The name says it all. One of Karoo Biking’s owners is Jurgen, an impossibly tall German fellow with a passion for BMW motorcycles. He’s travelled extensively through the country and also lived in Johannesburg for a few years. He couldn’t stay away for too long though and, after a short intermezzo in Cologne, returned to set-up Karoo-Biking.
Today, he calls Cape Town home and is delighted to have taken that step. Meeting people from all over the world, touring this awesome country on top of the range BMW motorcycles, exploring and making your stay unforgettable are a few of his favourite pastimes. He couldn’t wish for a better job.
He completed his degree in Germany before starting the long climb up the corporate ladder. Jurgen worked in a marketing and sales capacity for approximately 15 years consulting to television broadcasters on what equipment they needed for their studios. His work took him to almost every corner of the globe “but,” says Jurgen, “I can honestly say that you would have to look long and hard to match the South African landscape, weather and way of life.”
But the corporate world and all its stresses are history! Its now time
to take a look at South Africa and one of the best ways to
experience it: on a BMW motorcycle!
