Bike or Wife?

I never thought I would be the type of women that would climb on the back on a Motorbike, until I met my fiancé. I become very intrigued, the first time I climbed onto the bike, and at the same time I was very nervous. Heinie was the one that encouraged me to ride with him, ensuring my safety and made me feel comfortable enough to climb onto the motorcycle. I have never regretted a second.


My life changed so much, and I became adventurous.  I have seen so much, and have been to so many places on the back of the bike, and this blog is to encourage other women to join their partners.  It brings couples closer and quality time is spent together.

Heinie has a BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycle, which is more comfortable than a super bike, especially for a pillion.  It is so comfortable, that sometimes, I actually struggle to keep awake, which can be dangerous, however I always tend to hold on tightly, even if my eyes are closed. We have intercom headsets, that enables us to talk to one another, and if I become very quite, then Heinie starts speaking to me, to ensure I am still awake.

Before you climb onto the motorcycle, safety is key.  Please ensure you have the proper apparel to protect you.  The most important is the helmet, gloves and the jacket.  I have a three in one, which assists for cold, and rainy days too.

The trips that we share, are to areas of the country that anybody driving a car, are not always able to see.  We often try to take the roads less travelled.

These places are so picturesque, that we decided to start writing about them and sharing our adventurers journey together.

We are a couple, who love adventure, traveling South Africa, and other places on a BMW R1200GS Adventure Motorcycle or any means of transport, encouraging more couples to do things together and to explore and live life to the fullest. Sometimes we explore other countries too.
