A: In 2016.
Q: Is it your first?
A: Yes, it is my first bike.
Q: When did you start biking?
A: When I bought my bike in 2016. It was a good experience learning how to ride back then.
Q: Can you tell us about your first ride?
A: It was tricky and exciting at the same time. But we never learn until we try.
No one was born a rider so I always told myself that one day I’ll be a good rider like many we see on the road.

A: The big engine and the beauty of the bike attracted me to buy it.
Q: How often do you ride?
A: I ride all the time.
Q: Where have you travelled?

Q: Tell us about your outfit?
A: It’s very important to own one. It protects you in case you fall.
Q: What colour is your bike?
A: It’s silver.
Q: Is there something you’d like to change on your bike?
A: Nothing at all. Maybe, as time goes on I’ll think of something. But right now it’s still standard.
Q: How often do you get fines?
A: I have no tickets.
I’m cautious while on the road.
Q: Do you belong to a club?
A: Yes, Soweto Panthers.
