    Default Howzit from Alberton

    Hi gents & ladies,

    I recently acquired a bike and commuting daily from Alberton to Rosebank/Sandton.

    If there are other motorcyclists out there doing the same, let me know!

    Greetings

    I'm truly sorry to hear that!
    Where did it happen and at what time?

    Thanks AMZ! I am indeed enjoying my ride.

    I am now fishing for traveling companions on my daily route and to enjoy a vape or a cigarette stop along the way and share the sheer pleasure of riding to work and back with bikes. I also believe in the concept of safety in numbers hey.

    Lekker lekker

    Can't help you with that. My daily ride is nowhere near yours.

    Welcome to the forum.

    May you have many happy miles. Might I recommend going for some rider training? It would give you a bit more confidence in tackling the highway commute traffic.

    Ride safe, man.
    Ride so you can ride again tomorrow.
    From your friendly cager

    Hey... Welcome.

    I ride daily from Brackendowns to Wanderers. I usually leave at about 6:45 ish.

    My route takes me all the way up Klipriver Rd from Andries St... Left into Booysens Rd... on to the M1 North, and through to Athol Ocklands offramp, and then to Corlette Drive to my office.

    I will keep a lookout for you. I'm wearing a neon green/yellow HJC helmet on a blue Yamaha.
