Title: JUL MENING OOR BIKE RALLIES !! Please vote.
Post by: ThysBasson on April 12, 2011, 11:30:20 pm
Wat is jul mening oor rallies ?

Ek bly weg. Ek was presies 2 minute by die rally op Rustenburg- ek dink dit was die Poison Rally - toe maak ek spore.

Later die middag toe vertel 2 ouens van Klerksdorp my, dat daar 4 mense dood is. 2 Bikers en 2 toeskouers, 'n ma en haar klein seuntjie, deur 'n ou wat in hulle vas gewheelie het.

Ek word altyd saam genooi deur die locals hier by ons, maar ek het maar altyd 'n verskoning.

Ek gaan eerder na ons bashes en ride-outs toe, die klomp suip maar woes, maar gedra hulle darm soos mense.

Gaan julle op die rallies ?

Vir baie lank ook altyd 'n verskoning gehad
Twee jaar gelede toe Buff toe, maar op Hartenbos akkomodasie gekry
So ons was nou een keer by 'n rally
Vir my is dit 'n kwessie van "been there, done that, got the t-shirt"
Not my cup of tea, dankie
Gee my eerder 'n paar pelle en 'n stofpad, dan het jy my aandag

There is not much difference between the WD bashes and rallies. Dint shoot the one but praise the other. Shoot both or praise both. The day the bashes hit big numbers like with rallies we talk again.

Been to 50+ rallies and I like it, when I am in the mood for it. I just won't go to any Bark SA rallies. Each rally got its own "character" Like the quietness of the Stilbay rally, the strippers of the Cobra rally, the baked beans feeling at the Titty twisters, the beespoespie rally etc etc etc. I prefer the smaller ones.

Yes I agree, sometimes okes "haak uit" en jaag lekker k@k aan. But its your choice to attend and partake or not. My favorite pastime at rallies is to, drink and praat k@k with mates, oogle the bikes and girls, and sit somewhere out of harms way and check the shenanigans out.

Rallies are NOT for children and I dislike to see kids attending with their parents. Its not for everybody, its for grownups that want to go wild for a weekend and throw their names away.

Peace out

Only ONE rally I go to and that is the BABOON RALLY in Queenstown there gravel outride on the Saturday is awesome.  :thumleft:    there are more Dual Sport bikes at this rally than roadbikes.
The organizers do a fantastic job  :thumleft:
Been to this rally 5 years in a row.

There's a distinct difference between your usual roadie rally & a WD Rallye....

I can only speak for the WC Bash....anyone that has been to the events knows that the whole idea is to ride your bike on a suggested route on the Saturday. If it get bigger than 100+ bikes i still don't see a problem. Over a few years a culture has already been established of discipline and respect for fellow riders & campers. Besides....most of the guys are to tired for hell raising after a day in the saddle! :laughing4:
I like a burnout in a bar & on the dirt to.... ;D

A WD bash is nothing like a roadie rally....because we all know each other on one level or another. There's no strangers. :thumleft:

I love machinery and I will walk around a rally site to check out especially the well done customizations and special bikes but it really hurts when an a-hole revs his bike to the limiter or burns rubber on the tarmac. luckily most Jap bikes seem to be able to take this abuse unaffected but still it hurts. Have not been to a rally for 4 years now.

Once rode an MX race at Tarlton when one of the bike rallys was being held at the drag strip across the way, way back in the 80's.  

Some of the participants of the rally came across in a group to watch the racing.

They were all drunk as hell and seemed intent on causing as much trouble as possible, especially with the guys girl friends.  Unfortunately the MX guys are all fit and tend to be wearing boots and pads etc.

I saw two guys being taken away in ambulances.  

Just not my scene at all!

I agree with Kurt on this.  We were all in bed at 20H00 to get a good nights sleep... the camp was quiet all night and everyone (except Stoetie - he flew up and had no bike ) went for an early morning ride.

Been to a few rallies but usually enjoyed the smaller rallies more Baboon rally being one of note. I attended the Buff a few years ago but doubt I'll do it again, 3 hours sleep in 2 days is not good. Was a good joll though anyway..

This is actually a very good discussion thread.

I used to go to a few rallies, mainly Eastern Cape, down to George, Oudtshoorn and inland.

Did not particularly enjoy them, and walk away when the kark starts to hit the fan.

I guess just like DS bikes have certain rider types, and others will go for Harleys, rallies have an attraction for some.

Mostly, I will give them a miss.

Been going to rallies for 30 years + Enjoy meeting old friends, staying out of harms way, dopping Rum, talking sh*t, and sleeping off site where it is quiet. Been going to the smaller one's lately, but never try to miss a Buff. The Baboon is as far as I am concerned # 1

+1000

On a Bash it is a social, organized get together - with none of that "I am tougher than you attitude"  :patch:
I get a lot of stop overs from bikers going to rallies - (keep in mind I also bike so should be more open to any bikers)  BUT - I FULLY understand why bikers get a poor name looking and listening to the way the rally crowd talks to you.  :-\

Huge difference IMHO.

