Post by: TrailBlazer on February 02, 2012, 04:11:49 pm
Eish!!! Unfortunately I have no pics of the old man on any bikes, but I do have a story about his last ride ever on one.

My dad used to ride one of the workshop's bikes or scooters, whichever was available when he had to go out on a call (he worked for Olivetti)

On this particular day he had to take the scooter (Vespa or Lambretta; can't remember which), and the only parking he could find when he arrived at the customer was between two cars with the back wheel against the kerb.

He finished his business and mounted the scoot, which wouldn't start, so he pulled  the choke, and twisted its ear, and kicked until the engine eventually fired up (it had probably flooded). I think a good deal of swearing helped as well  :)

The scoot didn't want to run properly, so he pushed it out from the parking lot into the traffic lane, put it in gear and started moving down the road.

At about this time the carb decided that it was going to clear itself, and the bloody scoot popped a wheelie. The old man's initial reaction was to grab onto the bars even tighter as the scoot came up, and he was thrown backwards so that the pillion seat was pressing into his stomach, and his knees were dragging on the road (in those days Safari suits were the in thing :o) ).

Within a few seconds he came to his senses and let go of the handlebars, picked himself up from the road, and started chasing the scoot, which by this time had fallen onto its right side; the throttle was stuck in the open position because it was lying in that side, the back wheel was touching the road, and the scoot was moving round in circles at a fair rate.

Eventually the old man got it shut down and moved out of the road, and an old toppie came out of a shop to help him. He asked my dad if he was ok, and when the old man said yes, the toppie looked at him with a twinkle in his eye and said "Bloody Hell, son, that was a spectacular piece of riding... would you mind doing it again for those of us who missed it!!!".

I think the old man nearly moered him, but the toppie helped my old man into the shop, cleaned up his knees, and offered him a lift back to the workshop.

When my old man got there, he hung up his helmet, and said "Never again."

To his dying day he never got on another bike

It was never in question that I would be a biker. My dad always encouraged me to ride... just ride and enjoy the freedom. Till this day he shares my passion when I get a new bike or go on a trip.

For some strange reason he never rode a bike  ??? Would have been so nice to go on a trip with him.  :( Hopefully my son can have those memories one day.

Not my dad's car he had a RX-2 rotor(and he gives me shit about all the toys....), and the boy is my late brother I was just a twinkle in my dads eye back then. My parents moved to WC end 1980, So I am the only true Capie in the Family.

They were on their way to a MX race apparently just north of Windhoek past the old coal power station.

I don't have an photo of my dad and his bike although I know that he had a James in 1947 but this photo is of myself and my first bike at the age of 15 in 1965. It was a World War 2 Harley Davidson 7-9 Horsepower with a foot clutch and a advance and re tart adjustment on the left throttle to adjust the timing while you drive. The hand gear lever was on the left side of the tank 1 N 2 3 .See also the rear tyre which was a car tyre. The 2nd photo is of my son and myself when we did a 13 350km Africa trip together last year. I have been riding bikes now for 47 years and God willing hope to still do an around the world trip.

Wonderful. When I see you guys like this it saddens me that my father and I never rode together. He was not a biker, although he always encouraged me to ride, made me the biker I am and still has a keen interest in my exploits, sharing it through my RR's and foto's. He's also 76.

My dad wasnt a biker either but he was an adventurer, to a degree. He loved the landscape this country had to offer and never voiced any desire to return to the UK.
He would certainly approve of the travels that we get up to. Wish I could share some of photos with him but he passed away many years ago.
Jupiter, he would have certainly approved of your love for solo rides, photography and 'setting the record straight'   :thumleft:

My dad hated bikes as one of his best friends died very young.
Yes booze and a Harley and a long coat on Blouberg beach does not go together too well. :eek7:
He was an adventurer and wonderer at heart though. Traveling on two wheels over continents would
have made sense to him.

Dis 'n great thread hierdie

my pa bly daar op Stilbaai en hy is nou 75. Hy is nie soveel van 'n avonturier nie, het in 2006 op ouderdom 69 die eerste keer in n tent gekamp, maar was 'n regte petrolhead op sy dag.

