Maybe 63Magic won't mind if I borrow Clive for a moment. My dad never rode, but if he did, this could have been us... the two Old Geezers are the same age  :ricky: That was a good day in my life  :thumleft:

That was a great trip, Gerard. Baviaans was special. And I enjoyed meeting some of the WDs I would otherwise never have met as well. :biggrin:

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.
Bum in the saddle, always.

Die politiek gaan dalk maak dat hy oud word. En dis die oorsaak dat hy min ry. :-\

This is a really Cool thread.

Here are a few of my Pops "DPR".

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.

My Dad 1966, matrix Vespa, he later moved on to a zundap (spelling???)and then a Suzuki 350 when I was born.

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...
My Ride is a Honda VTX 1300 - Not listed in bike list....( and why not may I ask Cruisers are also bikes)

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...
