The idea was to experience South Africa organically and get the vibe of a place instead of just tearing through it at break neck speeds with some kind of destination or goal in mind. So, when we finally managed to shake up some Harley Davidson demo’s after much bowing, scraping, begging and pleading, we decided that would be our plan. A couple of proper American muscle cruisers and some like-minded lads we would head out and explore south of Jo’burg. We decided on the south for two reasons, firstly the new kids in H.D. fold, ROC Harley Davidson, who gladly loaned us the bikes, are based in Alberton which is basically the start of “The South”. Secondly, we haven’t really been out that way for a while and there is some brilliant cruising to be done between the mountains of the Suikerbosrand. 42 RIDEFAST MAGAZINE FEBRUARY 2020 RIDEFAST MAGAZINE FEBRUARY 2020 43