Mmm...a couple of us went to the Springbok Rally last year near Oudshoorn & i must say i enjoyed it. It was not a huge thing but had all the services required :thumleft:
Nice to have an organised base from which to ride....i did De Hell from there for the first time. :)

Would i go to another Rally...yes of course...but there has to be a decent Outride in a nice geographical area.

 :imaposer: It's also nice just to sit & watch the world go by! :laughing4: Vrek but there's some characters out there...

I have been to plenty of rallies but fortunately it was to work or to deliver something. I have been to one near Hartebeespoort once as spectator but it was to take the wife and show her why we don't go to rallies. She was forever nagging me to go as she would see the ad's in the Bark SA, so I took her  >:D we stayed for about 15min before she said can we please leave as she is feeling dirty. Drunk people revving claped out bikes @ 9am, and that was the end of rallying for us.
Nee wat pappa sal nie kry nie!!

Was al so mmm ek dink 4 rallies gewees. 

Die ryery soontoe is natuurlik die lekkerste.  Maar wat jy daar wil doen en waar jy wil tent opslaan is jou keuse. 

Gewoonlik  sou ek sommer net op my eie gaan explore wat in die omgewing aangaan, buite die rallie site nou, die bikestunts en goeters gekyk en so aan.  Moet se, as jy jouself tuismaak by 'n vuurtjie en net die ouens om jou uitcheck kan jy nogals baie komiese goeters sien! 

Ja die geraas raak erg! 

Ek dink dit gaan maar oor met wie jy saamgaan en social wat die naweek gaan maak of breek. 

Meeste van ons weet waarvoor jy jouself inlaat as jy gaan.  Anders, hang saam met die CMA mense rond, nice klomp.
Die laaste rallie waarop ek was, het ek met die tdub gegaan,  ek het my eie speelplek ontdek, (daar was 'n lee dam, nou ja jy kan imagine ek was heeldag myself gate uit geniet het)   en heel happy die hele dag op my eie gespeel. 

En dit was weird maar die rally was stil die saterdagaand!  Of ek was net te poegaai!

Maar ek sal weer gaan nie, het nou iets beters ontdek!

Been to a couple of WD bashes and been to the Route62 Harley-Davidson Rally and enjoyed all of them. At all of these it was a hell of a party :occasion14: but the people basically behaved themselves.

Never been to a roadie Rally officially and not interested quite frankly. Had a look see at the Buff twice (just riding around town) and by chance another at Worcester once (cant remember the name) but it's not my scene at all. Partying hard is one thing, but falling down drunk people, vomit on the pavement etc. is DEFINITELY not my scene. I have much better things to do with a weekend.

I guess the types differ at these types of gatherings, but with the accelerated growth of the DS sector it's probably only a matter of time before we get all types and some bashes turn into rally type gatherings anyway, so it's not about choosing between a bash or rally, it's about choosing between events.

Been to 2 or 3 barksa rally's, can't really say why.. First was an "experience" (like when you try something new). You do see things you will never see or experience otherwise! Will NEVER ref my bike like that!

Normally also see the sights in the area during the day, and walk around at night laughing at people  >:D

"*Unique*" things I have seen at barksa rally's:

Drunk bodybuilder doing a stage dive and the crowd parting like the red sea. He hit the ground solid & horizontal, and I wet myself laughing.
Group of friends booking their one piss-horing-poep-dronk friend in for a tattoo at one of those tattoo caravans at 02H00, a nice large swastika carrying eagle thing which ended up having squonk wings... I stood outside with the "friends" laughing as hard as they were!  :eek7:
Still wondering why any-one would pay 50 Ront for a cheap shooter and a tit in your ear...  :patch:
Seeing a harley being revved for about 5 minutes, the pipes were blood-cherry RED!! Okes were lighting their sigarettes off of the pipe! Then seeing it being loaded onto a bakkie the next morning ::) 

No immediate plans to attend another just yet......

Been to plenty and love them - if you part of the club scene - you know a lot of people there and they are like family - much like the WD's are - rowdy crazy family.

At most the roadies look worse than they are and have never had any problems at a rally and wont find a friendlier bunch of people generally.

All about going crazy and letting your hair down.

