit, kom die res...
