Shared Riding Pleasure
“to foster fellowship, through the safe, supportive and responsible riding and enjoyment of BMW motorcycles, in a courteous manner”
When you join the BMW Motorcycle Club Pretoria you don’t just become a member – you are now part of our family. This is a home where you can share your passion for the BMW Motorcycle brand and living it out with like-minded people. Founded in 1995, the Club with its hundreds of members is proudly affiliated with BMW Clubs Africa and BMW Clubs International.
We maintain the personal touch by offering dozens of rides and events annually that offer opportunities for tar and dirt riders alike to explore our beautiful country, make lasting memories and forge lasting friendships.
Although there are many opportunities available to ride with others, not all rides are created equally. For more than two decades the BMW Motorcycle Club Pretoria has perfected the art of planning and executing first class rides for its members.
The Rides Committee, consisting of experienced and passionate tar and dirt riders, assumes the responsibility for planning the annual Rides Calendar. Each ride is allocated to a Rides Committee member who takes care of every little detail – from the actual route that will be ridden, to the catering arrangements at the destination venue.
A ride leader manual containing the wisdom of the Club’s many veteran ride leaders ensure that all the important aspects of a ride is considered and planned for. The Club has proven methods for riding in groups and sweeps ensure that nobody gets left behind. Nearly every ride is recce’ed in advance to identify route difficulty, potential hazards and alternative exit routes to make every ride a safe, enjoyable and memorable experience for members.
Training and Safety
Riding a motorcycle is inherently more dangerous than driving a car. You are exposed to many potential threats ranging from unpredictable motorists to stray animals and road hazards, to name a few.. It is therefore critical to be prepared to handle any potential threat you may encounter on your journeys. Training is not limited to only learning how to ride your motorcycle better and safer, but includes a number of other focus areas that will take your riding experience to the next level.
Lifestyle and Engagement
If a problem shared is a problem halved, then a joy shared must be a joy doubled! Going on a solo adventure has its own appeal and rewards, however people are social animals that want to connect and share. Perhaps you recently bought your first motorcycle and wonder if there is more to this lifestyle than the typical breakfast run to Cullinan or Harties, or maybe you are looking to expand your horizons by learning more from other motorcyclists that have been around the block a couple of times…The Club provides a home where like-minded individuals can enjoy their motorcycling together and make lasting friendships along the way. This is made easy through various digital interaction platforms social events for members and their families.
The Club has a lot to offer its members, and we believe as much in giving as we do in receiving. With the Club’s supported charity organisations and other wellness events, we value and appreciate your support and participation even more than just accepting an occasional donation (although every bit helps those in need). Whatever your means and ability, please grab an opportunity to join us and give back to your community.
