Stop over for overseas riders - just putting it out there.
« on: June 27, 2016, 02:03:21 pm »
After nearly 3 years of saving and building I have recently finished a granny flat on my property which is going to be used one day for my son when he moves out.. seeing as it is "his flat" I said he can do with it what he wants, so he is keen to rent it out to bikers travelling through, looking for a place to stay. The money he raises will be put towards him paying for his own overseas riding trip either through Vietnam or South America in 2019 so rates are a donation towards his trip be it $10 or $30 everything will go into a kitty.

The flat is brand new and comfortable, fully furnished and suitable for a couple. Gas hob and hot water, It will have an open lounge, dining area, one bedroom and will include everything you need including access to a garage for minor services in need be. otherwise high pressure washer and a lube. No TV.. just board games and a fire to tell stories around the way it should be when travelling.

Braai packs and wood provided on request when booking

Ill post pics in the next few weeks but its really pretty much ready, just had its final coat of paint, gonna start moving furniture in over the next few weeks.

nice idea, good luck.

Together with 'Goose', (peter v.d. Linden) we have planned to make up a 'places' to stay board, which will be in my store, and one other Store...

each display board should have space for 16x A4 advertisements, and with a business-card holder below that, and GPS co-ordinates below that...

Will likely be free of charge to advertise, so will show-case 16 bike-friendly dwellings to our customers, BUT it will be limited strictly to a professional-looking A4 board advertisement, to stop the board looking like a pigs breakfast!

More later

Awesome.. that would be great.

Yeah, im not a vendor or anything on the forum so not selling it per se, its going to be based on a donation although he is hoping to make about R5k a month to reach his goal of R120k in 2 years which should get him enough money to setup a bike, ship it and travel for a year. .. if the guys coming through are broke, in a fix and cant afford a place to stay they are still welcome to crash for the night, that's part of paying it forward

Nice idea Muzz ....in fact since we now live in Napier - we often look for overnight opportunities in the Cape Town area (one can only stay with friends so....many times :-) )
