August 2019



It's amazing how quickly time flies when you are having fun, well some work and lots of fun.

A huge thank you for the continued support from all the members, the Durban Free Chapter is growing from strength to strength.


It's that time of the year when the member subs are due, please don't forget the cut off date for renewals to remain part of this amazing family is the 30th August.

Spring is a stones throw away, and with the warmer weather hopefully more riders will dust the cobwebs off their bikes and attend the weekly breakfast runs.The Saturday morning rides continue to be well supported, with regulars, Johan M, Chris, Granville, Gordon, Len and new regular Neil.

Meet a DFC Member:


1. When, where & what did you first learn

to ride?

My passion for motorcycles began at a very young age. I bought my first one when I was 16 years old – a Honda 50 cc buzz bike! Since then, I have had off road bikes and scooters through out my life.  The freedom of the open road with the wind in my face has always thrilled me.

2. When and why did you buy your first Harley Davidson?


I purchased my first Harley-Davidson, a 1200 Sportster, in 2008. The bug bit and I upgraded to a Dyna Wideglide in 2010 and eventually, my present bike, a Heritage in 2019. Buying a Harley is not just about riding a bike – it’s also about joining a lifestyle and becoming one big family. 

3. What has been your most memorable ride?

My most memorable ride was my recent trip to the Namibia to join the Skeleton Rally. Riding through the dessert on a Harley was an unforgettable experience.

4. What is on your riding bucket list?


 There is still a lot on my bucket list – I would love to do the West Coast….. and Tuscany ……. and  lots more!

Thank you Chris for taking the time to complete our "Meet a DFC Member" interview! 


Our continued effort to meet the Free Chapters saw us hosting the West Rand Free Chapter at Monks Cowl Resort.  This was attended by 42 Free Chapter Members, 16 from the DFC and 26 from the WRFC.

As expected the accommodation and service at Monks Cowl was exceptional and the buffet dinner was one that our members will be talking about for a while to come.

Fun was had by all that attended, even though there were numerous fines, not forgetting Siggi and his trusty snuff machine.

Our events are only successful because our members are committed and supportive. Without their support these events do not happen.

Next Dine and Dos:

The Christmas Function this year will be held at the Rawdons Hotel & Estate in the Kwazulu Natal Midlands.

This Hotel is home to the famous Nottingham Road Brewery.

Date: 23rd November, overnight function returning 24 November.

* Please confirm and pay by the 01 November!
