About Jan’s bike:
My current bike is a 1981 BMW R100RT and I bought it because of the retractable factory fitted spot/fog lights – only very few of them left around. I have owned it since 2011. Obviously some work had to be done to the BMW … The paintwork was restored and I made repairs on the clutch and gearbox, The Fork tubes also needed to be renewed.

Favourite routes
One of my favorite routes is down from Gordons Bay to Rooi Els and Betties Bay back to Cape Town or via the Theewaterskloof dam and Franschhoek.
First bike:
The first classic bike I owned in Cape Town was a 1980 BMW R100RS.
