Is this activity safe?
Since our inception in 2005, our fleet of 31 sidecars have transported well over 20,000 satisfied passengers & covered in excess of 1 000,000km without an incident. All our drivers have many years of experience & carry valid drivers licenses with a PDP endorsement (Public Driving Permit). This PDP is an extra safety check to ensure your driver complies with all the regulations required by the South African Department of Transport.
Is the business legal?
Because our bikes carry passengers for reward, we need to comply with the strict criteria required by the Department of Transport. All our vehicles carry valid Operating License Permits and, as such, are fully roadworthied, licensed & insured at all times. We are fully insured for General Public and Passenger Liability.
Are the any age restrictions?
No. We are happy to carry any ages from 0 to 100 and over. However, all adult passengers need to complete an indemnity form before departure & any passengers under the age of 21 need to have an indemnity form signed on their behalf by a parent or a guardian.
Do you supply all the riding gear?
Yes. We supply the coolest retro leather jackets, helmets & goggles as well as a complimentary bandana.
Can we drive the sidecars ourselves?
No. We no longer offer self-drive options.
Are you disabled friendly?
Absolutely. Our disabled passengers can even have their (collapsible) wheelchairs strapped on their sidecar, so, they'll be able to get around at the various stops en route.
What happens if it's raining?
We have a very flexible wet weather policy. Up until the day before the ride, if the weather looks bad, we will allow either a cancellation with a full refund OR a rescheduling of the date OR continue with the ride using our wet weather gear which is provided on all the bikes.
Where do your sidecars come from?
All our sidecars are decommissioned military bikes originally used by the Peoples Liberation Army of China between the early 1950's and mid-1970's. They are known as cj750's and are based on the old German BMW R71 used extensively during from World War II. Our fleet has been fully refurbished & modified to suit South African Road traffic requirements.
