Bike Tyre Warehouse is

Bike Tyre Warehouse is expanding ... and expanding ... and expanding ... A few weeks ago our lady in the Cape, Lorna, went off to the launch of BTW Cape Town, situated in the same building as Bike Kings Cape Town in Paarden Eiland. It was a well attended 4 day festival of all things motorcycles, Starting on the Thursday and ending on the Sunday with some great opening specials on all brands. They have a symbiotic relationship with Bike Kings Cape Town with both businesses benefiting from each other, a win-win situation for everybody especially the customers. The set-up is really well thought out with a well laid out accessories shop for customers to browse around while they wait for their tyres, brake pads, chains and sprockets to be fitted and when they finished shopping they can enjoy a great cup of coffee with a light snack at the in house coffee bar. Pop down to Unit 1, 46 Marine Drive, Paarden Eiland if you are in the area. The staff are well trained, professional, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and always ready with a friendly smile. Cape Town makes four branches so far for Bike Tyre Warehouse. Other branches include the very well established Midrand branch, essentially the head office which we have brought you a lot of news about in the past - then a month or two ago, we told you about Alan Hughes and the Port Elizabeth branch at Restitution Ave, Fairview, Port Elizabeth, which is growing from strength to strength. Then there is Eden Bike & Tyre down in George situated at 23 Cathedral St, George Central who are still getting brought up to speed with upgrades to their fitment centre and branding but do run the same specials and pricing and have the same stock consistency as the rest of the branches with equally well trained, enthusiastic and friendly staff. Then, a little bit on the down low because they are still waiting for all their proper corporate branding and so-on, the East Rand branch opened its doors in Boksburg and started trading thanks to the high demand in the area. We will bring you more details on that as soon as they guys are ready.

The occasion marks a 14th outdoor title – adding to the previous 14 indoor titles – taking his overall top-flight championship tally to a whopping 28. The season began with a battle against the pandemic, which had forced a major overhaul of the scheduled championship calendar and limited the amount of pre-season training that Repsol Honda Team riders were able to do. Things worsened with an arm injury picked up in the opening round of the world championship. Yet, in spite of everything, Toni Bou faced and was able to overcome these adversities, going on to clinch the championship title. Adding to the other 14 titles from the ‘indoor’ discipline, Toni now sports no less than 28 world titles since the unstoppable reign began back in 2007. Bou, aboard the Montesa Cota 4RT, reaffirmed the supremacy that has seen Repsol Honda Team dominate in trial competitions over the last fourteen years… Toni Bou said: “I really didn't expect to win the championship. It was a very tight trial, like all the others this year, so it was very easy to drop from first to seventh, so I could not afford to fail. I am super happy with this title, and even more so this year, which has been so strange with many training sessions and few trials. We have won both titles, indoor and outdoor, which I am very happy about. Now it’s time to enjoy and celebrate.” 12 Twelve Decals Kits The Reid family name is synonymous with Moto Cross and Off Road Racing in South Africa. Yeah, and when we said that, Teegan’s name immediately came to mind. Her folks have been very involved in dirt bike racing for years, developing and sponsoring, particularly lady racers over the years. Mom, Natalie, also does really top end decal kits for all dirt bikes under her brand 12Twelve. Even cooler - she can do you a personalised scale model of your bike in your own personal livery, (A really great Christmas prezzie idea), along with a bunch of other really amazing personalised stuff. Give her a call on 082 338 9077 for all your custom decal needs. Sole Racer Key Rings Dad, Mark makes really natty personalised key rings in the shape of your number board with your race number on it in your race colours. We got one from him the other day with our Dirt & Trail logo on it, needless to say it caused a bit of a bun fight in the office as to who would get it. He also kindly donated 30 extra units as give aways to our readers, watch to see to see how you can win one for yourself, they really are very cool. Mark tells us that they are being inundated with orders from all over the world. He also tells us that he is busy developing a few other very interesting products that we are not allowed to tell you about right. Suffice to say that we will be first in line when they hit the market, but to order your key rings so long you can call Mark on 082 462 5656.