Hy het vir 'n hele paar jaar 'n 1959 Vespa Grand Sports gery soos wat ons vandag vandag as n dualsport sou beskou. Hy het op Heuningklip gebly in die Suurvlakte area, naby Herbertsdale, en daagliks met die Vespa Mosselbaai toe gecommute om die melklorrie te gaan ry. Na sy derde val (sonder helmet) op die albasterklippie Haelkraal grondpad daar net so voor Eight Bells het hy maar sy gloves opgehang.

As hy saans terug was op die plaas moes hy gaan jag, en met drie jakkalshonde en 'n geweer op die Vespa die veld ingeneuk opsoek na wild. Ek glo dat daar iewers in die familie 'n foto is van hom met die honde op die Vespa.

van al die mense in my familie en vriendekring is hy die een ou wat my die minste kak gee vandag oor my ongeluk waarin ek 9 weke gelede was.

Well my Dad was opposed to me riding powered 2 wheels, :( my mother, who ruled the roost, said it was O K, he needs to be independent :3some: and so after saving up money from tips gained from working at a road house as a waiter, remember those and drive inns? I bought my first "snottie" a 50cc DKW Hummel with a 3 speed gearbox and hand change. And so life proceeded.
I have 3 sons, all ride and so does my grand daughter. I recently went on a 2 week recce with my eldest son to Germany/Austria/Italy and skimmed through the corner of Switzerland. We hired bikes there and had an absolute ball. Money can not buy these pleasures.
LIFE is Wonderful.

2. Second one was one of the Breakfast Rides we  did. Stopped for a photo @ one of the lookout points on top of DuToits Kloof Pass.
3. Third one, was a ride that I did with my Pops on his Birthday last year. Stopped here near Teewaterskloof Dam.
4. Fourth one.... taken on the same ride & stopped for a photo on top of Francshoek Pass.
5. No.5 is Pops very proudly enjoying his newly aquired Honda VTX1300. Taken @ last year's Toy Run.

Hey there.. I actuslly started my bike riding in Welcom (OKE) in the 60's and my first bike was a Zundapp as well. I had the 100cc Twin with the forced fan cooled motor... We stayed in Dagbreek just around the corner from the Mobil Garage on the circle just over the bridge...

Also love it even more when his wife rides with him when we go out....  e need to do another long day ride again soon.... Nothing better than cruising the highways on a bike....

1. First one is when he popped around to show me Honda 750 Shadow "ACE".
2. Second one was one of the Breakfast Rides we  did. Stopped for a photo @ one of the lookout points on top of DuToits Kloof Pass.
3. Third one, was a ride that I did with my Pops on his Birthday last year. Stopped here near Teewaterskloof Dam.
4. Fourth one.... taken on the same ride & stopped for a photo on top of Francshoek Pass.
5. No.5 is Pops very proudly enjoying his newly aquired Honda VTX1300. Taken @ last year's Toy Run.

And May I just add that it's a real pleasure when We go for a ride together - My son on his bike & me on mine.. Also just oh so glad that he enjoyes the riding as much if not more than I do.. Also love it even more when his wife rides with him when we go out....  e need to do another long day ride again soon.... Nothing better than cruising the highways on a bike....


dpr, I really look forward to riding with my son. Thats him in my avatar so as you can see we have some work to do  ;D
We do ride MX bikes together but he is only 15 this year and wont be on the road for a long while. I just hope I will still be riding and have the spirit that you have. Respect  :thumleft:

PS, you mentioned the circle just over the bridge in Welkom. Wasnt Welkom known for having more traffic cirles than any other town in SA ?

Hey TT, that is  a great pic.

I love the fact the grandpa is in his shorts and grandma has her dancing shoes and fur collared coat on. Hope she never rode with that coat hanging down near the moving parts.

Cant help with what type of bikes they are but the first thought that went through my head was that it looks very Bonnie and Clyde.

Thanks for sharing  :thumleft:

Yup it was/is the only town in SA that had traffic Circles instead of traffic lights. If ridden properly the traffic had no flow problems... There was one at each end of every main road/junction...

Mother,

I am certain that I met your dad at the Long Tom pass cannon at the end of November 2012. The missus and I had stopped for a breather and a few pics when your dad and mom pulled in, I think they were driving a Merc?

Anyway, he told me about his plastic knees, and his trike back in the Cape?

Long story short, he helped by taking a few pics of the wife and I with our bike. Was great chatting to him, and when we left he took a little doggie out of the car for a pee-break.

Not my dad but my neighbour's (he's 87) father in the side-car. This was taken in Jan 1920 in Graaff-Reinet and the inscription at the back says they were on their way to hunt ostrich.

