Great, I'm looking forward to that weekend. If anyone has a open space on a trailor for my bike, please let me know. I will pay for the transfer. It's just a bit too far for me to ride (I think) but still want to have my bike there.

ABW is not quite Sturgis. Our old rally is back up and running,and more along the lines of a Sturgis event. Hennie on the forum is actually the main organizer. Last year was the first one after a break,but the town of Graaf Reinet has given the go ahead for the next three years.

Last year some of our club guys did a train trip up to Pretoria,then rode to Durbs from there after taking bikes off train. After they did an epic trip back down to Cape Town.
I am hoping to do this next year.

Africa Bike Week - hell yes, what a jorl, like Bronzy been to four and had a blast every time........

Sadly it won't be all party for us as I have a stand there, as usual the terrible twinz da Bling King and Zebra will be sharing a stand and plying their wares. So we invit all the Dawgs to come and spend their mullah on trinkets with us after you've likkered yourself at the JD tent.
Sadly the precious candy with the 98cm inseam and the 36D's (true story) has just called to say she won't be helping us ply our wares as her stupid bastid Bossette won't give her leave - gggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr  ::)

But my darling Dilana is coming out from the USA to perform there and she is alone worth a visit to the show!

If you are sitting on the fence trying to decide - JUST DO EEEEETTTTTT!!!!! I can guarantee you will have a jorl!  :thumleft:

GP Harleys BB,all my mates have ridden up from Cape Town. The blow time my bike has been on a trailer is when I had a bad cut in my rear tyre. I do not see the point of not riding.
And if the missus is not keen to ride all that way, she can fly,cost the same as pulling a bike with a gas guzzler.

I got to Margate around 09:00 and the streets were still kind of empty, most of the bikes having left for the Mass Ride from Shelly Beach.

The whole beach front road was only open to bikes and obviously it being a Harley thing most of everything was Harley. It was impressive!

Look at the clutch on this bike - amazing that they even moved. You push that long arm forward to tension the leather drive belt

Unfortunately one could not get clean shots of the bikes.

Sorry no photos of the mass ride. I was on my way out already, but it was impressive hundreds, no thousands of bikes.

It was certainly worth the visit. Hope the Dogs who were in Margate enjoyed the jol!

Anyway thought I just let you guys know that a good friend of mine was attacked  by a few guys on Harleys in Clarens on Thursday night.

After a 5 hour op they could not save his eye !!!

Broken jaw bone and nose as well !!!

A case has been made and I will start a chat and expose these huligans shortly.

Never heard of a off road event going this way ever ... best I stay on my dirt bikes  :ricky:

Confirmed, just before the Uvongo bridge. I passed the scene on the way back everything was under control with lots of emergency service, and since I was on two wheels I did not even rubber neck.

Indefensible no matter what transpired. It does appear that he came to the defence of a girl who was being verbally abused by these tough weekend warriors.

These Harley okes must be a bunch of nambie-pambies.... 4 against 1???  They always have to ride in groups in case they get lost in a wayward town & get their asses and chrome stripped off! :pot: :patch:

4 against 1 are good odds for me, then I only have to put in half an effort to defend myself. On a serious note, I hope this incident does not harm the biking community as a whole.

Just got back home from a great time in Margate - definately worth the effort and had the opportunity to personally meet Mr Davidson Jr - what a great guy.  Despite the fact that I'm not a huge Harley fan (although my opinion changed somewhat over the last few days) I really enjoyed the 'gees' that goes on in these circles - maybe that's because there were so many adventure bikes in Margate  ;D ;D ;D  ....check these out....
