Intro. Keeping the wheels turning...

September Issue 2020

September. Spring has sprung.

Lockdown is almost done away with.

Brad Binder made history for South Africa

and KTM.

How much better can it be?

Well - even better because we managed to get

RideFast and Dirt And Tail Magazines back into


How cool is that?

And there have been some changes with Rob

Portman moving along to start his own electronic

media stuff - we really do wish him well.

Meet the team:

Kyle Lawrenson rejoins the Motomedia fold - so

we welcome him back...He has been with our

group on and off since he was in high school - a

great rider and his design work has come along

in leaps and bounds.

Stefan van der Riet joins us fresh out of varsity

with his unique eye for Photographs - he is an

avid motorcyclist which always helps.

Sean Hendley is an old Ducktail who has been

around bikes since he was a tjoggertjie. You

cannot beat knowledge and experience - he

brings all of that in.

He is going to make sure that we don’t go too

awry with all of the editorial.

Glenn Foley is the handsome one - he is the

slowest out there, takes blurry photos, his

spelling is wobbly - good spelling but it wobbles.

He somehow manages to keep the ships sailing.

Then we are going to draw on the talents of

some very experienced riders out there.

Shado Alston goes fast, goes slow and

understands the mechanics that go into

motorcycles. And he writes really well. Check out

his thoughts on the new Blade this month.

We have worked with Donovan Fourie from The

Bike Show since he was in primary school. He

is one of the most knowledgeable motorcycle

people around and he brings his unique sense

of humour with him. Just read his Moto GP story

this month.

And we don’t forget the ladies - Mieke Oelofse

and Michelle Leppan both have much

experience on the road - they will be roped in for

rides and opinions often.

For the really fast stuff, AJ Venter and the Agliotti

Brothers and many others have agreed to give

us a racers input... so that’s going to be cool.

Exciting times - and this is going to be a real

team effort from all of us to deliver what you have

come to expect.

Please keep in touch - any queries,

Having shed its skin, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R is now a

leaner, meaner and an even more menacing hyper-naked bike

than ever before. Mounted into an all-new chassis, beats an updated

version of the renowned 75 degree, 1301 cc LC8, V-Twin

heart, taking THE BEAST to the next level.
