The history of motorcycle clubs in South Africa, dates back many years. One of the oldest clubs in the country was founded in 1957 – only 9 years after the scooter was first manufactured in 1946. Since then, the culture of riding motorbikes – whether for daily commute or weekend leisure – has grown significantly in the past 60 years.
No matter the reason for riding a motorbike, an enthusiast will try to convince you that there are very few things in life that are as exhilarating as cruising on two wheels. For many, this may very well be the case, but it’s important to be aware of the associated risk involved – safety of the biker as well as of the bike, as statistics reveal that motorbikes are not necessarily safer from theft than motorcars.
To put this into context, in 2017, over 40 000 cars and motorcycles were stolen around the country. This indicates that it’s not just cars that are being targeted by criminals, but that motorcycles are at risk and motorbike owners need to ensure that their bikes are protected.
When you consider the body of a motorbike, it seems almost impossible to have a tracking device installed.
