1 December 2020

It’s December and we are officially in the home stretch of 2020! With most of this challenging year behind us it’s time to seize the day and make the most of what remains of this year. But not to worry… we have you covered with some exciting possibilities to safely enjoy your motorcycle in the company of our amazing BMW Motorcycle club family.   Read all about the upcoming club night this Friday, the upcoming December rides, and read on until the end to see how you can make a much-needed difference!  
Club night social – Friday 4 December 2020 18h00 for 19h00  

Please join us for the last club social evening of 2020 at the club house at Bavarian Motorcycles.  As usual you can expect all the latest news and updates and enjoy a meal, drink and the company of your ‘other family’! We have arranged some amazing jaffels and we will have our gin special running again. We even arranged for more berries – especially for Anzel ;-)  

Chairman’s Dirt ride to Leopard Lodge – 6 December 2020 07h00 for 07h30*
Departing from Bavarian Motorcycles, Centurion Gate Shopping Centre

Please join me on the last official dirt ride adventure for 2020! The tar and dirt groups will meet up at the stunning Leopard Lodge in the Magalies area for a splendid buffet breakfast. For the dirt ride, prepare yourself for some magnificent riding in a rather unexplored area with winding dirt roads and good 2-spoor tracks. There are also plenty good photo opportunities, so be ready to capture some stunning memories!

And guess what..? I’ll be going back to my roots and lead the ride on the magnificent BMW GS Adventure!!  

Chairman’s Tar ride to Leopard Lodge – 6 December 2020 07h30 for 08h00*
Departing from Bavarian Motorcycles, Centurion Gate Shopping Centre  

The legendary Sias Wagenaar will be taking the tar riders on a beautiful loop across the Magaliesburg area towards Leopard Lodge. We have to take his word that this promises to be one of the best rides you’ve ever had! The plan is to have the tar and dirt groups reach the venue at the same time, so prepare for a good old-fashioned “klub kuier”!

Click on the links above to get all the rides details on the club website forum. The details will also be shared at the club night social on Friday evening.  

* We are keeping a keen eye on the weather. Although it is looking good, we may decide to depart a bit later. The route can be adjusted to accommodate our arrival time at Leopard Lodge.  

Bonus Brauhaus Ride! – 13 December 2020  
Yes! We have one very last tar ride to close off 2020 in style! Thank you Nico and Deon for arranging an outing to Brauhaus Africa. More details to follow… but book out the date so long!  

Annual Christmas Wellness Drive  

In proud tradition we want to share this season of giving with those that are least fortunate. The Kefilwe Thusano Empowerment Trust consists of a hard-working team that aims to uplift the Elandspoort community to reach their full potential. But they need help… and lots of it. As an extremely impoverished community they are barely getting by, and with the additional impact of Covid-19 their prospects have even gotten worse. They don’t ask for gifts or toys or even clothes. They need food…  

With your generous and selfless contributions we have managed to assist the Elandspoort community over the last couple of years. They have earned our admiration and trust to make the most of every cent and apply it where it’s needed most. So we are asking your assistance in the form of a donation or contribution towards this cause. The Club’s main committee decided to allocate a seeding fund of R5,000 towards this wellness drive and we are counting on your support to help make a meaningful difference in the lives of those families. And with our 50% discounted early bird renewal fees there might be a couple of Rands laying around and waiting to be put to good use!  

Kindly make your contribution via EFT to:
                BMW Motorcycle Club Pretoria
                FNB Cheque Hatfield 252 145
                Account 5585 0011 822
                Use “Elandspoort” as reference.  

If you prefer to contribute in kind, please contact tom@bmwclubs.co.za for information on what foodstuffs they need and for collection arrangements.  

Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy initiative. From one family to another…  

Early Bird Membership Renewals – NOW OPEN  

A friendly reminder that the Early bird membership renewals are open, but only until 31 December 2020.  All existing members that renew during this period won’t only do this at the 2020 rates, but qualify for a 50% COVID-19 discount on their 2021 membership fees!  Please note that you must be a fully paid-up 2020 member to qualify for this special discounted early bird renewal.   If you are not yet a member, or haven’t been a 2020 member due to (*cough cough*) circumstances, you can still apply for membership at the 2020 rates and joining fee. The 2021 rates  are going up, so better make your investment now and make it count! Anyone that joins the club now gets the rest of 2020 free!  Forward your proof of payment, or any membership queries to membership@bmwclubs.co.za.    
We are looking forward seeing you at the club social on Friday and the December rides. Until then, keep it safe – whether you’re wearing a mask or a helmet!
