The highlight on the Classic Motorcycle Club of Natal’s events calendar is their Natal Classic, a Reliability and Regularity Trial over a total distance of approximately 500km for motorcycles that are at least 20 years old.

It is a gathering of fellow “old bikers” with the common interest of veteran, vintage and classic motorcycles and to enjoy a fabulous weekend.

Riders who participate come from all corners of South Africa. Some take it seriously and achieving a good result is paramount and their steeds are equipped with superbly designed and crafted aluminium rally boxes with an array of expensive and fancy looking stop clocks. The not so serious have roughly built and rickety wooden boxes with a couple of miss-matched kitchen-type timers on their bikes. Those just in for a good time have, at best, an old wristwatch, sans strap, affixed to the rally box with insulation tape or Prestic!

Having a fun ride, enjoying the company of fellow classic bikers in one of the world’s most picturesque settings, the Natal Midlands and Central Drakensberg Mountains, is surely the overwhelming attraction.

The ages and makes of the bikes are as varied as the ages of the participants and it is amazing how reliable these old motorcycles (and riders) are!
