Garden Route Ride On Classic UK Bikes 2009: Garden Route

Garden Route ride on classic UK bikes

Garden Route ride on classic UK bikes Bob Hopkin GARDEN ROUTE CORRESPONDENT ABOUT 80 British classic motorcycles gathered on the Garden Route to celebrate
the 27th anniversary of the British Motorcycle Association and the silver Jubilee of the Triumph Motorcycle Owners Club at the weekend. Starting on Saturday with a display on the Knysna Waterfront, the rally moved on to a welcome party at the home of bike restorer Don Daniels in Wilderness, followed by a stopover in Mossel Bay before returning to Cape Town. The rally was organised as a fun run for entrants, but was also used to raise money for charity. BMA secretary Gavin Allison yesterday said although many of the bikes were more than 50 years old, there had been only one minor electrical fault. Otherwise the event had passed without incident. The famous Triumph brand was rejuvenated and put back into production in Leicestershire, England, in the 1990s.
BSA and Royal Enfield motorcycles are still being built from the original tooling in India.
