H.O.G. Limpopo's Valentine's Rally 2019
"H.O.G. Limpopo members hail from Polokwane & Tzaneen and we live to ride! Our annual Valentine 1 Nighter is always a big favourite among our members and the 2019 event was no exception.
"Despite ominous clouds of rain in the sky around Tzaneen & Polokwane, our pack of 21 rider were on the road on early on Saturday 16 February . True to all the signs and weather reports, the N1 proved to be wet and windy. But we were all well-prepared with our rain gear on! As they say, if you don't ride in the rain, you aren't a rider! We travelled safely to our lunch stop at Toeka se Dae, just outside Bela-Bela.
"The lunch & refreshments gave everybody the perfect boost for the last part of our journey to Gabbata Lodge, just outside Pretoria on road to Cullinan. Upon our arrival we were welcomed by Wildebeest next to the parking area who initially seemed quite interested in the pack of thundering Harleys®.
"The afternoon was spent relaxing on the stoep of the dining area, and settling in to our beautiful rooms. Dinner was served at a specially decorated "Valentine table" where everybody had a wonderful time. The highlight of our evening - and whole weekend - was undoubtable the engagement of two of our members Marius & Corma. H.O.G. Limpopo Colors were also presented to three new members. A truly merry full time was had by all.
"Sunday morning included a wonderful breakfast before everybody took to the roads on their way home – some via the Harley Davidson Dealer Pretoria, some via the Menlyn Shopping Centre for shopping, some via border posts to Botswana and some via Colesberg & Cape town for a short vacation.
"The Polokwane bikes arrived home just after 14:00 and the Tzaneen bikes closer to 17:00.
"Thank you to all who attended, as well as our Rally organisers!"
