RIDEFAST SEPTEMBER

Danny Mulder founded Linex Yamaha

way back. He is still in the shop spreading

motorcycle joy.

But the most fun of all is trying

to knock your mates out of the

saddle with the loud barking

percussion emitted from that

Yoshi with a well-timed quick

shifter induced gear change.

Go and ride an MT09, you will

understand what I am getting at.

Even the Tracer and the Tracer

GT are great to ride, the

fairings keeps you cocooned

from the wind and the slightly

longer wheel base does make

them a bit more stable under

acceleration and in corners.

And, if you are into the whole

comfy tourer market but still

enjoy superbike like performance

and getting your knee down in ET

then the GT is the way to go.

Get down to your local Yamaha

dealership and work out which is

your favourite MT.

Motorcyclists

are the greatest peeps!

Aletta Theron received the devastating

diagnoses of cancer on the 24th of

January 2020.

She then underwent three sessions of what they

call the “Red Devil” treatment and thereafter,

twelve sessions of chemotherapy. After

completing six chemo treatments, the results

of Aletta’s scan indicated that the cancer was

gone! This was incredible news and Aletta then

completed her last 6 sessions of chemo.

As expected, the chemo took its toll on her health

and general well-being, yet she always remained

brave and never complained.

On Saturday, the 15th August, a group of

lady bike riders decided to celebrate and

acknowledge Aletta for her courage and strength

of character. The ladies came together from

various parts of our beautiful country – Boksburg,

Rivonia, Pretoria, Fourways and even all the way

from Middelburg, to surprise Aletta. The riders

met at Total Garage on Atlas road to start the

morning with a Mugg & Bean cappuccino and to

plan the surprise meeting. It was then that two

ER24 ambulances pulled into the petrol station

and began chatting to the ladies and admiring

the beautiful -2wheel machines.

Once they heard Aletta’s story and the reason

for our gathering, they did not think twice and

decided to join in our mission to show Aletta

that she is special and admired by all of us for

her bravery and courage. Stephan Schoeman

from Pick ‘n Pay Farrarmere, donated the most

beautiful bouquet of flowers and pot plants to

hand over to Aletta. And what a surprise she got!

The arrival of the bikers and two ambulances

ensured that there was not a dry eye in sight.

The heartfelt emotions that were shared that day

by one brave lady, seven lady bike riders and

four ER24 paramedics will be cherished forever.

It was a brief encounter yet it will stay with Aletta

everyday of her life going forward. One small,

random act of kindness showed Aletta that the

world is filled with love, care and support, at a

time when she least expected it.

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act

of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no

logical end.” – Scott Adams