But them again I am as kommin as they come so yep - I don't care much about image to other people hahahahahaahahhaa

I am an unrehabilitated(if there is such a nice word ;D) perfectionist and don't like to see things being farked up or destroyed and I guess that is where the hatred for it all starts. :'( :'(

Like Irish, I also love machines and the olden day rallies, while very rough, would offer you the chance to see some really individual examples of customized bikes, Sanders and Lewis GT750's, Rickman Kawas and Hondas, etc. Nowadays all superbikes look alike and they are so well built anything you change on them is a step backward. Look at D/S bikes, 990's all look alike AFTER being individually farkled, same for GS, etc.. No more major surgery, unless you have major money. And today's kids do not know what troublemaking means :pot:

Well rallies are not really my thing,as I do not see myself as the typical road Baaiker.But went to the buff this year and had a jol.I suppose it all depends on how you rally.
We went up in a group of six bikes,took us almost 10 hours from Cape Town to Mossel bay.We stopped plenty,I got to ride Garcia pass for the first time,spent two hours at the top of the pass having a braai.
Did not camp in the main site,we rented an apartment just outside ,it was cool and we got to have decent sleep.You could still hear most of the happenings,but muted enough to be enjoyable.
Did not see one fight,just a bunch of guys getting karked on by their well juiced other halves.And plenty chick on chick bickering,chicks can be sooo common when intoxicated.
But as the saying goes it is more about the ride than the destination.We just went up cause it was an excuse for a couple of ou's to go away for a cool boys weekend.
My missus went to one rally with me and swore never again.I think I have been to three in the last four years.

This is a debate that will get to a 100 pages but I also don't see to many reasons for doing a burn out on a super bike at max rev's and losing a 2000 grand tyre for making some smoke, fuck rather ask someone for a cigarette.But like I said diffrent strokes for different folks!!!!Only reason is because I work hard for my toys and look after them.

Some people will play golf for relaxation and be happy with that. Some bikers will be happy sitting around a Wilddog bash campfire, chatting with a drink in hand, others want to be at a place where they can wheelie around, do burn-outs and neutral revving. Sherbet, how we differ!
There's a move afoot to get neutral-revving entered as an olympic event, so do not scoff.

Like I said each rally got a different character, not every one is always lekker. The Bark SA rallies are to big. I prefer the smaller to mild ones. My first Buff in the eighties was rough compared to the latest ones.

In the years I went to 50 plus rallies I only saw one big bar brawl/fight. And who started it? A drunken young farmer from Villiersdorp. He come to the rally for a look a see and end out cold on the deck after clapping an oke named "Teacher" ((some of you will know whim)) Teacher was riding his Kawa Z1300 to the bar, as he always does at rallies and boerseuntjie did not like it. ::)

Most okes at rallies just look and act the part with all the leather and tattoos. Pretty few of them are really tough. No need to be scared of em. :biggrin:

I have to tell this

Who of you knwo the CMA chapters? Christian motorcycle Ass.

Anyway they are famous for having free coffee tents at rallies. You can give a donation if you like.

Reason why I love them. Not for the gospel music or brotherly love they give the fallen (drunk) okes but do you know how lekker a cup of freshly brewed coffee taste at 3 in the morning when you had been drinking the last 14 hours? The coffee help you to find your tent.

Big thanks to the CMA for all that free coffees and patience when I spilled them. :thumleft:

First Rally I went to was Rhino Rally.  That year they hit record numbers.

Some early morning antics by a Harley Rider, saw him loose his clutch at full throttle and rode over four people sleeping in a tent closeby.  All four people later died as a result of a drunk idiot.

It was a moerse eye opener for me, only having my first ever bike for only three weeks, and I was pissed scared of speeding with the 1200gs.  Let alone riding drunk.  I figured:  How do I control a situation where other people are drunk (17 000) of them to be exact.  Answer:  You can't.

Since then, I only joined the Rhino Rally again three years later with a bunch of Wilddogs.  We only slept and ate there.  Never saw nothing about the rally.  Saw the roads less travelled around the Free state though.   :ricky:


And BTW.  I made sure the other dogs parked their bikes in a circle around my tent.  And pitched it next to a tree facing away from the hustle and bustle.


.... and miss Rhino only had one tit.   :o

I have to tell this

Who of you knwo the CMA chapters? Christian motorcycle Ass.

Anyway they are famous for having free coffee tents at rallies. You can give a donation if you like.

Reason why I love them. Not for the gospel music or brotherly love they give the fallen (drunk) okes but do you know how lekker a cup of freshly brewed coffee taste at 3 in the morning when you had been drinking the last 14 hours? The coffee help you to find your tent.

Big thanks to the CMA for all that free coffees and patience when I spilled them. :thumleft:

Mmmmf, we had the CMA guys at the FS Bash, I never so much as smelt coffee from their campsite.... :peepwall: :pot: :biggrin:

Julle wat se dis lekker om rally toe te gaan Wat kos dit om 'n Rally by te woon? Hoeveel geld gee julle daar uit aan drank en kos en petrol geld om daar te kom? Is dit nie lekkerder om net 'n nice grondpad te gaan ry nie om die vuur te sit sonder om in dronk mense vas te kyk.