Here are three photos of my father and his bikes at various stages:

1. Racing at Hockenheim in 1937, as an engineering student. He preferred BMW 250 cc single engines in Norton Featherbed frames, as he found them more
   comfortable than the BMW ones.

2. He was a company commander of a motorised infantry unit, and here he (arrowed) is with some of his mechanics and the BMW R12 bikes (750 cc with
    pressed steel frames, and the first production bikes with hydraulically dampened telescopic forks). These were the predecessors of the R75, which was also
    used with a side-car (with driven side-car wheel). He always having to leave some of the R75 engines in Russia when they retreated. He was one of the
    few survivors of Stalingrad, (having been one of the about 800 specialists flown out of Stalingrad, before it was overrun).

3. On a Maico (MiacoMobil - a 175 cc two-stroke; after 1955 they were expanded to 175 and 200cc) in the early 1950s, on which my parents went on holiday
    trips. The German people were restricted to a maximum capacity of 250 cc after the war, (perhaps so that they could not start any trouble again?). My
    parents then emigrated to South Africa in 1955.

My father died in 2003 at 87, (never owing a bike in South Africa), but he hardly ever spoke about his war experiences in France, Poland and Russia, but he did engender a love for BMW motorcycles in me from a very early age, having taken me on a circuit of the old race track that used to be near Greenbushes, Port Elizabeth, (I think the Wedgewood country Club has been built over it), on a BMW R69 when I was three. Unfortunately I have no photographs of that event.

My wife and I went down to Nelspruit and we all took a ride to Kaapschehoop, ofcourse Dad swiped my ST1300 for him and mom, wife took her Suzuki VX800 and me took my dads (my old) K75 BMW. Was a magic day and wish there were more off them!

Thanks for sharing Dustbiter, being of German descent myself, I can fully understand that they were restricted to 250 cc, anything bigger would just been too tempting to add a Flamethrower or worse to the Facility. ;D

hi there was asked about my dad so just an update

the olman is 80 next month....

well two years ago we all (us and dad too)packed up and moved to Cape Town but thats another story all together
the last thing to move down was the trike and my couch so we decided a father and son trip to Cape Town would be in order,we flew up to Pretoria with our kit and collected the bikes at my daughters place.....when we got to Grasmere for petrol my dad was busy having a heart attack on his trike.....in his wisdom to not hold us up on the road he had not taken his water pills (didnt want to pee every five minutes)
next thing ambulance and rushing him to heart hospital in Alberton......i really thort this was it for him .... its not something you want to see is your dad trying to breath lying next to his trike
but being stubborn and hard arsed like he is and with help from the docs
three days later i checked him out and put him on his trike(to the shock of the hospital staff)
and we headed down to Cape Town.
the trip went well and we rode at his pace two days later we arrived at our destination

so since then my olman been battling a bit with his health so we dont do many trips like we used to around the country but rather a few short day trips here and there

earlier this year we did route 62 and i took him to the most southern tip he had never done that before....its our bonding thing to do a few nights out now and again

a few months ago they fitted a pace maker and he seems more energetic so hopefully we will ride more and i can post a few more pics

Earlier this year Olman and I took road trip up Route 62
stayed over in Oudshoorn then down to George had breakfast with my brother in Wilderness then took him to the most southern point of Africa as he had never been there....

we do more shorter trips because of his health but he still loves riding with me and is already packed two days in advance when we plan a ride

im certainly blessed to still be able to ride with my dad at his ripe old age

I miss not being able to do anything like this with my dad... he passed away 20 years back  :(

A major thumbs-up to your dad as well. Enjoy it "Toppie", and may you have many more safe riding miles

My dad use to ride a Honda CB 750 and later 900 in the early 80's. Its been a while since he had a bike but he joined me this weekend on a trip. 400km on a 125 .

This man is a legend in mt eyes.

On a previous trip he also joined on a borrowed xr600r. It was a 5 hour gravel trip.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171003/c7906d5f7479e3bdfda5b63c4c40b5c0.jpg)

Here is my Dad on his AJS 600 on the farm with a girlfriend. He was about 22
  He loved bikes and had a R50/2 after the AJS. When he got married, he stopped riding.

The second pic was on the sponsored AT that I had, he was VERY impressed with the DCT, you can even see it on his face. :ricky:
