How did you get involved with Cape Sidecars?
I am an avid motorcyclist, who loves taking a drive whenever I can and not even knowing where I am going to end up. With my adventures, I’ve always seen the sidecars driving around Cape Town. It looked like amazing fun and I decided to pop in by Tim to find out more about the sidecars and how to become part of the group.

Where were you born and raised?
I was born and raised in Porterville, Western Cape. My family and I moved to Ceres in 1998, where we primarily raised our children and in 2013, we started afresh in Cape Town.
