JHB: Villains morn the loss of Rose Bekker

On the 22nd of September 2012 the treasurer of our Johannesburg Chapter, Rose Bekker, passed away peacefully after a short struggle with cancer.

Rose never complained and was always keen to join the club on rides and jols despite her illness. Rose’s smile, cheerful attitude and spirit will be sorely missed by the Villains, her family and friends.

Eleven members from The Villains Jo’Burg attended a really well organized and entertaining rally in the picturesque Pilgrims Rest, a big shout out to “Chicken Outfit” for organizing such a cool Easter weekend.

General: Educational note

Many of us, while riding and we see a biker next to the road, will slack down and see if he/she is ok, not knowing if they have bike troubles or just having a smoke! Well, an international “HELP NEEDED” sign is by putting your helmet behind your rear wheel of your bike if you standing next to the road. The helmet behind the rear wheel on the ground shows that you need assistance.
