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.

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...

2017 Wing Fling Awards and Trophies

Awards and trophies are not just about a pat on the back or a quick ego boost. They are about recognising and rewarding the efforts of individual Wing Riders who simply did the best in certain categories. In all the categories, it was extremely hard, not only to choose the three most outstanding contestants, but to reach a conclusion as to the final winners, took long hours of deliberation and consideration. We should always keep in mind why we own the best bike in the world ... to ride. We should always remember that we belong to this amazing club ......

2017 Wing Fling

Written by Amorita Engelbrecht (Western Cape Chapter) Ons slaap Woensdagaand oor op Worcester, anders moes ons Donderdagoggend om 4:30 uit Gordonsbaai vertrek het. Krish en Gail het so 'n goeie naam by die Casino dat hy vir ons 'n baie goeie afslag gekry het vir die nag. Ons eet aandete by die Casino en gaan slaap vroeg. Donderdagoggend sluit Kraai Krige by ons aan, hy het sowaar natgereën op pad, terwyl Ceraj en Igsaan-hulle ook later bykom. Dit is baie koud tot op Laingsburg, maar windstil, wat vir my altyd 'n bonus is! Ek neem nog aan dat ons ontbyt...
