BIKING is rising in popularity in Mzansi every day. We are seeing more second-generation bikers coming out of our townships.

At seventeen years old, Pontsho Mokoena, from Deneysville, on the shores of the Vaal Dam, is one of the youngest bikers in SunLand.

A: Hyosung GT 250.

Q: Is it your first bike?

A: No, it’s my second.

Q: How long have you been riding?

A: For three years.

Q: What colour is your bike and why did you choose it?

A: It’s black and I chose it because I love it. I always wear some black to match my ride.

Q: Does your bike have a name?

A: Black Beauty.

Q: Do you have any fines?

A: No, I am careful on the road.

Q: How often do you ride?

A: I don’t have a fixed schedule. The need to ride builds up inside me until I can’t hold it back any longer and I must go.

A: Safety is a priority for every biker. Always wear your gear.

Q: What do you think of Mzansi’s other road users?

A: So many motorists are bad on the road – they don’t check their blind spots or give bikers right of way. Instead, they try to push us off the road. Motorists need to respect us.
