KZN 2011 and 2012
1st KZN Breakfastrun Jan 2011
Our first official run for the KZN ZX14 club was held on the 30.01.2011 and kicked off from the roof-top pub, the Firkin, at the Pavilion shopping centre. We had a good turnout for our first event even if half of the bikes there were from the Vaal. We made our way up the N3 and then branched off onto the M13 through Pine Town, then up the twisty Fields Hill passing the very scenic Kloof and Gillets. We then came off the M13 and made our way through Hillcrest along the main road and eventually come up towards Bothas Hill, where we arrived at the Pot & Kettle. Everyone was amazed and impressed by the stunning view of the Valley of a 1000 Hills from the veranda at the Pot & Kettle. (Some of the members enjoyed the trip so much, they did it twice . . of wat sê ek Petoors?? Tx, Colin and Cliffy for your help with the forgotten bag! Sandra)

KZN region had its 2nd major breakfast run, which was hosted by East
Coast Motorcycles. The breakfast run commenced from ECM and went to the Oaks at
The day was perfect for a good ride. We all met up at ECM, where we were greeted by the staff and dealer principal and invited in for an early morning coffee and biscuits - a great way to start the ride off, giving us the chance to meet some of the new members as well as members who had not been on the previous breakfast ride. ECM had also planned a breakfast run to the same venue but left ECM after us in order that the ZX14s could leave as a group.
At 7:30 all the ZX14 members lined up, with their bikes, outside ECM for the usual photos and it was a great sight to see. We had a good turnout of 8 bikes plus the ZX14 that Tracey (DP for ECM) and her husband were riding. I would like to thank Tracey for doing the ride on a ZX14.
After all the photos were completed, we
headed off through Umhlanga towards the N2. We followed the N2 until the interchange
and then picked up the N3 towards Pinetown and joined the M13, going up Fields
Hill, in order to avoid the
Eventually we rejoined the N3 and could let
the ZX14s now stretch their legs a little, showing where the 14 really shines. No matter if you are 1 up or 2, the huge
power that the 14 gives out does not miss a beat. We arrived at the Umlaas off
ramp and headed for
During breakfast, all members were thanked
for making this an enjoyable ride. I
would like to, once again, give a special thanks to the members that traveled
