    Default Iron Horse, safety event

    Hi All,

    Think Bike will have a stand at this event on Saturday the 26th, at Laerskool Helderkruin (which is situated off Wilgerood Road,
    Helderkruin, Roodepoort), Both Deon and Biker Mom will be manning the stand, there is also a ride for the day ending at the event from Highway Cruiser Clubhouse, situated at: 320 Ontdekkers Service Road, Ontdekkerspark, Roodepoort.

    This is a great opportunity we have been give to get TB's name out there in the biking community, if you are in the area or have time pop past.

    I would like to ask if any of the marshals if busy with our own duties, could come along for the ride, there is a R100 charge for the ride which goes towards rider safety. If you want to ride, please email me so I can send you the details.

    It was like a school fair, with a few bikers, and a PTA meeting in the corner

    There was a huge SPCA bike ride in Boksburg on Sunday. Thousands of bikers apparently showed up. It was like the ground was shaking when they came past my house. What I'm saying is, I find it strange that they would show up for SPCA, and not necessarily for a safety event.

    Because many bikers see themselves as indestructible and the best rider on the road.
