It’s not a formal arrangement with set parameters – but you need to share your experiences on KTM’s machines. He wears the brand on his sleeve. A very down to earth guy – who just digs bikes. KTM scores because you will probably see Vin at all of their functions – like the Adventure Rally, bike launches and new dealership openings. It really is a win-win. From the SuperDuke GT, to the 790 Adventure. The 350 XCW dirtbike to the manic SuperDuke R – he rides them all. A motorcyclist to the core – who has Gautengs ear. How cool is that? His opinion on the Duke R – “Flippen amazing! I love every second of the bike. Even if you can’t wheelie it makes you want to try!” “I have used this one on all the breakfast run routes, all over JHB as often as I can – and every time I climb off – my hands are shaking and my face is one big grin.” This bike is not just for the race lunatics out there, I am probably one of the most chilled riders in the world. I’m the guy who wants to look Badass. Your typical market for a machine like this.” KTM is ready to race for sure! But for a normal guy like me – this is a great bike to ride! You can follow Vin on his instagram handle @vindeysel Great guy. Motorcycle enthusiast. Can’t go wrong… This Bike was fitted with All the KTM power parts you can think of He started with one of Gautengs biggest stations, 947 on the breakfast shows as well as the Drive Shows. He was appointed and became manager of the Audio On demand and podcast department. Recently, he made the decision to go it alone – he now runs his own online sound and lighting store (bounceonline.co.za) and he freelances and produces for 947. His repertoire is huge! 20 years in the music bizz introduces you to many wellknown artists. He’s worked with Locnville, Zebra And Giraffe, Matthew Mole, and loads more. He mixed and mastered all the Ministry Of Sound albums for 5 years and – naturally he has done a lot of his own stuff – and has sold almost a million albums that he has worked on in his time. So chances are pretty excellent that, unless you live under a rock, you have heard his stuff. He also happens to like motorcycles – and has been on bikes for as long as he can remember. He has his dads GPZ550 stashed somewhere in his garage and plans are afoot to get that back to original condition. When he finds the time. That’s the bike that got him hooked. A CBR600F was his first purchase, but – as you do, he outgrew that and it was traded on a 1098. A few months on that and it was time for an R1. The R1 was around for a bit until he found an Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200. Then he rode the KTM690 and fell in love with orange. He was noticed by KTM’s marketing manager – and the rest is history. A few years ago, KTM roped him in as a KTM ambassador. A normal everyday guy without any racing pedigree to speak of who just loves bikes. How cool is that! Being an ambassador means that your job is to expose the brand to traditionally non-motorcyclists.
