Two-wheelers, behave yourselves

2016-04-21 06:00

SOME time ago I wrote about hooligan bikers and what they must do, and not take innocent lives with them on the pillion seat.

One hooligan in question, who was responsible for taking the life of a young woman, and mother, has finally­ wiped himself out.

My sympathies go to the family (not his friends) for this unnecessary sorrow and expense.

I’m a biker as well and I have circumnavigated the border of South Africa. I did thousands of kilometres and got home without so much as a scratch on my bum. Why - because I’m not a hooligan biker.

So please, fellow bikers, behave yourselves, and safe riding - Africa Bike Week is upon us soon.
